We were unable to get our wine chilled in a proper ice bucket, the menu is limited and does not change, and our expensive Dover sole arrived lukewarm.

Me and my wife enjoyed a romantic evening at No. Fifty Cheyne. We were able to get a table next to the fireplace, which was a pleasant surprised. My wife raved about her Salmon Tartare and Cod in white wine sauce, while my Fillet was cooked to perfection. Service was fantastic across the board, but our waiter was 5 stars. When I told him that I had a mushroom allergy, he made sure to check with the kitchen that none of my food contained mushrooms. As it turned out, one of the sauces did, so I was able to change part of my order, and saved my from a night of discomfort.

Reservation was accidentally cancelled. We booked 50 Cheyne because we had a wonderful experience last year, and wanted to have a quiet fireside drink and supper. We arrived early to have a drink and turned up to 15 blokes having a birthday party. fireside sofas blocked with dudes drinking lager. Seated in a breezeway between the dining room and table of 15 blokes. starter 45 min late and no nuts or olives even though we asked for something. My wife can't eat gluten. Massive potential but sadly no up to it.

It was excellent, food was incredibly delicious. The service was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is not too noisy which is great. I will definitely be going back. The rice pudding is out of this world and the fish and the risotto was so good.

Lovely restaurant, great location and ambience. I wanted to visit as my family ran this establishment back in the 50’s as a pub. Then called the Kings Head Nd Eight Bells. Was seriously impressed, we’ll be back.

Probably unfair to comment. Was a very quiet lunch, on a Tuesday in early January. More staff than customers, not easy to create an atmosphere.

DO NOT COME ON A SUNDAY!!!
We went for a nice family dinner at the end of a weekend.
It was half closed and very understaffed.
We have come to this restaurant in different occasions before and after the renovations.
Tonight was the biggest disappointment. Understaffed, bread stale, waited over an hour for mains, only one waiter for the 6 tables.
Other tables sent back their mains for being cold, people complained for long wait for desserts, etc.
another issue we encountered was that a fellow client came with his big dog and was let roam around the restaurant licking my hand and clothes!!!
TOTALLY unacceptable!!!
Even the only waiter owned to the fact that there was not enough staff and was not acceptable. He offered to quit!
Better close on Sunday than offering this sad experience to repeat customers.
Never again!

While the setting is very pleasant, both upstairs and down, the spaces were far too hot for comfort. The food was disappointing and did not live up to its promise, with too much salt in all courses. As a consequence the cost of the experience felt outrageously high. So, no real encouragement to return.

The incredible food, warm friendly service and beautiful environment managed to redeem for its very inefficient service, we walked in and were ignored so made our ways ourselves upstairs. We were stopped halfway up stating our table was ready. Then our waiter disappeared and where were again left standing aimlessly at the door. Was sat at a table near the door which made for a very draft evening. Not one server was looking after our table but about 3 different waiting staff so was asked the same questions several times at servers different point of service. A simple ‘section’ per server would work far better. The food was incredible and when the multitude of serves where lovely, just made for haphazard overall experience.

Enjoyable evening. Overall very good. Food let down by cold plates - not good especially for fish. Music rather too loud. Service excellent and friendly, only let down by a mix up with coats.

I like the venue but on Sunday night the service was poor. We were not served for drinks at the lounge upstairs. My glass of wine arrived after I had finished my main course. Also coffee machine broken.

This used to be one of our very favourite restaurants in London. When we were experiencing the end of the heat wave last week we thought it would be a great night to go there and enjoy food and wine. This evening my hubby and I decided to take scallops for starters and rib eye steaks and prawns for main. We couldn’t make a better choice. Well done for chef !! Service excellent and new look amazing!! Highly recommend for dinner date♥️
