    We booked a lunchtime table for a pre theatre meal.The menu was varied and the three of us chose different dishes. The set lunch was excellent value and the food was superb. We were delighted to return to Bradley's and felt that we would revisit without attending the theatre, as the friendly staff and service make it an ideal venue for a special occasion.At no time were we hurried and the atmosphere is always welcoming.Thank you Bradley's for a lovely lunch.

    Bradley's qualifies as a destination in itself. Small but does not feel crowded, high ceilings -- were seated next to the glass doors overlooking garden. Enjoyed organic French Merlot -- inexpensive. Complimentary: lovely house bread and appetizers -- creamy/cheesy cauliflower croquettes, olives & capers. Recommend 3 courses if hungry -- servings small Mains: 1) Venison (Smoked in Pine with Celeriac Purée & Confit Beetroot) -- venison exquisite, accompaniments a bit sweet. Added side: Grilled Cauliflower Chimichurri: excellent. 2) Parmesan Flan, charred broccoli & Mushroom en Croûte: lovely Shared dessert : Crema Catalana, quince & cubes of pedro ximenez jelly. Small flight of chocolates to sample too -- hit the spot, thank you Bradleys!

    The long time owner is back in the kitchen, which has led to a huge improvement in the food, especially the a la carte. The vegetarian items are particularly good. The tables are rather small and close together.

    We love Bradleys - a local restaurant that excels at 'being local' and valuing their regular clients. But it is not just a local restaurant - it has a super ambiance, great food and excellent staff. The 'pre theatre' rush is great fun - but it is great at any time.

    We always go to Bradley's when we're in Hampstead. It never disappoints us. The food is always excellent and the pre-dinner menu is fantastic value. The staff are very geared up for pre-theatre and it's a very slick operation. The service is always fantastic and staff delightful. I'm sorry i don't know the waiter's name (I must ask next time!), but he is always particularly lovely. If we lived closer to Hampstead, we would definitely visit more often. Thank you!

    We visit this restaurant regularly as a pre-theatre option when we have tickets for the Hampstead Theatre matinees and the quality of the food and service are consistently good - I would usually fancy everything on the set menu, which helps! Would love to really go to town there and have an a la carte dinner one day but that would obviously cost a bit more! Highly recommended though!

    I always enjoy the excuse to eat at Bradley's before seeing a show at the Hampstead Theatre. They have an excellent pre-show menu, always served efficiently by very friendly staff. Whatever the show rates, I can rely on Bradley's to deliver a five star performance. I go there for treats occasionally at other times. Having more time means I can order and wait for the delicious fruit soufflé they serve for dessert.

The bill was very reasonable and we talked more about our dining delight than the show we watched! Thank you from the four of us.

    We had a very enjoyable meal, the food excellent, the ambience very pleasant (if a little too noisy ) and the service good although delays between courses were a bit too long. We chose 'a la carte' but I noticed the two set menus which look very attractive for what they consist of and for being reasonably priced. Certainly a good choice which we shall repeat and recommend to others.

    I chose Bradleys as it was near our hotel and the Hampstead Theatre. We had a fantastic meal with excellent service - very professional, friendly but unobtrusive. The food was very, very good, beautifully cooked and presented. We especially liked the amuse bouche and the petit fours. The atmosphere was great and for a couple from rural Suffolk it was a real London experience.

    I was delighted to be able to get a reservation at short notice on a Saturday night only because it was August and the Hampstead Theatre is closed for refurbishment. And what a treat it was. I had the Prix Fixe menu and chose the Fish Soup and the Veal Escalope. Both cooked to perfection. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is calm with a gentle buzz as diners really enjoy their food. I now look forward to our next visit - always a pleasure.

    Ambiance is nice, love the open doors to the lovely green courtyard. Seating is not very comfortable, the tables are too small and the large plates do not fit on it (push it to where it should be and the person across might have dinner from their lap). The food was a disappointment. Bad oyster and then undercooked fish served with a side which was not accurately described on the menu (dinner had allergy to one of the ingredients). No apology received or any attempt to remedy situation was offered even when spoken to on the way out. Needless to say, this local venue will be avoided in future.

    We had a delicious business lunch for a mere £15.50 plus wine plus coffee. Service was very good and the atmosphere relaxed. I have dined at Bradley's several times during the past year and have always been very satisfied with their offering. It is a particularly useful restaurant pre - theatre, if you are going to a show at the Hampstead Theatre. Bradley's start dinner early and know that you must finish the whole meal before curtain up.
