Great for 2 for 1 cocktails but the cocktail list happens to be rather short. And all are very sweet. Which is a shame for someone who likes bitter.

Very disappointed with our experience. Far too crowded, worst cocktails we've ever had. So bad that we couldn't drink them but due to how crowded it was, any attempt to take them back and explain they were disgusting was futile. The toilets were shocking. Really not acceptable for a London cocktail bar and restaurant. Decor pretty basic and generally underwhelming.... More

Really enjoyed my evening at Toyshop and will certainly be recommending it to all my friends! We came on the hunt for a cool quirky place for dinner and drinks for a friends 21st and we were not disappointed. A place like this runs the risk of trying too hard to be a 'cool'/ 'fun' place or too gimmicky, but... More

I have been to Toy Shop numerous times for drinks and always had a good time. So myself and a friend decided to try the food as it always looked good. We went tonight and asked for a table of two. We got seated and ordered our drinks and food at the same times, we thought the waitress seemed a... More

We went here for a friends birthday and booked a table for 20 (it was clear from the moment we walked in its impossible to accommodate this many people)...the staff was the rudest I've ever come buy and we was also told in a rude manner by the manager if we didn't buy a drink we couldn't order food, after...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Feedback is always helpful. In this instance unfortunately I feel the need to refute the review. Your group arrived having reserved a "drinks" table.Unfortunately we were then told everybody wanted to eat in spite of our best efforts to acquire e mail clarification as to whether or not... More

There are so many great places to eat and drink at in Putney but I was keen to give this a go. I had a very unfortunate meal there that soured what should have been a good night. To their credit, Management responded to my complaint, but the actions of the staff on the night have meant that I am... More

Now that this place has been in 'made in Chelsey', it has become very popular with pretentious people, but the place is sweet, great cocktails and a fun atmosphere, although there is very little space to hang out if you don't have a table.
