Selected Berners Tavern to celebrate my partners 25th birthday, it was perfect, the staff were always on top of everything, could not do enough for us, the food was amazing, the atmosphere was fantastic, even brought my partner a little birthday cake with the dessert which she loved. Would definitely come back again.

No air conditioning in restaurant, was very uncomfortable.
No a la carte menu for Sunday lunch, effectively we had just a Sunday roast.

Wonderful food and attentive servers. Bar man made me a rum cocktail by request which was very tasty and something I had not tried before. Sommelier was happy to answer our questions and gave a lovely wine recommendation. If you order the beef to share for your main do not get the house salad to start as you get that salad with the beef. Flaming baked Alaska was a show stopper.

We enjoyed an excellent evening at Berners Tavern last Saturday - well prepared and presented food, attentive service and a very good selection of drinks (including the champagne trolley!). Nice, buzzy atmosphere so an enjoyable time all round!

The waiter was horrendous, kept pushing and pushing us all evening to hurry up. Brought everything out in a rush, like we were on a time slot and snarled at us for not ordering starters

Great decor and in turn ambience.
Excellent service. If anything too eager at times to please.
Food tasty and well presented. However I would question value for money. Hard to justify costs of starters and deserts in particular.
It seems to be a Covid disease in hospitality in general. Inflate prices to recoup losses. Not clever. Customers will walk with their feet. Come autumn the mid week and lunchtime deals will be back as we all settle into our normal.
Customers remember. Just like we remember those who have misled us in the pandemic. Keep the great service and add value to what you offer Berners please and we shall be back again.....and again.

A sharing steak was offered in lieu of the cote de beouf. This was a “chateubriand” which in reality appeared to be a normal steak off their menu. Poor form.

Beautiful dining room with vibrant atmosphere, food and staff. Honestly couldn’t fault anything - beautiful ribeye, koffman fries outstanding, beef blade mac and cheese so moreish and the tomato and buratta salad seasoned so well.

Always too expensive but a wonderful evening. The team serving was excellent, especially Salvadore. Mac and cheese probably too rich for my son’s liking, pork pie, steaks and pork chop all great. Too good not to keep going back!

Really lovely evening at Berners Tavern! The food was relatively simple (eg fillet steak and mac n’ cheese) but was delicious and the ambience in that beautiful dining room was excellent. Sommelier was v knowledgeable and we had some great wine (although he tried to up-sell a bit too much). In general highly recommended.

Great food and cocktails! Nice vibe for Friday night dinner and drinks! Service was a bit pushy even though we had 2 hours for our table booking, however great experience overall.
