Went in for lunch as a fairly large group (11) with a mixture of ages and they couldn't do enough to make sure we were well looked after. The food is good with an interesting twist of a few dishes and a lovely decor. Can imagine it's a great party place later in the day but definitely dog and child... More

Took my parents for lunch, weren't given menus so had to get them myself but still expected to pay service charge. I ordered eggs and avocado on toast, 1 small piece of toast, a smearing of avocado and 1 tiny cold overcooked poached egg, very disappointed. Might expect a tiny portion in a cafe but not in a pub like... More

Have never liked this place. They redid the menu last year and the food is decent now, so there's that. Still a weird vibe. The waitstaff are DIRE (I mean like 30min to get a drink refill or the bill) - probably the worst in london. Waitstaff and bar staff are all rude, I think with maybe one exception in... More

We celebrated our engagement in the Regent last weekend and had a great night. The staff were really accommodating and arranged a nice big space for our group. Lots of fun had by all and I'd definitely recommend either for a quiet drink or a group celebration!

Really enjoyed our recent experience on a day in London shopping picking up some early Christmas presents. My partner enjoyed the sports bar, the food was good, and there was a great atmosphere. Our friends needed some extra help as one of them has a disability, the staff were really helpful and attentive.

This pub is a great all rounder. It does great food, the staff are really friendly and the whole place has a great atmosphere. It is especially good for sport, there is a back room with 3 giant projector screens and then two smaller ones in the main bar area. (I would recommend to book a table if you want... More

Went out to dinner here. The staff were very inattentive and really could not be bothered. The experience continued with a tiny, improperly cooked pasta topped off with "roasted" vegetable which was nothing more than a bag of microwaved supermarket vegetables. About the worst restaurant experience I have had all year.

Busy evening with the football on. It was packed but still the 1664 was warm and flat. Not a good start.

Glad to hear it was nice and busy when you visited but it sounds like we didn't manage to get you the perfect pint this time. Do let me know when you are around next so we can treat you to a great one (or two!). Thanks, Jess jessica@livelyhood.co.uk More

We came for dinner on a Sunday which at 9PM, is apparently CRAZY LATE in Balham! haha who knew? The servers said the kitchen was closing soon, so we could still order but they were out of about 2/3rds of the menu. We were grateful they would serve us so we ordered. Should have gone to get a kebab! Fat... More
