What a great find! We had a superb brunch with a real independent “local” approach to the menu - their “baked beans” are out of this world. It set us up for a day exploring London for the rest of the day.
Me and my family visited the grazing goat for an evening meal. The food was great, although a little expensive. We were served by a waiter called Sina who was very attentive and provided us with excellent customer service throughout our sitting. We would definitely visit here again.
We enjoyed a good Sunday roast at the restaurant, and after paying the bill the waitress returned demanding £1.85 as she claimed we were short on the bill. We explained this was not compulsory as it was the service charge, and we then noticed an additional green expense had been sneakily added to the bill without our consent. We paid the £1.85 but extremely disappointed that this is how we were treated. If I had my way I’d remove the entire service charge after this incident. Poor ending to a pleasant afternoon.
We have been to The Grazing Goat several times over the past year when in London. The food has always been very good and the atmosphere is fun and is hopping but not too noisy. The Sunday roast is great. The price point is a little high for a pub, but it is more upscale than a typical pub, so I think the price point is very fair. Its cosy in the winter and is cool and pleasant in the summer.
1 of 2 reviews (For Restaurant & Hotel) Solo Female Traveler - London First-Timer I had a wonderful experience staying at The Grazing Goat! I stayed in room D on the 3rd floor (no lift), facing New Quebec St. My room was spacious and clean, with a king bed. Upon check-in very early Wednesday morning, I shuffled through the restaurant and greeted a few employees further back. Check-in was not until 3pm, so I left my bags in the rear of the restaurant until then and left to start exploring. I did exactly the reverse upon check-out. Upon check-in later, I was brought up to room D and given a set of keys, one for my room, and one for the main door if I were to come back after the restaurant closed. My room was serviced every day with fresh glasses, and towels on the second day. The toiletries smelled very nice and the robes were a nice touch as well. The bathroom was clean with a glass/tile shower. (Water was very hot) Perfect location to access the Underground and populated streets any time of day. Close enough to all attractions and manageable distance from Paddington Station (If using the Heathrow Express). I always felt safe in my room and walking to and from alone, even late at night. This hotel DOES require independent travellers! The absence of a front-desk, concierge, and more formal hotel details may be difficult for some travellers, such as leaving luggage in the restaurant instead of a private hotel area. Lack of a lift should be noted if you have any mobility concerns. Once the restaurant closes, it feels more like a studio apartment room since staff has left and the street is quiet. It is a small building that is cozy - that being said, you will hear your neighbors in the hallway, on the stairs, and any street noise from the window. Amenities included: Robes, In-room safe, reading lights, closet, desk, kettle, tea, coffee. Would highly recommend The Grazing Goat for your next stay for a solo or couples trip to London! Definitely evaluate your travel style beforehand. Not for everyone, but lovely if you choose it!…
