We had Sunday lunch and enjoyed it very much. Tables nicely spaced (an issue inside and outside the Covid era) and staff attentive. The food quality was good/high and the quantities ample. Wine remains an issue, because it's getting too expensive everywhere. The carafe approach is helpful, but £30-£40 for modest wines is still a bit much. (This is not an issue just for this venue.)

Very disappointed by the meal which was a roast chicken dinner, the chicken had blood in it and definitely was not cooked properly, which I didn’t realise until I had eaten some which was not a pleasant experience to say the least! Yorkshire pudding was overdone and roast potatoes we’re overcooked! I had a upset stomach later on which was obviously due to the meal,which therefore made my stay at London not as enjoyable as I would of liked it to be!

I booked breakfast to celebrate my dad's birthday and it was the most wonderful experience.
He was made to feel so special by the lovely, friendly staff who looked after us throughout the morning and I cannot praise highly enough the quality of the food, the service and the whole experience from the moment we arrived. I even treated up to a celebratory glass of champagne which was served in the most gorgeous glasses.

Full English was good .
Annoyingly the knife couldn't cut through a sausage.
Cold toast but was replaced by warm fresh toast.
My wife had the Lorne sausage,potato scone and fried egg.
Sausage resembles a burger and scone to dense and heavy.great egg and good mushroom side.
Great pot of tea and freshly squeezed juices .
Good service

We normally rate the DS Townhouse five stars. The service wasn’t on par but few restaurants are with staffing issues due to COVID. The salad we had tasted as it normally does (greens, chicken, avocado, Keen cheddar cheese, bacon, etc) but it was deconstructed. We had to chop the greens ourselves along with other ingredients with nothing more than a butter knife. It may not have been so challenging had all of the ingredients been placed in such a painfully small bowl! As it was the lettuce and other parts frequently went flying out of the bowl. A salad that sophisticated should be prepped in the kitchen with proper utensils.

Our server was fantastic - very friendly and patient (when we chatted so much before ordering). He was very accommodating - checked some of the dishes for allergens, and it reassured us that we were in safe hands. Drinks were super, food was delicious. Also felt very covid safe with precautions in place

always a pleasure to eat at Townhouse as often as I can afford it. For lunch we had a blessedly brief but comprehensive menu. My lamb rump was delicious, tender, but tasty and a good helping. My French friend described the food as like a brasserie: good food well cooked but not fancy cuisine. This is, from her, a compliment. The staff are friendly, hospitable, accommodating but not intrusive. The first wine on their list was good. The bread was a hot, sweet, delicious little loaf. This is the third time i have eaten there. May the Lord spare me to eat there again.
