Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were very impressed with the service and all our menu choices. Loved the informal atmosphere which completely hit the brief I had been looking for to celebrate my 50th with family. Represented very good value given the location and we shall return, thank you.

“Great service and wonderful food”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We booked last minute for 4 adults and our 3 year old for a 7pm table and the place got full very quickly. We opted for a few cocktails and the espresso martinis were really good. Although we didn't have deserts that did look very good but the main was excellent especially the steak and the corn fed chicken with an amazing sauce. The service was excellent and they know how to look after you and the whole team look really smart and it's this attention to detail which makes the whole evening so much better. Even better if coming by car after 6pm you can make just around the corner so for a raining night we could make a quick getaway. We will certainly be back more often

“Food far from laughable...”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

After turning to trip advisor to help plan a weekend's dining in London, I was pleased to find the Laughing Gravy Bar & Restaurant. Although it's off the beaten track (for a second time London tourist, helped by Google maps) this bar & restaurant is a gem of a find! Great value for money, great service and most of all, great food! Although I was having a meal with my partner and enjoyed the ambiance, I would have liked a little more light. But that's based more on personal preference. All in all, a must visit venue if in the area.

“Marvellous in every way”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We visited The Laughing Gravy during a trip to London after reading reviews on Trip Advisor.

It was simply superb. The place is a tucked away and feels cosy and intimate. We were greeted by friendly staff the moment we stepped inside. We were Travelling with another couple and asked if it was ok to have a drink in the bar first. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. They sat us in a lovely sofa area and looked after us. We all had cocktails which were delicious.

The place has a brilliant buzz and vibe and was nicely busy - mainly with Londoners it seemed - obviously the place to be.

We move into the restaurant which was beautifully lit with candles and amazing lighting - a huge glittering ball hanging from the middle of the room.

Food was divine. I had pâté to start that was tasty and beautifully presented followed by the most tender, juicy lamb and then a chocolate brownie oozing with decadence.

Everyone in our party agreed that the food was incredible, the service laid back, relaxed, but attentive and genuine.

Overall we couldn't fault this place and would recommend without hesitation.
