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.

I don't usually take the time to write reviews but this place was so good I had to recommend it! Some friends and I visited during happy hour so obviously took full advantage of £5 cocktails. It was great to see a different range of cocktails to try compared to your usual sex on the beach, mojitos etc. I tried... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. As I did politely explain to you, we are an over 21 venue after 7pm and I was sorry to not be able to allow you entry on this occasion. As you may remember, I offered a complementary sharer cocktail on a return visit when you turn 21... More

Visited the Toy Shop after spotting the £5 cocktail happy hours deals. They present an alternative take on classic cocktails (e.g. bee pollen infused tequila for the margarita or cocktails being served in unconventional glasses), which we were excited to try, but actually didn't taste that good... The food was much better than the drinks. The sandwiches and burgers are... More

Myself and my wife visited the Toy shop bar for the first time last saturday and it was well worth the £70 round trip in a taxi because there was no district line. The cocktails are amazing they are probably the best i have ever had and the food i had beer battered chicken with chips and home made slaw... More

Lovely interior, bright colourful and clean. Although Sunday roast was available I had a munch box - brilliant novelty idea in presentation. To be fair it was probably the best veggie (sweet potato) burger and chips I've had all year but drinks are a little overpriced - Rekorderlig £6 a bottle! Service was slow also. The whole place has a... More

Okay, it's a Bank Holiday Monday and my friend and I are wondering what is there to chow down on in Putney-not wanting to consume the bog standard same ol' high street fast food, popped into this joint and so glad we did. From the exterior throughout to interior is coherent. The place is mesmeric. But we want food: important!... More
