Firkin on King
Great service. Our reservation gave us the best table too.
Great place to watch Chelsea football club play a game
Official home of the Chelsea FC supporters
The place was great since it was hard to find anywhere to go on NYE and they were able to accommodate us and take a reservation without a large cancellation fee. I hadn't been there before but they do have a very nice lower level with a couch and nice bar. Had I known i would have requested we eat down there, much cooler atmosphere. But service was decent, food was good and was with great friends. I would go again but hang out in the lower level. Great find!
There was no communication between Managers and Front of the house. We made group reservation for 6:16pm and arrived by 6pm. Decided to sit on our reserved table to have few drinks before everyone arrived. About 1 hour in, the manager or general manager calls me asking if I'm coming, i let her know that I've been there for almost an hr to which she replies that the hostess didn't inform her. OK, next.
After the rest of our party arrived, some people were heading outside to smoke for few mins and the hostess along with the server kept asking for our friends to pay before they leave, even though we weren't actually leaving. Also, there were 3 people still behind that table.
I asked the hostess to see the server whenever she had a chance but after about 10 minutes another server came in saying "Sorry, your waitress will be in shortly. She went to use the washroom". I don't think we need to know that kind of information.
Regardless, Firkin on King is a nice and chill place to be at for drinks. Will definitely go as a walk in but I wouldn't invite people on my account because some moments were awkward and quite embarrassing.
