Huge worries about this being a covid-secure location. Food was fine. Service was friendly. Unfortunately, this restaurant seems to have forgotten that we are living through a live and active pandemic where proximity is an issue, and no more that 6 people should be meeting on a table.

A group of six who arrived next to us were clearly too close to our table. We moved our table further away from them to give us the space we needed to feel safe, Then more people arrived at this table and were seated. Wait staff did nothing to stop this.

Also, it was very loud in the restaurant due to too many people and people were having to raise voices to speak. Great way to spread Covid.

Management seem to be prioritising profit over safety.

Avoid this restaurant

The staff was amazing: they offered to give us a table outside when the terrace opened, they were lovely and when they realised we were celebrating some good news, brought up a round of free bubbles on the house. A genuinely delightful experience, it was my first time out for brunch since lockdown and I left feeling reassured and very happy. Thanks again to the team!

I’ve eaten here a few times and always have a great time. The waiters are all really nice and friendly, the food is amazing and I’m yet to have a cocktail I don’t like.
If the tables outside are full, I recommend getting one of the booths, we had a catch up with another couple and really enjoyed the atmosphere.

The staff are extremely friendly, always smiling and professional. Food is good. It took a while to come out but that was expected as it was busy, so we didn’t mind. It was my friends birthday and they arranged a cake and sparkler which was unexpected.

Great ambience, great service, we chose the set menu with a glass of Prosecco, which was good value. The hostess was very kind and found us one of the booths. The crème brûlées were great and definitely the best part of the meal. Starters were good. My mains was the half chicken which was really dry. But overall, the experience and vibe makes up for it. Wish it wasn’t raining so we could sit outside!

First Negroni had overpowering Campari - sent it back and got a correctly balanced one
Fish & Chips over fried - fish batter dark brown - solid not crispy - fish inside disintegrated
Chips were scraps not French fries
Could not be bothered to sent it back
Poor food - unlikely to go again

I love coming to this place, this weekend was no exception. We had a great location, right by the windows that had all been pulled back for an ‘indoors/outdoors feel’ The food was great and the service was impeccable as always. All the waiters are always so friendly and chatty and nothing is ever too much for them. They really make the place special! We had Seb for the majority of our afternoon and he was a delight to be around. Thank you for a great afternoon as per usual!

We were a group of three for a birthday occasion and we have a very good experience at Old Compton Brasserie. The waitress was nice/helpful and efficient. We didn't have to wait long for the food which was tasteful, the portion was perfect and the dessert was fantastic - we all had the three course meal and a glass of prosseco for £20 - we definitely got value for money. BTW the restaurant is big and there is definitely social distancing between tables.
