We came along to an evening of Alexis Soyer at the Distillery two weeks ago for a private dinner event and had the most wonderful time.

The Host was enthusiastic and well prepared with the history of Alexis Soyer's journey to becoming the first celebrity chef. The food and alcohol parings had been well thought and were not only delicious but exciting and imaginative.

The dining room we were seated in was really smart and the staff could not have been more accommodating and welcoming.

Really good value for money and I would highly recommend to anyone who fancies something a bit different for an evening out in West London.

I found the history really interesting and loved the idea of themed food and drink to match the topic.

Many thanks for having us.

A perfect experience with amazing drinks, perfectly poured. Our group of 8 had high expectations and boy were they met with polite, smiley staff and delicious food.

The manager gave us a little tour around which was really interesting. We will definitely be back to make our own Gin or the private dining.....maybe both :-)

We will be back soon.

We went for a late lunch and had their own brand gin with Fever-Tree, they were well made and delicious. The food was well thought out and executed with the Pinchos and Morcilla being outstanding and the Cecina nearly as good as Iberico. However the Pan Catalan and Boquerones were disappointing and there were quite a few items missing from the menu (maybe a sign of success). The staff and service were faultless and the ambience light and fun.

This was a fantastic evening food drinks and stories from 5 centuries.
Just 16 people, great atmosphere and fun evening. Food and drink was interesting and different and very very enjoyable as was the story telling. Would definitely recommend and I would like to go to one of the other themes

Visited here for friends for a cocktail - extremely busy which is always a good sign but why is there the need to drown everyone out so they have to shout blasting out loud music at 3.00 pm on a Saturday afternoon! It was so loud we decided not to stay for a 2nd cocktail as we had originally planned as we were not enjoying shouting at each other!

The cocktails we had were absolutely delicious. Just a shame about the loud music. Don't get me wrong, I love loud music in the appropriate setting - I'm a keen concert goer - but having a cocktail in a beautiful bar should not be overshadowed by loud music!
