Went for dinner and had a salad - it was pretty basic and boring. The dressing was very oily. Pretty disappointing on the food front. The staff were very attentive but overly so - it felt like they were trying to get us out of our seats to make way for the next booking (we had 30 mins before we... More

As the subject line suggests I waited and waited for my order of toast. Very simple, it wasn't busy and I've seen it busier however you need to be really special to mess up toast. When I finally received it - it was cold I asked if I could have it hot and was snapped at that's it served cold!... More

Great food and drinks. Love the yellow juice. Artichoke dip was great. Very noisy and very slow service. Could be a great lunch spot perhaps outside the busiest times...

So my wife and I tried this place our first morning in London. Service was friendly and the food was amazing. I ordered scrambled eggs on toast and my wife had eggs Benedict. Both were delicious. The English muffins were really good too. Highly recommend going here for a lovely breakfast

Sunday morning at 1030am is pretty quiet around Oxford Circus. No stores open yet and everyone still recovery from the night before. And then you realise that isn't the case - everyone is having brunch at the riding house cafe! This place was packed! Luckily we had booked. For a decent sized restaurant it has quite a boutiquey intimate atmosphere.... More

RHC serves a boring and bland interpretation of widely available breakfast and lunch staples. It reminds me of the breakfast club in a more sophisticated ambiance, even down to the waiting time for the food. A good 40 minutes for two servings of eggs Benedict! First arrived the Avo Smoothie which, on paper sounds amazing but was an absolute let... More

I've visited a few times over the years and trendy places like this in London have a tendency to go downhill....but this is still maintaining the quality of its cuisine and service. A delightful business lunch was had by all where we shared a number of plates from Mac'n'Cheese to Pork belly to Oysters. All washed down with a delightful... More

Me and my boyfriend visiting The Riding House Café for breakfast around once a month. The food is pricey but delicious so you don't mind paying that little bit more. Good choice of food and drinks. Edgy style. Good service. Would rate 9/10.
