Lovely evening with bestie. Our waiter, Igor was so professional and friendly. London House if you read these reviews please promote this guy as he truly he is management material with great people skills! Despite juggling a few tables he was attentive. Food was average - nothing special but wouldnt deter me from eating there again. I might be surprised lol!!

Had a very nice birthday dinner here with my girlfriend on the Satruday just gone. Started off with a scrumptious cocktail in the lounge area whilst they readied our table (a cosy corner booth) and then we got to indulge in the special carpaccio starter, T-bone steak with rocket salad,jersey royal potatos and a garlic herb butter sauce for her and lamb cutlets with roasted veg and pan jus (I think!) gravy for me followed up by sticky toffee pudding and lemongrass cheesecake for dessert. All superbly cooked, very flavoursome and textured beautifully though I did find the lemongrass a little bit too bitter for my tastes as a dessert.

And our server brought out a birthday brownie for my girlfriend complete with candle and singing! I can't remember if I made a special request with the booking but it was a very nice touch nontheless. Hats off to Davide for that amongst his other excellent service throughout the evening.

Do make sure you bring some cash with you as the servers work hard to make for a delightful visit and they won't get any of the service charge. I forgot to bring cash with me and I still feel guilty about not being able to reward Davide for his commendable work during our visit other than paying compliments.

Sadly, we didn’t have a very good experience here. My friend has been before and had a nice meal. Our waiter, at the beginning, wasn’t really listening to us and we felt he was just going through the motions - he asked us if we wanted bread, we said no, he still brought it (and put it on the bill), I politely mentioned that the cod I had was bland and he just didn’t really react. It was a Saturday night and it was quite quiet - I am not really surprised. My friend’s pasta was good - tasty (although not a lot of it), but my £27 cod was soooo bland and not filling - I had to buy a side order of fries. A shame. At the end the bread and our cocktails (which were 2-4-1) were all charged, so we challenged this and they were taken off the bill by the very apologetic head waiter. At this point, I didn’t mention the disappointing fish - maybe I should have done because I don’t think our initial waiter would have told him. Oh well - won’t be rushing back.

Great place for a nice dinner out with our adult children. The food was delicious, despite being just a little bit spendy. Service was a mixed bag as the main server was attentive to our questions and needs, but the cocktail server splashed a generous bit (maybe 20%?) of the $22 martini on the table, flatware, napkin and my daughter's sleeve without offering to even mop it up (let alone make another) Each course was beautifully presented. The dishes were tasty and unconventional. It's built out in a vintage building and well-integrated in a sweet neighborhood. Space was comfortably casual, putting all at ease, but not quite as posh as the prices would assume. I am sure it is a gem amongst the locals. There looks to be a lovely outdoor area to enjoying the warmer weather... we will definitely be back!

The right variety of fine meat cuts with both basic and more elaborated appetisers and wines, served with all the charme and cordiality inspired by an Italian managing team, in a warm and soft atmosphere resembling your own place in your best dreams! Good for events with family and friends, but also for more intimate occasions thanks to the several nice private areas, whether internal or with a view over the pretty Battersea square.

Hadn't been to London House for a while as previous experiences had not been great but this was very different. We had a super warm welcome, including the 2 dogs with us. The food was great. Perfect for a late Saturday lunch. No one rushed us, it was all very relaxed and informal. Will definitely put London House back on our list of good local restaurants.

What an awful experience. I would never go back. Went for lunch on Christmas Day with 6 of us. A complete farce throughout. It was chaos when we arrived, people standing around waiting for booked tables that were late. Our table was 30 minutes late with no explanation, only half of the drinks order was brought, bread was only offered after the main course arrived. We were given an amuse Bouche but no cutlery to eat it with. The brioche with the pate was stone cold. Many more faux pas occurred. The restaurant was full of dogs. It cost nearly £900 for the 6 of us. Completely RUINED our Christmas Day. No explanation was given for the appalling service and late table despite repeatedly raising the issues with the maitre d’. When I chased our drinks order the manager disappeared for 10 minutes and never gave any explanation for the missing drinks. Final insult was the manager offered not to charge for the coffees because of all the issues (on a ~£900 bill)
Gordon Ramsay should be ashamed to have his name associated with this disaster.

