Sharing the ground floor with the magnificent triple-height lobby is The Stratford Brasserie. The seasonal menu, by Ben Harrington, formerly of Soho House, is characterised by local produce and European influences, blending classic brasserie staples with a touch of the unexpected.

Uniting locals, guests and residents over coffee, cocktails and light, relaxed dishes, The Stratford Brasserie is unlike anything in the city – a sprawling, vibrant space featuring an open kitchen, eclectic seating and lounge area and in addition an art installation called ‘Murmuration’ by Paul Cocksedge.

One of the best Sunday roasts in London, beef cooked perfectly with all the trimming were great! Really good atmosphere and we were kept topped up with drinks. 5/5

Love it here - the food is great, really lovely decor (feels swanky but also comfortable), and attentive but totally unpretentious service. Heartily recommend for a drink or date or whatever you can manage these days!

The experience was marred from the start by the service. We were left standing at the "wait here to be seated" position. At least four members of staff stared straight at us and ignored us. No one came over to advise that a hostess would be along shortly. When a hostess did arrive, she told us we would have the table for one and half hours, which directly contradicts the booking terms on Open Table, which state two hours for a party of four.
On being seated, when we asked what the composition was of the cocktail of the month (Pornstar Spritz), we were told: "is Champagne and some juice". Ignoring that the Champagne reference is incorrect, why can't waiters simply say that they don't know and fetch someone who does?
After we replaced that waiter, the service improved, although a request to have roast beef cut from the rarer part of the joint was met with a look of complete confusion. Eventually, having been given a choice of medium or well done, I went with something else.
The food was for the most part good, although my baked eggs were added to the dish too early and were consequently hard and the roast beef ordered by another member of the party was so well done that a cobbler would have rejected it.

Ambience is good, in that the space is reasonably tasteful, but it is a cavernous hotel lobby space, so if you're looking for something intimate, look elsewhere.

Prices are fine.

The Riedel glassware is wasted - this is never going to feel like a tasteful outing in the West End.

The house Champagne is Perrier Jouet, which is better than most.

This restaurant is in a hotel, my personal opinion is that should be mentioned when advertising a restaurant.

Service is slow and inconsistent, the portions are very small. When ordering the chicken it was not mentioned that a side would be needed to actually complete the course. I had to order a pizza after my main course.

As myself and my friend are pescatarians we didn’t feel the menu catered for our needs (even though I called the restaurant a few days before and was assured that they could cater for our needs)
The staff were friendly and attentive, however the table service was slightly contradictory as when the food and the drinks arrived the staff were really close.

Bottomless Prosecco was advertised as £20 for 2 hours on their website. When we arrived we found they had changed the price to £25 for 1.5 hours, so we ordered a jug of pornstar martini which cost £30 and supposedly was meant to give you 6 glasses worth of drink. There was so much ice in the tiny jug that arrived that the 3 of us probably had about a shot glass of drink each. Such a rip off. Food was decent but wouldn’t recommend for drinks at all.

The space looks really great. Nice open space and nice outdoor area. Food was fairly expensive for what it was. Staff was unexperienced and not used to delivering a high quality service that you would expect when paying these prices.

Service and quality of food did not match the decor and therefore it was way to expensive for what you got.

I came here to have a business brunch on Saturday afternoon and we requested to be moved to a different table to ensure we were productive and could also eat. The staff were lovely and even thought about all of the options we had if we needed a laptop charger etc. The food is great value the vegan pizza was brilliant and the green juice is a must! Great spot in a lovely hotel.

Now this has been one of my fav locations for dinner and the lounge since it opened regularly visiting with my wife and good friends. This was my fourth visit even though I now live in Edinburgh. However this visit was brought down by OpenTable emailing me confirming my reservation for two on the day but on arrival being told the Brasserie was not available, next there was no reservation for me and then that I had reserved a table for 7. The confusion was not appreciated :-( . The staff did try and smooth over the issue to recover the situation and we did get our table for two :-) .

Lovely food, attentive staff, and gave advice/options where necessary (I’m pregnant and my friend has allergies)!

They also didn’t rush us, which was really nice, as it meant we got to spend lots of time catching up with each other.

Great vibe, and was pretty busy, which was nice to see! Would definitely return

Food was well cooked and prompt. Service with a SMILE would be nice (face masks excepted but that’s even more reason to articulate genuine interest and politeness through words) .
I decided to have the burger since the steak of the day was £35 for a 250g rib eye - almost 3 times the cost of the next most expensive main.

Would go back to try the brunch which looks good.

Very average experience. It wasn’t busy at all, there were a number of waiters on duty but it still was a challenge to get anyone’s attention. Roasted cauliflower was amazing but the rest of the food was quite bland and boring. There was nothing wrong with the meal but I just think that there are much better places in the area to go to, and for much better value for money

Some positive some negative really. They haven’t got the prosseco brunch mastered yet. Food was nice. Slow coming out and at all times but tasty. Service was pretty terrible. Staff seemed to loose interest as soon as you had sat down. Nice atmosphere and a nice restaurant just needs fine tuning and notice to details are lacking. Overall ok but had much better experiences else where so not rushing back in a hurry.
