Staff were fantastic, very friendly and top service from all.

Pancakes were out of this world, how do you get your bacon that crispy ?

Overall my mum enjoyed her birthday and the kids had a wonderful time. I can't thank you enough for a great afternoon

When we arrive the waitress was rather rude as she was telling us about the rules regarding face masks

Was our first time in My Old Dutch although I'd known about it for years. All of our party enjoyed our food and the service. The place is very bright and clean inside, with plenty of space. I would definitely visit again.

Booked ‘my old Dutch’ as a breakfast brunch tradition for my little sister and I couldn’t have asked for a better time. The staff were friendly and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The menu had a great variety. The gluten free, vegan and dairy free menu also had a great variety. 10/10 and will be booking again!

Had a lovely indulgent brunch. It was quiet and the staff were very attentive and welcoming. Will most certainly be returning. Don’t eat a single thing before you go - you will want to try and finish the entire pan cake but it’s huge so we struggled. Delicious

Went on Monday when it's £5 per main and we also had alcohol. So paid £22 for 2 people which is incredible! The food was excellent as usual! It's my favourite pancake house since forever!

The manager at this branch is my favourite. Raffa is extremely welcoming and helpful. Every time I visit I enjoy myself. He makes such an effort with all of the customers and sorts any issues instantly. My friends and family all like him too.

Tasty pancakes and a nice place to eat in. The service was good but they didn't have any of the butterscotch pancakes! Which was a shame, otherwise very good!

We were taking advantage of the last day of the eat out help out a discount scheme so we booked a table for two at the Chelsea My Old Dutch for 11 ,45 am. When we got here the queue was long ,as we booked the table we got in smoothly.
After we received the menu we waited a fairly long time for somebody to take our order. Well, that was understandable cos the place was full.
The pancake was okay nothing special maybe the size.

I have nearly finished my food when I FIND a strait long BLACK HAIR under my pancake. As the place was full I quietly called he gentleman at the door and show to him. One of the waitresses got dark black hair Im light brunette.
He said I am really sorry and bought the bill.I didn't want to make show cos I know they are going through a difficult period.
But after that, I could not finish my pancakes.
We went out to support them , I myself working as a florist don't earn a lot of money so even on the eat out help out the was a bit pricey for me and for my friend.
And this experience ruined the rest of the day for us.
We went out to different places but all I could look for is black hair on my plate.

So no I would not recommend to my friend or I will never go back there.
Kind regards
Katie Madarasz

Even if I booked in advance, unfortunately they made us sit downstairs and obviously the atmosphere wasn’t as upstairs and as expected. The food was alright, the sweet pancakes better than the savoury. Sadly disappointed..

Exceptionally friendly and generous service. Food a mix of the classic and the creative, as ever. Quite noisy due to acoustics, and the attraction of Eat Out to Help Out, but not sufficiently bombastic to drown out conversation, so hardly a deal breaker!

Always good food there and good service. Because of the hot weather the front windows were open causing the noise from the busy road to affect the overall relaxed atmosphere.
Another point is their policy to put the "optional" service charge on the bill. Better customer service would be an option on the card machine to put an additional tip if the customer feels it's appropriate.
