    After seeing a great review on tik tok we decided to go there for the Sunday dinner sharing platter. Cocktails were lovely btw but the Sunday dinner isn’t! They ran out at beef at about 5pm but we still decided on the platter, once we received the platter, the potatoes weren’t even properly roasted, gravy was left on the platter so we had to ask for gravy to actually put on our food ( you don’t have a dry Yorkshire) and the chicken was just dry. The pork belly was lovely though Bit disappointing.

    This place is amazing. The food is excellent and very affordable. The music/DJ created the best atmosphere which made us stay much longer than we had expected. But the highlight of this place is the staff. They’re super friendly to customers and to each other - a pleasure to see and watch! Will definitely be back!

    The seats are too close together. Service is variable. The starter appeared quickly & then the main failed to appear. I had to get up from my seat to ask where it was. It arrived overcooked & tepid. You are given an hour and a half to eat which is not enough if there are delays like that experienced. The manager asks if you’re enjoying your meal when you haven’t even started to eat. At this point I said it was OK, not that he could be bothered to listen to the reply. He even argued that I had said everything was good. At the end of our 1 & a half hour slot he offered a round of drinks as compensation. We had Theatre seats books so this was a hollow gesture. He said we could come back later. Er NO. My daughter is 16 & I’m not dragging her to a bar 20 minutes walk from the theatre to get a free drink. I should have realised why there was still availability on a Saturday when the usual places we would choose were fully booked.

    Fantastic meal. There were 8 of us and the food was fabulous and the atmosphere was so buzzy! The service was absolutely fantastic, the staff were super friendly and really upbeat. Our waitress was amazing and really made the night. She said her name was Princess and was a real scream! Can’t wait to come back!

    I met a friend for lunch. Varied menu but the hummus was sparse and covered with overly oily grilled vegetables. Waitress was lovely, we were there for three hours and had a great chat.

    The people were all very friendly. The seating layout was quite tight, but they’ve certainly maximized every available space for a table! The food was delicious and I was happy with the variety of dishes available. Potentially there could be more upfront notice by the team about available specials, as I saw specials online that were not advertised in the venue.

    Excellent service even though very busy. Lovely drinks ( aperol spritz) and Caesar salad the olives and sourdough bread good too. Facilities very clean. Last minute booking and so glad we did. Have visited other venues in this street and been underwhelmed by service and food. Would definitely recommend and revisit.

    This is my local neighbourhood restaurant as I live in Soho. I was very disappointed on my visit yesterday, We had to wait over 20mins to be served, I had to ask a waiter to order. When enjoying our mains we were told that they needed the table back, we hadn't even finished our food. Then the manager came over and asked us to have our desert over on the barstool area. When I said I would rather take it away then eat on a stool they said it wasn't possible. Then when the bill came we were charged for items that were not included in our menu. Very disappointed I felt the service was so rushed yesterday, I was unable to enjoy my meal of the company of my friend due to the chopping around of tables, I have never had to chase a waiter for service, been rushed to finish my food nor had to have the bill changed for over charging all at once!!!!!!!!!!!! Sort it out Old Comptons please look after your neighbours and regulars.

    We had the 3 course set menu with Prosecco at £25 pp. There was a great buzz in the restaurant, attentive and trendy waiting staff. The food and service was excellent..great choice of food and a great for value menu. The slight downside, was it did get very noisy by the end of the meal. However, we would definitely recommend it..great value and great food and staff..thank you all.

    After being taken for brunch last year by a friend, I took my family here and once again it did not disappoint. Great food, staff and value for money! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed brunch, the atmosphere and Anna the waitress was just the icing on the cake! Would highly recommend and I can’t wait to go back again next time!

    We were so excited for our evening catching up with old friends for my wife’s birthday. Disappointed to be seated at the top of the stairs with a stag do and hen do. Music was loud and became louder with DJ. How are you meant to have a conversation? (A warning about loud music should be made at time of booking.)

    As usual I love OCB whenever an opportunity comes to go there I grab it. Me and my friend had great time, apartment from the change of the menue, which we were not aware of. My dish was completely different from I use to know it. I use to love it. This time I found it watery and bland. Yes I ate it but honestly I did not love it. In overall I would love to geo back and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

    Staff were lovely, constructive feedback, the truffle Mac and cheese tasted like macaroni in a white sauce. One of my oysters had a lot of shell in it. The chicken liver pâté was lovely and would recommend! I would have had dessert but had to leave as there was a booking after me even though I was a table of one, this was a shame as I wasn’t ready to leave but aware this is noted small on the booking confirmation. Quite pricey as well.
