This was our first visit to the Bloomsbury and glad to say will be the first of many! We brought our two children (3 & 5) for New Years Day lunch and were warmly welcomed on arrival and really looked after by the lovely owners....More

Just paid our first visit to The Bloomsbury despite having lived in the Twickenham area for years. We had fantastic lunch at the pub corner which is on the corner of 5th Cross Rd Twickenham and Staines Road. Massive well cooked portions, we were a...More

We came with family on the strength of other reviews and were not disappointed. My mother was visiting from the States and looking forward to having traditional fish & chips. Only complaint was that she was too full to finish it all. All of us...More

My wife and I lunched at the Bloomsbury and found it to be as good as any Sunday roast we have ever had and we will certainly eat there again.

I do like a pizza, and quite frankly Pete's are the best I've had outside of Italy. It's been a bit of a mission for him to create the perfect pizza, apparently he's been perfecting his dough for quite some time and it's paid off...More

The best fish, chips and mushy peas you can get in Twickenham. The Thai green chicken curry is also fantastic.

My Mum and I went for the roast lunch and the first thing that struck us was the friendly staff - how wonderful. We were recommended to have a small potion unless we were big eaters. Thank goodness we did as I can't imagine getting...More

I don't know but the chap is very friendly, came out of the kitchen to ask if the food was alright. He loves cooking and enjoyed he's food. About 5 10, dark hair slightly grey age 45-55. Hope this helps
Oh! How surprised I am to hear anyone describe the food at this establishment as "Disappointing" and "Average". I have been using The Bloomsbury for well over 40 years now, as I live very near to it, and have always found the food to be first class. Being something of a foodie myself I am most discerning about what and where I eat and this eatery has stalwartly remained numero uno in my estimation. What I would love to know is where reviewer Paul S. would recommend in the Twickenham area for a superior meal. I for one would surely try out the food at that (or those) establishments. Some come on Mr. S. Please tell. Don't keep such important informationall to yourself. Or are you afraid that the place, or places you prefer, may become so overcrowded that you will not be able to eat your favourite dish there anymore?

I've enjoyed many a meal at the Bloomsbury and have never been let down either by the food or the service. I would say however that there are comparable places such as the Prince Blucher - good pub food, lovely atmosphere... More
