Opened in 2010 Seven at Brixton has become a well loved cocktail and tapas bar in Brixton Market. Combining traditional Spanish dishes with an interesting setting (its housed in an old suitcase shop) with a good mix of wallet-friendly inventive cocktails, Seven has become a go to place when visiting Brixton. Open at 9am daily we have a varied brunch menu of porridge, granola and our take on the full English, the full Spanish! In the afternoon attention turns to tapas with traditional dishes such as Pimiento del Padron, Gambas, Jamon Iberico and our own sharing plates of Spanish cheeses, Jamon, chorizo, patatas bravas and more! Our wines are all based around the Mediterranean with a real attention to food matching, and our cocktail menu changes seasonally and ranges from £5-£7.50

Only service was like in Spain - slow and incorrect. Food was okey but we didn’t get a desert and we need to wait 30 min until they discover what was wrong.

Food is great and going Sunday for 50% off you can get amazing food for ridiculously cheap prices. The only thing is every time I’ve been to Seven is the service isn’t great, the staff are all friendly but you wait a long time just to be seen for a table, many tables not cleared or cleaned, and a long time waiting for food

This was the worst food we’ve ever had in London. We tried lots of dishes. All totally disgusting. Such a shame. Absolutely love Spanish tapas normally but couldn’t even swallow a mouthful from 2 of the dishes. Seriously atrocious. The wine was fine and that was it. The Plates were all practically full when cleared by the waitress and given that she didn’t ask how the meal was, we could only assume they already knew. Don’t waste your money here. Food is shockingly bad.

Hey Jane, so so disappointing to read such poor feedback. We've never had such bad comments. I'm really keen to know more so would love to hear from you on what the dishes you had and I can look into your experience more. Thanks, Jonny - jonny@sevenbargroup.c o m

1) Take a basic greasy spoon breakfast, 2) replace sausage with chorizo
3) call it “Spanish breakfast”
4) profit

Lol, a bit of paprika on eggs doesn’t make it Spanish.

Great vibey restaurant and the food is excellent. We were 20 mins late for our booking and found our table had been given away. So we took a table upstairs. Much quieter up there, and we felt a bit forgotten in the corner. We only had 2 drinks over an hour and a half as service was so slow. Nice place, great food, service way too slow which caused frustration

The location , food and service are good. Very friendly service and nice tapas but we went around 4pm at the end of brunch service and the inside restaurant was so loud! Ended up at a table outside in the covered market which was ok but still subjected to rowdy bottomless brunch exodus. More like a bar than a restaurant.

Surprisingly good, started off a little quite due to the time of the booking, got busier later with a great vibe and ambiance, food and beer very good (didnt have any wine), the potatas bravas wasn't as good as I've had elsewhere however all the other tapas ordered were good, tasty and left us wanting more!

Visisted Seven on Saturday night for a few drinks and some tapas with friends and had a great time, ended up staying longer than planned. Was pretty busy but service was great, very attentive. Atmosphere was also perfect for cocktails on Saturday night - was loving the playlist. We’ll be back!

Another great Saturday night at Seven! Booked a table for a catch up with some friends and as always the food and cocktails we're on point! Can always guarantee great service from the friendly staff and they didn't give us any funny looks when we ordered our third round of Patatas Bravas (they're just too good)!

It was a disappointing experience unfortunately. The food was nice enough, although would have been great to have some instruction on portion sizes for sharing purposes. The cocktails weren't all they were cracked up to be - nothing special. Service was very slow - we waited 30 minutes for a extra order of bread, at which point we asked for it to be cancelled so we could just get the bill and leave. It was also quite loud but that is to be expected, I think, for the setting.

Our experience at 7 was truly disappointing. Despite having booked a table, there were other guests sitting at our table when we arrived, who were awkwardly asked to move. Our drinks took over 30 mins to arrive, and we barely saw our waiter, but when we did he said that the bar was “extremely busy” and we must “be patient”. Our food order eventually came (it was really good), but the waiter didn’t apologize for the wait. We didn’t dare order more drinks in case it would take another half hour, so asked for water three times. We were handed the bill (without asking for it) and told we had to leave because they were closing. We waited another 30mins for the card machine to arrive (so the closing deadline couldn’t have been that urgent?), and we had to ask to change the bill twice as it was incorrect (we had been over charged). Our waiter was very badly trained, not a good communicator, and quite frankly needed help with the upstairs section. We will not be going to 7 again because of this awful service.

We got a table for six people on a short notice and could rebook it twice as we needed more time. But the food was basic and the drinks not very good. Just not a place I would recommend at all.

Liked the vibe and the food. Slightly off putting to be asked to submit my card before we ordered due to “a problem with people doing runners without paying” kind of ruined the atmosphere somewhat!!

I booked a table for my friend’s 30th on a Saturday night and it was brilliant. I’ve been to Seven before but never booked or eaten there. I made the booking for 14 people and we were given our own room. Perfect! The service was fab. Every time a new person joined the group the lady came to check if they wanted anything. We also asked to pay for drinks as we went so that the tab wouldn’t get too crazy and that went really smoothly. Service with a smile throughout! 😊

After a poor start with not receiving our starters for 30 minutes we had an enjoyable meal. The highlight being the prawn dish.

Great for a few cocktails and some nibbles. Cocktail menu changes fairly regularly and they always try to do something a bit more creative with the cocktails than most other places

Really enjoyed an evening meal here. Great and inventive cocktails, simple and very tasty tapas. Great atmosphere of a busy bar but personal service from the waitress who was looking after us. They do a bottomless brunch deal that looks excellent too, hopeuflly pop back on a weekend afternoon!

I was really excited to try this place. I like the way it's been designed but in Winter it's a bit cold so we had to keep our jackets stayed on. The tomato bread was great but unfortunately the rest of the food was really average, especially the Jamon. I think it's better to come here just for drinks.

Our experience was overall positive. Larger sharing platter is really good and lots of food for two people ... cocktails are great but they took long to come to us (maybe was the waitress!) but then they kept them going which was good

Seven Brixton is usually a lot of fun. However it can get very noisy there! I'd recommend it for a big group but not for intimate dining as it's just too loud.
