It was a good venue and the entertainment was great. Food was lacklustre but very good value for money.

The Piano Works Farringdon pairs live music and hearty food to create a unique dining experience. Found in a listed Victorian warehouse, atmosphere is guaranteed, with musicians playing only songs requested by the audience from their song request napkins.

The Piano Works menu begins with moreish sharing platters, burger sliders, and tempting snacks like smoked haddock croquettes with curried mayo. The main event comes in the shape of filled rolls served with smoked paprika and herb salt-coated chips, Asian-style pickled daikon and dipping sauces. Amongst the fillings, try yellowfin tuna steak in a toasted brioche roll with guacamole and mango, or whole marinated chicken breast with jalapeño, fresh coriander and preserved lemon mayo.

Finish with a delectable dessert, with homemade pies and seasonal chocolate treats on offer. From The Piano Works bar come a host of creative cocktails, alongside an impressive wine list and world beers.

An inimitable blend of music and food, The Piano Works London offers eating, drinking and dancing in laidback, contemporary surrounds. Farringdon Tube Station is just 3 minutes’ walk away.

    Cocktails delicious. Food good. Music disappointing, we couldn't see the pianist and they didn't play our request which is a frequent complaint. We were hurried out when our two were up.

    The food was delicious! Was a bit disappointed with the music selection as only 1/6 songs (that we requested and tipped every time) was performed. The rest were never heard

    Went with a group of friends on a Tuesday night. Venue is obviously very popular. Good quality food and cocktails at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere was great, as was the service. We were very impressed with the singers ... one female and one male ... and they covered many genres of music. Would thoroughly recommend for a fun night out!

    Such a brilliant concept, we had so much fun here, and the food and drinks were delicious too.

  • (**** by from KOPER

    desert was very good! it was misleading advertising, had no idea that we will eat burgers (that I NEVER eat!). Idea about music wish is excellent but realisation not at all as you can not hear the music, the ambient is horribly loud, absolutely not suitable for people over certain age! (we are 60). we expected to dance but no way! stuff kind.
