We enjoyed eating here, our first post-lockdown meal, complete with staff wearing gloves and masks.

As usual a very nice evening, with excellent food. In fact due to the corona virus it was very quiet so was extra pleasant.

Bradleys is charming BUT it's overwhelmed with the Hampstead theatre-going crowd. Our food was delicious but tepid. It was a strain for the staff. I will go there again, but not in the early evening.

A relaxed lunch at a Michelin started restaurant just a short walk from the hotel.

Fixed price lunch menu which was good value. Starters and the dessert were excellent. The mains did not quite match but still good.

Setting really nice and staff pleasant, could have been a little more attentive (eg wine glass refills) and focused a little less on resetting tables for dinner.

Overall, enjoyable and very good. Better main courses would have nailed it!

Lovely cosy restaurant with great service and beautiful food. Really appreciated the little extras like the amuses bouches to start with and little tiny patter of desserts to finish. The bread is maybe the best thing about this place though, especially the walnut loaf. Great options for veggies and vegans too.

We realise it was Valentine's, and indeed the restaurant was full, but we were rushed, the bill appeared before we asked for it, and we thought the menu lacked imagination (apart from the red mullet) and was less appealing than on the many times we have come before. Had the management changed?

We had an excellent meal at Bradley's before going to the Hampstead Theatre which is just around the corner. The service, as always, was excellent, especially as the waiters knew we were going to the theatre. I had the soup to start which was smooth and delicious, followed by the haddock -- again very tasty. The lemon sorbet dessert was a perfect finish to a great meal.

We had dinner with friends on Sat., 1 Feb., pre-theatre. The food quality is excellent, well presented and the service is prompt and polite. We have eaten at Bradley's over the years and always find it a place to return to for an excellent meal. It is highly recommended.

I keep going back to this place because I think surely last time was just a hiccup. But the quality of the food does not match the high prices they charge. This time it was Saturday evening and the service was extremely slow indeed. Even just to get the bill, when all the other diners, bar one table, had long gone, took ages.

Great attempt at seasonal cooking and the dishes were well presented. There could have been more engagement from the team on why they were out of stock of wines and selling side dishes or letting diners know if they needed them? Food on the whole was tasty. Salad starter had no seasoning and there was no cruet set in the table to add your own. Should have been delicious but was bland. Beef was superb - like the best kind of Daube and desserts were good. Lemon sponge nice and light, not over sweet

Vegan options for the chefs samples, mini sweet bites and bread was limited for my vegan friend. 🙁 Possibly I should have mentioned with booking but with the good vegetarian/vegan menu options I just assumed.... Everything else was great and will be back!

Took a friend visiting from Spain. We were pleasantly surprised by the tasty meal. I was a bit disappointed as I had to change my choice of fish From Hake to Turbot.
The Crab and foie gras were good.
The soufflé would have been better in anything but prunes
Overall good place .

As usual, we had an absolutely delicious meal, very well served, at Bradley's before going to the Hampstead Theatre around the corner. I had a tasty mushroom soup with tarragon--smooth and really good. This was followed by hake with Jerusalem artichokes--such an amazing combination and every bite was savoured. My favourite sorbet finished off the meal to perfection. I highly recommend this wonderful local restaurant.

First and foremost the food was really good but the great work of the chefs is being let down by the waiting staff. There seems to be a complete lack of training. This was a Saturday night and the restaurant was not even half full but we were kept waiting for our drinks on arrival. The amuse bouche was placed on the table and the waiter made no eye contact and was already walking away while still describing them. They then started spraying and cleaning the surrounding tables and blowing out the candles while we were still eating. It wasn't even 10pm. and there were still other diners there. When questioned about why he was doing this he replied "because we are closed" and compounded it by saying that he had left ours alight!! This after having spent £150 for two people. The place lacks 'love' and is being run by indifferent staff who seem to want to get home asap. The owners seem to be absent but perhaps they should pay more attention and then they might not be half empty on a Saturday night. Needless to say we will not be returning.
