The food just looks pretty but tastes horrible, I got the sushi macro bowl with a chai latte & my friend got the matcha pancakes and a lemonade, both meals were horrible.

Very hip brunch place and friendly staff. The food was very delicious but the value/price ratio doesn't fit. I had a avocado/salmon/poached egg Sandwich which was 13 Pounds but so small that I had to order another plate to not be hungry anymore.
It feels like you are being ripped off. It's nice but I would not go there again. There are so many better places than this in London.

I was sceptical of The Locals as I know a lot of these instgramable places can often not live up to the hype. However the locals really lived up to the Instagram pictures. Delicious and beautifully presented!
Service was great. I asked for dairy free which they got wrong but as soon as I asked to make it dairy free instead they remade it straight away with no problems.
It’s a little expensive for where it’s situated however, no atmosphere and within a apartment complex. But the food makes up for it!

Loved it. The truffle and mushroom eggs were so fluffy and the salted Carmel brownie was the best sweet treat. Can’t wait to try more from the menu.

The food is nothing to write home about for its price or area. The venue is perfect however, very let down by the poor service. We had to wait over an hour for food to arrive for a party of two. When it arrived, we had to remind the waiter that they missed an item. Then it took another 45 mins for the item to arrive. Staff also seemed annoyed to be there.

Very instagramable and good ambiance but the matcha pancake was a little too sticky and too sweet while the pancake itself is not fluffy

The place does not serve good food, the pictures of the food do no represent what you are then provided, there is no lobster in the lobster Benedict that is meaningful, go to the ivy chains for your lobster benedict where you actually gat lobster and it’s the same price

Great food and drink. A bit on the pricey side given portion sizes but didn't detract from the overall experience as quality was high

My sister and I visited The Locals for Brunch over the bank holiday weekend. It was exactly what the doctor ordered. We managed to get a table outside in the sun where we enjoyed probably the best Chai Latte I have ever tasted as well as the Gluten Free Buckwheat and Blueberry pancakes. Slightly slow in the kitchen but the sun was a good distraction. Service was great! All in all a lovely experience.

Everything good, but we had to call the staff as they did not notice we were waiting for long to order.

I was not happy with my matcha latte. It was not strong enough. Also I was not happy with the matcha pancakes as they were nothing as in the photos they post on Instagram.

The overall experience was great, however I find important to mention that the matcha pancakes displayed in the menu were not available, as we tried ordering them 1 hour before the cafe closed.

My friend and I had the matcha pancakes. They were really good and quite different so that was very interesting and delicious. I also ordered a tea and I wish it was in a tea pot rather than half a size of a normal cup. The place was cozy yet had a lot of light and I enjoyed how quiet it was. I will definitely come back

Welcoming fail. Had to wait 5 mins by the door before someone says "hi" even though waitress pass by few times. Got a jug of water with vinegar in there. Got the wrong order for coffees. Waited 35mins for 1 pancake and 1 Benedict eggs. Food is delicious but won't go back.

The Locals proposes a large variety of drinks and dishes that are both suitable for breakfast and the rest of the day. The atmosphere is very calm and welcoming. I would strongly recommend this place for anyone looking to have a drink, a sandwich, a proper meal or a cake. Everything is great.
