I have always wanted to eat here as it has been around forever!! Booked online for a specific time and our table was waiting. It was very busy so pleased we had a pre dinner drink elsewhere as there was nowhere to comfortably sit. The food is all English comfort food - cheese and onion pie, fish and chips, corned... More

We were first give a table in a walk through and had people constantly banging into my chair. We asked to be moved and we're put on a much nicer table. Very slow service considering it was very quiet. Bread and dripping okay. Mains awful - my husband has had better steaks in weatherspoons. It was small and flavourless and... More

Hi Wendis178, Many thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback from your visit this weekend. Please accept my apologies for our mistake with your egg. As we had to hard boil your egg to order once the mistake had been realized, this naturally did incur a wait time of around 8 minutes. I sincerely hope that our... More

I have been a couple of times to Mr Thomas's and it's been good (not cheap) but ok. However this time I went it was dreadful, the place itself was freezing...we had to eat our meals in our coats...the table was right next to the exit. I had the corn beef hash and it was lukewarm and over cooked. I... More

I have never eaten at Mr Thomas's Chop House before, but have eaten several times at Sam's and Albert Square. I nearly always have the corned beef hash because it is the best thing ever! Except that this time it wasn't. I could see it was different as soon as it came out, it was very mushy and lacking in... More

Traditional pub and restaurant. Dont listen to people who say its in need of a make-over. Its meant to be like that. Do not mistake it for the modern penchant of being "retro" though. Its just fantastic. Great selection of spirits and beers. Menu is great. Price is as per a city centre eaterie. Home made corned beef hasy, with... More
