  • Worst food experience ever

    I have been to Roadhouse before; twice in a small group and once with a friend and the experience was ok. This time it was myself and my fiancé and to say it was the worst food experience is being nice. We had to ask where our starters were and ask TWICE when we would receive our main meal. The service was just slow. We waited way too long and this was on a Wednesday evening!! I dread to think how it would have been if it was the weekend. When the food did come out it wasnt great and to be honest we wernt hungry anymore because that much time had gone by. It ruined our evening out and we were both very disappointed and upset. Given I have been there before it was a true let down and I'm not sure if I will dine there again.

    I went here for a catch up with a friend and specifically chose it based on the open table deal and location. The deal was extremely good value and the food very tasty! we both had burgers with all the trimmings. There was a live band on as well which were good but at this point it was quite difficult to hear each other ! as the restaurant was also quiet busy there was quite a big gap between our starters and main. This did not put us off though as the food and vibe were fun!

    I have been to Roadhouse several times and always for a meal and a chat with friends or family but won't be coming back. They now have live music (6 nights a week according to the website) which was so loud we struggled to hold a conversation without shouting. On top of that the service was so slow we left at 8.30 having not had our main courses which we ordered at 7.15. Had I knows the nachos we shared were to be the sum total of our meal I would have eaten more of them but was saving room for dinner! Very disappointing! To be fair to the waitress she was very sweet and did try to help but I think perhaps the kitchen staff were overwhelmed.

    booked table 6weeks in advance & arrived on time & was seated! Ordered cocktails which took 30mins to arrive! After that each set of drinks took an average 30mins!!! Our starter took an hour to arrive by this point was 9.30pm was then approached by waitress who told us we'd need to leave table at 10.15pm as a last minute booking was arriving & wanted our table! We hadn't had our main or finished starter! Manager Said he'd move us & give us free Drink. Dinner arrivd ages later and was poor! Felt rushed & annoyed by this point asked for bill all card machines weren't working had to pay cash! went to bar & ordered drinks was short changed £15 informed waitress who then lost her rag at us & shoved money back in hands! My birthday was ruined!

    A fun evening on Saturday night. We went for the 50% off food deal. They also had a drinks offer on until 19:30 which was good value, particularly for pretty fresh cocktails. The venue is american themed and it worked well. Food was fine (it's american), waitress was nice and friendly. Definitely somewhere to go if you are looking for good atmosphere and a fun, social night. We were greeted on the door and taken to our seats. We sat in the booth (I requested this when I booked through open table- to be honest there was 4 of us so I don't think they could have put us anywhere else). In-laws thoroughly enjoyed it (they are not from London). Good night, food was fine, drinks are good and friendly service. Worth a visit on 50% off.

    The Roadhouse is an American diner type establishment. We booked the 50% off food deal through opentable and it was great value and as we were eating early took advantage of the half price cocktails and beers offer which is on until 8pm. Do not expect a quiet dining experience as the Roadhouse is also a rock bar so the music is churning out, but if you do not mind a bit of noise as you eat this is the place for you.

    Granted we had a 50% off voucher through toptable, but the food was good quality in very decent portion sizes. The burgers were great and the two starters of Calamari and Quesadilla were very decent. The burgers were really good, the ribs looked excellent as well to be honest. The steak not so on the table across, but to be honest if I want steak I will go to a steak place. Happy hour was great value as well with cocktails at £5.50 and our bottle of Prosecco only £17. All in for starters, main courses, bottle of prosecco and 4 cocktails just over £60 with the Top Table offer. Great value. Service was excellent too it should be mentioned.

    Visited Roadhouse on Friday evening as we often do for drinks. Cocktails were very good as usual... On this occasion we had booked the 50% off food deal and sat down to dine at 6pm. Food over all was ok but service was incredibly slow we waited for an hour between our starters and main which resulted in us having to rush to get to a show we had booked. Would visit again as the deal makes it such good value but perhaps when we had more time and weren't already hungry!

