After seeing Beef Wellington cooked on a TV show, I'd had a craving for it. So I did a Google search for places in London that served it. I came across an article on a website called Food Edited, where the Riding House Cafe Beef Wellington came recommended, so we decided to try it. We arrived a little early, and... More

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. We had a great breakfast with the most amazing vegan smoothie. Definitely can recommend the place.

Been a few times now, and absolutely loved it a couple of times so always wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt but have since had 3 bad experiences (hard, cold poached eggs and gritty salad) and this week just the worst service possible! Shouty waitress, drinks arrived after mains (which took us half an hour to be... More

I have a love/hate relationship with Riding House Cafe. I have been coming or going there for years. I live in the West End and if I’m thinking Fitzrovia for a destination it would be first on my list for breakfast, morning coffee, late afternoon or late evening cocktails or dinner. I like the food style, I like the décor... More

hi Barbara, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on Riding House Cafe - there are some very good points you have touched on. The staff do come and go as it happens in hospitality but we always try to pass on the knowledge of familiar faces onto the next 'generations'. It looks like it is... More

I was really looking forward to trying this place out as I'm always on the lookout for a great brunch place; however the experience was relatively average. The place is really nice inside and we had a great table at the back on the sofas right in the window- perfect for watching the world go by. The staff were very... More

I came with a friend for brunch during peak hours - we couldn't book a table in advance but we could get seated straight away so it wasn't an issue. Service was great - not too pushy but once we were ready, we could order quickly and got served not shortly after. I opted for the pancakes and they were... More

A slight walk off the beaten track but worth the visit. The food was very good and I ordered the Beef Wellington which was excellent. Probably the most expensive thing on the menu at £24 but worth it. The kids enjoyed the place as the waiter was very kid friendly and we enjoyed the evening. Nice buzz in the place... More

Came highly recommended from friends that regularly visit. Had brunch here and was very average quality food. Great setting but food is not great and service is not better either. I ordered the full English breakfast and the portion size was quite small. What's more, I asked the server for some tomato ketchup and received a small cup of ketchup.... More

Wanted a quick dining with my pregnant wife! Ordered a glass of prosecco and alcohol free smoothie for my wife. Burger and MR rib eye to carry on and Cartlidge Brown Pinot Noir to have w/ mains. Luckily i had most of the wine. And the amasing rib eye w/ the pi.noir is a must. Also swap the chips to... More

We visited Riding House Cafe for breakfast during our short stay in London. We had great service, tasty food and yummy coffee in a lovely setting. What more could you ask for?
