Nice variety of food that is well presented and consistently delicious. It is almost always crowded, and can be relatively noisy, but it doesn't inhibit conversation. I've always seen a wide mix of people dining - from business lunches to families.

Really good food, only thing lacking was that service seemed to be quite distracted at a time that wasn’t particularly busy which was frustrating as we didn’t get to have any of the bottomless potatoes or Yorkshire puddings as we were time limited and couldn’t catch anyone’s attention. Other than that, great portion sizes (for London prices of course but we’ve paid the same for a lot less previously so can’t complain). Desserts weren’t great for someone with a nut allergy but again can’t really fault them for not being able to accommodate that. All in all would definitely go again!

I am not quite sure about it, I was not impressed by the food. My wife and I each had a Mushroom Wellington on Sunday, it has arrived much sooner than we expected, which, at first, was good news. Both dishes had a rather unappealing appearance as it has been kept in the warmer for some time. The dishes looked dry, hence I have asked for extra gravy — that was a very sour brown liquid that did not resemble the expected and has ruined my palate and completely overpowered the dish.
Sorry guys, I must say your Mushroom Wellington is really overpriced for what it is.

My party of 4 had the Sunday Roast
I must say that the entire experience was SUPERB !! from the portions of food, to the lady who kindly extended my reservation from 2.30pm to 3.00pm , to the lady and gentleman who served us. (if only other places were as great as you guy's). and above all - not even pressured to leave .
The roast was amazing - I had half a chicken , and asked for a few changes to be made as I love parsnips and carrots which they kindly exchanged instead of chicory and another that originally came with the dish.
I will be making another booking and will be recommending this place to the entire people that I know...lolllll

AMAZING,SUPERB,EXCELLENT ...

Really slow service - asked them to come back in 5 minutes... over 15 minutes later they eventually came to take the order - overall service throughout was very slow - food was not that great and was cold!! Had heard amazing things about the place but soggy roast potatoes & overcooked/burnt Yorkshire puddings - why would you want unlimited when they aren't great!!
As a result I asked for the service charge to be removed and the server kicked up a fuss and demanded to know why I wouldn't pay the service... he proceeded to get 3 different colleagues to tell them about it before eventually getting the manager to take the service off - really disappointing visit after hearing such great things!!

The food was good value for money, however, the service was lacklustre. The lunch is billed as being 'bottomless roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings' but it seemed as though this was a surprise to the serving staff. The restaurant was relatively quiet for 2 pm on a Sunday afternoon, to the point that there seemed to be more staff than diners. It felt as though we had asked every server on shift to provide us with the illusive 'bottomless Yorkies and roasties', between the 4 of us we were given a plate with 4 additional potatoes on and another plate with one additional Yorkie!
After much back and forth, we were eventually served enough roasts and Yorkies to satisfy us! (It's fair to say that it is a much easier fete to complete a bottomles brunch than a bottomles roast).
The lamb itself was delicious and the gravy was flavoursome and in plentiful supply.
For the £20 price tag, it was a tasty roast, however, I wouldn't visit if you were hoping for efficiency!

As I fan of The Hoxton, I was keen to try Hubbard and Bell but I have to say I was very disappointed. We were placed in the main reception area and not in the dining room and basically, due to this, the service was poor. I was left there 25 minutes before anyone offered me a drink and the service following wasnt much better. Food was ok but not great and when we asked for the dessert menu (which is separate) they brought us the main menu again when we had already eaten. Will not be rushing back.

Restaurant is lovely, food was delicious. Service was really good until dessert. We’d dined at 12pm and by 1pm they were at their busiest so left us with the dessert menus for quite a while. When we asked about ice cream & sorbet flavours the staff didn’t know them. When it arrived they didn’t know which was ice cream & which was sorbet (same flavour). When they checked with the chef he’d run out of ice cream so exchanged one for sorbet but they didn’t tell us and it was important as one of our party was vegan. Overall though a good experience & our team left happy.

The place itself is nice but the food was just ok. The free-range chicken burger I had needs a slot more seasoning in my opinion. It was quite bland. My friend had the dish of the day which was seafood pasta, again it was just ok. Needed more season. Saying all of this, it wasn't expensive, it was friendly and the service was good.

Hubbard & Bell was quite busy when I met a friend for a Wednesday morning breakfast. Nonetheless, we were seated quickly and the service was very swift, if a little abrupt. The speed with which the food arrived would suggest that much of it is pre-prepared and ready-to-go, thus affecting consistency: the poached eggs with my Eggs Benedict were perfectly runny but my friend's poach eggs with avocado on toast were pretty solid. The trickiest part was identifying the staff because they seemed to dress much the same as the customers. Overall, breakfast was enjoyable enough, even if not the best value for what you get. It would not stop me returning if I was in that part of town, though.

A little bit of a boring food menu/options (fish & chips, burger, chicken burger) ‘pimped’ up to make them seem special/different.

Service was amazing and the atmosphere was relaxed but a little too noisy if you wanted to talk.

In fact, we didn't eat here after all. I made a reservation, by phone, for father's day. We REALLY wanted a traditional Sunday roast. I phoned and asked if they did serve sunday roasts and I was told YES, so I booked a table for 3.

Upon arrival, we were allocated to a table NOT in the restaurant, but in the bar area. Not only is this surrounded by people drinking pints, noisy and not eating, but also the seats are low recliners - not ideal for a lunch with a 74-year-old man. Eventually, we were shown to another table. I asked for the Sunday roast - "Oh we don't do that, we stopped that a while back". Not at all happy, and in fact not entirely happy with the response of the restaurant. Given that we'd gone out of our way to phone, to enquire and to be there - they were quite unconcerned. Won't be going back....EVER
