They were overwhelmed by the amount of people, but they were very helpful all the time.
Very nice food as well, though the truffle fries were not as nice as usual.
Truffle fries at The Orange are a MUST

The food was good. The waiter was very helpful and attentive despite the restaurant being full. The Orange is little noisy for my taste but we were 7 and quite chatty as well. The table was ready for us when we arrived and the orders were taken quite promptly. A good meal and a nice menu.

We did have quite an early booking (7.30 pm) but it was a bit disappointing to find ourselves the only customers in our section of the dining room for quite some time, especially as it was a Saturday. Also I thought the room had a hint of quite an unpleasant "stale" smell.
We all enjoyed our meal, though for me the leeks & other veg (chicory?) were too tough to eat and did not go very well with the trout (which was good). Monkfish starter & puddings all very good.
We love the Orange for a special occasion or Sunday lunch and hope to return

The orange is a great pub, good service and excellent food. The desserts are exceptional! It was extremely busy with a few large parties so the noise level impacted our evening sadly.

Great location, ambience and nice atmosphere overall. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. We did have a very mixed experience that I hope may be due to the busy Christmas season.
A few of our roasts came out cold and some sides never arrived. Also the wine list is quite on the expensive side, for average quality (based on what we tried). Desserts were excellent.

We had a Christmas lunch for 10 people on Sunday. There was another table of 10 ordering at the same time.

As such, service was patchy (waiter was not able to say which of the steaks orders was cooked rare, for example) and waited long time for drinks and food orders to be taken.

The food was good but not of the standard expected from previous visits to the Orange (eg venison was gristley/chewy).

Would put this down to the restaurant being busy with lots of orders.

There's a always a great atmosphere at the Orange and the food is pretty good too - menu fairly limited if you are vegetarian but to be fair I didn't ask if there was a separate one. Great wines by the glass including a Sancerre!

We went here for a celebration after reading many positive reviews and claims.

Nothing was terrible about this place... but it was just fairly average, even for a Pub.

Whilst the general atmosphere was OK, the service was a bit strange, not terrible, just lacklustre. No suggestions, help, advice, just “Are you ready? OK I’ll come back, Now did you decide? Good.” Sort of attitude.

The food also, wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great and for the price paid, a borderline rip off... If i’d paid £12 a plate at my local pub, my review would have been different, but this was expensive.

The highlight however would be the cocktails and coffee which were both exceptional, better than even some fine dining establishments.

If you’re not price sensitive and just want to eat a meal and go, then you won’t be disappointed. However if you want service, an atmosphere and great food. Head somewhere else.

Went for Sunday dinner with my partner and my father. Food was lovely and the gravy was really nice. Sadly no parsnip but the carrot was outstanding. Cozy ambiance with open fire and not too busy. If you are visiting during Christmas the mulled wine is a must; normally not a fan but it was BEAUTIFUL. Staff were really friendly and played along with my dads awful humour.

Will definitely be returning.

We have loved this place previously however the service this time wasn't up to scratch - we had go up to the waitress a number of times to get her attention. Breakfast also took over 30 minutes to arrive, and when it did the poached eggs were overcooked.

We discovered The Orange by way of a review in the i newspaper. As it is on the way from Victoria to the Cadogan Hall. It is perfect for a pre-concert meal and an after concert drink. You can walk or catch one of the three buses that pass by. The Orange has a a busy and well stocked bar, including craft beers. The menu is limited but varied and caters for all tastes. The food is excellent, especially the Sunday lunch. Not cheap, but worth it. Service quietly efficient and on our last visit we were given complimentary coffees due to us having to wait for our mains course. We had not complained, they just recognised that there had been a delay and acted accordingly. We would recommend The Orange to every discerning diner who enjoys a pub with a dedicated dining facility.

We have been to The Orange in the past and enjoyed it which is why we decided to go back for lunch with friends but unfortunately this experience was not as positive. In summary, for the prices charged, the portions are small and the service is poor. We were khaki from to chase side dishes 10 minutes after the main had been served, drinks didn’t arrive and had to be chased and coffee was served cold. For £65 per head (and 2 people out of 6 weren’t drinking alcohol) I would expect much better. We won’t be returning I’m afraid.

I had never been to The Orange before, I looked up “best Sunday roast” on the internet ... i was not disappointed! We had chilli squid for starters ... immediately regretted not ordering an extra portion! The sirloin beef was excellent, beautifully cooked as were the ample portions of roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. I like the way the gravy came in a jug so as not to “drown” the food. One word of advice ... leave room for desert! They are amazing! Definitely going back!!!

The food was a bit up and down. Goat stew was tough, the steak in the open sandwich was disappointingly thinly sliced in contrast with the very thick bread. Fish mousse with cucumber foam was great, the cod was delicious.

good location and nice venue. No excessive noise and easy to talk. Food satisfactory; service ok however not inspired. Fairly expensive for what was offered. Better weekend offering might be the Sunday roast lunch which could easily be extended to Saturdays. Would nevertheless say that is a pleasant place to spend time.

First visit for a couple of years and it was a real disappointment . Perhaps I was spoilt the last time I went, and maybe my expectations were too high, but the food was no better than OK [and it had been great previously] and it was no surprise that it was largely empty even on a Friday lunchtime. Perhaps there are new owners?

Sorely understaffed. Had to seek the few waitstaff ourselves to get anything-water, drinks ordered, the full set of appetizers we ordered.dinner itself, the check. Half the Sunday roast menu was off the menu as of 6 pm. Just a service mess so who even knows about the food we were so vexed by the experience. Staff up or close some rooms this is unfair to customers and the few waitstaff you have.

Have been a fan of The Grazing Goat for some time. Thought we would try The Orange for a change. No draught beer in the bar! All very good upstairs but not as sassy, well presented or tasty as The Goat's offerings. Really didn't need windows open, had to keep my coat on! All in all not quite up to the mark we would have expected.
