Fun atmosphere and solidly good food. Fish and chips and burger were excellent - the sausage/mashed potato was not totally my thing but not bad. Service was attentive, and has a lovely rose to drink. I liked eating downstairs at the pub. The upstairs, where you can make reservations, is quieter and more formal.

Been several time but first time for Sunday lunch, 6 of us - really convivial environment, sat for 3 hours with no pressure at all to leave. Attentive but not pushy service in a bright cosy room. Sunday roast, starters and deserts excellent - the only slightly weak dish was the pasta (I think Nettle Ravioli) which was a bit bland.
Will be back again

Went to Thomas Cubitt on a recommendation from Fodors guide book and the restaurant's proximity to our lodging. Had a wonderful final meal in London before heading home. The starters and mains were delicious and ample in size. Desserts were Ok but not on a par with the other courses. Overall, I would return when next in London.

This was my third visit, always in Flower Show week. However, after recommending the restaurant to friends, we were very disappointed this year. We were shown upstairs (where we’ve sat before) after being given the menu the waiter had to be asked to serve us. Prices were much more expensive and nothing that we really got excited about, so we asked if there was a table available downstairs. We then waited an hour and a quarter before we got our starter. We were given some complimentary olives after an hour and I asked for some bread. My friend’s fish was rather small, my burger was ok.
As a result of our wait we didn’t get to the flower show until quarter to four and were unable to see all the exhibits in the time. So not a very positive experience this year.

An excellent restaurant; interesting menu and delightful staff downstairs in the bar and upstairs in the dining room. Every single morsel was delicious, beautifully cooked and lovingly presented. With one exception. The only carbohydrate side dish on the menu were fries. However one dish on the menu was accompanied by Jersey royals. We asked if we could have some with our meal. No, chef says no!! Apparently he didn’t have any spare? We ordered the fries. Frozen, skin on, over salted and quite clearly suffering from bottom of the bag syndrome. Horrible. What a great sadness that the lack of a boiled potato should ruin, what in every other way was, a perfect meal.

We had the nicest time at The Thomas Cubitt recently and could not have been looked after better. Although having booked an upstairs table we were so comfortable sitting downstairs that we asked if it was able to change to eat downstairs. No problem and we really enjoyed our food. Great service and value in a wonderful atmosphere.

The pub itself is nice but thats about all that we liked! The Sunday roast priced at £24 came on a huge plate and defined quantity not quality. Presentation 1/10, a mound of cabbage strewn on the plate with small slivers of mediocre beef. The main dishes were expensive and so small it was painful paying £15+ for them. My cod and Charlotte potatoes was a tiny piece of fish and I counted the grand sum of 3 tiny potatoes on the side. 4 people, 2 courses and one drink each came to nearly £200 , absolutely not worth it im afraid. Watching one of the wait staff push a white sauce into a big serving bottle using his fingers was the pièce de résistance for our experience here.

Disappointed to be in a back room, even though I had booked a couple of months in advance. It was noisy and our guests seemed underwhelmed. Food, shared wing of beef, was good but a little cold. Beef served with veg on a wooden board which looked great, but the heat had gone out of it.
Not sure now if we will return.

Perfect for a civilised, unpretentious but really top quality British meal. The dining room upstairs was quiet without being too quiet and the menu was reassuringly small. The waiter (young, South African) was natural and extremely friendly, even offering me to taste a few different wines before making up my mind. I’ve been here several times, it’s my restaurant of choice near Victoria.

We entered Thomas Cubitt through the din and residual tobacco smell of the pub. An employee grunted and pointed to the stairs to the dining room. We found our way to the dining room on the second floor.

There was an open table near a window, but when we asked for it were told it was reserved. (We had a reservation!) We were seated at a small table next to a fireplace. The space was lighted by a floor lamp that shone into my dinner companion's eyes. She switched it off.

Shortly, a waiter arrived and, literally, reprimanded my wife for turning off the lamp without permission. He mumbled something about safety. He did not turn on the lamp.

Service, generally, was good, but slow. The food was excellent, except my chicken was dry and not helped by the greasy gravy covering it.

We left rather quickly as the incident about the lamp made us very uncomfortable.

Thomas Cubitt is NOT a value. We will not return.

This is a stylish gastropub with many different ambiances depending on the floor and room. We ate upstairs in a small dining room and the ambiance was very pleasing, lighting, noise and seating were all very comfortable. The food was excellent. Our waiter was not the smoothest touch, but other staff with whom we interacted were very welcoming. There was a lively bar scene downstairs that looked like fun. Overall, a good outing!

I had the Sunday roast dinner - which was nice but could have been hotter. My husband had the fish and chips but his fish looked overcooked. They were changing the wine menu so there was limited choice of wine available. The first floor dinning room is nice but even though it has high ceilings and wasn't overly busy it was still noisy - but that may have been due to the other guests. The service was pleasant as was the overall experience but I wouldn't rush back there when there are so many other better local options available.
