Small menu, but very tasty smoked food and lovely salads.
The Stoke House is so much fun! Great cocktails, service and even better food!
Absolutely horrid. An attractive modern restaurant in a good location, with Spanish-style options for smaller quantities. BUT, food prepared and presented with the finesse of a pyschopath in an abattoir. Sides essential - but all are extra. Oblong tables not sociable for groups. Average wine very pricey. Service charge obligatory. Do yourself a favour and give it a miss.
Only difficulty was that we specifically asked if the roast salmon was smoked and were told it was - it wasn't which caused some disappointment. Otherwise food was lovely and cocktails fab.
First time here. Good space and great service, but... the food arrived tepid and very quickly, suggesting it wasn’t to order (was it intentional?), but it was tasty. It was overpriced for the portion size too (£70) per head for 2 courses and wine. I’d give it another go but be a bit more discerning with my menu choices
Worst Sunday roast I’ve ever had . Raw vegetables , cold Yorkshire puddings and gravy that was stock swimming around the plate . £110 for 4 . Complete tourist trap and no effort made at all ... clueless ! 1 waitress, possibly American showed some sign of professionalism otherwise run by students!
We went for a pre-theatre dinner and found the menu short but interesting. The quality of the food was good and the service efficient. The pricing was what you might expect from a London based restaurant chain. I wouldn't say it was fine dining but good straightforward food.
I would go back again if the same circumstances were prevalent.
We were from out of town and not disappointed.
Love this place for a fun and relaxed night. Hearty food - the meat platter to share was delicious and there was plenty of it. We arrived in time for happy hour. 2 for 1 cocktails that were so tasty. Our waiter was great. Friendly and attentive service. We will be back.
A pleasant surprise with very tasty items. Will return.
What a gem of a find!! 10 out of 10 in everything ,will be back :-)
Slightly disappointing experience - food felt tired and the place lacked atmosphere.
Fantastic place. Fantastic food. Great service. Gay-friendly (which I’m sad to say is not always a given in restaurants!)
Staff were attentive and helpful, explaining the options available- opted for the chef salad of the day and expressive martini and waiters recommendation. Nice buzz about the place and tables not crammed in so you could chat comfortably. Overall, a nice place to drop in and enjoy casual dining. I would recommend.
Terrible service. Good food. We sat for 20-30 minutes between server coming to table.
Great staff, memorably tasty food and a relaxed environment. Oh and amazing cocktails
Loved the food , staff were happy and friendly . Really nice dining experience .
Convenient place and good value for money. Service was fine.
Great food. Lively atmosphere and a decent price
Meal let down by poor service, waited for 15 mins to place dessert order when restaurant was very quiet , totally ignored , gave up and had pud elsewhere.
Great venue. Good food and good value for money. The staff were welcoming even though I was a little early (before they were open for business). They even charged my phone for me with a smile. Highly recommend.
The food was amazing and so was the service. The only small downside was the noise level as it got busy.
Great restaurant and good options if you are on keto diet!
Great food, lovely ambience and quality drinks. One of my favourite restaurants, the short rib is amazing
We experienced excellent service on this occasion and this made our visit memorable. The food was delicious and the cocktails were also surpringly good. I will definitely go back.
Very enjoyable lunch. Quick service & really tasty food. Thank you
Disappointing, food very average, overpriced and unfortunately didn't enjoy our visit.
We had a birthday weekend in London and on our last night decided to stay local to our hotel. The atmosphere was lovely, and we had a great young waiter serving us who was helpful with the menu and cocktail recommendations! Food was wonderful (had the meat platter to share) and very good value for money.
The menu looked amazing; the smell of smoking meat as I walked in was mouth watering; the staff were friendly, and the cocktails an art form. Despite having an ambience reminiscent of the home furnishings section of a very upmarket department store, I had high hopes. The food was... fine. The short rib was dry and a bit under seasoned, but otherwise there was nothing wrong with any of it. It was just a bit disappointing. The stand-out dish was the green bean and broccoli side (which I highly recommend). The lamb belly was better than the beef rib. The smoked cauliflower cheese was on a par with the decent versions that have sprung up recently in many steak/bbq style restaurants.
If you are a fan of the fairly stark, ultra-modern restaurant styling, you would enjoy the atmosphere and the food is good enough. I find it feels slightly sterile, and so would have to be wowed by the food to balance that. And I wasn't.
Handy & upbeat pre-post theater spot to rally with friends over tasty local smoked meat &/or vegan dishes, beers, & vintages! Pleasant & hospitable wait staff too!
Fast service, good food and friendly staff. Recommend the meat feast and cheese board.
Stoke House lager was very easy to drink and the cocktails were good. I’ll definitely be coming back.
Was really looking forward to the evening, ambience is good but the food was terrible (2 of us shared the meat platter).
Unfortunately, will not be returning.
Really enjoyed the experience. We took advantage of their pre/post theatre menu which was really good value.
I went to the Stoke House for the first time, i had booked online and asked for a good table, when we got there, they gave me the best Table! the food was great and service very good. I will be going again.
The place is all about meat, and that element of the meal was excellent. Salmon dish also highly rated. Sides all tasty, and wine delicious and good value. Down side: the pork scratchings starter and coleslaw side we ordered never materialised. But that didn't spoil a very enjoyable experience.
Really enjoyed the ambiance and service. A nice find in busy Victoria!
Thought it was very expensive for quality of food. Not good that no extras such as potatoes salad or vegetables included in price. £9 for 2 portions of potatoes is ridiculous even for London prices!!!!
Chicken wasn't hot enough.
The food was great but the service was a little slow and my side came out much later than my main which was irritating. Nice that you can order wine in a carafe if you can't quite manage a whole bottle before the theatre!
Third time I've been to The Stoke House and this time for a business lunch. Staff are always friendly and helpful, the food was fab and overall a lovely lunch. The only criticism I have is of the wine glasses. I don't like wine glasses without a stem - just a personal preference!
Disappointing table service with limited menu and incorrect order, although only three mains chosen. Stayed for a drink at the bar where service did improve.
The location is great - right by Victoria Train station so it was convenient for mothers day. Food tasted good (a little over seasoned with pepper) but it came out so fast it didnt feel special. It was also luke warm, and even after asking for them to be reheated, it came back only slightly warmer. Sunday menu was restricted to sunday roasts only which was disappointing to not even be able to enjoy a starter. Pisco drinks were 2-for-1 during happy hour and tasted very good. Service was fine, although a little slow at times (getting bill). We wouldn't return as considering it was a special occasion, we didn't feel like treatment had been very special.
