The Warwick is a pub that does fantastic restaurant/pub dining. It's always a hit with locals and tourists together. The chef knows how to do a steak the way you want it and I recommend the Warwick for a good steak and chips. I've also been there for a Sunday lunch and again it's really good food. The staff are really friendly and know the difference between a couple out on a date or a couple just out for a boozy evening, they are really good at reading a table. It's also in a great location close to Victoria Station/Pimlico so it's worth booking a table to guarantee a place in the bar area where you can enjoy some great background music while you chat or dine.

Food lacked flavour. Little to no seasoning was added. The quality of the ingredients wasn't great either. The ambience of the restaurant was nice and service was good which was the only passable element.

They were out of quite a bit of things and the substitutions that they provided were truly disgusting. You can’t necessarily help being out of ingredients, but it’s still their responsibility to make sure the value stays the same.

Our meal was delicious (Fish and chips and pork belly). We sat upstairs in the dining room, nice chilled music, candles lit, nice little succulents on the tables, the atmosphere was just perfect for us. Our waitress was attentive and looked after us beautifully even though it was quite busy. We would definitely be back!

The ribeye was full of gristle, and overall the cost was more restaurant than pub. Eating in a pub, I don't expect to get a service charge added, especially not on a pint.

It was distinctly average food. 3 of us ordered the crab pasta. 2 got their food at the same time as the other 2 who ordered something else. The 3rd pasta order came 10-15mins later. And was not really worth the wait. It was ok but not delicious. The upstairs eating area is totally soulless. The waitress was v helpful. I would recommend for location but probably for a drink and wouldn't be fussed about food.

Arrived and were welcomed by staff, we had booked a table upstairs but when taken up the dining room was empty and freezing cold. The staff were more than happy to move us back downstairs so we could eat in the bar area.
The pub has a good atmosphere and the staff are friendly. The food in my opinion is very average. I had a steak with about 4 tiny slices of potatoes and green beans, my friend had pork belly, mash and some freezing cold kale that we sent back for them to cook.
I would definitely recommend the pub for a drink but perhaps go somewhere else to eat.

We booked an early dinner on a monday at The Warwick Pimlico and it was very quiet when we arrived. As you would expect on a monday at 5:30. When we left a few hours later the place had almost filled up and the atmosphere was lovely.
The food was nice. Pretty small menu of basic pub dishes, but they were tasty and well-prepared. The real winner is the 5£ cocktails though! For someone on a budget it is a very luxurious feeling to have a pre-dinner cocktail, and something I can not often afford, but at that price we went for it, and it was great.

Noisy, we were assigned a table near the door (so we felt the cold coming inside every time someone came in or went out), staff were not friendly and we were offered the bill as soon as they decided that we finished our meal.

I booked the Warwick last minute on Thursday for dinner with my boyfriend, as he had eaten there before and said the food was good. The pub was really noisy and crowded downstairs, but the period dining room upstairs had a lovely relaxed, calm atmosphere. We were greeted with a friendly smile by the waitress, so we sat down looking forward to a nice meal: I ordered ribeye steak with triple cooked chips, and my boyfriend ordered the venison pie. Unfortunately the food was terrible - the steak was well cooked but fairly tasteless (thankfully the
garlic butter had loads of flavour!), and the venison in the pie was inedible. We sent the pie back, querying whether it was actually venison, and the waitress was great - she apologised profusely, offered another meal free of charge and came back to us immediately to say it was definitely venison and the owner got it fresh from source. Perhaps it was just a bad batch of meat, as my boyfriend had the sirloin steak which wasn't great either. Overall a disappointing meal, saved only by the friendly, helpful service.

The website described it as a gastropub. It is far from it. A very poor and basic menu.

One choice, gnocchi, was an extremely small portion - kindly the waiter only charges us half when we pointed this out. Other meals were fine.

Downstairs ambience was poor - just a basic pub frequented by locals - and the dining room not much better.

We had a lovely meal at The Warwick. I booked it last minute as I saw they were dog friendly and I had my puppy, Ziggy, with me. The tables were nicely spaced out and the music was good and at the right volume where you can still hold a conversation. The staff were very accommodating of Ziggy and brought him a bowl of water. They also offered a table service instead of going to the bar which was very helpful. Staff were attentive but not too much and the food was lovely too; It all felt very homemade and tasted delicious. I will definitely be back with Ziggy soon.

Dover Sole was absolutely fabulous. Good selection of wines. The only downside was it was far too loud, could do with a separate dining area. Staff were also a little slow, but it was quite busy so benefit of the doubt!
Definitely on the upper end of pub food.

Good find, friendly and relaxed staff/vibe, not too busy but recommend booking ahead for a table as seating limited (due to not being crammed in). Restaurant quieter than the bar area, we preferred to eat down in the bar for ambience.

As an out of towner, London can be intimidating when you are booking a table for my family and a foreign business colleague's family who were meeting for the first time! I am so glad I chose The Warwick, it was relaxed despite being busy downstairs and the food was not only excellent, was really good value for money. We had an excellent time, thank you to everyone there. We will be back!

Went to the Warwick to show some friends from out of town what pub cuisine was like and it did not disappoint.

We shared a Beef Tartare with truffle and quail egg before having mains of roasted lamb leg, fish and chips, a Venison and Ale Pie and a Bavette Steak.

The food itself was of a good standard and well portioned in general, well flavoured however it could have been better with a few tweaks and improvements. The starter was probably the highlight, good sized dish for sharing between 2 (we had 4 but weren't particularly hungry) or even for a hungry 1! The menu had apparently recently changed to our disappointment with yorkshire pudding, duck fat roast potatoes and other sides no longer being served.

The mains choice also lacked variety with no pork option (no crackling!). We originally had one order of the Rabbit but this was sold out after the waitress checked with the kitchen. An asparagus special starter was also unavailable leading to the second disappointment in terms of ordering.

We finished our meal by sharing a sticky toffee pudding which again was satisfactory, filling and tasted great, but just lacked anything that would have made it particularly memorable. The staff were wonderful throughout although there was a lighting issue which meant the lights were adjusted every 10 - 15 minutes proving a little distracting.

Great place to chat, catch up and get some grub, not really for occasions where food is the centrepiece or focus of your visit.

Four of us.
Poor wine availability. Good (year) wines on the menu were not available. Tried to ask for same price!
Food was normal pub food. Nothing gastro at sll. Sirloin steak was barely edible. Cod was extremely salty. Will never go back.

Wonderful pub with great food. We sat in the pub area, which was slightly loud, but we were still able to hold a conversation. Federica was our server and she was great. Enjoyed her conversation and recommendations. I had the rarebit and wife had the chicken confit. Both were outstanding. When we are back in London, we will make this a priority to visit.
