This store is on the corner of a very busy interchange a short stroll away from Clapham Junction with a great deal of shops from Primark to TKMAX surrounding it. The store is elongated and thin along the corner entering away from the corner you are faced by the till area and a impressive tiled wall. Seating continues in booths along the window into the corner. Narrow stairs lead upstairs to more booth seating and the toilets at the far end. The windows are large letting a lot of light in but with the draw back you feel like your in a fish bowl to the outside shoppers. There was a large number of people waiting for a table who were crowded around us which was a little off putting (and I'm certain the family who stood overshadowing our table were trying to make themselves even more off putting) and had to ask them to move when wanted to get up to get a beverage or sauces.

The chips were ok as was the corn on the cobb, the salad felt a little wilted and opaque lettuce wasn't the dream. The worst bit was the chicken was burnt something that plagued both our meals and was a disappointment. We spent a long time in this store making the most of the bottomless beverages.
