    Generally good service once the table had been set. This could have been done before we arrived. And the FOH service could be a little friendlier. Food was pretty good and service was perfectly fine and not too intrusive

    Unfortunately, our experience on this occasion was really poor. Service was appalling - our table was ignored constantly with us having to get up and approach staff directly on at least two occasions during the meal. Roast dinners arrived cold. They were replaced and hot second time round. Accompanying vegetables were rock hard. Such a shame because a visit earlier in the year was exceptional.

    We went for breakfast on a Saturday morning, but staffing was a problem. Despite having two hostesses to seat people and set up tables, getting attention from the overstretched waiters was tricky.

    The food was lovely, albeit quite small portions. Service was very slow though - we had to wait 20 minutes for our drinks. Once we said no to dessert, we had to wait AGES for our bill. To the point where I had to ask twice for it. Also it was very, very loud. You can barely hear the person opposite you.

    Hadn’t realised until I got to my office I had been overcharged for breakfast and it appeared I had another tables order in addition to mine. I returned and received an apology and the manager refunded the difference or so I was told. Having got back to my office once again realised I’d still been overcharged as they had kept the total service charge from the original bill. I returned again and felt annoyed at this stage. I had the difference refunded but believe I shouldn’t have paid any service charge and even received breakfast complimentary having had to make two return visits to resolve this. Not a good day at Dean Street Townhouse.

    Ideally situated for Shaftesbury Ave theatres, we love a pre-show dinner at Townhouse. Classy, comfortable, very nice staff, good value, short menu yet something to suit all tastes. It’s one of our Go To restaurants.

    Table was not set when we arrived and they set it once we were seated. We were then given the wrong menus which we had to point out. Drinks orders were not taken for 20 minutes and only when we asked. Starters came very quickly but the rest of the service was extremely slow. Not very attentive, we had to ask for water to be topped up on several occasions.

    Expected more from this venue if I’m honest. Unfortunately the roast was not good (Yorkshire puddings and potatoes hard ) and the fish and chips was over cooked/burnt. Shoujd have sent it back. The starters were good however

    We specifically asked for a quiet table and this was thoughtfully provided, other spaces in the restaurant were much noisier, depends what you like. Our table was near the open fire, gave a warm glow, comfortable low armchairs and cushioned bench were available. The food was excellent and generous, good value for money. The service was friendly and as efficient as you need it to be. Definitely a place to revisit

    This was a great place to meet and enjoy a relaxed brunch. It was rather loud and full, but pleasant food. The waiter didn't hear me ask for bacon, probably because of the noise level. But that was ok. Probably didn't need it anyway.