    We had a great meal at Roadhouse. We had the opentable 50% off food deal and they've got a BOGOF offer on discounted cocktails until 7.30pm as well. Portion sizes were big, food was tasty. It is a full on American diner with loud music, over the top décor and slightly cramped tables. Would have much preferred it if we could have had a booth. All in all, it was fun, tasty and we came out stuffed to the gills. 8 cocktails, 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 salad and a healthy tip came to £52. Great value for central London

    Went on a sunday, live music was good however just slightly to loud making it difficult to hear any conversation or make orders. Service was ok, orders wrong, not all food available due to another large party and waited over an hour for it to arrive. Food was good portion size. Overall, ok, good for live music.

    I went there with my boyfriend for dinner, which we had 9 p.m. (quite late) and the restaurant was already transformed into a club. It wasn't what we'd expected but it wasn't bad as well. It's great for having a nice meal, cocktails and other drinks afterwards and then going for a dance. Late in the evening it's more like a club than a restaurant, but the music was very good and I would recommend it for clubbing!

    We went here after a matinee. It's a lively place, based, as the name suggests, on an American roadhouse. I had the ribs which were succulent and very tasty. It isn't haute cuisine, but it's not pretending to be. The waitress was friendly and attentive. With the 50% offer, and happy hour the bill was only £30 for two courses each, a couple of beers and two mojitos. Ignoring the alcohol, that's little more than McDonald's. Would I return? Probably not, but that's a reflection of my half century rather than anything bad about the place, food or service which were all good. At the time we went most the customers were 20-30 somethings having after work drinks and food, and I'm sure if I was a bit younger I would have been happy to join them.

    This place is fine for drinks and a night out but if you are a coeliac and have been informed via email that there are suitable options, really there isn't. Your options are a plain steak or salmon with a salad as we were informed that all sauces and sides contained gluten- including the mashed potato! Waitress was rude although I appreciate it wasn't her fault and all in all an epic fail, won't be returning.

    We went late on a Saturday afternoon. Actually not that hungry must have been annoying for the restaurant but so we had it booked we felt obliged to go when we did and not worry about food later.. The burger was really juicy flavoursome and cooked very well.. Poor presentation on plates if you paid full price compared to some burger places I've visited, but can complain at food. hubbies ok, but jar sauces not fresh..if you paid full price, it would be a rip off.. bit too noisy and nightclubby-for us. Would appeal to the younger set!! A mix up with food order and bill but they were sorted ASAP with no fuss and apologies..great customer service ..would we go again? Probably not but that's because it just wasn't our sort of place that's all..

Food great and there was a cm that was ok. The place staying open till 3am was a plus as it was my birthday and we had a great day. There was 3 of us using the 241 deal and the 50% off food we got 2course meal and 14 cocktails all together for £80. Great value!!!!

    Had an excellent meal at the Roadhouse early Saturday evening. Got there at six so took advantage of the happy hour. Menu was surprisingly good in choice. Could have ordered a number of things. The service from the waitresses was spot on and cheerful and the quality of the food excellent. And the Open Table offer made the bill pleasant reading. Will certainly go back again sometime.

    My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. We had been here before and enjoyed it but this time even though the food was great and the cocktails amazing I felt the staff were rushing us through. I understand it was a Saturday night and they are probably busy and want to get as many people through the door but our waitress seemed to hover next to our table and every time we finished something was in a rush to take it and move us on. Before we could even order a last drink or ask for the bill it was plonked on our table and asked if we would be paying by cash or card. My husband was in the toilet so I said I wasn't sure as he was paying and she rather rudely said she would be back in 5 mins. Safe to say no tip was given.

    The roadhouse has a great atmosphere, def a great place for a stag or hen night or birthday party. The staff were lovely. The food was okay. Limited vegetarian and dessert options. We pre booked online for the 50% off our food bill deal which when the bill arrived was what I would have been happy to pay. The food is def not worth the full menu cost. Drinks very reasonable price. A fishbowl worked out at £36 for 4. Overall nice enough place if you are under 40 but try and prebook if you can.
