Service was very speedy and friendly. However, the food wasn’t great and lacked any real flavour. Pancakes were also pretty hard. The Prosecco was also very flat, think it would be better to leave big groups with the bottle!

HI Olive, Thanks for your feedback and taking the time to review us, we really appreciate it. I'm so sorry to hear your dishes weren't hot when received (hopefully your server was informed and fixed this issue straight away for you). We'll check in with the team to ensure our check-back stage is happening to avoid any re-runs of this. I do hope the other elements of your time with us were enjoyable and you'll give us a second chance another time in the near future. Until then, Take Care and thanks again, Kind Regards, Amy Manager

What a place. Perfect for the hangover recovery! The layout was nice and inviting. Staff are really nice and services is excellent. Staff explained the menu and yes your alcohol is topped up before you even finish it - awesome. Just make sure you are not driving! Food was tasty and portions was more than enough. We came from northwest to try this place and it did not disappoint. We will definitely be coming back again soon.

Was a fun, quick and delicious brunch venue. The hash pot was a bit cheesy for me- but very filling and tasty! I got a bit confused when booking about whether we had to have the set brunch or whether we could order off the menu. This is what we did and it was much better value- there is no way we could have eaten two platefuls each!

Hi Sam, Thank-you for taking the time to pen this thoughtful review, and share some feedback for us and for others. It's always great to hear when we do well and when guests have a great time, though I can't help but be a little disappointed on those food scorings... I hope you'll return to us (maybe even to get involved in some bottomless brunch madness, if you can be tempted...?), and soon, at which point we'll definitely aim for those fives across the board! Until then, take care, and thanks again from the whole Squad, Rachel (manager)

Hi Ian, Thank-you for rating and reviewing here, and offering some useful feedback in the process! We book up our set sitting times on the weekend, ensuring that each set has a full 2 hours before the next round begins, which is why our website only offered the 10am spot... Making sure we were ready for a fully-booked 12.30pm Brunch round. I would definitely encourage you to visit again and maybe give us a call if you plan to have a quick A La Carte visit, as we can manually override this and book you in from 11am-midday if we have room and you fancy a speedy visit! I'm sorry it was a bit of quiet session too there, but I hope you enjoyed all other aspects of you time with us. Until that (hopeful) next time, thank-you once again for taking the time to review, and do take care! Kindest Regards from the whole Team, Rachel (manager)

The food came very quickly but only one out of three of us was fully satisfied. The pancakes went down very well, but the burger hash was too cheesy and the shakshuka too heavy. In Bad Egg's favour, someone did come and ask why two of us had left food - hence the high rate for service. Given the good reviews elsewhere, we were somewhat disappointed.

Restaurant Response

Hello Veronica, First of all, thank-you for taking the time to review us on here and offer some constructive feedback. I am sorry, however, that not all of the dishes were enjoyed by all! Feedback like this is disappointing for us, too, and I hope that our friendly lot did indeed do all that they could to amend anything on the day if mistakes were made. I'll bring your comments themselves up in our next managers meeting, but I would definitely urge you to return, if just to see what we're really about! As a note for all here: please do feel free to quiz us all on our menu whilst you're here, and help us help you get the best out of your choices; the last thing we want is for anyone to leave disappointed, when we could have either switched things up or guided you towards something more suited to your taste. On that note, feedback like this is also incredibly useful to us in gauging how we could improve different parts of our menu and service, so thank-you once again for the balanced feedback within the review! Until that hopeful next time, I hope you had a fantastic New Year, and do make sure you hit us up in 2020 for a much more 5/5 Bad Egg experience! Kindest Regards from all of Team Bad Egg, Rachel (Manager)