We were both disappointed in the menu for its limited menu choice. I have not eaten out for a while because of past poor restaurant choices and this restaurant falls in the same bracket. It was a Sunday, however, it's sad when you are compelled to order a Sunday roast because everthing else on the menu is not appealing. On returning home my son laughed that we went out and had a roast dinner when we could have had it at home, I cook a mean roast! My venison was chewy. The neighbouring tables had dogs, who were well behaved but my husband did not take to kindly to this especially when the waitress began to cuddle and stroke them (hygiene)! Starter and dessert (the latter a selection of 4 where they did not have any more sticky toffee pudding at a 6pm reservation) variety was poor so we only had a main and ventured off elsewhere for a dessert. Not impressed by this Ramsey restaurant. However, not all bad as service was very good.

Potential for greatness, however some elements aren't quite hitting the mark. Interior feels quite clinical, starters were absolutely amazing, main courses disappointing (mainly due to overpowering taste or dry pasta) but desserts won us over. Service overall was fantastic and was one of the main reasons we enjoyed our meal. Really hospitable and felt more like a host, as opposed to a waiter. Overall a bit of a mixed bag review and so would consider returning for a sunday lunch. If that ends up being good, we would give the restaurant another chance, however if not, we probably wouldn't return.

I booked a table for 6.00 pm and It was all good until around 8.30 when we were suddenly asked to leave because the table was required for another reservation. We were given no advance warning and the restaurant was only about half full. We were not planning to leave so early and it was a disappointing ending to an otherwise enjoyable evening. Maybe staff could be trained to treat customers with more tact?

Was looking forward to the bottomless brunch at London House but overall was very disappointed. While appreciating we had an early, 12.30 Sunday booking, the place was very quiet, almost dead, and despite there being numerous free tables, we were put on a tiny table inches away from a family group. Eventually ordered Bloody Mary's and a main from the brunch menu. Wild mushrooms and poached eggs on toast - very average, don't think the mushrooms were "wild" and the BM was bland with no kick or spice. My friends "full English" was mediocre to say the least. The service seemed laboured, slow, and people around us were complaining about missing items or dishes not being as described, and overall not a great experience sadly.

Great location and a place that is easily made by the fantastic service we received. The staff went out of their way to make it a memorbale experience. That said, you do feel that the quality of the food and pricing are not at the same level, and that you are paying for the Ramsey name, without the quality of product as a whole.

Perhaps one of the best value-for-money and most secret places of all of Gordon Ramsay's outstanding group. Most likely, those two things go together. Third visit which in itself says a lot but on top of that, great service, perfectly prepared and presented cuisine and true neighborhood feel. Takes a bit to get to via bus (no tube nearby) from Central London but well worth it.

We chose London house to celebrate our upcoming second wedding anniversary as we had our wedding reception here .

Very dissatisfied with the service especially the bar table service the server split drink over one guest
No coasters were used so the table was full of wet ring marks
The server recommended a cocktail to one of us and then it turned out it was made very poorly and the waiter then admitted to not having tasted it even though he recommended it !!!
The cocktails were half full and weak

The worst pornstar martini I have ever tasted

There was an uncomfortable air of Ponce amoung the bar table servers a snooty look here and there and very fake !

I was left with coffee and no milk for such a long time that the coffee was warm when it arrived

The food was ok
Ribeye wasn't the best .
All 3 steaks arrived with sauce and one without for some reason .

Very dissatisfied with this visit and perhaps Mr Ramsey's attitude is rubbing off on the staff !?

Would not return it recommend sadly
