Excellent service good for business meetings and people watching
Food good. Slow but friendly service. No diet non alcoholic drinks and wine is expensive.
I enjoyed the experience a lot and the food was excellent. The staff were a bit uninterested though.
Wonderful place with generous portions.
The berries pancakes were awesome and I am so glad we went there.
I will definitely go back in the future.
Very pleasant staff and delicious food with a twist
Nice but the food is pricey for what is on offer. I came here around 4 year's ago and the standard seems to have dropped off somewhat. Still a nice place to go in a central location.
Easy to book. Food was great. Slight mistake with our order that the staff were very apologetic for and sorted out very quickly.
really great place for Brunch, tasty food, creative dishes.
Food was good but there’s room for improvement in other areas.
This is a lovely restaurant with a good bar. It can be noisy, depending on who is in, but generally it has the vibe of a decent local restaurant, as it's slightly off the beaten track.
I was greeted warmly at the restaurant but unfortunately things went down hill from there. We ordered a cocktail to start which wasn't as tasty as I had hoped. Saffron infused gin with champagne and rhubarb, unfortunately it looked and tasted more like berocca. We wanted to order the whipped feta but that was off the menu on the day we visited. I ordered the chicken and my friends both ordered burgers. Due to Westminster regulations no burgers can be served medium anymore, it has to be medium well or well done. Shame. My chicken was overcooked and a bit dry.
The waiters were functional but certainly not happy.
Overall its not an experience that has inspired me to return so I think I will find an alternative when I am next in the area.
Only one reservation I thought the drinks particularly the wine were overpriced otherwise excellent. Particularly liked menu variety my salad was excellent.
Very priced with unfriendly brisk staff. Went for cocktails for a special birthday and were treated with extreme indifference and met with a huge bill for average drinks.
Very mediocre. Over priced for what you get. Very standard Full English for the cost. There are far better places for brunch.
We booked for a Saturday brunch after some recommendations. The food was really excellent (big portion sizes!) and reasonably priced. The service was a big hectic though and it took a long time to get our bill and pay, even though there was a queue of people waiting for tables. The staff were really nice but seemed rushed, hence four stars.
Classic dishes served in a classy but relaxed restaurant. The place has a nice bustle to it. Full of hip young things. Only let down our waiter making it clear that waiting tables was not his passion in life. Other waiting staff were excellent.
Highly recommended for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Love this place. Every time!
My experience was very poor. I ordered the pancakes with berries and they came to me cold. I told our waitress and she changed them for me and they came back burnt! By this point I was starving and ate what I could but the bitter taste become too much! I told the waitress I couldn’t finish the pancakes due to the bitterness of the burnt pancakes. The manager ended up taking these off the bill as I complained again. I was very disappointed as I heard such great things about this place. I don’t think it’s worth going to. I won’t be going again.
Lovely breakfast, courteous staff, and a great location/vibe. We thoroughly enjoyed it :)
Vegan option wasn't actually vegan. Misleading menu for that reason, quite disappointing.
I'm never impressed every time I come here. Glasses dirty, it's expensive and just not that great. Mac and cheese was good though.
The service was very poor, ham was 80% raw when it was served and waited another 20 minutes for a fully cooked one to come up. Service was just lacked, and understaffed all the time hence waiters and waitresses were stressed out and almost rude all the time.
Always love Riding House. Staff and venue are great. Food is always delicious and the menu changes so you don't get bored!
Good - mains are quite small portions though..... my £15 kedgeree meal looked a little lost in the bowl.
I love the ambience at riding house cafe, but was disappointed in the breakfast as portions were v small and I felt I could make better scrambled eggs. Service was very average and unfriendly.
A lot of space family loved the food and good staff
Service could be better. We were there for brunch for 2 hours and then were denied an item on the menu because it switched to lunch.
Beautiful dining rooms - we sat in the room to the left of the bar around a comfy round table and we’re looked after briliantly by the attentive waiting staff.
The food came in good time and was delicious - a note that you don’t need toast with the chorizo hash though!
Overall, a great place to meet friends for a weekend brunch.
Waitress Anna was amazing, so very friendly and engaging and lovely.
Had a great brunch with my wife and three boys as part of a 50th birthday weekend celebration in London. There was something on the menu for everyone. Great buzz in the restaurant and very attentive and friendly service. Was recommended to me by a good friend and did not disappoint. I will be passing on the recommendation to others.
Lovely atmosphere, fantastic service and the best blood Mary's!
Considering the main food vibe is brunch: avocados, kedgeree etc, nothin we had exceeded what what was on the menu. You ordered eggs on toast... you got eggs on toast. Boring and not even good quality for the price. Asked for hot sauce, got tobasco??!
Victoria Derbyshire was there!
Excellent service and good food. We had the burger and beer for £10 - bargain!
The staff were very friendly and the food was very tasty. However, it was extremely busy (Sunday midday) and we had to wait 50 minutes for our food to arrive. Additionally, we also ordered pancakes but were told after an hour that the batter was not good enough to be served. We were given complementary french toast however which was great!
Advise booking but fantastic place, lovely atmosphere and 1st class food. Staff superb.
Overpriced, and pretty tasteless, uninteresting food
The food was outstanding and perfect for brunch, the waiters were extremely friendly and helpful, would recommend to anyone
Very nice restaurant. Lovely attentive staff and great food.
Great ambiance close to, but just far enough from, the bussle of Oxford St and the other main drags nearby.
On this visit the Smoked Haddock Kedgeree had little flavour and little haddock.
Service and environment were very nice. Would try again in the hope of tastier food.
