This “friendly” neighbourhood spot with a “tasty” modern European menu has done stalwart service in a Swiss Cottage sidestreet for the best part of three decades. “They have a monopoly for convenience to the nearby Hampstead Theatre”, and serve an “efficient and stress-free” pre-theatre spread. The harsh would say the quality of the cooking can be “so so” – if it was a notch higher, this could be quite a destination.
This “friendly neighbourhood restaurant” in Swiss Cottage, now closing in on its 30th anniversary, is “good if not brilliant… probably the best in the area”. OK, you might not cross town for it, but it’s very handy for the Hampstead Theatre, with a “great pre-theatre menu”.
“Convenient for the Hampstead Theatre”, this “off-the-beaten-track” Swiss Cottage stalwart serves a modern British menu of some ambition, and offers “especially good value pre-show menus”. At other times, prices are “a bit steep”, service can lag, and it can seem “curiously unmemorable” even though “objectively the food is good, and the room tastefully restrained”.
“A mildly posh place, really convenient for Hampstead Theatre” – this backstreet stalwart in Swiss Cottage “lacks buzz” but its cooking is “worthwhile” and very “reliable”.
Bradley’s Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Pre-theatre; good choice."
"The food was very good tonight. It was a quiet night with only a few customers. Normally the place is busy with people dining before going to the theatre, but there was no performance tonight. Maybe that gave the chef more time, but, whatever the reason, it was much better than on our last couple of visits."
"Great place to eat if you are going to Hampstead Theatre (or even if you're not). Really good selection of vegetarian foot, but the fish is also terrific. Very good value pre-theatre options, served efficiently so there is no stress about missing the theatre, but without feeling rushed."
"Nice for a relaxed Sunday lunch - food competent but not over exciting "
