Love this place, always busy so you need to book. Great food and service. Such a good location, just north of Oxford Street but not touristy at all - love it!

Terrible Restaurant/Bar. Went here for a 11.00am Bunch with customers. Awful front of house, terrible service, cold (hot) food. Impossible to get any service when looking for salt for the table, or a refill on the coffee. Staff seem to have a total knack for looking straight through customers and ignoring them. A 45 min meal taking 1 hour 20... More

We called into the Riding House Cafe as it had been recommended by a friend. It's an incredibly quirky bar with old school fixtures. Bar staff were really polite and attentive. Lots of drinks to chose from and very reasonably priced for central London. Would have stayed longer but night ruined by the loudmouths on the seats beside us. They... More

hi there, Lovely review! - thank you for taking the time to write it. I'm sorry to hear you had to cut your visit because of loud guests in the bar - I guess we are a place that serves alcohol but certain volume can be unpleasant. Please accept my apologies - it's something we shall look into. Thank you... More

The food was mediocre. My lobster lasagne was a tiny dish of lobster-flavoured bechamel sauce topped with a single lobster claw. My friends' roast beef was a slab of uninspiring meat with desultory trimmings. The vegetable smoothie "cocktails" were undrinkable (to be fair, the restaurant removed them from our bill after we sent them back). Generally unimpressive.

We tried Avocado Benedict and Buttermilk Pancakes, both of them were really good! However if you like pancakes your choices are limited as they are only serving pancakes with berries, maple syrup and vanilla. If you like egg benedict and avocado, you should definitely try their Avocado Benedict and for cheese lovers I would recommend to add extra feta as... More

The breakfast here is great if you like pancakes, french toast, eggs, and full English. The place is decent with ample space, though the bathroom stall has a glass window that you can see the outline of whoever is in there and what they are doing and that's weird. But overall, the place has excellent breakfast food.

We visited the place with a friend on a weekday for breakfast at around 10:00am. Though the place was almost full we were seated without a reservation. Personnel were all kind. I had eggs Benedict and a french toast with maple syrup and clotted cream- all very delicious!!! Eggs were only slightly colder than i like. My friend had scrambled... More

I stopped here for brunch, the restaurant is really central, just a short walk from Oxford Street. The breakfast here is amazing, not only did it taste delicious, but it was well presented and service was great. The cafe itself is very cool, and a great place to meet and dine with friends. It's a little pricy, but it is... More
