We went on a Friday night without a booking. It was really busy and often restaurants like that treat you as if you're so lucky to be let in at the last minute - but the staff were hugely welcoming and friendly. The service was very quick and professional but never rushed. I had a great salad as a main... More

Nice venue, food portions are small and expensive, nothing to write home about. Service is very good.

There were 14 of us meeting up from various parts of the country(s) and it was great to have our own room for 4 hours. The set brunch menu had a good range of dishes and the food was tasty. We were well looked after by the friendly waitress. Definitely recommend.

Came in for breakfast, sat at the bar as I was on my own, I do like being able to watch a kitchen work. I was sat, my order taken and food arrived within 10 minutes so can't fault the speed of service, the food and drink were lovely. The style and decor is very hip and stylish clearly been... More

A useful place for meeting friends - central London, some large-ish areas and a nice decor. Definitely a good choice for visiting friends, very much that London feel. Brunch was fine - we both had the french toast and it was nice enough for the price. I'm a big brunch fan and I found a few of the other dishes... More

Introduced to this casual English restaurant with a healthy twist at The Riding House Café. Tried their Cheese Macaroni, Chorizo Potato with crispy kale, Prawn Mixed Salad and Duck Rillette – awesome homeliness with little touches of surprise – toasted fried shallots on top of the macaroni, twin soft yolk eggs in the chorizo potatoes... and perfectly complimented with sugar-light...

Visited the restaurant for a special birthday. Service was good but food was very poor and over priced! Would not recommend.

This place has good styling and relaxed decor. Breakfast menu looks good. Lobster benedict was a disappointment as the lobster was just a paste with tomato. Buttermilk pancakes were great. Juices were interesting but possibly a bit too trendy. Service a bit lacking. Pretty good, but there are better places in town.

Thank you for coming in. Glad to hear we got some things right but sad to hear that we didn't meet your expectations on the food. Lobster benedict is a big seller so will will ensure that we monitor it closely. We hope to get another chance. Best More

First visit with my Cousin and arrived first to a nice welcome and a lovely young man took my coat and showed me to our table and water was bought which was a lovely welcome. A very buzzy noisy place at 1.30ish full of 20/30 something young people. When my cousin arrived we were shown menus and had some difficulty... More
