Good food and friendly staff

Happened on this place with work colleagues after a stressful day. We somehow stayed for several cocktails (!) and had a great meal. All the staff were friendly and helpful and would love to come back sometime soon.

This place has not changed since I first went there 30 years ago when I lived around the corner and frequented for breakfast regularly. It's wonderful. One of my favourite places on London . Food is good. Ambiance is wonderful. Highly recommend the Troubadour.

I found this venue on google while looking for live music events. At £8 a ticket, its a steal for a great night with a really nice atmosphere. An opportunity to hear new things and new up and coming artists. Drinks are a good price also, which 2 for 1 cocktails :)

We stumbled upon this place close to our hotel on a Monday night - Steak night yum! It was a welcome change to the endless tourist traps in the Earls Court area - the quality of the food and service were excellent

Just wanted a cuppa after a hot, longish drive and tube journey and found this place with a lovely tranquil garden in the back. Lots of interesting stuff goes on here - would love to explore further when next in that area

We have been visiting the Troubadour regularly for 3 years now. The food is good and the ingredients are fresh. It is a mix of British food and Mediterranean food. The brunch is nice, for evening dinner there are some very good mains such as the bangers and mash, or the Poulet du Soleil to share. In the summer there... More

I was early for work, so decided to grab some breakfast to kill some time. I read a couple of reviews prior to attending, so thought I would give it a try. This was the best breakfast I EVER had in my life! The food was plenty and the ingredients top quality. The price is reasonable and correct for that... More

I great food and great music, set in one of the best parts of the greatest city on earth excites you, then the Troubadour is a must visit. The downstairs open mike has attracted some superstars in the past - not least, Joss Stone, Nicky and Tanya Wells, and many more.
