Went to The Toy Shop for some food and pre-drinks before going out for the night in the Westend. I went for the Manwich which was great and recommended. I'm pretty fussy about my beer but loved the toy shop branded beer they had on tap. Know nothing about cocktails but the friendly bar staff (think he was the head... More

Overpriced pre mixed cocktails. I've been living in the area many years and often on the look out for new places to go. Unfortunately this isn't somewhere I'd want to spend my money again the cocktails coming in at around a tenner each come from pre mixed bottles and the bar tenders just add a few bits of ice etc...

Some friends came here recently and recommended that we try it out when we were next in London. We visited on a Friday evening and it was very busy. The cocktails are really quirky and great fun, but the food is wonderful - I don't know how they do it at that price!! They serve 'munch boxes' which I thought... More

A colourful delight and trendy new addition to putney. Food is fantastic and reasonably priced. The decor is Classy, and Fun. The cocktails are creative and exciting (served with lolly pop whistles and various other treats) An all round great experience, Would definitely recommend it.

We tried the Toy shop on Putney High Street on a Friday night. When I arrived it wasn't too busy and I have been shown to a table from a friendly waitress. I liked the decor and the different Cocktails they offered not just the standard ones. The only negative point at the beginning was that the door was open... More

Had dinner on a weekday night to try out the Earth and Turf menu and really enjoyed the menu. Also is a great place for cocktails, something completely different that Putney needs.

Decided to try this restaurant today with friends, not impressed with the menu choice and I am still running to the loo after the curried butternut squash fajitas which were very bland and uninteresting. The side orders were nothing special. The service was good, on the expensive side, however watch for the service charge which is automatically added to the... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, I am very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your meal with us. Our butternut squash fajitas are one of our most popular dishes so I was saddened to read that they were lacking in flavour . If you would drop an email to jamie@thetoyshopbar.com I would be more...

We ate there on Saturday evening and had a great time. The night didn't start to smoothly as we had a waitress who was "on training" and tried to memorise our order.... Needless to say our order was incorrect but this was spotted by a very attentive manager (I think) who corrected it and made sure the remainder of our... More

This is a new venue occupying the site of La Mancha, which apparently has moved west to Chiswick. The theme is in the venue's name and it serves a small selection of very interesting cocktails, that have been developed by one of the venture's partners. These are on the whole delicious and will set you back between £8.50 and £9... More
