We were greeted at the door and seated promptly to a fully laid table away from the door which we appreciated.
The waitress was very attentive to the smallest of details which for someone working in the hospitality industry is a big plus;
The food was rightly seasoned, hot and just what we wanted.. would definitely recommend the Smoked Haddock Souflé which I was particularly impressed by. Dover sole, while excellently filleted by our waitress, came with a butter sauce which I found slightly heavy and the Brussels sprouts were perfectly cooked as well!
Will definitely be back soon!

Food and service great and great value for money however far too many people allowed At the bar which made it impossible to have a conversation with the person opposite you without shouting, which really spoilt the evening.

The staff could not have been nicer. They werevery helpful about sorting out a really good table where there was not too much noise as I had asked for that. They also did a very nice birthday surprise for pur friend. But the food was not as good as it should have been. Not bad, just nothing special.

Been here a few times now and never been disappointed. Buzzy atmosphere, nice low lighting, tables spaced well enough, and extremely efficient, friendly service without being overbearing.
As mains we had mince & potatoes, and a fabulous, rich lamb pie - both great examples of classic British comfort food. There was a minor delay bringing them out, but the waiter offered us a couple of free glasses of wine as compensation. The bill - for a lovely warm bread boule, two starters, G&Ts, two mains, plenty of wine, fresh mint teas, and service, was £130 for two which I reckon was excellent value. Early evenings there is a pre-theatre set menu for 20-something pounds, which i have had & and is also excellent

Dean Street Townhouse is a favorite of ours but this time despite having booked a table in advance we were kept waiting for 25 minutes. Service was then slow with drinks not arriving until the starters were set down. They seemed a bit overwhelmed.

Cosy place for afternoon tea and great you can choose cakes rather than having to have a full afternoon tea. One waiter was fantastic and made us feel very well looked after. The other waiters were quite slow to help. But overall I still love the ambience here and will be back.

Love this place for their Afternoon Tea. It's stylish, cosy and friendly staff that looks well after you. Food was delicious and reasonably priced so I happily go back again and again. Also great for impressing your visitors and in the heart of London, so easy to go after the museum or shopping.

We’ve eaten here a quite few times before and have always enjoyed it. This time we were disappointed. I ordered the mince and potatoes as I have done before, but it was so overseasoned that it was inedible. My husband had the burger. Again, usually lovely, this time it was way too salty. Our seats were practically on the floor making the dining experience uncomfortable and despite the heat and our request not to, the staff kept stoking the fire. Would I come back? Based on this experience, probably not. A shame because up until now it has been a favourite.

It took a long while for the food to come out (which matters on a week day lunch) and they made 2 mistakes with the order. I expect more precision from a restaurant of this calibre

It was nice and the food was ok. It is so dark towards the back of the restaurant that it didn’t create the nicest of atmospheres. We had the roast chicken and to be quite frank I could have cooked it better at home myself. Lot of money for home cooked food.
