We had the best time at Old Compton Brasserie. The food was delicious and with the lunch time discount it was very good value. We also took advantage of the Aperol deal which was a nice surprise to see on the menu when we arrived. We were celebrating our graduation and the staff were very friendly and attentive, letting us stay for much longer than we had booked to indulge in more prosecco! Will definitely be returning and would highly recommend.

We arrived for dinner at 10 and were bowled over by the buzz and the plethora of beautiful young people - this is clearly the place to dine on a Friday night! The menu consists of perfectly executed comfort food (my duck confit was superb as was the raspberry pavlova ‘sharing dessert’. Cocktails were delicious, varied and imaginative - my Whisky Old Fashioned came in a bell jar with smoke which greatly enhanced the taste. Service was excellent and staff are friendly and highly efficient. Great value for money considering the quality of food, atmosphere and service. We will be dining here again regularly I think!

Lamb rump was delicious but very small portion.
Cocktails were overpriced.
Truffle Mac and cheese wasn’t all that
Korean bbq wings were nice.
Service charge quite high.

As always I’ve had a fantastic meal. I took friends on this occasion who were visiting from Ireland. If you’re looking a lovely meal in a trendy brasserie in central, this is the place for you. All guests were impressed with their meals and drinks!

A bright buzzy brasserie with smart friendly service. Food was good, not outstanding but very acceptable. My partner commented that her veggie starter and main course was the best she'd had in ages. Cocktails a little disappointing, wishy washy with no kick. but you can't have everything. All in all, a very pleasant lunch and I would definitely go back.

It was great to be able to get a booking and to be there early enough to sit at one of the outdoor tables before it got too busy. There was a lot of noise from the surrounding outdoor seating spaces, and a more than vibrant atmosphere, but really nice. Our waiter was spot on with the service. Nice and friendly and smiling. Great food too. I always enjoy it here. Good value for money.

We book a table for 8 I went 3 days before to check and we did not get the table I asked for .
I had friends from USA and was embarrassed.
The Sunday roast comes with a glass of Prosecco but they charged for the procesco we had to have 20 mins conversation to sort the bill out.
We are not tight just believe what you say you should do.
I know this will be o deaf ears but I was very unhappy as I come to your place twice a week.
Normally great service .

The best chicken salad I have every eaten - found this jewel via trip advisor and it certainly did not disappoint - we had a vegan and vegetarian in our group and they were equally well catered for. We all loved it there.
