We went to Riding House for a traditional American Thanksgiving feast and it certainly delivered! The food was so delicious and really made me feel home away from home.

However, the table they sat us at was way too small, and the plates literally didn't fit on the table which made the dining experience quite uncomfortable actually. We were there for a late dinner (starting at 9pm) and it was very loud for the first hour or so until people started to leave (like so loud you couldn't hear the person next to you).

Service was a little all over the place, and we felt a bit ignored by our waiter (although in the end he agreed to let us take away our leftovers since there was so much food, even though this was against the restaurants COVID policies?)

Hi Hanne, Thank you so much for leaving such detailed feedback. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience - I believe I know which table you were on and I completely agree, that was an oversight from us and one we have since learned from. I'm also sorry to hear your service wasn't as attentive as it should have been, I will be working hard with the team to ensure this doesn't happen again. Finally I would like to reassure you that we have no COVID policy regarding takeaway food so I will also be briefing the team on this as we have absolutely no issue with guests taking their leftovers away. I do hope this clears some things up and if you plan to drop by again soon please feel free to email me on ben@ridinghouse.cafe and I will make sure you are well looked after. Many thanks, Ben

We had a thanksgiving meal here, which overall was a delicious meal in a lovely setting. It was our first time trying a thanksgiving meal and it was everything we had been hoping for- the classics, particularly the turkey, were cooked brilliantly and it was a lovely event to share together.

Having said this, we had a major issue with the timings of this meal, that sadly affected out experience quite a bit. We were told numerous times in the run up to the reservation and upon arrival that we had the table for 1 hour 30 minutes. This would maybe be just about enough time, however for such a big meal, it ended up feeling very rushed. The mains were served within 15 minutes of sitting down and the desserts were brought to our table without being asked if we were ready for them, about 10 minutes after our mains had been cleared.

While I completely understand that the restaurant would like to accommodate as many people as possible, when you do this to such a degree and have so many different sittings that you have to cut short people's meals and experiences, it just doesn't seem worth it. The meal was very pricey which is ok as we were aware of this beforehand. However for the prices paid, it only seems fair that you let people enjoy it at their own pace. I think next year and maybe for other holidays in the future, they should prioritise each booking individually and give at least 2 hours for people to have their meal- and check before bringing out food. Thanksgiving, Christmas etc are events as well as meals and while the meal was fantastic, the event was slightly ruined by not having enough time to enjoy it.

Perfect place to spend Thanksgiving for expats in London. Only thing to be aware of is the short booking times. Food is excellent, quick, and good drinks. I would love if they'd allow longer bookings even with a caveat, as Thanksgiving is traditionally a long, slow meal concentrated around conversation and togetherness. Otherwise it just feels like any other dinner out. Overall I still very much recommend it, as the food was delicious, and they left nothing out.

I had scrambled eggs which was quite nice, coffee however (latte) was undrinkable. Terrible beans, it seems like the temperature on the espresso machine were wrongly adjusted, as the coffee was very bitter and the milk was frothed very badly.
The service however was nice and thankfully there wasn’t loud music playing.

The pancakes were amazing, the best I have ever eaten, and I’ve eaten a lot! Also, the portion size was massive- great value for money. In terms of social distancing, I had booked for 2 people but they gave us a large table, enough for 4 and I felt safe as we were sat a good distance away from the other diners. The service was prompt & efficient. Despite the restaurant being very busy we never felt rushed. I can’t wait to go back again!

Generally, dinner was a good experience as it is a lovely setting and not too noisy. However the service was really bad - it took a long time to get someone’s attention to order drinks and whilst the beer eventually arrived, the wine didn’t come until after the food. To keep it simple we ordered the express menu for 6 and whilst some of the dishes were good (the prawn skewers, the macaroni truffle cheese) others were really disappointing (the soggy brocoli skewers, boring bread rolls and very tasteless quinoa salad). The steak was very good however. We ordered a bottle of red wine and after a long wait were given a bottle of white. I resent the fact that service was automatically added but didn’t want to complain as I didn’t want to put a dampener on the evening.

I didn’t enjoy it as much as I have done in the past, our server could have been more attentive – eg we had to wait a very long time to have our water glasses refilled - and I asked him if I could have a cushion at my back (I was on a couch seat) and he never came back to let me know whether or not that was possible. Those bench seats can be quite uncomfortable, some people had cushions. I was sitting slightly too far from my companion and couldn’t hear her so easily so I had to lean forward and comfortably.
Some of the food was amazing but the falafel dish my friend had was tasty but very dry, the ingredients weren’t balance as well as they could’ve been. The kale with garlic and chilli had so much garlic, it was heavy handed seasoning and left me feeling garlic poisoned all day!
The artichoke dip was delicious and the bread was very nice, the truffle macaroni cheese was lovely.

The food was delightful, however our experience was a little dampened by the first waiter that approached us. There were no pleasantries, we were just informed that we had exactly 5-7 minutes before the kitchen stopped taking order. We hadn’t even had a chance to look at the menu, let alone order a drink. We also didn’t know that the kitchen closed at that time, a little notice might have been helpful.

There was a lot of hand waving and sighing from the waiter. He was actually quite rude, we felt as though we were holding his time up.

On top of this, we asked if we could have vegetarian gravy for the vegetarian roast (why there was no gravy with the roast in the first place is beyond me). We were offered beef gravy, for the vegetarian roast. Beef! For a vegetarian! That is all I have to say.
