Katherine's Qype reviews

Looks upmarket inside and out. Service was not though, had to ask bartender to put the ice in my drink first, then gin, then tonic. Do not feel I should have to explain how to make such a simple drink, especially as they charged me £5.50 for a single, with tonic from the tap.
Most of the rest of the staff seemed very affable.

My younger sister took me along on Friday and I really enjoyed it. Cute booth table and wood panelling made me feel I was in a Spanish bar/speakeasy. A combination I found pleasing.
Great cocktail list, served in jam jars, in a similar vein to the Meatwagon/Meat Liquor. The music was actually good, somewhat of a rarity these days.
Plus the staff were shockingly lovely. We did not have to pay the £5 door entry as we said we would not go downstairs and watch the bands, and they allowed it. Then when I asked to use a seat near a couple, he not only moved out the way so we could sit down, but got another one for my friend. I have never had anyone be so nice, especially in such a crowded venue. Thumbs up!

The new resting place of the Meat Wagon, success has gained them a flashy, central London location. I arrived at 7 and queued for an hour, I balanced this with the fact I used to travel all the way to New Cross and Peckham.
We sat in a lower level and had to overcome the fumes of newly varnished tables. Service was erratic, much faster if you are proactive and get your own menus.
The burgers are still great, but not amazing. Not sure if its atmosphere, they just do not taste as good as the very first time I tried them.
Cocktail list is well priced and executed.
Will probably return, but only if I know I can avoid the busier times. They currently are doing 90 covers but hope to increase it to 140. Wonder how that is going to work as it was hard to find seats as it is.

One of, if not the, best butcher in London. From the moment you step through the treshold, the smell alone tells you, you are somewhere special.
Prices are competitive considering the quality and location. They have a second branch in Borough market.
The cooked meat/deli counter also has a great range of products. Always end up buying a sausage roll/pork pie/quiche…
