My wife and I were meeting two friends prior to going to see different shows that afternoon! We picked the Glassblower because it was between the two venues we had to go to see the shows! We pre booked a table and were shown upstairs to a lovely room, well lit by normal light, nice size with plenty of tables... More

We went here after seeing a matinee performance and we had time to spare before getting our train. It had a really good atmosphere and as it was the week before Christmas, that was great.

We were upstairs in the dining room so it was much quieter than the pub downstairs. Food was delivered by a 'dumb waiter' system so the servers weren't running up and down the stairs. Plenty to eat and although I didn't have a burger it looked delicious. Everyone happy with their selections at our table - fish n chips, Sunday... More

We were going to a show at the Piccadilly Theatre and decided to eat here beforehand. Downstairs was very busy but you can go upstairs to the calm of the dining room as long as you're eating. Good value food especially in London. We all enjoyed our main course but we're really pleased we picked the millionaires cheese cake for... More

My daughter & I visited London for the first time in November. We wanted to experience real British Pub food. We were in Piccadilly at dinner time so we went to Glassblower. My daughter wanted fish and chips, but she also loves calamari so she ordered the fish platter with mushy peas and chips. I ordered the Baby Onion &... More

Visited recently for lunch. Waited almost one hour for two sandwiches and a fish and chip meal. How difficult is it to make a sandwich and prepare a portion of fish, chips and peas ? The restaurant was not exactly buzzing. (No wonder if this is the norm). Three tables who ordered after us where served before us. We left.... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
