The Laughing Gravy
Relaxed and inviting, we offer an incredible menu of fresh, seasonal dishes with a well-chosen wine list that reflects our attention to detail.
Occupying the ground floor of an original foundry building, the restaurant, which is in walking distance from both the Old and Young Vic, seats up to 50 diners and has a buzzy bar.
The venison Wellington was outstanding and the rabbit pappardella was also delicious.
Always great. Keep it up!
In London for work and wanted a good, casual spot for dinner alone. The bar area is really cozy, but they don't serve food. The ambiance in the dining room was exactly what I needed after a long day! I suggest a reservation, but I made mine same day. Service was great! Nice selection of wines and cocktails, and food is on point. The Scotch Egg was perfectly done, the cauliflower Mac and cheese was so rich and creamy! The venison Wellington was fantastic - really rich but cooked exactly right, tender, and the truffle potatoes served with it really made the dish. I couldn't finish, and didn't even have room for dessert! All in with a glass of wine it was 57£. Already recommended to a friend!
A must eat restaurant
We are from Las Vegas and love food and wine. Talked with the owner who is danstaic
5 star service and excellent food. Definitely recommend this gem of a restaurant. The welcome was warm and friendly and is the perfect place for friends/family dinner as well as couples we’ll be back!
Efficient and discreet service, tasty and beautifully presented food and quiet enough that we could have a conversation. Excellent value.
Wooden seating uncomfortable for any length of time.
Superb food and atmosphere, with delightful and helpful staff.
Always great food and service at The Laughing Gravy, the roasts are particularly delicious .
We were a little disappointed at the dessert menu this visit though as they were very busy looking with overly complicated combinations. Nothing to spoil our lunch as we were very full and satisfied anyway.
Good food short menu
This is a place to be
Tastiest sunday roast lunch served in a superb rich and delicious gravy so definitely lives up to its name cos you leave smiling and the wine offering is also excellent. The food here tastes as good as it looks as the presentation of the food on the plate is also exquisite. Our dessert of all things banana and caramel; ice cream, fruit, cheesecake and mousse was just sublime. The whole experience is delivered by knowledge, friendly and efficient staff. We've been dining here, albeit not regularly, over a period of 10 years and it never disappoints, in fact if it's possible it just gets better and better.
As always the food was great, the service relaxed and friendly: LG is the restaurant I visit most often when I'm in London.
Wow the food at this restaurant is truly wonderful. The venison wellington is particularly exquisite.
The staff are really friendly and fun - lovely chats with Jason and Dimmi.
Heartily recommend this fantastic restaurant.
Excellent meal! We went for my fiance's birthday while on vacation and it was perfect! Delicious food and great service. I highly recommend!
Good food, friendly service, relaxed atmosphere
Great meals. We splendide a nice moment at this restaurant. It is a pity they have no children’s menu or children’s dish
Great place for lunch.... lovely and helpful staff, and delicious food. Quite pricey, but we did have exceptionally good dishes. Highly recommend.
Incredible food - rabbit ragout was amazing
Entspanntes Ambiente in einem gemütlichen Restaurant. Super Essen von hohem Standard in angenehmer Atmosphäre mit aufmerksamen Service. Wärmstens zu empfehlen!
We enjoyed a lovely meal at The Laughing Gravy. The food was delicious and the setting was nice - it felt local and intimate. The service was great too. Would definitely recommend for a bit of a treat in Southwark.
Lovely food and a nice venue with a great atmosphere.
The food was outstanding and the environment was lovely
The restaurant strikes a perfect balance of friendliness and professionalism. The ambience is informal, the food delicious and well presented, and the cocktails particularly good. I strongly recommend the Sloe Gin Fizz.
A very nice experience before a play at the Old Vic. We had a nice memory from a first dinner at the laughing gravy a long time ago and weren’t disappointed.
A little expensive but the food was excellent!! We enjoyed the restaurant an would return.
Beautiful food, pleasant staff, they even remembered it was my birthday and gave me a free pudding on a plate with Happy Birthday written on it.
Walked past this place loads but glad I finally gave it a try. Quite eclectic menu food beautifully cooked and the white chocolate ice cream with Patron XO liqueur is particularly recommended. Service attentive but unobtrusive. Alround great dinner.
Food smelt amazing and I wasn't disappointed when mine arrived. Would go back.
Delicious main. My desert still had plastic wrapping stuck to it, a bit off putting.
Another wonderful lunch here. Great place for a business lunch or leisure lunch! Food is really good and the service flawless. Thanks
This was a real find-excellent food and very comfortable surroundings. would definitely return
Good food and bold flavours. Would visit again. Tables well spaced so you don't feel crowded.
We had a lovely dinner for 5, menu was interesting and very tasty and good wines. The service was friendly and attentive and my colleagues all loved it. We will be back.
One of the best Sunday roasts in London. Highly recommend
First time at the Laughing Gravy, we had the Sunday Roast, food was excellent and plentiful, service was prompt, staff friendly and efficient, definitely want to return to try more from the menu.
The food is really good. Nicely laid out plates. They charge a very high Tip (optional) £30 on a table of 4 persons.
Always a great venue with superb food and wine, and very pleasant service. A little surprisingly, the menu rarely changes and the prices are becoming a little steep for the location. Nevertheless, still a firm favourite.
Great wine list, and interesting menu, but food wasn't as good as I'd remembered from previous visits, and service was a little hit and miss.
Our second visit - and we will come back again :) Lovely food, good selection of wine and great service !
