The Arber Garden is a public house, gin bar and garden terrace adjoining the Fitzrovia Chapel with seasonal British cooking, distinctive cocktails, craft beers and biodynamic wines.

Inspired by the legendary botanist and philosopher Agnes Arber, the pub and dining rooms are adorned with floral prints, potted plants and dried flowers which weave inside from the all-seasons garden terrace.

Expect delicately refined turns on British classics made with produce from local farms, flatbreads from the wood oven, an elevated weekend brunch menu and hearty Sunday roasts. Our bars are stocked with a vast collection of local and international gins alongside crafted floral cocktails, craft beers and spirits from micro distilleries.

    Enjoyed a nice meal and tasty cocktails with family and friends. Service was very good and all of the food was delicious. Would have liked to have seen a few more traditional British desserts on the menu.

    Service wasn’t great, the waitress never came to check how our food was or to clear our plates. We had to go inside to pay the bill as no one would come out to take our payments. Drinks weren’t great and were very diluted.

    Food was SUPERB.. Service not great - we were kept waiting on arrival (maitre de was doubling up as a waitress), one waitress had clearly only just started as didn't know which food was for which table. Waiters were professional and smiley on the whole, so that made up for slightly chaotic service. I would definitely return and recommend on the basis of food and surroundings. Perhaps they could do with one or two more waiting staff during busy periods?

    I took a group of colleagues to Arber Garden and everyone was super impressed at the level of service and the tastiness of the food. We were made very welcome. Only niggle around not having everything on the menu available and a suspicion that the alcoholic cocktails were mixed up with the 0% ones. We all want to go back though!

    Slow table service, had to ask several times for a drinks order. Food was generally ok, steak very fatty. Feel it is slightly over priced. Staff were friendly and helpful just not enough staff for a Friday night. Would come again for drinks but not dinner

    Very good, nice venue. Food was OK....the broccoli was luke warm and the sheherds pie, very dry....all sitting out too long. The staff were friendly and helpful, very good service. Ambience was pleasant and quiet except when a group of very loud young women sat down at table next to us, all screaming and yelling at each other and then, we could not have a proper conversation....tables too close to each other.

    Can’t recommend Arber Garden enough. Percy and Founders was one of our favourite lunch spots and we were devastated when it closed but the Arber Garden is even better. The service and food were outstanding. Can’t wait to visit again soon.

    Quite a nice setting, particularly outside but packed atmosphere. Staff were incredibly unwelcoming and cold. Food was ok. When we mentioned some feedback when we paid the bill (including the service charge) it was very negatively received. Shame.

    The Arber Garden was the perfect place for a business meal with colleagues. The restaurant has a lovely ambience, noise levels low but enough for an energetic buzz. We had a really spacious table and received excellent service throughout the evening. Everyone was really happy with their food (delicious chips and crispy squid in particular!) except the flatbread which was poor value for money given the lack of topping. I would highly recommend for a large group. Thanks for looking after us.

    Went for a Sunday roast and most importantly the food was delicious - crispy potatoes, tasty gravy, tender lamb. For pudding we had a mix of cheesecake, chocolate slice and the cake - all delicious and good portions, not too big. Only comments for improvement were that on arrival they told us the kitchen closed in 30mins so we had to hurry - we'd not been warned via email or the website (which showed they closed much later) and then they were chasing for last drink orders but other than that it was a nice experience and would come back for the roast (just a bit earlier!)

    Food absolutely delicious and appeared to be well-sourced. Terrific menu with plenty of variety. We had a free "welcome back" bottle of wine which made the overall value worthwhile, but might have considered it pricey otherwise. Atmosphere is lacking. There's nothing wrong with the decor, but it's like eating in a hotel restaurant rather than somewhere special. Service was inconsistent. Over-zealous when we arrived then absolutely nothing once we'd finished main courses. Arber Garden is good enough, but doesn't make you yearn to return.

    Lovely new restaurant,with attractive decor. Only downside is the lack of plant based meals. Also quite pricey for what you get. Would probably go again but purely for a drink and snack.

    Lovely interior and food was delicious but my vegan main course was very small for £22 - white asparagus and fennel. Despite being quiet it was hard to get the attention of the staff. Constant opening of the restaurant door kept blowing in a draft and there was another door that could have been used.

    Percy&Founders has been reincarnated under a new name . Quite busy on a Wednesday night . Obviously it is a favorite for workers dining before they go home . Rather short menu but with good choices . It would be helpful to add some more dishes both for meat eaters and vegetarians . Prices not OTT . I , personally , did not like the new layout . The rear of the restaurant has been boxed in with 'private' dining rooms . I guess there must be good demand for this . I liked the open plan layout of the previous restaurant .
