Scoff & Banter

This is a new little chain of restaurants around the Covent Garden area serving up British Soul Food.

A group of eight of us dined one Friday evening and thought for a casual friends dinner it was pretty good and reasonably priced. Don't get me wrong, I do believe there are "better" places in town but I really enjoyed my evening here.

Between us we tried a variety of different food, all centering around British classics such as Shepherd's Pie and Fish & Chips. A starter and a main per person left most of us full so we all skipped dessert.

The cocktails were good and strong, the wine list had plenty to choose from and the bar was big enough to retreat to after dinner and continue the night.

This place is better suited to groups than to couples as it's busy and quite loud, plus service can be slow, which is ideal in a group of friends who want to catch up but not so great for an intimate meal.

Happy Scoffing.
