    Amazing experience, door host was fantastic and extremely welcoming but I didn’t catch his name. Our server Anna was phenomenal, couldn’t fault her service. Everything was perfect and would 100% recommend the lunch deal to anyone. I will definitely be back

    Lovely food at old compton. Drinks can be a little pricey like £10 for a cocktail. We did the Christmas menu on this visit which was £40 for 3 courses which we thought was great value for money. We have visited 3 times and defo somewhere we will be returning to.

    A great find for brunch before a theatre show. It was extremely busy but well organised - plenty of friendly staff attending to customers. Order was taken and good arrived promptly. Good quality food which was well presented - really tasty meals and very reasonable prices. I asked for my egg to be 'well done' and it was perfect for my taste! The well kept toilets are a bonus - very stylish!

    A very busy, vibrant place with great atmosphere. Food and service were fantastic, despite being so busy, staff were really attentive. Sunday roast was super tasty and great value. This place is a real gem and we will definitely be back next time we’re in London. Big thanks to Lucas and the lovely host (whose name we didn’t get) for making us feel really welcome.

    Sunday morning brunch with a group of friends. Service was very poor - we had to ask for someone to take our order / drinks etc. Food was all completely cold and one of the parties had hairs in it so sent it back. Waitress did try to compensate at the end and was friendly and didn't charge us for food, but not a good experience and would not go back!

    Not as good as usual, there were 7 of us and we only had 2 hours in which arrive and eat 3 courses. This would not have been a problem if we had not waited 20 minutes for our first drinks to arrive. Then at 5:15 we were presented with bill and hassled to leave for the next table booking. Overall OK, but not what we’ve come to expect from the old Compton brasserie

    Booking of 8 and the table was a bit cramped. Food was great and drink’s delish. We were rushed by our server from the moment we sat down. At one point she told me to call the “late” arrivals to get their order because we only have the table for 1hr. We sat at 12:30 and our table was ours for 2hrs we’d only been there for 15mins! She also told me her manager will not be allowing us to stay later than our one course. Every moment she came over she’d remind us that we needed to leave! Not great! Really disappointed it was a rushed in and get them out moment. Food was lovely and the cocktails were delicious.

    Visited London with my Mum and Sister for the first time since Lockdown, we love to stay around Leicester Square/Soho so I did some research of the Area. We loved the look of Old Compton Brassiere so I checked out the reviews and decided to book. We were so glad we did! Despite the restaurant being very busy, the Host at the front greeted us and sorted us with a drink whilst waiting for the table. A lot of reviews mention the noise. I must say it was refreshing to have such a buzz going into a restaurant since lockdown, the music was not overpowering it was atmosphere. The live singer was fantastic and the restaurant was decorated so lovely for Christmas. All the waiting staff were efficient and polite and the service could not be faulted. A nice gap between both courses, food was hot and fresh which I am very fussy by the temperature of the food. Overall a fantastic first visit to Old Compton and it certainly will not be our last. Our meals, Starter - Kedgeree Scotch eggs - Delicious and Korean BBQ wings also delicious. We all had the Fish & Chips, some of the nicest we've had.

    Lovely meal, great vibe about the restaurant, we did get offered a table at the bottom of the stairs which was not great as it was in the thoroughfare asked for a different table which they accommodated. It was particularly noisy as we had 2 party tables near us and I guess as it is near Christmas everyone get a bit rowdy, but once they left it was much better noise wise. I sound like a moaner but even the waiter couldn’t hear us when we were ordering! Otherwise can’t fault it for great food and great value for London and especially near the theatre district.

    We came here after the theatre. Served quickly by a lovely waiter who explained the menu etc to us. Food came promptly without being too quick between courses. The food was plentiful, hot, and very good. There was a Xmas ‘ do’ table near us and although rather loud didn’t bother us too much. It’s Christmas after all. The ambiance though was very good. We would definitely come here again.
