“Great cosy place for dinner”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We escaped from the rain into the Laughing Gravy and weren't disappointed. The atmosphere was awesome. Felt warm, cozy and cool all at the same time. The food was good without being great and service was quick and attentive. Would recommend trying the cheese burger.

“Great place to meet friends”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

This is a short walk from Waterloo and is a great place to meet friends for either lunch or dinner. With its warm atmosphere, friendly staff and great food it is the perfect combination.

“Top restaurant!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Visited the Laughing Gravy on a recent trip to London and went on the reviews from TripAdvisor. We were greeted by one of the waiters - luckily we had booked (recommended) as it was very busy. After a full day of xmas shopping, myself and my partner craved some good hearty (not healthy) food... opted for steak (with an amazing jus) and one of the tastiest burgers ever - accompanied with equally amazing chips. There is a good selection of wine (with some great descriptions to help you decide). We rounded off our feast with the cheeseboard and port.

There is a gorgeous light feature - we thought it was just a xmas thing, but it is there permanently - as it should be as it would be a shame to put something so beautiful in storage.

Highly recommended and will be returning for sure.

“Uncooked meat”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

So yes it states that the meet is medium rare on the menu. But when I had th me Angus Burger it was raw, uncooked and just rank. I felt physically like throwing up.

Think the prices are high compared to what you get.

“My favourite restaurant in London!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I've been to this restaurant before with friends and had a fantastic time. Last night I returned for my office Christmas party, and once again the service and food was faultless. The chef regularly changes the menu to use seasonal food, and the Christmas menu did not disappoint. There is a great atmosphere too, with a lively bar area and spacious dining area. Helpful and friendly staff. And great value. Can't wait to return and would not hesitate to recommend.
