Description: The newly brushed-up and re-launched Footman in Mayfair definitely hasn't lost any of its British roots in the process. This much-loved pub, restaurant and private event space houses elegant, yet unpretentious surroundings, complete with a truly British menu featuring home-grown produce direct from the farmers. Guests can slide up to the long mahogany bar or comfy booth seating and enjoy well crafted favourites with our well established team. For those who feel that the wine bar set have lost sight of what made Britain great, The Footman Mayfair is definitely for you.

“Really nice pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

My husband & I popped on here for a drink on our way home. Really lovely beer, pleasant staff & great atmosphere. We didn't have any food but the menu looked really nice. The couple on the table next to us ordered fish & chips, which smelt & looked amazing!

“Good pub food in Mayfair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The Only Running Footman is very near Berkeley Square in Mayfair, London. It is a traditional looking pub with a surprisingly extensive food menu, including daily specials. My wife and I were not adventurous, sharing a fish and chips. The fish was fresh, well battered and not overcooked. The chips were crisp and tasty. There was a good selection of beers and ales. Service was fast and friendly. We were not expecting much but the Only Running Footman exceeded our expectations.

“Had Xmas Lunch there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

very nice location and nice experience. Food was good but my expectations where a bit higher, especially as it was at the upper. We got the trainee waiter which still need to learn a bit. Would go back again but may be not for a special occasion such as xmas menu.

“Great food, atmosphere and most importantly beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

I love these little pubs nestled in between the grand townhouses of mayfair, and this is the best of those.

I have eaten here on quite a few occasions now.

The staff are great and very polite and helpful, nothing more, nothing less as it should be.

This is pub food as it should be, good taste and a plentiful portion. The specials are always a nice surprise.

They do good beer on tap.

The crowd in here are very nice, polite and caught up in there own groups, which is good for mayfair.

Definitely recomend.
