You *must* try the smoked chicken salad!

With hazelnuts, apples, cucumbers, and avocado, this salad is simply fantastic. The pasta with sundried tomatoes & goat cheese had an excellent combination of flavors, but too much sauce for the amount of pasta, creating a very intense flavor that I had to dilute with lots of bread. Still, quite delicious. The meatloaf wrapped in bacon is out of this world and very, very filling. A really reasonable priced option for regular dinners that have a high-quality home-cooked taste.

Has a rustic feel to it. It's a very small place. The bathroom is tiny as well. Have been there many times since I was little and the service and food have always been great. Things I frequently ordered included the sugar crepe, poached egg, and a salad with chicken and bleu cheese but I can't remember its name. The hot chocolate came in a bowl, which my friend and I found amusing. Being that it came in a bowl, it was a lot of hot chocolate. And my dad is crazy for their burgers, but I have never ordered one, at least in my memory. They are good though, but I preferred other things on their menu.

I went to Elephant and Castle with a friend last night, and we had only sat down, as the waitor told us to keep the noise to a minimum! I was so annoyed, we just left! Its not the place you want to go with you friend for dinner, and cant talk!!!! Terrible service, and too small anyhow! Def dont take a date, definiately not kids!! You're not allowed to talk!
