Written on: 03/04/2011

After reading many negative reviews for The Cabinet at Reed I was apprehensive about visiting but it was Mother's Day and my Husband had booked our table weeks ago.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by two happy waiters who were well prepared with the menus and very polite as we were shown to our table. The food arrived well presented and tasted fantastic! Although the tomato & chilli chutney took me by surprise (I think the chef likes chillies!)

Service throughout the… Read Full Review

Very disappointing. Pictures on web site do not reflect the actual dining area of the pub. We were expecting white linen and got paper napkins. The whole pub looked shabby and in need of a good clean!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2010

I had been to The Cabinet a few years ago on 4-5 occasions when it was created as a good quaility gastropub. Looking for a nice meal about two weeks ago we made a reservation. What a shock! This was not the same place (must be under new management?) - the service was by a group of teenagers, trying hard but untrained, and the food and menu were poor. A risotto was so badly prepared it was removed from the bill and the sauces on other dishes amateurish. The ambience of the original has gone… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2010

What was expected to be a fantastic evening for my wife and i plus 2 friends turned out to be a nightmare. We arrived at 7.30 and stood waiting for 20 mins until someone asked to take our coats , then a further 20 mins trying to attract the waitress attention for a drink. Eventually the starters arrived some half hour after sitting, then mains arrived somewhat different to what we had ordered. The red wine was fine actually very nice at the right temperature but the waitress had no idea how to… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/08/2009

On my third visit in five years to The Cabinet at Reed, a Saturday night in August 2009, I was accompanied by 7 friends, two of whom were celebrating their 57th birthdays. I had told them to expect really good food based on my previous experience prior to this but the reality was very different. Two of us ordered lemon sole which, on arrival, we requested the chef to de-bone. It took rather a while and when the food arrived back, it was lukewarm and in one case, the bones had been piled up… Read Full Review

Good to see a realistic review of this place for a change. Some people must be so easily pleased to write much positive about the Cabinet at Reed (which incredibly they do!) This review mirrors my own opinion of the sloppy and amateurish approach of the staff and the resultant disappointing lunching/dining experience. If a restaurant wants to "go posh" and charge West End prices for bar drinks,it is insufficient to simply dress the waitress up in a long, French white apron and the maitress D in black and white. The service and cuisine must then live up to the image. Neither do
