    A great place for a nice business lunch. Very classic, and cosy decor with comfortable armchair seating. Great service and reasonable prices. The Welsh Rarebit was the perfect accompiment to the chicken salad. They also have the nicest sausage rolls I've ever tasted as a starter.

    The food was so heavily salted it ruined the experience. No offer of removing items from the bill by the staff until asked. This is a very typical Soho House experience - sounds good in theory, is average in practice.

    We dined at Dean Street Townhouse the last time we were in London. This time, when we came back, we knew we had to have the Sunday Roast here again. And, just like we remembered, it was fantastic. I had the chicken and my two dining partners had the beef, which they said was cooked perfectly. It was a tremendous amount of food (even for Americans). We wanted 3 courses and our server warned us that we may want to stick with 2. He was right, of course. One of us got a 3rd course just so we could share a dessert, but we barely fit it. We had an excellent fresh pea and mint soup starter that was very light tasting and a bright green color (not the sad green of split pea soup). Main course was served with a ton of fresh veggies, cauliflower gratin, and Yorkshire pudding. Yummy sourdough bread was also served to start. Drinks were excellent and the bar even made me an unusual concoction that I requested. Server was very knowledgeable and helpful. Overall, it was everything we were looking for and we came away very pleased. We highly recommend it.

    Lovely atmosphere and efficient staff. I felt let down by the food however, I had the cod which was very bland with few accompanying peas and two bits of asparagus. For the price charged I did not feel it was good value for money. The food also sat in a lot of liquid, I’m not entirely sure why, perhaps it came from the poached fish? Sadly, this dish was very disappointing.

    I’ve had afternoon tea at the Townhouse before pre-lockdown and had a wonderful experience then. Everything felt so much more opulent and thought through, and we had felt very spoiled. Our recent experience felt very different. The food this time around felt very limited. The choice of sandwiches wasn’t great - cucumber, salmon and egg but they tasted good. There were three choices of sweet desserts. All were too sweet or a bit dry (batternberg). Service was ok but lacking in attention to detail. Our server was lovely but he spilt tea on the table, mopped up some of it, replaced the glass of water that he’d also spilt tea into but didn’t take the soiled glass away. We waited quite a while for tea strainers after our tea had arrived and on a change of shift our server didn’t let us know that he was handing over to someone else. At £36 pp for champagne afternoon tea, I think the level of service wasn’t great. We were seated in the mid-area on really low chairs (really uncomfortable if you are tall -which much of my party were- and squeezed in very close to another group which lacked intimacy. And finally the tea. The choice of teas was really limited - English breakfast, earl grey, Darjeeling, jasmine, peppermint and a couple of other herbal teas that you can pick up in your local supermarket. Nothing exciting or different or exotic or adventurous. We were however offered tea refills at no extra charge and more cream and jam for the scones which were lovely. I was underwhelmed and a bit disappointed. Would I go again? Sadly no.

    My overall experience was great: the food is delicious, the ambience is cosy and welcoming, the service is friendly and reliable. It would have been a perfect night if the music level had been lower, as there is no need to have such loud music and also a kind of energetic/rock music rather than a more soft relaxing kind.

    This was our first visit ahead of a theatre show, so we had an early reservation of 5.30pm. The building and interior decor was classy, stylish and comfortable, although neighbouring tables were a little close in our area (a little surprising given the current circumstance) which led to diners who arrived at a nearby table having an accident trying to access their seats, causing several glasses to fall from the table and smash on to the floor. The waiting staff were attentive taking our drink and food order without delay. We opted for starter, main and pud. The food was delivered to the table quickly and was presented well. I had scallops and the monkfish/prawn curry, and my partner, mushrooms on toast and the cheeseburger, we both opted for the rhubarb trifle. On the whole the food was good, however he was a little disappointed by the burger and felt it was perhaps overpriced for what it was, the same for the scallop starter. The curry tasted good but needed either more rice or a naan to accompany it, as it was sauce heavy. The trifle was nice, though the rhubarb was too subtle and being honest we would not have been able to identify the flavour had it been a blind tasting - nevertheless we enjoyed it. The things that perhaps let down the overall experience was a comment made by a member of the waiting staff towards the end of our meal about the speed of our visit, he seemed to suggest we were eating too fast. We'd been advised our table was reserved for 2 hours, and ended up leaving after one and a half hour to ensure our arrival at the theatre in time for the performance. It felt there might have been something a little judgemental in the comment though it is possible his intention might have been misinterpreted or lost in translation. But this was shortly followed by another team member removing items from the table before we'd finished, which then felt like we were being rushed!?! All other interactions with staff were polite and friendly. Overall 7/10

    A pre-theatre meal. Worked perfectly, timings-wise we booked for 5.30 which left plenty of time to nip round the corner to the theatre in Shaftesbury avenue.
