“Good Environment to relax and enjoy”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Took a couple of clients out for a meal close to there hotel as they didn't want to travel far. I was in luck due to having been told in that area of a great place. Turned up at the Loose Box was seated right away which was a surprise considering how busy it was. My clients were from out the country and were not particularly familiar with British food which was a rick on my behalf. thankfully all 4 clients enjoyed themselves. I plan to go back as I noticed they had been closed for refurbishment.

“More Bar Than Kitchen”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

This seems to be an evening magnet for very noisy after office drinking; making it difficult to hold a conversation with the person next to you. On the plus side, the food was very good, and efficiently served. The waiter was friendly, patient and efficient.

“Not for the down-to-Earth or budget conscious.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

There really is nothing special about this bar. Yes, the food is nice, and the beer is well-kept, though the real ale frequently runs out too soon in the evening.

The problem is the prices. They're on a par with far more prestigious West End venues, and in reality, it's just a good bar which serves a few offices locally. My last visit cost me £18.55 for 2 beers, a diet coke, and 4 packets of crisps, which really is out of alignment with the general area.

“As others have said - totally average”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Busy Wednesday evening. Loud but not too cramped. Seated quickly and initial service quite good. Have a food intolerance which they could just not deal with. Ended up with bland and dry food. Service after first 15 mins non existent. Average prices for London. Summing up would say if you are not part of a big party then service will be poor, menu ok but don't expect any special requirements catered for. Opt out of the service charge.

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Good food for some tired Americans. Good burger and soup. Reasonable price. Sometimes you just want a burger, and they had a great one.
