The best boss

This will be the strangest review. I am reviewing Henry Moss. I worked for Henry in the early 70s when he had the 3 shops in Carnarby St, and the warehouse. The showroom was in Gt Portland St. It was a wonderful job. I remember driving Henry around in his white Jaguar to and fro from Carnarby St to the showroom in Gt Portland St. I remember the faces of the staff but can't remember the names. I remember going to his house in Hampstead for a party. I would love to meet up with Henry and chat over old times. He was a superb boss. I live in Lincolnshire and own a holiday lodge park. Henry taught me much without knowing. my email is [email protected] I just hope this reaches Henry and we can meet up.

Shocking food

The food is appalling. Frozen, grey burger patties on stale bread. The smell from the meat was unbearable. Everything was sent back without even taking a bite.

I am so sorry you were not happy. Our burgers are high quality beef which we source direct from Ireland. My apologies once again.

Fish & Chips & Mushy Peas

We had the traditional fish and chips large portion which was hard to finish as there was more than enough. Foreign waitress was very polite and helpful. Overall an enjoyable place to eat.
