Brumus is absolute gem and my favourite go to place when in London. The location is perfect and it always feels like a plush little oasis in the rather busy and hectic West End. I met my friend for afternoon tea and it didn't disappoint. Great ambience as usual, soft music in the background and cosy lights. The service is always impeccable, attentive but never intrusive, and time just flew. The afternoon tea was spot on too. A great choice of teas, fresh sandwiches and scones and just the most delicious fresh cakes - and just the right amount. I really can't put my finger on it but this place has got the certain "Je ne sais quoi' factor - I highly recommend it (just leave a spare table for me). NB. I also highly recommend the Haymarket Hotel - the rooms are amazing - a little Boutique hotel with the special extra.

Just love all Firmdale Hotels. Atmosphere & decor keep us coming back. Staff are all wonderful.
Ate at Brumus Sat early evening. Menu was a little smaller than I remembered and I ended up with Rib Eye which was perfect.
My friend chose the chicken schnitzel which was a little dry/overcooked around the edges - but still tasty.

Brumus provided us with an oasis in the centre of London's theatreland. The service was excellent and the food was good although a little pricey.

We would definitely return again as it was so handy for the theatres but more important it made our evening more special as the whole experience at Brumus was very good.

Everything about our visit was lovely. The staff were friendly and attentive and the service was quick because they knew we were heading to the theatre after dinner. The atmosphere and decor was perfect too. The smoked salmon starter was delicious and a generous portion! In my opinion the sea bream main was too salty, but again a good portion and tasty. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

A lovely restaurant, although a little too dark for an early evening. Excellent food and service, perhaps a little too dark for an early evening meal. Just a little bit too expensive as well. Maybe a pre theatre option would be good. Very pleasant overall.

Great atmosphere and great service. This time though, the food was not exceptional. My friend had the a-la-cart menu and I had the set. His crab linguine was nothing great and no actual pieces of crab in the pasta. We were expecting something better from a £30 dish! My past experience in the restaurant has been great but not this time. I'll give it another go and if my expectations are not met...then I'll probably not consider going again.

Food was OK. However, expensive for what it was. £25 for a Caesar salad with chicken (hardly the most taxing of dishes to prepare!). Portions are not generous. The cheapest glass of wine (from a rather limited wine list) is £14.50.
Desserts typically £9, though “artisanal” (is that a typo or even more exotic than “artisan”!) cheese was £15. There is, apparently, a set menu (as I discovered, after my visit, on looking at their website), although we were not offered this.
It is certainly true that the cost of eating out in Central London has increased dramatically since pre-pandemic times and Brumus typifies this. The hospitalIty industry has been hammered mercilessly by the government (with, perhaps, more restrictions to follow?) and, so, small wonder that restaurants are seeking to recoup some of their, no doubt, massive losses. However, there is a danger that many of them may price themselves out of business.
Brumus is not a bad place to eat (the food is OK, the service generally acceptable and the roof doesn’t leak!). I may have been a little harsh in my star ratings, but these are based on value for money (or lack thereof!).
