Dear Guest,

It is with a heavy heart that we have to close The Wigmore doors following the recent government announcement that London has moved to Tier 3.

Please rest assured that we will reopen as soon as possible and will be delighted to welcome you back when that day comes.

In the meantime we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a more prosperous New Year.

Kind Regards,
The Wigmore

The atmosphere was nice. Very classic and fancy decoration.

Food was a bit pricey, it cost £12 a few pieces of new potatoes, artichokes and leaves. Service was okay. We were not paid attention too much. The rule now is the drink can only be served with food on the table. However, they have not asked us for the last order, which is annoying.

I am not sure if I would go back again.

Really lovely food beautifully presented. Very helpful and friendly service. Good safety arrangements for Covid. Was sorry that starters were not available too, really wanted to try the "hirseradish" crumpets in sample menu on website. Suggest website menu is updated as starters not available at the moment

Love this place. Staff were great and looked after us so well, even after I spilt my drink by accident, they rushed over and replaced it within seconds. Had the scotch eggs and chips which were recommended and they were fantastic!

Everything was excellent - a big thank you to all the staff who were attentive (without being overbearing). The cocktails were perfect - super delicious! The cheese toastie & burger were as good as all the positive reviews suggest!

The staff didn’t rush us despite my partner taking work calls - thank you for supporting an ideal setup for the laptop - super accommodating and helpful!

Thank you very much - we will surely be back! :-)

Food and service were great, really nice place. People told to wear masks when not seated. Temperature checked at the door. Toilets were clean.

Only downside was the tables were a little bit tight together so needed to squeeze past a bit. Other than that was great! Will definitely go back.

We were seated in the rear of the bar area. The two tables next to use had a party of 5 and 2. There were all from the same family and it was very noisy, with individuals swapping seats and standing next to our table. The nearest table was less than a meter away. As far as Covid 19 measures were concerned for these individuals it did not apply. It was very frustrating for us to sit there and try to enjoy our food and drink whilst the other individuals from the other tables were mingling. The management at the Wigmore ignored this completely. Very disappointing.

We will not return.

My favourite spot in the West End for a drink and a bite to eat. Once you enter you feel special and valued. This is no soulless hotel bar but a smart drinking establishment. all table service at the moment but we were looked after like valued guests by the staff. The Guinness was perfectly poured and the food as good as always. it's a bit of a pain having to put on a mask to go to the toilet but you mind less when in a fantastic bar like this.

Good social distance observation and approach in the main bar with high ceilings. The one side room seemed a little tight on space to me so I asked to be moved and this was accommodated well.

Would recommend,generally, and in these crazy times.

We did not eat, just had drinks, so the ‘food’ rating here is just so I could complete the form! Looked nice from a distance.

Only issue of concern was the volume of the music - too loud for a relaxed evening.

It was my girlfriend’s first time visiting the UK, I brought her here for a late lunch, she absolutely loved it. I had the XXL toastie and she had the burger, the food was really good, but we couldn’t finish it all. Would definitely come back again

Nice room with good selection of drinks and food.
Showed the football on very high quality screen.
We were able to stay at our table beyond the original booking which was great.

The floods was very good and the service was also good. A hiccup at the end - “it’s too late to order dessert because the kitchen is closed” despite no attempt to offer us dessert or warm if the closing kitchen - was rescued by the serving staff and all ended well.

So I would recommend a The Wigmore - just keep an eye on your watch as the evening progresses.
