Extremely rude service. We were advised breakfast orders must be taken before 11:45 upon our arrival at 11:35. However they then didn't come to take our order. We were flagging them down for about 5 minutes before they eventually came over. They then got our order wrong, yet insisted that it was right upon arrival. Just really rude and poor service overall. Food wasn't bad, but not great either.
Ideal location away from the hustle and bustle, great breakfast.
Delicious food! Couldn't choose what to get so will be back to try more options! Lovely, friendly staff.
So we arrived there and they brought water for our dog which was nice. The waitress was really helpful with the menu and everything was fine. We got the veggie breakfast which was tasty and the marshmallow pancakes,which were more like biscuit and not so well fried. So inside of the pancakes you could see that they were not really well done.
One of our friends got the normal English breakfast which was £14 and it was honestly 1 bacon, 1 sausage couple cherry tomatoes, beans and some bread. So that was really disappointing.
One more thing to improve it would be the drinks. They didn’t have any fresh juice, smoothies, the only had iced white or black coffee. My partner got a Bellini mocktail which was discussing. For 4 people we paid £80 which for breakfast is quite a lot I think.
Overall it was an okayish experience the restaurant was nice but does not worth the hype and probably not going back.
Slow service. Drinks forgotten. Asked to food to all come out at once. It didn't. Not impressed and won't be coming back
Also the manager had a go at one of her staff in front of so many customers. Really bad form
One of my favourite spots for brunch and was so good to come back. As wonderful as ever, loved it.
Great little brunch place! Staff are lovely and food is delish! They were also very accommodating as we were 4 mums with 4 prams
Great food and lovely location. Very comfortable & somehow manages to combine a homely feel with a luxury feel!
Good lunchtime vibe, great place to share plates. Quality of food bus very good, plus good vservice.The wines , a tad expensive but great quality. Happy to return
Always a lovely place to meet friends after work. Helpful staff and a delicious menu.
Good Food and friendly service. I will definitely be back in the near future.
Best roast dinner I have ever had in London. And I have lived here for 12 years and often eat roast dinners :)
Thanks so much for the glowing feedback Philippa! I will pass this on to the team!!! Nick
Lots of choice on menu and good options for veggies. Place was full and had good atmosphere.
The food was good, it could have been better. I got a full cooked veggie breakfast and it was cold when it arrived.
The prices are not worth it - I paid £4.60 for a sparkling water!
Wait staff were very nice and friendly
I highly recommend this place - food and the service were great!
Thanks for the love Reflusz!!!!
I don’t know what’s happened to this place, I have dined here on several occasions previously and always found it buzzy with great food and service. But this time we were seriously let down by very slow and in-attentive staff, plus a dismal children’s meal and a very patchy main meal. Maybe they’re simply resting on their laurels, or perhaps they were just having an off day…
Good morning, I'm sorry to hear we let you down on your visit with us on Saturday. Saturdays can be pretty punchy at times, so i'm sorry this may have affeted your visit. I can assure you this isnt a regular occurance, and we just slipped upon this occasion. If you could, please email me on email@example.com with details of your reservation, so I can look into this further, but also let m eknow when you would like tyo come back and i will make sure we redeem ourselves Nick
Great evening catching up with friends over good food and drinks! Next time will book a table near the bar area for a bit more buzz.
The food was outstanding! Especially for the price in central London, you get very good portions. Everyone who served us was very welcoming, patient & lovely. This is my new go to brunch restaurant now!
Thank you so much for your kind words! Hopefully, we see more of you in the near future! Nick
I've had better food here. Brunch is a busy time indeed. But things were warm going to cold. My English muffins were barely toasted
Service was slow to start with then they really stepped up. Very friendly staff.
Great wine choices. But a confusing menu to choose from. Too many lines
Hi Martyn, Sorry hear the food wasn't up to our usual standard on your last visit. I will review this with the chef and make sure we are on top of this. Please let us know when youre next here so we can touch base Nick
Great food, service and atmosphere at the Riding house Cafe.
Thanks Amerie! Apreciate the good review! Nick
The food never disappoints 😋.
Nice atmosphere inside and outside, helpful staff
Really looked after us and made our daughter’s 6th Birthday meal a pleasure. Staff are friendly and attentive, atmosphere is buzzy and the food and drinks are delicious. We had a really great time - thank you.
Lovely surroundings, great service and good food that was well priced in a great location - not much more to say and I will definitely come back and recommend to others.
This is my go-to London restaurant. took 2 friends last night - they are both foodies and they were both impressed. The service is always good. the atmosphere is amazing. So great that they have dietary info on the menu (makes it so much less awkward to be allergic to something). And we sat outside which was lovely.
Love this place and have been a regular for almost 10 years. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. Highly recommend.
Brilliant place, food and service, decor inside and out very good.
Great service as usual. Amazing food and kid friendly.
Great service and a lovely spot to enjoy a sunny afternoon!
Only allowed the table for 1 hour and 15 mins but the service was slow as the team looked understaffed. The service we received was good but we had to grab waiters as they sped passed. Food was good.
The food wasn’t worth the price, and was a bit cold! Was expecting a lot more from the Riding House Cafe.
The food was pretty good but the service was not at all good. The waitors were lost, giving the orders in wrong tables as it happened to us as well. Not good service at all.
great food, excellent service by anna z. would defo comeback.
Chill and affordable place to brunch! Definitely try the pancakes.
Table ready & waiting for us . Great to share roast chicken with so many sides all included. Only complaint far to much garlic on the Kale !
Great cocktail and very friendly staff . We really enjoyed it .
Thanks for the lovely feedback Letty! We appreciate it! I will pass on the message to chef to make sure the side dish is better balanced! See you next time Nick
Great food, service and location. Can't fault the experience, I will be returning soon
There celebrating a girlfriends birthday just the 2 of us and to help us celebrate they took our tea/coffees off our final bill. Service was impeccable, they even offered and took some photos for us. Will continue to visit x
Thanks Sami for the good feedback and we look forward to seeing you again soon
Staff weren’t very attentive and quite miserable!
Hi Joe, Apologies we let you down on the service. This normally isn't the case with our team! Please let me know if and when you would like to visit again and we can make it up to you. Best Nick
I booked two tables of four for my family and everyone loved it. Great food, even better service.
Thanks for the great feedback Candy!!! Glad you enjoyed your Visit!
Thank you . Delicious as ever !
Good service but food not great!
As always fantastic service, friendly staff, great food - The Soul Burger! Plus the tuna tartare and the donuts are back in the menu! A M A Z I N G and still my go to spot for dinner in London.
Thanks for the wonderful feedback! See you soon!!
