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.

Saturday was my second visit to the Thomas Cubitt and it was equally as good as the first one! Food is consistently good, the service friendly (our waitress was lovely) and the atmosphere buzzy and fun. Thank you.

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 took our Mom here for Mother's day and it was just lovely. We were sat on a light, quite and spacious table over looking the dinning room where we could soak in the laid back ambience. The staff were sooo friendly. Oh and the food was delicious! Thank YOU

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.

The only complaint was the quality - or lack of it - of the special of the day.

The pork was more fat than meat - my guest had to send his back and I almost joined him. Everything else was as one would have expected having dined there before.

So no complaints but when something is labelled as a "special " perhaps effort should be made to ensure that it should be and not let down by the lack of quality of the meat.

Its hopefully a one off and won't stop me visiting again but if it had been my first time then those customers may not have returned

An honest comment which I hope will help their usual quality being maintained.

I ordered the trout, which did not come out as trout. It was hake and the waiter did not mention a thing. The fish was also way overcooked. We ordered the purple sprouting broccoli and it was normal tenderstem broccoli. I also had to ask 3 times for ice. Really not a great experience, will not be returning unfortunately.

The Thomas Cubitt was a lovely gastropub in Victoria. The pub downstairs is very busy and bustling with people, you’d struggle to find a table really! But the dining room upstairs was nice. Sadly, we were some of the first diners (booked for 6pm) and the upstairs was bitterly cold when we first walked in. They could do with warming it up a little first, as we had to keep our jackets on!

It did warm up a little as more people arrived, but was still cold overall.

The food and overall service was lovely though. Really friendly waiters and waitresses, and super tasty food for every course!

Very impressed, and would return!

I went to The Thomas Cubitt for a traditional Sunday roast. My overall experience was very good and I would go there again. The beef was kind of fatty, though, which is why I have to reduce my rating in the respective category a little bit.

Such a lovely location and we sat in an ideal place for a good girls catch up! The only thing I was disappointed with was the lack of vegetarian roast and a gravy. I did have a selection of veg spuds and Yorkshire but the gravy was not vegetarian which was really disappointing. However overall it was lovely and I will definitely be coming back soon thank you

We were staying in a Belgravia hotel overnight and going to see the Wicked Sunday matinee at the Victoria Apollo. Thomas Cubitt was perfectly located for eating after the show so we booked in advance. We weren't disappointed. The downstairs bar was very busy but we were directed to our table in the upstairs dining room. The service was great and the food very good. Very nice ambience.

The ambiance and staff were excellent but the food was disappointing. My main course was forgotten and then when it came it was hideously over salted.
Staff were excellent at trying to sort out my disappointment but none of us were overwhelmed by the food. In their defence it was just after Christmas.
