Lovely cosy restaurant, great ambiance and great background music. Not a big menu but enough to choose from and all the food was lovely. Great cocktails, friendly attentive staff. Good value for money, would definitely recommend to anyone to pay a visit. Book a table as it gets very busy.

Very very noisy so difficult to carry out conversation - even with person sitting adjacent. Food average. Our server tried hard but was annoying. The person clearing the tables was invasive and it felt like we were being thrown out. Despite noting vegetarian and allergies at time of booking, no knowledge on the day. The decor is lovely.

This is a great place to eat pre theatre. My friend and I had the pre-theatre menu which was great quality, with super-helpful service. We had delicious fresh bread to start, then after our show we went back for dessert and glass of bubbly (also still part of the pre-theatre deal). The staff were so delightful and made it a special experience for us.

Great place with a lovely pre theatre menu at a very competitive price. The place was buzzing and cosy. The staff were attentive and helpful. The drinks were on the expensive side, but would definitely recommend!!

Lovely evening. Pre-theatre menu was lovely, options for everyone. Good portion sizes and great service. What a clever idea to enable diners to return for pudding post-theatre. Would definitely return.

The starters and main courses we ordered were all very good. I hadn’t ordered a drink, but my two friends were quite satisfied with their cocktails. The inner space is posh and delightful. Very nice staff!

A great Sunday roast and the jam roly poly was delicious. Nice atmosphere although tables are a little too close together. Service was a little on the slow side but it didn’t take away from the enjoyment

Yes for lunch and dinner. Not for breakfast. The breakfast was okay, but there's room for improvement.

Service was terrible, very rushed, waiter was not interested in Anything but getting our food order...after that couldn’t have cared less if we were having a nice experience. Finished a glass of wine, asked for another...empty glass left On table until I asked another waiter to take it away...I like this place but this service was the worst I’ve ever had in London.

Amazing ambiance, comfortable seating and incredible staff! We lingered for a couple of hours over our afternoon tea. I had the Darjeeling and it was delightful. The food didn't impress us, but we would definitely go back to try some of the lunch plates that we saw everyone else ordering.

Would definitely recommend.
I would have given a higher score as you could not fault the service or food, it was the level of noise.
If I returned I would request a table in a quiet area as we were seated next to the bar.

Visited with family for a pre theatre dinner.

Was a bad choice due to the noise and my father is hard of hearing (I had asked for a quiet table but that was not accommodated, perhaps because there are none). Food was good and service generally good (although they bizarrely brought my mother’s dessert out as her starter).

Great feeling to the venue, with varied menu and charming staff. Quality of the food was great, although the portion size of the eggs benedict and orange juice was a little on the small size. That being said, would go back.

Was very impressed with the service. One of our group has allergies and the utmost care was taken to understand. An off menu alternative was offered at no extra cost. Most importantly the diner was not made to feel their allergy was an inconvenience. The service and kitchen staff went beyond expectation to ensure all our party had a wonderful experience.

My favourite Soho Haunt equally suitable for meetings and a cup of tea, a mid week dinner or special occasion. Food is straightforward, not fussy but well prepared and presented, waiters are attentive without being needy and the atmosphere fun

The food was very average for the price we paid, the waitress abruptly came and said “are you done?” Made us feel uncomfortable and we said yes.
