Why can't other cocktail bars be like this? Everything is so efficient. No look of confusion when our small group tries to pay for our cocktails separately! It's so easy! Compare this with the incompetence in 'upmarket' bars eg. The Connaught where they they charge £7 more per cocktail and always muck up the bill. Long live Bar Termini :)

Doorman was friendly
Bar staff are professional
Quite expensive, but great cocktails
Didn't eat, so ignore my food rating
Busy atmosphere
Very loud in there...which is fine, but not great on a first date...as sometimes difficult to hear what is being said. People ate literally shouting at each other on a Fri and Sat night.

Cocktails are decent enough, but doesn't come close to living up to the hype or the pricing.

Excellent cocktails in a lovely small bar with very attentive and knowledgeable staff. One of my favourite places in London for cocktails.

We didn't eat any food, so the rating I had to give for food is based on what the platters other customers consumed looked like (cold cuts and bread from the look of it) rather than from my own experience. To confirm, I went to Termini for drinks not food so there was no reason why we didn't order any food.

Extremely overpriced, tiny little "bar" with smelly toilets. My living room is bigger than this place!
You should be ashamed of your prices, a 30ml (!? I'm only guessing, I do understand negroni is small though, but come on!) £8? Bill came down to £61 just for few drinks.
Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else....

Received a call three hours before the booking to be told I only had the table for 1 hour despite having booked almost a week in advance. 1 hour? This should have been made clear at the time of booking not late on a Thursday when everywhere else is booked. Disappointing service from an otherwise nice place that I won't be returning to.

Had to wait outside for our table despite arriving within the window of our reservation time. Another couple arriving after us in the same position were shown straight to the bar to wait. Not great customer experience

Promised to seat us. After an hour inside drinking while standing by the door we realised the servers were making things up and were never going to seat us.
Horrible.

Back again and it was a lovely way to start the evening. Great atmosphere and service. It was busy but did not feel over crowded. The cocktails were excellent if not a little pricey but I would recommend coming here. My time of place.

Awesome cocktail bar. We went for a couple of drinks for my wife's birthday. The drinks were great but a bit on the small side and £10+ each. Awesome Ameretto Sour!

It's a testament to Bar Termini, that even though the bartender accidentally spilled a whiskey sour all over me, I still really enjoyed my time here. Great ambience and drinks. It's a very small bar and is ideal pre or post dinner for an hour or so.

We went there on Sunday at6.
As we had booking , the table was ready. Otherwise we could not have enjoyed having drinks. Must have a reservation. Staffs there were very friendly and nice. The price was bit high. But acceptable. We like to go back again!

I had high expectations for Bat Termini, which is a place that has garnered plaudits from the likes of Time Out. The evening was a disappointment, however.

We arrived bang on time only to have to wait outside the front door in the rain for 10 minutes because our table was not free. No one thought to invite us to step in out of the cold and there was no real apology. After 10
minutes we were let inside only to be made to stand behind the front door for another 5 minutes.

We were then seated and orders taken. The drinks were very good. Strong (as cocktails should be) and subtle. I opted for a drink featuring clay and it was very very good. My partner has a Bellini which tasted great but was served in a small beaker, which detracted from the overall experience of the drink, which you would expect in a flute of something else more elegant.

The prices weren’t cheap but weren’t extortionate.

The experience was marred by two members of stay telling us to drink up and vacate our table when we had only been there less than 45 minutes. Given that we had been made to wait for 20 minutes for our table without apology or being served, it seemed a little cheeky to be rushing us out without letting us have a full hour at the bar. When we complained a waitress did apologise and offered us some complementary Limoncello, which we had to drink stood up next to the door.

All in all, an underwhelming experience. Great drinks spiked by poor service.

This place is atmospheric and cosy, and feels like a stylish Parisian speakeasy. But you pay for it and the tiny scale means there isn't much space between tables or people. We only tried the olives and snacks which were nice but again, pricey, but the food looked to be bread based - basically posh open sandwiches. This place is an ideal meet up for one drink or a good starting pre dinner drink on a special occasion.

Wonderful as always! The service is impeccable, friendly and professional, and the cocktails are some of London's best. Try the off menu espresso martini, it's a delight.
Tiny bar and I love that they only let in people they have space to seat.

Absolutely amazing cocktails with very friendly and attentive staff who liked to chat and joke with us. They were very knowledgeable as well as this was my friends first cocktail bar experience, small place but adds to the attraction and ambiance. We didn't eat but the menu looked amazing and we definitely will be back to try the coffee

A real find!
Can’t be faulted (if you accept that you get what you pay for!)
Didn’t eat BTW so can’t comment on the food, but I’ll surely try it next time!
