Amazing food, decent prices, nice drinks and reasonable service. Slightly slow service, due to not many staff but the lady did a fairly good job at keeping up with everything. The fish and chips is highly recommended, mine was huge!! Lovely.

Last couple of times I was here we went downstairs and it was crowded, not pleasant to eat and all together not much fun but upstairs is different, girl that worked alone is great fun and excellent service, drinks are almost cheap and food is great. Big portions, fish and chips with nice cod, nice hamburgers too. There's much more... More

My friends all had the Fish and Chips and while the mushy peas was passed on, the Fish was fantastic, light crispy coating and perfectly cooked cod. My own Hunter's Chicken was good tasting, but dry. The 1730 Ale on Tap was very good. Fresh Cut fries would have been welcomed.

Pleasantly surprised to find a friendly pub in central London. The Glassblower feels like a 'local' pub despite being located just off Regent Street. The bar staff were welcoming and friendly, the food was good and the atmosphere was relaxed. I will definitely be going back and highly recommend it.

Had a quick drink and bite to eat ( sharing fish and chip platter). The food was ok but prior to it's arrival I had to use the ladies which was out of order and the gents urinal was customised as a "unisex" toilet. It was horrendous ! - filthy and stank to high heaven of stale urine. It completely... More

I recently discovered this place when a friend suggested meeting there for a drink. It's a great pub and in a great location, really convenient for meeting friends after work. Went back with another friend and had tasty fish and chips there. Much prefer it to the characterless bars in Soho!

We wanted to have fish and chips while in London and happened to walk by this place. It looked nice so we went inside. The downstairs is a typical pub. They have dining room upstairs which is very nice. The fish and chips were very good. The portion is big enough, at least for women :-)
