We came to see Mud Morgansfield play. The food was delicious. An English restaurant unusually being able to serve American food as if you really are in the states. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Because my husband is disabled and not able to stand for long periods I’d asked if it was possible to provide a seat for him to see the show. Otherwise he would have not been able to attend. This was organised for us with no fuss and we were made to feel most welcome. A terrific place to go to either just for a meal or a meal and to see a show.

Very attentive staff and luckily went on a day when there was a deal on cocktails. Besides the deal, great food, drinks and jazz music. Will visit again

Fantastic food and the staff really went out of their way to provide excellent service. The ambience was excellent as you would expect, but live music was only starting from 10:30pm so unfortunately we missed that. Regardless, would highly recommend to others and I will be back myself again!

Great restaurant! They were so accommodating and gave us a private room as there was a large group of us. The food was absolutely amazing, especially the brisket!

Great food but limited menu, spinach dip is amazing. Cocktails are tiny!! Bit pricey but we had a good time. We went upstairs afterwards for an event and was a bit disappointed with that but would definitely eat there again

SCAM / MISLEADING ADVERTISING.

Monday's 2 burgers for price of one? Not really. Flyers and signs in front of the venue say that - but only after you eat and get the bill - you'll be surprised that you are paying full price for both burgers. Why!? After speaking to staff, they've informed us that the offer is valid only for cheeseburgers!? But it doesn't say that on any of their advertising materials.

Not nice Blues Kitchen. Not nice.
I'll think twice about coming back.

Food and service were great, but we expected music from 9pm, although by 9:30pm, there was still no DJ and no music. Will definitely try again another night.

Good food and cool place to be but they seemed a bit overwhelmed and service was a bit slow which isn’t the best when you’re waiting on drinks that you have a deadline on! Servers were nice though and I don’t think it was anyone’s fault, I think they were just all having to run around a bit too much. All in all I would recommend and return.

Friendly and welcoming staff. They came quickly to take our orders andbthebfood came even quicker. The food was enjoyable, the drinks were somewhat expensive in my opinion but that would not but me off returning. Lovely place with a lovely staff. I want to try their bottomless brunch next.

I went to blues kitchen for the first time. I always wanted to go there to celebrate because the ambience looked so nice from the outside. The service exceeded my expectations. A truly personalised service, laugh a minute, friendly staff especially the one with the arm tatoos 😁 Awesome!

I love this place! Walking in you immediately feel more relaxed and chilled. The sounds of classic blues music playing and looking round people smiling. The food...wow...we order the share plate as you need to try everything, from burnt ends to ribs you won’t be disappointed..my friend and I was in awe of the flavours from every item on that plate. The service is fantastic too, the servers know the menu by heart and give honest options to questions asked. Also a nice touch is the manager came to check all was ok at the end. Fantastic place, with food and staff to compliment it...

I love this place. The food is always good and the drinks great too, though I think the fish burger was a bit "meh" according to the person who had it. Staff are generally great, but there's a couple who are sweet but way too flaky. took a while to get served then our waiter went to ask a quick question and never came back....much the same happened last time.

Great service. Good live music. Food was decent. Bit on the fatty side burnt ends and ribs could have been meatier. But good flavour!! The new girl waitress on the yellow shirt was pure fire.

My experience was okay.
Nothing to write home about to be honest.
The food was middling. Had the burnt ends (not great) and the brisket (much better).
Nice mac n cheese.
The first drink I ordered had to be sent back. It was unpalatable. But then I had a Zombie cocktail, which has a real kick to it. Nice!
It wasn't overly loud and we were able to conversate.
3 or maybe 4 out of 5.
Great customer service though!

Brixton blues for brunch was an average experience. The corn bread was dry and the bluesy breakfast was about average. We weren’t floored by the food and the cost. Overall nice ambience but that’s about it.

Really enjoyed the venue and food. Slightly disappointed when they came out to tell us they had run out of glasses so we had to drink Prosecco out of water glasses before asking to have the glasses that had been left by the table next to us. However, would recommend and would revisit.

Lovely Sunday brunch/lunch at the Blues Kitchen. The bottomless option is a steal but there was only one barman on and so there were long waits between bloody marys. All the food was of good quality and big, American portions. The vibe was laid back and fun, and the noise level just right - buzzy but not overwhelming. The servers were all super friendly but service was a bit too laid back - with some big waits between courses.
