not stiff, but very relaxed - and the food is really good.

Smallest remark is that my rib eye steak was not perfectly hot when it arrived at our table. Otherwise all was perfect.

Off the beaten track, on the South bank, in walking distance of Blackfriar Bridge/station, this neighbourhood style restaurant caters principally to locals. Good service, nice food (nothing super fancy, just good, but with a nice level of sophistication). Nice brasserie type of relaxed atmosphere/noise level. We believed good value for money (and not that expensive).

This was our first visit to the Laughing Gravy. Great name to start off with, but it was hard to fault once we got there. The staff were young and friendly, the wine was fantastic, the food delicious and the atmosphere is fine for a slightly special evening but still informal and not at all stiff. It's also well located near the Southbank centre so if you are going for a concert or play, you can have an early dinner and then walk over in about 15 minutes. Really good.

We had a spectacular meal at The Laughing Gravy. The food was superb and the service was fantastic. I was a little worried taking my friend out who is a Restauranteur, never an easy challenge! She had an amazing time and is taking the duck & rabbit scotch eggs idea back to her restaurant to put on their menu! Thank you for a truly wonderful evening.

We live relatively close by so walk to laughing gravy often on the off chance rather than booking. We have been for both lunch, dinner and sunday roast. Almost always it is exceptional and i have one of the most delicious things i have ever had. It is pretty inside for a pub, modern farrow and ball grey with white fairy lights and a glass airy roof, it has lots of nice books and papers and the drinks include local brewaries and distillery drinks. The staff are always unpretentious, a good laugh and proud with what they do. It is a fantastic place to bring overseas visitors and if your local a good source of local pride. I would travel across London for the desserts and drop in if i worked by. Having said that it is a pub so would i travel across london for a burger? maybe not. It does nt try and be anything it isnt. It can be a little bit pricey; more restaurant prices than gastropub but like hawksmoor they use the VERY best ingrediants from borough and local top food suppliers.
