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

The place can look ok inside but the bouncers and the manager OMG they are really agresive with clients and kind of racists. They make the bar not a relax place to chill with friends. Would not recommend this place to anybody. Terrible customer service.

I went to this place with two girlfriends, we were sitting at the terrace they have on the second floor. We had a few margaritas and after the happy hour we bought a bottle of Prosecco, before we start drinking the bottle we were approached but a very angry security man and someone who apparently was the manager who said...

Thank you for taking the time to write you review. I will now take the time to run through exactly what happened that evening to clarify for everyone. Your friend had clearly enjoyed a little too much fizzy pop and our hosts sat with her outside and provided water as is policy- we're good like that. I took the time... More

Aggressive bouncers, the place becomes a hustle after 8 pm; there are better places to go in Putney. It has poorly trained staff, unfriendly atmosphere.

Hi there, Thank you for your review. The timely nature of your feedback coincides a situation that occurred that evening with a group of ladies felt it appropriate behaviour to throw a glass at a member of staff on our terrace. Whilst our hosts are generally lovely chaps who have been known to even enjoy a cheeky quickstep to the... 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

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Firstly, I'm sorry that we didn't manage to meet your expectations. Having checked the rota on the day in question I can see that we did indeed have a trainee staff member on. I was disappointed to read that they were clearly left to there own devices which you correctly... 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

Have been here a few times with work colleagues for after work drinks. Great cocktails and a fun variety to choose from but definitely more affordable during happy hour. Management do need to make reserved signs more visible as we saw quite a few people sit down at reserved tables because the reserved signs were in glasses and at first... More
