Enjoyed our sirloin burgers - and great keg and craft ciders. No AC but back door let in a pleasant breeze!

You might stumble across a place like this in some winding country road but you wouldn't expect to in bustling London just a 10 minute walk from busy Victoria station. Tucked away in the backstreets behind a kind of farmers market, you are unlikely to find this little family run gem on the regular tourist route, but as most reviewers... More

What a fabulous find, Chimes is a cider bar offering a wide range of different ciders. The food was amazing, I started with Whitby pudding, a Yorkshire pudding with prawns in a white wine sauce. I then chose a simple salmon salad, however the mains that I saw looked really good, especially the pies. I couldn't resist the bread and... More

This was my first lunch in London on my most recent visit to the city and I thoroughly enjoyed the pies and the ciders. There were so many beverage options that it was hard to choose just one, and I wish I had gone back to try some more! I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a good bite... More

Have now dined here twice, both times superb! On both occasions we ordered a jug of cider then a starter - main. The menu is very imaginitive, hints of the West Country with several game/rural dishes, the staff are very cheerful, informative, and polite, all in all a lovely place to dine in central London.

I've been going to Chimes on and off for years, but never thought to write a review about it. Then last week I went in and was charged a surprising amount for my snack and a glass of house wine. I didn't bother querying it, but the waitress brought me a refund a few minutes later with an explanation and... More

Good place and good food, in a typical British style. In a very calm area near to the Pimlico station. Kind waiters and quick service. You can eat a variety of English dishes - even vegetarian - and select your crafted cider choosing among many brands and types. Value for money.

I come to Chimes every time I come to London. Didn't know I needed a reservation which disturbed me a bit...never needed one before. But, the pies were stupendous! Which more than made up for having to sit up front. Will come again.

Very very average, service awful, for the first time ever I asked for the service charge to be removed. Took ages to ask us If we wanted a drink and didn't ask again, didn't get asked if we enjoyed the meal and if they would have asked would have told them nooooooo. Pies were ok that's the best i can... More
