    Disappointing. Food, not up to expectations Service, staff tried hard, but expereince was spoiled the end by having to wait ten minutes for the only credit card machine, whilst the witer was talking to a regular. We were told it is worse when they are busy!!!!

    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!

    You can't beat Bradleys for dinner before going to the Hampstead Theatre. Speedy service and a good menu including many varied vegetarian options. Food was excellent and all the extras like olives, bread and coffee cakes made the whole experience very special.

    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.

    I booked a table for four for a pre theatre lunch. We were welcomed and shown to our table. The service was really excellent And the three course meal we had was superb dining. 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.

A short menu with attention to detail, to satisfy the most demanding of taste buds. I remain a great Bradley's fan.

    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.

    Bradley's was excellent, as always. Hardly ever have the pre theatre because the alc is so much more interesting, they are now opening earlier which gives more time before a thestre. Have also been just for dinner, well worth it, particularly if one has to catch a train from Euston or St P Home baked breads are an added bonus. What a pity there is no longer a decent theatre nearby, but that has deteriorated so much.

    Even though Bradley's is an upscale location, we attended with our two children and the maître d' arranged for children friendly meals. A very good start. Each and every course was excellent in both presentation and flavor. The service throughout was professional and friendly. In terms of cost, it was a little on the high end but given the food and service, we will be returning. Absolutely excellent food and worth every penny. The best meal that I have enjoyed in quite a while.

    We have previously eaten at Bradley's and known it to be a very good restaurant aspiring to be something more than the run of the mill NW London variety. Whilst the food and wine were up to standard sadly the service was not. The young staff members were so uptight they were almost rude as they served us in stony silence. When a knife slipped and through a chain reaction break a glass of wine and inundate my father there wasn't a 'sorry' or acknowledgement of fault until we complained and got the head waiter involved. He proceeded to fix and smooth all - I can't recommend him enough. So go for a good meal, fine wine and if you get the more experienced waiter, great service.

    We visited Bradley's to meet relations for a Saturday evening meal. The experience was not as good as previously. Usually, we have the pre or post-theatre meal and food is good and service efficient. This time, our waiter was not proficient and had to be asked frequently for wine, water, bread etc. and he completely forgot to bring petits fours with our coffee. The menu had changed since our last visit and we did not find it as interesting or enjoyable. Things need to be changed to get back to the original high standard.

    The food and service here are exceptional. Always a varied menu with ingredients that make you think "How am I going to choose between all these dishes?" I have only a minor gripe - I wish it were busier to create a more buzzing atmosphere. If this was in Soho or somewhere with regular footfall, it would be the talk of the town and queues round the block. As it is, it's a secret gem where you can have amazing food with excellent service. Highly recommended.
