My family came in for lunch today we ordered, not informed of a delay in food service. We waited for an hour for our food. When i went to the bar to ask about they delay the man dismissively appologised said it was being plated after checking. We waited another 10 mins - how long does it take to plate... More

When Marstons bought the Chequered Flag, renovated it and changed the name one thing they didn't do was to have the building double glazed. The exterior wooden window frames are now looking very shabby and unloved. On our last visit orders for food were taken at the table. Now you have to order your food at the bar. The inside... More

Just been to Bellflower, last time hear the place was called the Checkered Flag. It was a refreshing change to walk in to a place that was very clean, neat and tidy, no food on the floor and no dirty tables. Found the staff to be nothing but welcoming and friendly. Paul the barman very polite and courteous, had a... More

This was my first visit to the Bellflower, I must admit I found it to be a very clean & tidy restaurant along with very friendly & polite staff. I must say that I had a great 2 course meal which I thoroughly enjoyed indeed. I will no doubt make a return visit in the future.

I have been absent from the Bellflower for nearly 3 years now, because of the food and the staff back then! Returned today under duress with family. Complete fiasco, I ordered the chicken tikka massala - the best thing I can say about this is that it was "warm." I will go as far as to say, they couldn't have... More

One word, woeful. The place is dirty falling apart and the food is recycled rubbish. Yes its cheap but that's no excuse for poor standards.

Came here today for a Pre wedding meal with 15 of us. Staff were fantastic and friendly and even gave the bride a mini bottle of champagne. Food is great for the price loads and loads of choice and 2 for 1, it won't win a Michelin star but it's great for the price. There was also a great selection... More
