I had a nice time at Bad Egg on Sunday afternoon. Staff were really good at topping up drinks! Slightly let down by the food. Only two out of four in the group enjoyed their meals. I had the maple pancakes and they were almost inedible. There was quite a foul taste to both the pancakes and the maple syrup. This aside, it was a nice visit!

My friends and I had a great time but 2 things I would note to improve: 1) with Covid around, please make sure that when drinks are being refilled, the jugs do not touch our glasses - this happened a few times 2) my friend ordered fried eggs but they came poached Other than that, I would say the staff was lovely and food was delicious. Great vibe and I would come again!

I absolutely loved the bottomless brunch at Bad Egg. The service was amazing and my glass was never empty... Literally!! Food was incredible. We had the eggs benedict, the pancakes, the sausage and egg muffing and the sausage, bacon and stuffing hash. All of it was exceptional (apart from perhaps more hollandaise sauce on the poached egg). Can not recommend enough!

Hi Jon, Thank-you so much for taking the time to write this fantastic review! It's especially heartening in these weird old times to get this sort of feedback, so it really is appreciated. You've hit all of the different aspects of your visit with equal enthusiasm here, which is so lovely, too... though I'll feed back your extra comment on hollandaise to the kitchen squad (good to know!).

Hi Simon, Thank-you so much for taking the time to review us, especially as it's so thoughtful and positive! It was our last hurrah before Lockdown Mk2 on the Sunday, and we've been heartened to get such fantastic feedback from our guests. Thanks for your understanding on our levels of noise, too; despite having distanced tables and less covers than previously, we still have a (gentle) celebratory atmosphere on the weekends... Hopefully we'll see you again in the future, and - of course - take care until then! Thanks again from all of Team Bad Egg, Rachel (manager)

The portions in the bottomless were much smaller than if you ordered the same dish on the main menu. The drink top up was very efficient.

Hi Gemma, I'm really sorry to see this feedback up here, but thank-you nevertheless for sharing... We don't down-portion our Brunch dishes at all here, though the sizing of dishes does vary across the Brunch menu, to allow you to make the right choices for your two courses (the Acai bowl, for example, is much less heavy than a Bad Egg Burger Hash). I hope our friendly little Team helped you navigate the menu on the day, and we would always recommend having a chat with us at the table if you have any queries, or if you feel you're not quite enjoying the whole shebang. This said, if you have any further feedback about your meal (or specifically which dishes you didn't think were quite right) please don't hesitate to drop us a quick email to [email protected]; insight like this is really useful for us, and it enables us to pick up on possible shortfalls in our little business for the future! I know you marked us relatively low on the recommendations side of things, but I do hope we'll catch you again in the future (after this Lockdown situation), at which point we'll aim to show you what we're really about! Your comments on our service are - of course - very much appreciated also in this balanced review. Until that (hopeful) next visit, please don't hesitate to drop us any more feedback about your visit via email, and do take care. Thanks again for taking the time to review, And kindest regards, Rachel (manager)

I don't like to say anything bad at this difficult time for restaurants. But to be honest our food was really very disappointing on Sunday as you've asked. My partner's Huevos Rancheros was really very poor. The service was fine although we were a bit surprised that our server didn't check the food was okay when most of it had been left. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Hello Ben, I'm so sorry to see this review, and even more sorry that we weren't more on the ball with our response on the day... We're a friendly little lot who genuinely care about what we do, and for us not to give a check-back at the table or to check in with you on seeing how little you'd left is uncharacteristic, fo sure! As an extra note, your thoughtful hesitation to give negative feedback in these strange old times is appreciated, but when we don't get things right, we'd much rather know, so thank-you for reviewing! This enables me to touch base with our Head Chef about the Huevos, and with our Team about ensuring we're checking up on these things, even on a busy weekend. Every piece of guest feedback makes us better at what we do, so it really is appreciated. With all this in mind, I have full confidence that we can hit the nail on the head next time, and I would certainly urge you to return to see what were really about... Until a (hopeful) next time, do take care, and thank-you once again for taking the time to share your experience. Kindest regards from the whole Team, Rachel (manager)

Located in the center of London, you clearly pay for the location. Food is low-average and drinks are nothing special. You will have enough to drink as waitress kept coming to fill your glass, but it i overpriced. Not recommended.

Hi Jordi, Thank-you for taking the time to review here, though I'm sorry to see that we didn't exactly wow you on the day. Reviews like this make for sorry reading for us, and I'd be keen to hear any more specific feedback (especially regarding food), that lead to such a feeling of lack of value...

I hope you received a good check-back on your food during your visit too; we'd much rather fix mistakes or take feedback on the day. I totally understand this isn't always possible (and in some places, uncomfortable), however, we'd always encourage an honest chat with our friendly Team. We're a dedicated little lot, and it means a lot to us to get things right! I hope you'll return again nonetheless, as I'm sure we can impress more than this!

The atmosphere was lovely although a bit loud but that's too be expected. The staff was super friendly and would refill our glasses often which was great. The only downside was the food really, we got the "burger" and it could have been okay (nothing great) if a tub of mustard had not been dumped on it... even ketchup could not salvage this. I'm not very picky with food but it was hard to eat it. But we had the pancakes as a second courde and they were delicious. If there is a next time I would stay far away from the burger.

Hello Rachelle, Thank-you so much for taking the time to share this review, and in turn give us some genuinely useful and honest feedback. It's always great to hear our (very little) team were on the ball with top-ups, and were their friendly selves, of course... I am disappointed to hear this sort of response to our food, however, and I'm sorry that we weren't up to standard on that front. I'll touch base with our chefs about how enthusiastically we're applying mustard to our burger hashes; your comments offer useful and specific insight there, which is really appreciated! I hope you were checked back on during your visit, and I would always say to make sure you make us aware if we've made any mistakes, as we'll gladly fix things on the day, of course. I hope there is a next time for you to visit us, whether for more bottomless brunch fun, or Wednesday - Friday for lunch if you're fairly local! I would always encourage a return visit if not everything was up to scratch, as we'd be keen to show you what we're really about here at Bad Egg...
