Really good place to work if you dont have experience or a good English level, you will learn a lot about standars and food safety but the most important, you will learn how to work under a lot of pressure. Apply there, work for few months and run away a soon as you can. There are plenty of places in the hospitality business where to work with better salary and less pressure. No worth it if you have experience.

Cashier Front of House (Former Employee) - London
Everything chips in and works well together even when new people join. We have fun nights with the team and if we do well on the mystery shopper we can receive up 50.00 extra on our salary. If we do well as a team we get some money to spend and we go to out to a place of are choice. Every Friday is fun day where we can dress up in costumes, we also dress up on seasonal holiday like Christmas Halloween valentines day and easter. More time and energy you put into the job the more you get out of it.
Pros
Free lunch is amazing.
Cons
None that I can remember

Poor treatment from the management. The staff are not looked after as should happen in a business. Promises are made but not kept. HR was not helpful. High staff turnover.
