Opened in Spring 2022, a sibling to Fitzrovia's Riding House Cafe (celebrating 10 years of business) and Victoria's Rail House Cafe. Head chef Henry Omereye is combining Riding House classics with some new dishes.
Harden's survey result
“Brilliant brekkie” has always been a star turn at this Fitzrovia haunt, whose attractions are heightened by its stylish setting and “friendly” staff. For more substantial meals, it can seem “competent, but not worth a detour”. It celebrated 10 years in business by opening a sibling in a former branch of Carluccio’s in Spring 2022 (no reports as yet). It’s set within Bloomsbury’s love-it-or-hate-it Brunswick Centre: a fine example of late-1960s modernist (brutalist?) architecture.
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Riding House Bloomsbury Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Really pleasant eating experience. 4 of us tried the small bowls with extra skewers. All really tasty and reasonably priced. A carafe of valpolicella for £30 meant we ate well with a glass of wine for £25 each. Will return!"
