I arrived around eight. Could I please pop back in an hour, my name noted down.
A freezing cold evening.
I popped in Wild Food Cafe next door. Pretentious and overpriced.
Returning, still a long wait.
Two, maybe three groups of people, escorted to a table before me.
The service is appalling.
Not the fault of the staff. Home Slice is too popular, they cannot cope with the demand. An enviable position many restaurants would love to be.
Were it not for the food being excellent, and I being cold and hungry, nothing since breakfast, I would have walked out.
I am finally shown to a table.
I order a slice of mushroom pizza. Although tasty, not hot. Obviously been lying around.
Hungry, I order a second slice.
To drink, lager from a local brewery in Camden. This too is excellent.
Home Slice is located in Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden.
