A word from Sticky Fingers
Born in 1989 to legendary Rolling Stones rocker, Bill Wyman. Sticky Fingers Café was aptly named in tune to the infamous album released by the band and was the concept of Bill Wyman’s idea of what kind of restaurant he enjoyed and London should have some it too.

This haven of good times, great food, and original Stones memorabilia continues to provide an enviable environment for eating, drinking, and having fun.

Bill Wyman’s Sticky Fingers remains one of London’s favored restaurants serving award winning burgers, great tender steaks, and the best ribs in London. The service is always friendly and welcoming testifying that Sticky Fingers is even stronger today than the trend it started many years ago.

    Disappointed.... Bill got all his memorabilia out of there one month ago..... Not worth it anymore without the stones atmosphere. Well ; gutted really.... It used to be so cool!

    Had a quick Sunday lunch with the family, good selection of starters and desserts was enough for us! Ambience a bit lacking from last time I was there - maybe because it was Sunday lunch vs Saturday evening.

    Decor was okay though not as 'American' as I thought it would be. Seating area too cramped. Downstairs loo dated and needs some TLC. Service was okay - friendly waiters. Service tip of 12.5% auto included. Buttermilk fried chicken was delicious & tender. Beef brisket was delicious & fell off the bone. Meal slightly pricey but it is high st ken! Might go again.

    Went here with my son and his girlfriend on his birthday. We arrived much earlier than our booking but were delighted when they took us early. Food was lovely. We were given a great table. Staff were good and attentive without being overbearing. Lovely touch when they came with a brownie with a candle in it.

    The food was ok, but nothing special compared to the price. The waiter was very nice and checked on us a LOT! - that was until he could not sell us anymore, after serving the desserts, there was no sign of him. Maybe you should equal out the visits at tables, so your costumers feels taken care of all the way. I had apple pie which was one og the most expensive and tasteless experinces. The ice cream was crystallised and when i told the waiter, he was sorry. But there was no compensation in any way. That is NOT good enough, especially for an american restaurant. Else the visit was fair enough

    I was disapointed to find that all the stuff regarding The Rolling Stones (posters, goldrecords etc) was gone. I have been to the restaurant several times before and loved the ambience it provided. This time I wanted to show my nephews the all the stuff, but sadly it was gone.

    Amazing food (we had burgers), great staff, and lovely cocktails (recommended by our waiter as it wasn't on the menu). The only thing we didn't like was how many people were squashed in on tables, with not much walking space between them. This became an issue when trying to visit the rest rooms. Also as there was so many people we couldn't hear the music which meant it lost a lot of character.

    Dined on 4/10/2014
    I had booked a table after reading good reviews online, especially regarding the place being child-friendly. The staff were really friendly, but the ambiance was terrible. The place had fast-food restaurant feel to it, that even the rather cool memorabilia couldn't compensate. Some of the food was prepared halfheartedly (limp jalapeno poppers and squidgy popcorn shrimp, children's chicken drumsticks and fries just thrown in an enamel bowl), but the ribs and Southern Fried chicken was good. I don't think I'd go back just for those though. I think it's worth to mention that the children's chicken drumsticks had spicy seasoning, so my 4 year old niece couldn't eat it. It was all a bit of a shame as I was expecting a lot more.

    I have been wanting to come here for many months and it did not disappoint. The vibe for a few pre dinner drinks is excellent, after sitting down we enjoyed an excellent meal and high quality service. The burgers are outstanding, and generously portioned particularly "The Pig" which is up there with the best I've had, topped off with a good selection of drinks and equally generous and delicious desserts. Highly recommended and this will likely become my usual burger joint. Great work everyone!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 27/9/2014
    My 4 friends & I, who are all big meat lovers, were really looking forward to a night at Sticky Fingers to celebrate one of their recent engagements. We dined on a Saturday night and the restaurant was really busy with a loud, good fun vibe. Our waiter started well by informing us that the cocktails were still in Happy Hour bringing the price from £7 to £4 each. However, his helpfulness disappeared after that and he became quite abrupt and almost miserable. When we paid at the end of our meal he didn't actually say anything the whole time he stood there processing our card payments. He didn't ask us whether we enjoyed our meal. He didn't even say thank you at the end or wish us a good night and all 5 of us noticed it and felt annoyed by it.

    We booked well in advance - 7pm Saturday night and the two of us were shoe horned into a table for 2 although there were other tables free. When we were given the bill we had been given someone else's added on to ours! We pointed this out and it was amended, but with no great apology for the error. Sorry to be so negative, but just telling it like it was!

    Despite reading some poor reviews we decided to give it a try. We found it to be better than expected, way better!!! The service was friendly and efficient and we were made to feel welcome and advised on what to have. The food was exactly as it should have been, the chicken succulent and the meat on the ribs falling off the bones, yum yum. All in all great value for our money and will definitely go back.

    We were a party of six on Saturday night. Waiter was quite odd, congratulating someone ordering a pint - 'that's a real mans drink' after another (male, me) ordered a cocktail! Food was ages in coming, but was delicious. Faded glory I'm afraid.

    I went for after work drinks/dinners with people at the office and it was ok. Nothing really special, I think my expectations were a bit too high when I read about the 'American style' menu and the new south American influence. Didn't really get any of that from the food, but the place is set up as an American dinner and the burgers were good

    All the reviews about this place were very misleading, this is below average and essentially a not that much better for money version of TGI Fridays, the chicken wings are good but their pulled pork burger tasted like it was microwaved. The atmosphere was non-existent and the service was adequate but nothing I will remember. I would not recommend this restaurant at all.

    Aptly named Sticky Fingers was yum! Tempting little munchy starters and gorgeous mains that are not for those concerned with their waistline. My pulled pork bun with a side of Mac n cheese was sticky, gooey and gorgeous.

    We came here after going to see a show we booked the table at 6.30 and moved it to 7.30 as we didnt want to be late we arrive at 6.40 to be told as they had other bookings come in they'd moved out booking but could fit us in. the food was average some of it over cooked. It was similar style to TGI Fridays but I would say TGI's is better. The staff were friendly but when i ordered a second drink after 10 mins it had not arrived I asked where it was to be told the bar was busy and it was coming. 15 mins later still not drink. In the end we had to ask for it to be taken off the bill as I never got it but they had put it through the till. It was ok - a bit fast foody not worth the £70 we paid for a shared starter 2 mains and 2 soft drinks.

    Organised a large group birthday booking here. Triple checked by email that they could provide for gluten-free guests (one of whom was the birthday girl). Service on the day was chaos, with mixed messages from staff about gluten. We had 1 choice for starter and main, and had to argue the cost of the dessert (which they couldn't provide) off. They eventually I provided some side potatoes without gravy but charged us extra. It did feel like we were being somewhat penalised for having allergies. The main was also brought out with a gravy (some of which are of course gluten free but we were not told whether it was or not, and assumed it probably wasn't). Had I eaten it, I would have been seriously ill. Put a damper on my bday celebrations.

    We have been to this restaurant a few times in the past with young kids and in the past they provided colouring crayons and paper. They no longer do this so the appeal for taking kids is far less now. There were tiny flies buzzing around (and landing on!) our food all through dinner which we found really unpleasant. When we asked for the bill we were brought the dessert menu instead and then we could overhear the waitress talking about us. I would not return.
