Great night with friends. Really friendly team who were happy to help us on making the right choices. Sticky Toffee pudding was to die for!

I met a friend from L.A. here who is visiting the UK for the first time so I thought I'd take her out for a traditional Sunday lunch. Not a bad idea, I just took her to the wrong place.
I had a nice Bloody Mary at the bar while I was waiting, tasty but kind of small. Our waiter was nice but when the food came there were no Yorkshires in sight. Once they did arrive there was no gravy, I had to ask another waiter to get us some which turned out to be about an eggcup full of very salty and thin broth. Whatever, some people like it like that. The roast pork was alright but like everything else about this lunch, was just alright. Needless to say, if you're in Soho House you're going to be surrounded by the kind of people you can watch on Made in Chelsea, so that's nice.
I think to fair to the Soho House corp inc, the restaurant is too big for the food. By that I mean they're trying to please too many punters at once and in the process the food has become very generic and boring, nothing stands out.
When you're paying that much money for a Sunday lunch it should all stand out.

I always enjoy The Dean Street Town House. I am a long term customer eaten and entertained there many times, both business and social. Its always been a comfortable fun experience. Love the space, the bar, the soft lighting and the no music ambient sound.

Arrived and sat at a table with a long bench - every time someone walked past the bench jolted which was very off putting. We asked for water and the waiter didn't bring it so had to ask someone else - waited a long time for our drinks to come, and then after being given the Sunday roast menu, we were told they had run out of roasts when we went to order. There was some confusion as one waiter said they could do the roast chicken, but then another said that they had completely run out. The staff were quite flippant about it and not very apologetic. We had come specifically for the roast so were incredibly frustrated - especially as the service had been so poor leading up to that. We left and found a pub more local to us who were friendly, welcoming and had plenty of food - we regretted venturing in to Soho for a change.

We had booked the town house especially for the roast dinners our table was at 4.30 so still an hour and a half until they stopped. As we sat down we were curtly informed no pork or beef left only chicken, so we all opted for that. It was ok but not up to the standard that I expected.
The place doesn’t seem the same.

Dean Street Townhouse is definitely our favourite dining experience in London. Whether for breakfast, dinner or a lazy Sunday Roast the service and food is always spot on. We’re so happy it’s back!

So disappointed yesterday with our Sunday lunch experience. The setting is beautiful, comfortable & has lovely atmosphere. The beef was perfect but go here if you love Yorkshire puddings with your roast. They were overcooked, dry, hard & cold. The manager refused to give us a complimentary drink after offering us complimentary dessert which we couldn’t fit in. The reason being ‘because it is a business!’ Very strange for such an establishment.

Took my mum and her friend here for her birthday lunch and it was great. Not been for a while and it was a pleasant reminder. Huge thanks for the birthday platter. Most importantly we arrived at 2:30pm and had a really leisurely lunch, with courses not being rushed and we stayed til nearly 6pm. So many places are keen to have you out the door after an hour and a half at the moment. Will be back again much sooner this time.

Had a lovely Sunday Lunch with good service and nice relaxed atmosphere and not too crazy pricing given the location. Our 4 diners all opted for a Sunday Roast, the portions were generous with plenty of veg, cauliflower cheese (delicious) roast potatoes and a massive yorkshire pudding. My beef was medium rare as requested and was of excellent quality, we all had deserts and my sticky toffee pudding was divine. All diners had a great meal and will definitely visit again

A great evening - ambience, food and service all spot on. Loved it. Everything was delicious… the twice cooked smoked haddock soufflé was outstanding, the prawn and monkfish curry fresh and popped with flavour. All the waiting staff were friendly and very attentive although really busy. Thank you.

I always am left feeling that there should be more choices on the menu, and sometimes feel disappointed with the selection.

On my last visit, (28th Sept 2021) this was just the case. Two out of three in my party opted for the standard fallback choice of steak and chips, which although very a good steak indeed, the cost (£30 each) added a slight sting to the bill and raised eyebrows at the end of the meal.

Have been many times usually on Sunday, which is always YummY! But this time we came early on a Monday morning. It was quiet, and lovely ambiance. We loved it and the food was as always great! My daughter in law loved the vegetarian full english breakfast! Ten year old loved everything, I think she wants to move to London. Food is always perfect!

Good quality food, smart service, albeit having only one waiter on the outside tables caused some erratic timing (great winter, so it’s not his fault . Of course on the high side price-wise but you do get what you pay for

A great bar to enjoy pre-dinner drinks, a great menu and excellent service, everything you need and want. We preferred the original pre-COVID mini loaf of bread rather than the hard crusted current version but everything else was perfect, as usual!

An old fav. On this occasions the music was cranked up near the end of our meal with speaker directly over our table so we asked for it to be turned down but it could not go back to the level it had been when we sat down so we had to move to the bar.
