We had popped in one night and it was full and vibey and because it was popular, we decided to put it on our list of places to go to for a meal. We went on the Saturday afternoon after Christmas and it wasn't full at all. My daughter and I ordered the fish and chips and my husband decided... More

Visited once on the 21st Dec and came back twice again in the two days following as we loved it so much! Great value little sharing plates, whitebait and Camembert was delicious! Cosy warm pub atmosphere and the Christmas decorations really did make it that extra bit magical. Very clean, a nice sized pub (not big, not small) great staff... More

Stopped here for lunch and a rest after battling the Regent St crowds on a Saturday in December. There are plenty of fancier and chain places to eat locally, but we enjoy a proper London pub and this really did hit the spot. Tucked just behind Regent St, it was a good choice to get away from all the noise.... More

Stopped here for a much needed stop for food and a rest from shopping. Seated upstairs with a lovely view from the window. Staff were very friendly and attentive both in seating us and taking our order. Of particular note was the Italian girl who served us and was very friendly and helpful. My wife had fish and chips which... More

They served without a doubt the worse meal we have eaten in 10 years of visiting London. We got the Sunday Roast special and after waiting 10 minutes we figured out that downstairs in the pub all orders went through the bartender. We ordered and waited and waited and waited and finally asked the bartender where our order was. He... More

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
