Service was excellent! Food was delicious!
Absolutely delicious food. Beautiful restaurant. The waitress was lovely and the staff in general really nice. The dishes themselves were fairly priced for the quality and size. The bill was pushed up by the expensive drinks, which cost more than the food and I ordered the 'cheapest' wine. But other than that, it was a beautiful meal in a beautiful space and I look forward to going again.
Excellent food and service with a lovely environment
Delicious mushrooms and poached egg ! Very friendly service though a little slow.
I used to be a huge fan of this place but sadly I don't think I'll be back. We visited on Sunday and the main issue is that they had ran out of both roast chicken and roast beef by 2.30pm. This seems like really bad planning, as surely it could be predicted that these dishes would prove popular at Sunday lunchtime, and it's not like it was late in the day. I then had to choose something else and when I asked if a certain dish could have scrambled eggs instead of baked eggs I was told a flat out "no". To be honest I've not been in a situation before where the server does not even offer to check with the kitchen staff. I was additionally surprised seeing as the server had just returned to tell me my original order of a roast was not possible; in other places they would want to ensure they can sort you out if their menu is limited in other ways. That's without even getting into why on earth a professional kitchen cannot scramble an egg! Still a beautiful restaurant in a great location but it feels like a gamble these days rather than the solid place it used to be where you were always guarantee a good meal and nice service.
Always brilliant service here. It is quite noisy and bustling so if you're looking for somewhere calm, I'd suggest elsewhere. Highlights definitely the food, cocktails and atmosphere.
We went as a family to celebrate my birthday.
We felt quite rushed as we had our table for an hour and a half and were repeatedly told that the table was booked after us. It was very noisy and difficult to hear my family. The food was delicious
Outstanding service and an excellent menu choice made for a delightful Sunday brunch. Staff are attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. Reasonably priced too. We shall be back!
Brilliant food, service and atmosphere
Another fabulous brunch at The Riding House Cafe. A real gem. A delightful respite from the hustle and bustle of busy Oxford Street. Delicious food and reasonably priced too. Looking forward to our next visit
Teapot a little small
Portion size good
Milk not fresh they was served with coffee
Refilling of water glasses great
Would have useful to be told 2 sausages in extra portion
Halloumi very overpriced
The quality of the food just isn’t up to scratch. Visited 6 years ago and hoped time would have changed it for the better. It hadn’t. Pancakes slightly burned, more like sponge cake than pancake. Veggie breakfast had two very small pieces of dry halloumi. Potatoes had a ‘plasticy’ flavour to them. Wilted and tasteless spinach. Tiny portion/half a slice of dry toast. I love brunch but I actually left some of this meal sadly. Similar experience noted by friends. As a Brit, sad to say the UK doesn’t seem to be able to compete on the world stage with breakfasts! Perhaps this place focuses on numbers through the door rather than quality of food.Real shame as ambience and staff great.
Lovely place, friendly staff and tasty food.... will definitely be heading back here.
We had an amazing breakfast for my fiances birthday. The staff were lovely and food was outstanding. As it was my fiances birthday they even brought out pancakes for him with a candle. A lovely touch. We will definitely return!
Reunion with friends
Highly recommend this venue and looking forward to my next visit.
We had a lovely breakfast of buttermilk pancakes with berries. Delicious. Absolutely satisfied. Will definitely return in future.
Pleasant staff and inventive menu! Would thoroughly recommend
Really lovely setting and decor, disappointed with the full English breakfasts we had which was just about warm. Expected more from this establishment.
Food was okay. Nothing special. Preffer american breakfast but the food is ok. Pancakes are too big and thick but taste was ok
The space was hectic, service was poor and the food was a bit disappointing
Great food, service and value I thought but very loud because it was so busy. However I would definately go again. Perfect for an early weekend breakfast
Annual birthday dinner is always a real treat at Riding House. Great food and drinks and always a lovely vibe with friendly helpful staff.
Dad and daughter dinner after separate days in London. Great food - really great food and a fab atmosphere
We enjoyed our food over all but my egg was over cooked. The egg is important.
Lovely environment and food but staff are not quick to check if anything is needed etc. We would’ve definitely had note drinks but couldn’t get attention to ask.
Spacious, able to book a table same day and noise levels that mean you can hear your fellow guests + food you can order and eat within the hour make it an ideal lunchtime spot.
très accueillant et convivial. excellents pancakes.
Juste un bémol : changement de carte de menu entre le début de notre repas et la deuxième commande sans nous avoir prévenu . Donc déception de ne pouvoir commander ce que nous avions choisi de manger au départ (commande étagée pour pouvoir manger chaud...)
Great service and delicious food! One of the best places for pancakes in central London...
Not worth the hype.
Essen war okay, Bedienung etwas neben der Spur. Einfach überbewertet. Für den Preis etwas besseres erwartet.
Good location, friendly and vibrant, with great service and food.
very good for breakfast (the french toast is divine) and brunch.
Great service from when we walked in! Seated ahead of our reservation time at our request, great menu with excellent quality food.
Good service throughout would definitely go back
Very pleasant environment. Slowish service on the Saturday evening I visited. Food rather salty and some portions small but tasty nonetheless. Pick wisely.
Good food and drinks, ok service. Maddening loud (and bad) music in restaurant area.
Great place for brunch with friends or family. The pancakes are delicious and so is the triple smoked bacon. 👌🏻
Great food, service, atmosphere & Fitzroy Twinkles.
Delicious as always, love coming here! Enjoyable experience every time.
I like the place but disappointing that there are no savoury vegan brunch options. I had to order a series of sides (mushrooms, avocado, toast, beans, tomatoes) and they came in little separate plates which was weird.
The food was really good and the staff very friendly ! Was looking for a place to brunch and was not disappointed
