    i sat down at my table at 19:05 ordered by 19:10 watched a couple walk in and sit around 19:15 maybe even later. i order a appetizer and a drink and was planning on ordering my entree after i get my appetizer. 30 minutes goes by and the same couple i watched sit down just received their food. my waiter comes back to my table and asks me if im ready to order i said im waiting for the appetizer first he said okay . some more time goes by and i asked my waiter hey do you know how long ? he said “ how long for what “ i said for my food he said hold on and went to go ask kitchen and came back saying it was going to be 10 more minutes and asked if thats alright i said sure by this time the couple that i watched sit down was done eating . my appetizer was nothing complicated, two scallops on the plate with a little veggies and crumbs on top . scallops werent even cooked pretty sure it was a safe to eat raw scallop situation which took me by complete surprise when it took over 50 minutes to come. the experience at this restaurant almost completely ruined my first day in london luckily when i left i saw a red telephone booth and that brightened up my mood . the guy host working that night was very friendly and welcoming. but as someone from nyc one of THE most busiest cities in the world it should never take 50 minutes for two raw scallops on a plate . such a disappointment and waste of time

    Great place for breakfast. Decent food, nice breakfast, but the atmosphere and service make up for anything else. It feels old school and charming. Our waiters were attentive and although we waited too long for the food at a busy time, they came back to us and kept us informed. We’d definitely visit again.

    FAB-U-LOUS! Firstly very attentive and friendly staff. Ola on reception was fantastic at looking after us and securing us a nice quiet table - Thank you, Ola. The bartender (blonde normally works as a waiter) nothing was too much bother for him either. The Maitre'd, a lovely Greek chap, Super friendly and attentive with a good sense of fun. The food was great and tasted wonderful. The attentiveness of the staff really made the dining experience first-class. Would definitely recommend and return. You may think this type of venue is expensive, but it is not, I had fish and chips for £20.00 - comparable to other London venues, but the ambiance and the staff make this a truly lovely experience Thank you all

    Lovely ambience and staff were kind and efficient. Was surprised that the £28 advertised for afternoon tea became £42 each with a house glass of wine and VAT. Food was nice enough, but it’s the building, ambience and service which stood out.

    We wasn't sure what to expect. Coats were taken when arrived and taken to our table. We loved the ambience of the place. The waiter was very helpful, chatty and attentive. We only ordered two courses. To start warm bread arrived. The dover sole was filleted by the waiter. The overall meal was delicious.

    We were asked if we had any allergies which we haven’t and I recommended something on the menu that I had the previous month, prawn curry monkfish with rice that is what it says on the menu but the rice came with peas so they had to be picked out annoyingly as there wasn’t rice without peas. If you do not like peas you wouldn’t choose them on the menu, the prawn and monkfish curry was ok but not great. Everything else fabulous.

    Everything was lovely but I would change the recipe for the roast potatoes. They felt air fried and were quite dry and tasteless. The rest of the dinner was perfect but these let it down especially when they are the favourite part of a roast

    Came for dinner for two after a show at Ronnie Scott’s. The restaurant is classy and well run with very good waiters. We had a couple of decent cocktails and a bottle of dry white to accompany some oysters followed by Dover sole grilled. We both found the food a bit uninspiring. The oysters were ok but not lip smacking how you expect them to be when you order the king of seafood. The Dover sole was poorly seasoned and rather dull. A shame as we both like the Townhouse and the venue deserves a better standard. But we enjoyed the evening and will return.

    We had an incredibly rude lady greet us as we came in. She was very dismissive and made us feel like she was better than us. This set the tone for the evening unfortunately. Gutted as I love coming here.

    I absolutely LOVE this restaurant. It reminds me of the fun we had there some years ago when I was a young producer at the BBC living the dream. It is still as buzzy and atmospheric as ever and I loved bringing my triplet children here to celebrate their 23 rd birthday. They felt the buzz similarly and we were brilliantly looked after by the staff members who were kind, smiley, warm and fun. The menu is just what I like - the boys adored the Beef Wellington special, I loved the oysters and steak tartare,... there's something for everyone and it was delicious to boot! We feel very lucky to be able to do something like this for a birthday celebration - it was a treat of the highest order which I highly recommend.

    Regular here. Food reliably good. Service good. Price reasonable. Am a fan but on this occasion we were allocated the back room with ridiculously low stools. As my friends and I are no longer in the first flush being seated so low was frankly unacceptable. The charming maitre’d had apparently tried to help when he saw our antiquity but failed. Just get rid of them - no-one whatever their age should be so uncomfortable. If it’s an issue for you - check before you book.
