For those keen to try something a but different - the toy shop is a fun bar to try. Busy, vibrant atmosphere, not the cheapest by any means but well worth it for a drink or two. The only tricky bit is choosing with cocktail to go for... Golden ticket not required.

I came here with my boyfriend last year and loved the atmosphere. It was happy hour so we had plenty to drink for reasonable prices and the food was reasonable too. I didn't think it was amazing food but would definitely give it another chance because of the overall experience and friendly staff!

Had a great time with a group at The Toy Shop on a recent visit to London. Cool bar with a funky vibe, great music, good crowd and even a rooftop terrace for nicer days. Will definitely return and highly recommend it for a good night out in SW London!

Such an awesome bar/cocktail place to drink at with friends in Putney. Definitely one of my favorites and always have great drinks specials going on during the week. The Toy Shop lager is great and definitely would recommend having the cocktail with the marshmallow in it. Bar staff are friendly and always present your drinks in a cool way. Rad... More

My boyfriend hosted a charity event at "The Toy Shop" and it went amazing. Jamie (the manager) and the team were so welcoming and they all worked so hard to make sure the evening ran perfectly, which it did. Venue looked incredible and all of the guests were happy and enjoyed the evening. Cocktails were delicious and I will definitely... More

Myself and my friend went to try the cocktails for an upcoming charity event here. The guy Jamie (I think) was very chatty and gave us in depth knowledge on the drinks and knee the menu inside out. Very approachable to talk to. After he left we tried the rest of the cocktail menu. Great drinks and nice feel about... More

Recently visited the Toyshop for a mates birthday and a brilliant night was had by all! Cocktails were out of this world and served with a creative flare - I still have my Lego mug it is so cool ;-). All the staff were so friendly and had great banter (especially the security at the door, Paul in particular). Nothing... More

I have been aware of the toy shop for a while and have been excited to go. I'm not a fan of sweet disco drinks but it seemed like a fun concept so while in the area I popped in on a quiet Monday night. Alarm bells went right off when we walked into a nearly empty bar and didn't... More

We visited here for my birthday for a pre birthday drink. They have a nice venue on the high street and a great little balcony over the road. The 2 for 1 menu for happy hour had some creative flavours and generally very tasty cocktails. The gin fizz with elderflower is particularly nice! I was a little disappointed that I... More
