    Very good. The staff were friendly and efficient. Just...don't reduce the size of the portions any further.

  • ((((* 30 December 2016 by Jane Cazalet from London Borough of Wandsworth

    We had booked an early lunch before the matinee of Peter Pan - the service was charming but slow, and the food was delicious, particularly the goose which my husband's choice, but which I had a small taste. I had a salmon starter, which was excellent, and my grandson had the octopus, which was also excellent - in short, the food at House has improved enormously and we enjoyed our meal.

    House was revamped a little while ago from the old restaurant. While there are many more covers in the new restaurant it doesn't feel crowded.

    Excellent service. Food was also very good and good value.

    We had a great time at House. The food was sophisticated, the waiters were really nice and the playlist was lovely. I loved the atmosphere and will come back for sure!

    House is brilliant at being a pre-theatre restaurant. They ask you which show you are going to see but the service is still very relaxed in the best possible way.

    Great service until it got busy then it took a little too long to bring the card machine to pay.

    Very impressed with the courses, sparkling wine, and the cocktails.
