    Hereford road used to be our local, sadly we’ve moved to the other side of town. Having not been for a while we booked to go with friends for Saturday lunch. I honestly don’t know how they maintain such high standards for the food, wine and service. They never seem to falter and it really is still one of our top favourite restaurants to go to. A lot of our friends go there too and just adore it.

    Not my first time. Deserve their Bib gourmand. In particular cooking and jus of meats are delicious. Calm atmosphere this Saturday evening was much appreciated. One flaw though : waiters could be more friendly. Great value for money

    It is amazing that this place isn’t impossible to get in to. The set lunch menu has to be best value in London. Food was incredibly tasty and best we have had in London for some time ( Lyles about three years ago). We first found Hereford Road when Tom Parker Bowles gave it a heads up as bring Keto friendly (by accident not design ? ) in a review maybe five years ago. It fell off our radar because now a bit of a trek for us to get there but we will be back soon . If we lived locally it would be regulars.

    Sorry to say the food was really bland, small portions, and when I complained my Yorkshire pudding was burnt he returned with a bowl full of oil with 2 soggy ones and some scraps at the bottom. Potatoes lacked any crisp. I think the roast has a lot of place for improvement especially for somewhere that prides itself on its meat.

    It was a nice place to eat. We liked the feel of the back of the restaurant with the open sky light. We had lunch on a Saturday which wasn't overly busy but enough people for a nice atmosphere. The waitress who served us was friendly and on the ball. The chefs when we came in were incredibly friendly and welcoming. There was one gentleman who was also serving who was efficient but we found him unfriendly and as if we were annoying him. The menu was small and we assumed that's because they change it regularly but we both enjoyed what we had. The wine list was also quite limited and we hadn't heard of any of them. They only have one rose on the list but it was delicious. We would go back again.

    Attractive neighbourhood restaurant serving uncomplicated, tasty food. Good simple British fare. Great value for this part of London. Late sitting so menu of the day was reduced to just a handful of dishes. Only issue was the service; whilst professional and efficient lacked any warmth. From arrival when there was no acknowledgment from cooking or serving staff, to taking orders not a single member of staff 'cracked a light'. No chat, no smiles. Didnt even get a goodbye when leaving. Maybe caught them on a bad night, Go for the food, maybe not the laughs.

    This was my second visit to Hereford, and once again I enjoyed it. The food constantly impresses with its freshness and flavour with attention to detail - a real compliment to the chef! The prices are reasonable, especially when compared to the exorbitant rates at many other restaurants nowadays. While the service was adequate, I must admit it lacked the friendliness and attentiveness one might hope for, nevertheless it gets the job done. I believe the balance between the food quality and fair pricing is crucial for any good restaurant, which is quite rare these days. I do hope Hereford maintains its current standards.

    I regularly come to Hereford Road and it does not disappoint. Chef Pemberton is one of the most underrated chefs. Come if you love great cooking. Simple solid cooking beats most Michelin starred restaurants. I had the braised duck leg with fennel. I must say duck is not my favorite dish but when I happened to see his tray of braised duck legs, I had to give it a try. It was truly an amazing dish, full of flavour. Succulent flesh falling off the bone, with this super crispy skin. The fennel balanced the dish tasty like braised onions. I could eat this everyday….and I’ll be back

    A good “Sunday Roast” but nothing special. Gravy was thin and a bit bland - crispy roast potatoes would have been good too. With simple dishes it all needs to be good. Nothing to complain about but wouldn’t rush back.

    I keep coming back to Hereford Road... it has a winning combination of a pared back approach to consistently excellent food, using superb ingredients and allowing them to sing without elaborate treatment. I also love that the kitchen is open to view. The set menu has to be one of the best value deals in London. Lovely ambience and great service. Just wonderful.

    Fantastic experience at Hereford Road. Food and service were outstanding. For starters the chicory was wonderful and the leek vinaigreet just worked. Mains great too. Just everything pretty creative and tasty. Very decent prices too. Interesting wine selection, we went for a carage of a delicious Italian wine. Friendly service. Recommended!
