Decent location, busy bar with a good menu and drinks selection. Service was ok, nothing special. Could do with some attention to detail though, tables were sticky and needed to be wiped, toilets were pretty poor really, grubby. You can always judge a venue by the attention they pay to their loos!

I went here for lunch with some work colleagues and we were shocked at the way in which we were treated by the waiter. He stomped around muttering curses under his breath, as if he had tourettes, and then he snapped at us several times whilst we were ordering. I have been to many All Bar One venues, and have...

I've been in here a few times for lunch as I work nearby, but after today I will not be going back. Went in with a few friends after work, and it was apparent from the beginning that the waiter was flustered and in a bad mood. Had to wait about 10 minutes to even get menus, we eventually ordered...

Had both breakfast and dinner here and the food was excellent. It is a popular spot right next to the LSE so be prepared to go early or wait for an evening table

We came across this All Bar one by chance, and am so glad we did. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Really nice atmosphere, and the young lady from Naples who cleared our table and stopped to chat was adorable. Really hope we get the chance to visit this branch again.

I cannot fault this place. Have been coming here for years and it maintains its high standards. Friendly, efficient staff. Good service. There is an excellent choice of food and wine, both reasonably priced. What more can you ask for. Would thoroughly recommend.

We have visited here a couple of times. It is a nice bar not far from Holborn station. We came here after an afternoon tea to break our journey home up and have visited a few times before on our way to the theatre. Lovely selection of cocktails that are not expensive. Nice atmosphere and always manage to get a... More

I visited this venue with 7 other members of my family for a cocktail session for my birthday. After a shakey start of them advising that the wrong date had been booked (I knew it hadn't), they advised that there were actually able to fit us in, and if we could just wait for around 15/20 mins they would be...

I booked a table through Darryl to take a Chinese delegation for a very quick lunch between a packed programme of meetings. Having called up in advance I arrived to find a table for the group had been set up as agreed. The food (and tea - they were Chinese guests) was delivered speedily and the service was really very...
