I love Soho, it's my favourite place to treat myself to a solo lunch (their seafood pancake is 👌🏻) or a lovely dinner with friends or dates. Recently booked for my birthday lunch and they surprised me with a slice of chocolate cake 🖤 Great food, friendly and attentive staff, nice atmosphere, pretty decor.

I was looking forward to this meal, but unfortunately the experience fell short. Sadly, the server was overbearing, she regularly interrupted us with what seemed like systematic checkpoints she was trained to do - with no authentic apology for the interruption, it was borderline rude. My guest was visibly uncomfortable with the convoluted menu options and our server did little to help with the many customisations options - instead it felt as though she was upselling bigger things, when my guest was already overwhelmed. The food was decent and the ambience and value for money matched. Sadly the experience would lead me unlikely to return.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Carter & Fitch. We look forward to serving you!
Pizzeria - The Carter & Fitch pizza is a real Italian affair. Devour the Pizza Lungo 12” thin crust pizza, fresh from our Italian oven. The base is hand stretched using long ferment dough, resulting in a delicate crust. Topped with our very own secret sauce.
Smokehouse - All of our meats are from selected prime cuts, rubbed with our unique blend of spices and seasonings, infused overnight, then smoked in our Oklahoma smokehouse oven, low and slow over Mesquite, till meltingly tender.
Bar - Our fully stocked bar has something to wet every appetite from beer, spirits, wines, champagnes and cocktails. If you feel like throwing caution to the wind…ask your server about our new ‘Hard Shakes’. We even have a ‘Speak Easy’…Shhh, that’s our little secret!
