A pleasant find off the main street. Excellent food and unobtrusive service.
The breakfast was great. The quality of the ingredients were excellent, and I felt it was really good value for money. The place was quiet, but was ideal for a nice relaxing morning. The general ambience of the place is nice, and would definitely like to return one evening. Overall, a great experience.
I always get enticed by beautiful food photos, and forget that UK burgers and steaks suck compared to US, So America, Australia etc.
The box car is no exception.
Wine selection is modest but the two reds we tried were quite good.
A wonderful choice for quality steak, innovative starters and great service. We splurged more than we were intending to, but it was worth it!
Amazing food and service. Surprised it was quiet tho. But I will be returning when I go to London next!
Was really good the first time around. Went back with work colleague and though still very reasonable value and products, the ribeye steaks we ordered were overly salty when served. Also they use to cook steak with rosemary but this does not seem to be the case any longer ....
Waitress was average, took ages for the food, got the order wrong and then charged extra for something i didnt order. 3rd time there and will question whether there is a 4th.
great burger, fries, greens, friendly service - pudding was okay, could use some more exciting options (but it is a butcher after all...)
cool decor & layout too, calm & airy feel.
Really excellent meat!
They had run out of the sides i wanted (broccoli and chicken scotch eggs). But the rib eye was awesome! Well seasoned. Did not need the peppercorn sauce.
I will come back.
Great evening; lovely food and friendly service. Would recommend and will come back!
Excellent food and service, perfect for a business dinner
Friendly staff and great food and beer. Wonderful find.
Sunday lunch menu was beautifully done. We have the beef and the lamb and both were beautifully cooked. My wife is 32 weeks pregnant and it was no bother at all when we asked if the beef could be well done. The potato and truffle gratin extra side dish was a little small but the veg that came with the Sunday lunches was beautiful. There were some nice draught ales available and the cocktail options looked great. This restaurant has a beautiful interior, great music and really relaxed vibe. Well worth a visit for Sunday lunch!
The restaurant was quite small and tables were very close together. We had a table next to us who were very loud so our dinner was disturbed. The menu was very limited and all quite heavy choices. Food was good, although our burgers were slightly over cooked. Service good and staff friendly. It would be good if they added a few more choices to the menu.
What a cosy quaint place to eat. I love the decor and the ambiance. We all had the sirloin steaks and they were all cooked to perfection, with fries and other veggies sides. All great. The menu is limited but personally I prefer that. The service was warm friendly and efficient.
I would definitely return to this place.
Love this place. A small, yet creative menu. As a working butcher shop, they can also whip up a delicious dish from a selection of cuts from their cooler. Quiet street steps away from Oxford Street and teh Mayfair area. Friendly staff. Great place for a perfectly cooked burger and a pint of beer.
eggs hollandaise was excellent
i went there for the sunday roast which is going to get a mixed review: everything with the roast (potatoes, carrots, yorkshire pudding) was great except for the roast beef. they were cooked medium well to well done. who eats beef that well cooked?? (no, i was never asked when i ordered how i like my beef cooked). nonetheless, it was edible - but what a waste of beef
Great burger. Went there specifically for that reason. As I always search for burgers places around the world.
Boxcar's reputation is very high and I'm delighted to say all three of us who enjoyed the Sunday Roast absolutely agree with the critical and popular enthusiasms. Superb produce beautifully cooked--outstanding roast beef accompanied by perfect vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. As a bonus: good robust red wine at an extremely reasonable price. Friendly and efficient staff...welcoming room...a true treat on Old Quebec Street.
Great food and service!
Excellent quality food and service in a friendly and nice environment. I look forward to going back again for the 5th time!
Great service, comfortable and good food. Come back often.
Absolutely amazing - we got a massive cote de boeuf and a fillet - the meat was excellent and the cooking (rare) was simply perfect. Try it!
Great meat well prepared, really nice sides very kind service... but long waiting time to be served
Friendly waiter but bit slow bringing bill/desserts even after we said we had trains to catch. Great steaks.
Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff and really good, simple food. The meat quality and flavour was excellent. But also the sides and deserts a cut above the norm. Very satisfying.
Probably the best burger I’ve ever had.
Steaks look amazing too. A real find.
Overall good. Steak smelt a little strange as if it was clocked with pork
We had a great time!
Quality of meat, good wines, great dècor and Patricia is a very pleasant, professional addition to the Team.
High quality steak with creative / tasty fries + a green bean salad that was absolutely a taste sensation. A bit pricey given the ambiance. Avoid the downstairs dining room or you’ll be facing the toilets (doors often left open). Wine priced high end also.
Sophisticated burger bar that does not leave you feeling stuffed and greasy. Nice. Lovely street atmosphere too.
Loved our visit to the Boxcar. Food was excellent and the sevice fabulously. We all loved our food including the vegetable tart which looked and tasted beautiful. Food is not cheap but it is London so not surprising. Only downside was the chicken was not available. Would definitely return to Boxcar.
Probably the best ribeye steak I've ever had. Relaxed vibe. Attentive non-obstrutive service. On my list of go to places.
Sunday lunch was okay, expected more.
Possibly the best steak I’ve ever had!
Amazing food and a Great Sunday Roast. Well worth a visit.
Utterly delicious!!!! I’ve been to this restaurant 3 times in the last few weeks and on each visit I experienced excellent service and ate incredible food.
One of the best steaks I've had in London. Loved this place!
I found this restaurant on a Saturday morning and intrigued being a butchery, we went for lunch and it was great. We ordered rib-eye and it was perfectly cooked and the side of confit potatoes was awesome.
Really nice spot in a quiet street of central London.
