A colleague and I hosted a business networking dinner for 26 at the Black Trumpet, and it was a great success. From my initial planning with staff, to being the last person out the door, this was a first rate experience, and I'd unreservedly recommend the restaurant to colleagues and clients. Very pleasing decor with an excellent space for our... More

My husband and I had dinner at The Black Trumpet on October 6th, it was his 60th birthday so we decided on this restaurant because we had been before and it was amazing. Ordered a nice bottle of Valpolicella, overpriced but delicious. For appetizers we ordered calamari, which was very disappointing to say the least, it was tasteless compared to... More

We had 21 people for our wedding dinner here and I cannot thank The Black Trumpet enough for the outstanding food, service and venue. I took a shot in the dark, booking online, based on location and reviews, but lady luck was with me that day because I could not have made a better choice if I had tried. They... More

Wow! What a delicious and amazing experience. We were treated like Kings and Queens. Service was absolutely excellent, and all wait staff were SO attentive! The food was to die for (some could have used a little more salt--but that's an easy fix). Of course you pay for what you get.. quality! Had the vegetarian dish, which was delectable. Also... More

The Black Trumpet is one of London's best kept secrets! The atmosphere is casual but upscale with comfortable tables and chairs and a lovely fireplace in the middle of the restaurant. Their patio is a wonderful place to spend a lazy afternoon! The food is consistently excellent and the service is outstanding. Great place for a cozy dinner or a... More

Anniversary dinner. We were seated in the main room in front of the fireplace. The atmosphere was beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing, and the crème Brule is simply to die for. Thank you to Dave – most excellent service received at this restaurant so far! A very enjoyable and romantic evening.

3 of us went for lunch and were seated outside on a very, very hot day. The patio is very nice. We all had a different entree and we all enjoyed our food. The size of both the appetizer and the entree was ample. I found the menu very seafood oriented but there were other choices as well. It is... More

My family and I had lunch here today and from the very start a very positive experience. The food was topnotch and the "Two Daves" made the day. Everyone in our party loved their selections off the menu. If you want great food and great waitstaff, this is the place for you!!! Cheers.
