If you’re in London and want to experience a proper afternoon tea (in lovely settings) don’t miss this place. And, for all you gluten intolerants out there - THIS is it! And as the cherry on the cake - the staff is super friendly and the prices more than reasonable!

Great dinner, lovely table off the main dining room so not too noisy. The table was a bit late and there was no room at the bar but that’s a tiny quibble. Have the smoked haddock soufflé.

My absolute favourite restaurant in soho! All staff are amazing and so attentive -remembering me (or making it feel like that at least 😂) even though it’s been a few months since the last visit. The vegetarian options are on the narrower side but don’t be put off by the descriptions as they don’t do them justice; even just something simple like the walnut salad was more flavourful than expected. Love it every time.

The breakfast here is great. Relaxed atmosphere and good service. I ordered a juice however and it come in a disposable plastic bottle. It was fresh squeezed on the premises so I don't know why they would serve it like that?! Given most are trying to reduce plastic in this industry, I thought that was a bit careless.

Lovely atmosphere to come and have a nice dinner with friends. It is always very excellent food, with a nice selection of vegan entrees for my very healthy young friends. We love to order something different each time we come, it's always an adventure. The decor and selection of seating lends itself to lingering right into dessert. I always enjoy going there.

I have been to 2 establishments in the last 8 weeks. Both have been a disappointment. A glass of beer was dropped over my friend whilst eating and the waiter didn't apologise until he heard us making fun of the situation.

It was all about the food and service where it went wrong.

Ordered a scotch egg as a starter and it was delivered on a bed of sauce which to me was inedible. I explained this to the waiter and he agreed to change it. He reappeared with the same scotch egg on a clean plate but the egg was still covered in the offending sauce. I also explained that this was not in the menu description which would have avoided the issue.

“But it will take 7 minutes to get a new one”. I agreed to this but wasn’t expecting my dining companions food to be left there.

Main course was acceptable but not more than that.

We enjoy Dean Street Townhouse. The food is usually good and the atmosphere great. This is not somewhere for a quiet romantic meal (in our opinion) though if you are celebrating or want a fun night out this is an ideal choice. Service is always professional if a little hectic and our only gripe is the wine mark ups. Steep! Our meal for two consisted of 2 courses an aperitif and a bottle of Cote du Rohne. Price £134 including service.

A very quaint, cute restaurant with an upmarket feel. Food was very good and pre theatre menu is excellent value for money. Service was good, just a little slow - we had two courses in an hour and a half. Nice ambience and buzzy atmosphere. Would recommend.

Great for what it is, which is a bustling, fun brasserie and bar with stylish but surprisingly traditional style decor. If it’s a quiet romantic meal you’re looking for, this isn’t the place.

The staff were fabulous, very friendly and attentive. Our soup starter and enormous Eton mess pudding were both delicious and my husband enjoyed his fish pie.

I was shocked and seriously disappointed by the lack of proper vegetarian mains though. Vegetarians don’t necessarily want to eat salad or a starter as a main. I want a proper meal! After querying the vegetarian options and asking for a recommendation on the server’s favourite ‘salad’ (as that’s all there was to choose from), I ended up with literally a plate of rocket, a few broad beans and a sprinkling of goats cheese. Not what I had in mind, not very exciting (nor filling) and very difficult to eat elegantly!

On that basis, I wouldn’t go again and wouldn’t recommend for fellow veggies (and def not vegans) unless you’re just looking for a very light carb free lunch.
