We visited The Toy Shop as a group of 4 adults in October, having been out for dinner in Putney. When we arrived, the place was rammed full of very stuck-up and rather nosy girls who seemed to be more interested in our group rather than concentrating on their own night, but we chose to ignore them and enjoy our...

Hi Sarah Thank you for your email. It was myself who handled the incident you have described that evening although It think it may be necessary to clarify the version of events. You were asked initially to leave as you refused to pay for your drinks, citing: "You didn't feel you should pay for them as you didn't like the... More

Good Music and busy even mid week. Shame the venue is not bigger as you get pushed around a bit, with people trying to find space.

For those keen to try something a but different - the toy shop is a fun bar to try. Busy, vibrant atmosphere, not the cheapest by any means but well worth it for a drink or two. The only tricky bit is choosing with cocktail to go for... Golden ticket not required.

I came here with my boyfriend last year and loved the atmosphere. It was happy hour so we had plenty to drink for reasonable prices and the food was reasonable too. I didn't think it was amazing food but would definitely give it another chance because of the overall experience and friendly staff!

Had a great time with a group at The Toy Shop on a recent visit to London. Cool bar with a funky vibe, great music, good crowd and even a rooftop terrace for nicer days. Will definitely return and highly recommend it for a good night out in SW London!

Such an awesome bar/cocktail place to drink at with friends in Putney. Definitely one of my favorites and always have great drinks specials going on during the week. The Toy Shop lager is great and definitely would recommend having the cocktail with the marshmallow in it. Bar staff are friendly and always present your drinks in a cool way. Rad... More

My boyfriend hosted a charity event at "The Toy Shop" and it went amazing. Jamie (the manager) and the team were so welcoming and they all worked so hard to make sure the evening ran perfectly, which it did. Venue looked incredible and all of the guests were happy and enjoyed the evening. Cocktails were delicious and I will definitely... More
