the hotel rooms are lovely and the staff brilliant …. also the location is excellent and because on a side road is really quiet at night and has great bars nearby ….. a few niggles….. ordered a £52 bottle of wine in the bar/restaurant (my mistake misread price on menu) but got a £7.80 service charge added which was a bit cheeky for opening a bottle of wine …. also small niggle in the double rooms give 4 sets of milk not 3 as will be 2 people who will probaby want 2 cups of tea….. especially as loads of tea provided ……..in all a nice stay and would recommend but maybe eat drink elsewhere
I feel bad, because maybe the restaurant is understaffed, but what was meant to be a nice Christmas meal, was just really disappointing. Firstly - the food. It was fine. We all had roasts. The potatoes were not nice, but the rest was okay. I'd even go so far as to say that the chicken was even quite good. The main issue was the service. They give a max of 2 hours at the table, which is plenty of time. . . as long as people actually serve you. However, having initially had our orders taken, the only other time anyone came to our table was to take our plates away, and then to tell us we needed to leave in 10 minutes. There was no checking to see if we wanted another drink (which we did, but ended up not ordering), or dessert (which we also wanted, but didn't end up ordering). I certainly won't bother going here again. Also the toilets were pretty dirty. Nasty.…
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!…
Had lunch here with our younger son and daughter-in-law plus their Australian Labradoodle following a long walk in Hyde Park. This place has a lovely decor and ambience and great staff. Good choices on menu.We all had fish dishes. Fresh and beautifully prepared. There is a good choice of drinks here. I would happily eat here again and recommend it to anyone.
Beautifully decorated and quirky restaurant. Excellent service and such good food. The chicken and mushroom pie was delicious, pastry lovely. My partner had the pork and said it was his best ever. Dessert was also very good. Hidden behind Oxford st and very close to Marble Arch. Seek it out, you won’t be disappointed
We like the pub and really wanted to like the rooms more. We were on the top floor, in a 'superior double'. We checked in at about 3pm and tried to go for a nap, having left home at 4am that morning. But the cleaning cupboard is on the top floor too, and cleaning staff made an unbelievable racket for an hour, banging and clattering. There are three guest rooms on that floor - it seems a weird place to keep the cleaning things, and you can hardly blame staff for talking to each other or for laughing. But it was so noisy. The people in an adjoining room came out and complained. We noticed that there were two fans in the room. The reason for these became clear later - it got hotter and hotter as the evening progressed and the kitchens kicked in. We had all the windows open so it was fine temperature wise (if incredibly noisy), but I wouldn't want to be there on a hot summer day. Other than that, room much shabbier than on their website, cheap toiletries (not Aesop, as promised), semi-blocked, slow-draining sink in bathroom, blinds that didn't work properly, two dead lightbulbs in the ceiling spotlights, stained chair on the landing below. Such a shame - the bar and restaurant are both lovely.…
