My daughter and I ate at the Stoke House before the Hamilton show. We really enjoyed it, food and service was really good and the restaurant has a great vibe. Our food, drinks and desert came really quick and we had no problems getting to the show on time. Thanks!

The food was excellent, but service, although friendly, was overbearing. Various waiting staff kept coming to the table one after the other to ask if ready to order, even when asked to come back in 5 minutes. Didn't really have time to look at menus, or have a chat. We were wanting to be able to have a relaxing lunch, but it was quite stressful having the staff constantly coming to the table. We could understand if the restaurant was crowded and they needed to shift the tables, but it was a very quiet day.

We had the smoked meat platter for two. Presentation was poor and the platter was placed down by the waiter without any detail of what was on the plate. The food was ok on the whole but wouldn’t be excited about going back. It is a nice looking restaurant inside though

Booked this restaurant prior to theatre matinee performance, was in walking distance so was perfect location. However the food was not great for the money I would have expected a lot better quality food. The service was slow and this was not due to the number of diners.

Ordered two cocktails and the Sunday dinner for two. The food arrived within minutes of our cocktails; and took too much time to get the server’s attention to order wine. Service felt rushed and not up to standard.

Food was very good. Ambience was good, too. For the money, service was a letdown.

Delicious food, although it arrived alarmingly quickly after we ordered. The waitress was overkeen though and we felt very rushed even though we still had the table for more than thirty minutes. I had told them it was our wedding anniversary but the waitress interrupted us numerous times pushing for us to order dessert or more drinks. It was a shame because the food was very tasty with perfectly cooked meat and lovely flavours. The cocktails were good too. Would go back but would insist on a slower pace.

Absolutely terrible. The food was appalling. Three of us ordered steak which came with sweet potato. The sweet potato was so burnt it was not edible. I ordered a medium steak this was raw on the inside and burnt on the outside. It was one of the worse meals i have ever had and most tables were sending their food back.

Lovely venue. Attentive and helpful staff.

We had the meat selection mixed grill £21 per person Lamb and short ribs very tender. Chicken leg succulent however breast of chicken a little dry.Generous portion size The dish also came with sauted potatoes which were tasty.We had a side dish of Mixed vegetables a little overcooked. The side dish of mac and cheese was generous and very tasty. . We were going to see Hamilton a great bonus the restaurant is just 2 minutes walk away. Forgot to mention house red wine was excellent and the cappuccino was smooth and creamy.
£68 for 2 people not the cheapest but worth it.

Its my second visit here. This time we tried the pre-theatre menu which was top-notch. The food was still really delish at a high standard and the waitress was very attentive, always approaching our table with a smile. The happy hour cocktails were also great value and definately not watered down. Will definately recommend and definately go back! :)

The team was lovely with us. We were 8 people + 3 babies. Our table was orignially in the middle of the restaurant, butensure we would be confortable with the babies the team gave us a bigger space.
The waiter made sure we had everything we wanted.

First visit, but a great experience. Searched the internet to find somewhere to eat pre-theatre and wasn't disappointed ! I chose Cornish Rump of Beef for my main course and it was delicious. My partner had Halloumi Salad, which she said was equally nice !

We enjoyed a good dinner for two: belly of lamb and pork chops, after sharing a beetroot salad. Then we had coffee to round it off. All the dishes tasted good but I would like my pork chops to be more done and less pink, and the fat more rendered. It was a nice evening. Only criticism was that because of the open-plan kitchen, we felt the air circulation could be improved.

My son and I were attending the evening performance of Hamilton. We chose The Stoke House due to it’s proximity to the theatre and also it was recommended by the hotel that we were staying in. We were certainly not disappointed! We were having the pre theatre meal which was excellent value for money. The quality was superb and the drinks weren’t overpriced. All in all, an excellent restaurant. One that I shall recommend and will certainly return if I have the good fortune to return to London.

Arrived early but our table was ready, we had a choice. Drinks menu was given to us promptly. Food menu followed, had to ask for pre theatre menu. Choose off this good value but the steak I chose was recommended to be rare to medium cooked, that was a No No for me. So we both choose from the main menu. A varied choice of meats. Didn't wait too long, sipping a cocktail and people watching. Steak melted like butter in your mouth. Not a huge amount of food but enough. Desert menu was limited, but enjoyed. Waiter was very vigilant just standing behind us hovering a little, he was pleasant. Would recommend the stoke house especially if you want a steak.

I had read mixed reviews about Stoke House. Those held true. It’s a crowded and noisy venue. We had to yell across the table to be heard. The waitress was a bit slow, but she was really busy. My husband’s glass of wine didn’t appear until the entrees arrived and he had to remind the waitress about his wine order. My lamb was undercooked, even for medium rare. The vegetables that came with it were room temperature and seemed as if they had been sitting around a while. Definitely not worth the money.

Cooles Londoner Ambiente, netter und aufmerksamer Service.
Vorspeisen: Hähnchenleberpastete war nicht aufregend, aber ok. Der Haloumisalat war sehr schön, lediglich etwas zu lange auf dem Grill und dadurch ziemlich dunkel.
Hauptspeisen: Sehr gut gemachter Lammbauch, das Huhn war ebenfalls richtig gut.
Applecramble als Abschluss auch sehr schön.
Dazu Gratiswasser und Dead Pony Bier. Alles gut.
