    Absolutely delightful! My friends and I had a fantastic time at Buttery London. The ambiance was charming, and David, our Irish waiter, truly elevated our experience. His warm hospitality and attentive service made us feel right at home. The food was exquisite, with each dish bursting with flavor. From start to finish, it was an unforgettable dining experience. We'll definitely be returning soon!

    The ButteryResponded on 7 May 2024
    Dear guest, We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced regarding the seating arrangements during your visit. Our seating availability inside may have been limited due to being fully booked, which might have resulted in us not being able to offer seating indoors at that time. We genuinely regret any discomfort you may have felt while dining outside. Our staff members strive to provide the best service possible, and had we been aware of your discomfort, we would have made every effort to accommodate you inside where it's warmer. Your comments are invaluable to us as we continually seek to improve our service and enhance our guests' experience. We hope for the opportunity to welcome you back soon and provide you with a more enjoyable visit. Warm regards, Martina

    I had two eggs hen. Portion size was small and the sourdough hardly toasted. In fact I thought it was eggs and bread not eggs on toast. Food quite cool and not hot . My friend asked to send hers back as food cold. When the bill came they charged her for two breakfasts. They had made a mistake and said she should have been charged only 50 %. I’ve never heard of this before. At the very least you should be informed of this and to say the food was served hot and to be charged for the food not being hot is quite unacceptable. We still paid the service charge and we did get a full refund for the extra breakfast. The waiter was pleasant and helpful. I probably would return to try it again. I did see some lovely and colourful breakfasts on other tables .

    Food and service was ok but the 1.5 hour table time was too short and wasn't known at the time of making a booking so I'm rather disappointed at the lack of communication in that regard which really spoiled the whole experience.

    Lovely atmosphere and decor, delicate and cozy and elegant. The food is good, we had brunch and with one main and one drink each we spent £25pp ca. The food is delicious, the hollandaise sauce and muffins were delicate and tasteful and not heavy at all.

    I'd been planning to dine here for a while - and it was well worth the wait! An absolute delight. A hearty breakfast (my guest said the poached eggs were "superior"), attentive service and gorgeous decor. As other diners have noted, the tight spaces can make it a bit of a squeeze. However, looking forward to returning in summer for brunch in the garden.

    Wait staff was very nice and attentive. Hotel and restaurant are really beautiful. Though well made, the food was a bit under seasoned and was just missing a bit of flavour. Only real disappointment was the Bloody Mary. No care or effort was made. It was just some tomato juice, vodka, and a celery stick. That is not a proper cocktail. We added our own salt, pepper, lime, and Tabasco just to give it some flavour.

    Visited this cozy spot for dessert and tea with friends. The ambiance was warm and inviting, perfect for relaxation. The desserts were delectable, each bite a delight, and the tea selection was exquisite. A memorable experience where conversations flowed as smoothly as the tea. Highly recommend for a peaceful retreat.

    Service from Host was lovely and welcoming. Tables are very very close together so found it a bit awkward as you can hear conversations of neighbors and have to squeeze in and out of tables. The iced coffee and croissant was delicious, but eggs benedict & chips for brunch was very disappointingly watery & average and not worth the £17 price tag. My partner enjoyed his French Toast but Mocha was watery. £60 for coffee and brunch is steep even given the location. The outdoor area is beautiful and would come back for cake and coffee but wouldn't have food here again.
