Delicious food - great service and nice and warm!
The food is really good. Not sure it’s great value for money but it was good nonetheless. It’s not far from Oxford Street and easy to get to.
Amazing fluffy American pancakes. Can’t wait to go back to have them again!
Absolutely lovely and attentive staff. Great spot for outdoor drinks with the heaters. Highly recommend. Thanks G!
Lovely food and top quality service. Slightly on the expensive side but it is a central London location.
We booked a table outside and was pleasantly surprised with the good service. There's enough space and heaters to stay warm. I will be coming again when restaurants are fully open again.
Pancakes were out of this world! Definitely would come again!
Never visited before but booked it because it looked nice and had outside space. The menu was really extensive and diverse, the food was delicious and the service was great. Our waiter even apologised at the end of our 90 minute reservation because there was another booking, obviously this is in no way his fault or the fault of the restaurant it is just how things are at the moment but I thought that was really sweet. Would definitely go again!
Brunch with friends ... chilly, wet and windy day but the outdoor heater kept us warm. Great service and food was delicious!
We went for a breakfast on a rainy Saturday morning. The sitting area outside was well covered and heated and the staff was friendly and attentive. The food was nice and the quantity was just right.
Lovely food and service and most tables had heaters so made eating outside bc of Covid wok but I was not aware on the time restriction of 2 hours until I got there
Really friendly staff and great to be back c
Lovely food, brilliant heaters and strong menu (definitely get the donuts for desert!) we were sat at a table round the corner and a little out of sight, so service was a little bit slower, but lovely team, so can't fault the service itself.
A nice meal where we were looked after by a pleasant team. The only downside was being given a warning every ten minutes on how much longer we had the table for; it really felt like we were being hurried out.
It was so cold as we were outside due to social distancing, no fault of the restaurant of course but perhaps if they had blankets to hand out that would have really helped.
But our waiter was lovely and seated us under a warmer heater after she saw that we were freezing.
The food was delicious and the service was really nice. They even made me a hot toddy because I was freezing! Was a lovely experience.
Service was great. We had a very powerful heater next to our table so even though it was about 5 degrees outside at least the top half of us wasn't totally baltic! Starters were great, but the mains were pretty average and quite expensive. We were surprised to be charged £15 for a martini (given all the cocktails on there were around £10).
Alessandro was a great waiter and the food was excellent. A regular venue for breakfast and one of the best around.
Lovely and attentive service and cute set up outside - not to mention the food was so yummy!
Our waiter Alessandro was great. He even brought us a candle to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. We were happy with the food as well.
Only thing we were not happy with is that reservations are only for 1.5 hour. 10 minutes to the end of our reservation, we were brought the bill and reminded that the reservation was about to be ending. I think the management should change their strategy in this sense.
If it was possible to have a longer reservation, I would definitely go there again
My husband and I had a very nice experience in RHC for a bank holiday brunch. We showed up ten mins early but were still offered our table, didn’t have to wait. Our drinks and food order was taken promptly and with a smile by Ana and everything was served in good time with food and drinks arriving hot. Very tasty meal, especially the pancakes were outstanding
One of my favourite brunch places in London! Just wish our time slot had been longer!
Food was poor and very overpriced for the quality. Had the full English - sausages and black pudding felt like they had been cooked the day before and reheated, unbelievably dry. Not sure Lincolnshire will be happy with you claiming those are Lincolnshire sausages! Toast was what looked to be a thin slice of the cheapest white bread available. Really quite poor, especially for the price (c.£14).
Service was quite good in the main when serving drinks/food, but had staff members circling the table far too quickly. Cleared plates while one diner was still eating (unacceptable in my opinion), and clearly in a rush to get us out. I understand restaurants need a lot of covers having been closed for months, but service like this is a way to lose business.
Delicious food, charming waiters and lovely atmosphere
Food was really good and service was good! Would defintely go back

Lovely meal and attentive service in the outside gazebo. Excellent service and the food was really tasty - I had the vegan truffled portobello & sweet potato wellington with porcini cream with crispy new potatoes and it was seriously delicious. Grateful to be eating out again!

Unbelieveable food and fantastic waiting staff! One of my favourite spots in London!
Thanks for the wonderful comments!!! See you on your next visit!
Lovely food, staff were great - did have to rush a little to keep to the 2h slot but totally understand this is due to COVID and trying to fit people in! The canopies outside were great and heater MUCH appreciated.
Thanks for the great rating and lovely review Leonora, we look forward to seeing you again soon! Fiona
One of the better places to eat with some atmosphere on these days when it is eating outside only.
Thanks HuwR! Thanks for the positive feedback! We have tried our best given the circumstances!
Servers attentive, seated quickly. A bit rushed due to hour and half time slots - would recommend restaurant creates 2 hour time slots as a minimum for eating. Food generally good, mac & cheese a little watery. Heaters in terrace a nice feature. Would come back.
Hi Catherine, Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you felt a little rushed. The demand recently had been huge. We do offer the 2 hours on the evening bookings, but will take into mind going forward. Next time we will make sure you have plenty of time on your visit Nick
Great food and cosy outside tables with heaters even in the morning when it’s sunny
Thank you for the kind words! Hopefully we will see you again soon! Nick
