A hidden gem. Love the introduction and its worth having a “case” ready when you arrive for the detectives. Makes it a little more fun - but don’t worry if you don’t. Great drinks and worth trying some of the specials.

Good night, cool little bar. Nice vibe. Service from The waitresses was brilliant. She said she was new but was really good.
Got slightly loud where I couldn’t hear the person sitting in front of me and only negative that they only had one glass of a particular wine. Really enjoyed the Chapman cocktail.

Cool and well executed theme! Mostly nice and helpful waiters but the value for money, even on London standards, was sadly a bit disappointing.

Visiting from USA, heard about this place. What a great little speakeasy. Entry was fun (have a mystery to solve) and the room and atmosphere were just perfect.

Drinks were strong and definitely fit the motif. Food was basic, but pretty good. Hot dog was tasty, as was the Mac n Cheese.

We were s family, but it is clearly a great place for friends to gather.

Went with a few friends for drinks and a nosh a few days ago. We had our story straight and had a fun few minutes with the detective before gaining entrance to the lounge. The drinks were decent but nothing extraordinary. The food was similar. Service wasn’t great. We had a waitress who was clearly bored to tears and not particularly interested in actually serving people. We left after about an hour. All in all a nice time but not a place I’d go out of the way to go back to.

Bottle of wine still missing.
Concept sounded nice, but is just a gimmick.
Cocktails aren’t that great.
One of our group of friends fell asleep.
Very noisy place

Cocktails were good although I wish I had picked a bit better. The food was also really good.
The music was a bit loud though and I wish the setting was a bit more romantic... but the experience was great.

Evans and Peel was one of my highlights of visiting London. Speakeasies are easy to come by nowadays, but one that really gives you a sense of immersion and goes that extra mile to make it an experience is rare. Everything from the staff and ambience to the drinks and food were fantastic!

First of, the venue no longer serves sit down meals which they did when I came a few years back. Their food is primarily bar food to accompany the drinks although that being said their wings and ribs were fantastic. The ambiance was great and the sound levels allowed talking to occur.

I had a really great night here. It was my first time visiting so I wasn't entirely sure how the detective part worked but the guy who spoke to us about our case was pretty friendly and didn't grill us too hard about the details of our fake story! The cocktails were delicious and the food was really good - they're all finger foods though so don't expect to come here for dinner. The prices were reasonable but the service was hit & miss. One guy was really helpful with drinks recommendations but another was clearly uninterested and in a rush to get away from our table and collect other orders. The ambiance was pretty nice - the speakeasy vibe was good and the tables weren't too crowded - I did get a bit confused when the background music switched between jazzy/band stuff and more modern music but it wasn't so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. Overall I would visit again and definitely recommend this bar - at least for a single visit.

I was expecting more from this bar. As a secret bar it was great but I was expecting from reviews to be more interactive so when we had our drinks we would have an activity to do.

The place is nice and being met by the detective at the beginning is cool but other than that it was a normal bar

From the moment we arrived outside this was Avery different experience. The detective considering our case was fantastic, he’d read the note we’d sent and discussed it in detail with us. It was our last speakeasy of the night (we’d visited 4 in total) and by far the most fun entrance. Inside was fantastically themed, ok the detective role play stopped but hey I wanted a cocktail not a drama class! The cocktail menu is fab, the drinks amazing! Staff great and although we only ate olives the food I could smell as taken past me smelt good! Definitely one to return to and bring friends too.

Had to wait outside for half an hour without any apology or clue what was going on. Then “the detective” was so rude to a woman after us which made us feel very uncomfortable as he called her names. The whole thing was awkward and rushed. Could be so much better!

Responded on 12 February 2019

Evening We can see you had some problems with your last visit. We apologise for the waiting , apparently the office was full of cases for our detective , we have noted and we will improve our service. We hire professionals actors , perhaps the gentleman was too much in the role. The management team will have a meeting with the detective . We are deeply sorry and we apologise for the experience. Please contact us for anything you might need in the future .
