Bar staff friendly, wine prices are very good but food is on a par with something you would buy from Iceland for one pound! Only six people in the bar and we waited 45mins for our food, I would return for a quick cheap drink, but as for the food....stay away, shocking!!!!

The pulled pork sandwich & the chicken sandwich were to die for! The house coleslaw was very well done & the chunky chips to finish the meal all served up in a classic tin lunch box!!! Great service and great atmosphere even on a Monday night. Highly recommended.

We arrived with quite high expectations after seeing everyone rant and rave about this place. The interior is quirky, and different, which is nice, and was also rather comfy and it was nice to chill out whilst it wasn't so busy. I had the pesto and mozzarella risotto balls to start, which were rather yummy and I could have eaten... More

I went to visit the upstairs bar of the Toy Shop Bar as a 'maybe' for a private function to celebrate my 30th. From the minute I got in there the staff were all overly friendly and so helpful. I was given a tour of the area I would be hiring out and given a run down of the food... More

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
