Helpful staff and very accommodating. I really enjoyed the vegan selection for the afternoon tea. I would however prefer to be seated farther from the driveway/parking area as it can be quite noisy when a vehicle drives by. A motorcycle was being revved while having our meal which annoying tbh. But will definitely be back! :)
Thank you for making our lunch a lovely experience. Thanks to Tsampika for her wonderful service!
The food was excellent, wines list good and fair value and the service was excellent. The only annoying element was the loud supercars that kept circling around us as obviously the eating area is in the forecourt area where cars are still driving in and out.
Great outdoor dining experience. Friendly and helpful staff!
A lovely afternoon tea. The scones were warm, buttery and beautiful. I tried the rose jam which was beautiful. Accompanied by 2 open sandwiches which were so yummy. Nice and sheltered we didn't feel the cold! Heaters and blankets provided which was a lovely touch. Finished with a glass of gusbourne sparkling. A real treat! Well done
Great food and service, this pop up needs to stay.
Just went for drinks for a birthday. Very welcoming, great service with very friendly staff. very well set up for outdoor dining. Although London/Mayfair prices, the cocktails were still cheaper than many other establishments in the area
Me and my partner had an amazing date night last night. The food and drinks were absolutely amazing and the service was impeccable. So well organised and we were seen to plenty of times. I’d like to thank all the waiters and waitresses, most importantly Laura. She was very professional and super kind with a constant smile on her face.
We will see you again soon

We had lunch here with some friends on a weekend. Despite having flagged in the reservation that my friends had dietary restrictions, there was almost nothing on the menu for them and the restaurant could not offer any alternative products to adjust dishes e.g. GF pasta (they just served some GF toast). Even when we asked if two of us (not the GF guest) could have afternoon tea instead they didn't have enough stocked as back-up to accommodate a vegetarian menu (I wonder why they could not have just offered 2x egg sandwich and 2x cucumber sandwich). Considering that the place is very expensive, we would have expected the kitchen to check dietary restrictions in advance and be prepared, or at least for it to be more flexible when it came to our requests.
Celebrating 3 birthdays. Excellent food and superb service, especially from Herlyn. Even the light rain we had did not dampen the enthusiasm of the staff or spoil the evening. We were warm fry and well looked after. Thank you all.
Not enough heaters or umbrellas to protect from the rain. Staff were friendly and helpful but the food was mediocre at best especially for the price. I wouldn’t go back and would not recommend.
Loved it. Very attentive staff. They provided blankets.
Amazing food, impeccable service and the drinks were fantastic! Definitely the best place we have been since lockdown lifted. We cannot wait to go back!
We never managed to confirm the booking, they did not pick up the phone. Then they charged me a cancellation fee (50£) even if I couldn’t confirm the details with them.
Our visit will be dull without the brilliant charm from the service team.
Good atmosphere, good service, food was okay, suits better for lunch and afternoon tea.
Atmosfera molto londinese e cibo di ottima qualità
We had a wonderful lunch at the Forecourt on Saturday - the staff couldn’t have been more attentive and the food was wonderful (highly recommend the lobster salad!) thank you for such great service!
Excellent service, only hurdle was cold fries and not enough heating but overall great
Though the setting is very pretty, the quality of certain things was not great. My friends and I ordered a Margarita cocktail which was the worst we’ve ever had (in drinkable). We ordered a tuna tartare which was quite bland and simple. You couldn’t taste the flavours which were supposed to be in the dressing (sesame etc). The Riesling, olives and cheese cake we had for dessert however were great!
What a lovely spot! The food was delicious and the service amazing. A little background music would have topped it off. I will definitely be returning
Basically a platform area built in a car arrival area/wind tunnel. Yes they have a few inefficient heaters doing very little, but not much point when anything that is not tied down blows away.
After 90 minutes, and considering desert while waiting on service or to try to catch the eye of a member of staff, we were approached by a member of staff who told us we only had 30 minutes left at the table. Wow.
Food was average, never again.
Lovely setting and great service with great food, went a bit chilly when the sun went in and we were in the shade but there was a blanket on each chair and heaters available. Highly recommended.
Lovely terrace and atmosphere, have heaters and blankets but food was average
Needs more heaters and better ones.. they are fairly useless. Service needs speeding up too.
Lovely friendly service
One of the best experiences I’ve had. The food was impeccable and the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Would highly recommend the salmon fillet.
A great, creative outdoor space, enticing menu options well executed, and great service. I'll be back.
The food was good but it took them ages to serve it
We went early lunch time. It was so quiet and out of the way of busy streets. Previous review mentioned no heaters but they had a few heaters dotted about, and blankets available.
Service was really good.
Salad not great but nice ambiance. more heaters needed
Very enjoyable afternoon dinner and the food was excellent
It was my birthday and the staff couldn't have been kinder! They are so enthusiastic about their new set up and were the nicest.
We booked a table for 6 and were told it couldn’t be accommodated once we arrived. Thankfully the manager helped us find a solution. The maitre D could not be more unhelpful if she tried! The rest was nice, food was decent albeit priced for a level of service that demands more.
Despite the previous review, we dressed very warm and went. I can confirm they definitely don't have enough heaters! Otherwise good food and setting.
Great food, service and ambience. It is outdoors and blankets and heaters are provided but this is England so dress appropriately
We had a lovely time on Friday here. My mum loved her crab cake and I too thoroughly enjoyed my calamari albeit being rather a large portion!! The main meals were equally tasty and we loved the bread that you usually get in JW Steakhouse. All the staff were warm and friendly with a particular mention for Herlyn Fernando who remembered us from previous visits and made this visit that little bit more special!! We finished off with a pot of tea and a delicious welcome back strawberry tart!!
It was freezing. There are not enough heaters. Unfortunate as it could be quite nice if we were not shivering. Every other restaurant which charges half the price has better heating. They should have designed this better. We all expected better from a 5* hotel
