    We were a party of six and all had the set menu. The ambience was very nice, intimate and quiet. This was my second time. The food always has a sophisticated twist to it, using fresh ingredients. We were sat close to the big windows so you can see River Thames which was quite relaxing. Service was great but probably the best thing was the food and also the value for money. I love House so much and really enjoyed both my first and second visit.

    Excellent experience. We ate from the set menu which was extremely good value. Delicious and unusual salads and main dishes.
    Good wine and helpful but unobtrusive service. Space between tables means you can chat freely. We were dining late but did not feel pressured to hurry our meal.

    Service was excellent, but the menu was a limited for us

    Great value set menu, food excellent and wine options really good. Some tables have views of the river. Otherwise it is internal at the National Theatre and is very full until the start of the main play then empties out. Was very impressed by visit. Would go again and will try their other restaurants also. A great spot on the river.
