Description

Storming with the success of their Hoxton pop-up, The Dolls House adopt a dose of more concrete inspired cavorting as they take the reigns of what once was Islington's House of Wolf; transforming it into not only a lovingly hushed replica of their Hoxton kick-off, but a whimsical three floors of fun.

Playful and proud, the continued 'Roald Dahl-esque charm' finds a home in three Islington floors. Boasting signature illustrations and a lush neutral palate with flecks of colour, The Dolls House is split between the ground floor Parlour, 2nd floor Library and Dining Room, and a 3rd floor Ballroom.

Food is one of the main frolics to be enjoyed at The Dolls House, with a menu that correlates with the fantastically simple and charming interiors of the venue. Please your palate with the likes of 'pigs head croquettes with romesco', or 'Dead Dolls burger with fermented horseradish aioli, truffled pecorino & onion marmalade'. It's not only the food menu that tailors to a cool craft, cocktails at The Dolls House boast a punchy yet simple charm, as guests can indulge Pisco Sours, Negronis and Old Fashioned. Liquor laced whimsy.  

This place rocks at the weekends so bring your dancing shoes!

Unfortunately we really didn't enjoy our visit to The Dead Dolls House for bottomless brunch. We had booked this brunch through Timeout to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Having been seated by a member of staff, within 20 minutes were moved to make room for a large group that didn’t even arrive for the duration of our visit. Despite confirming our voucher information multiple times over email a member of staff interrupted our visit to ask for the voucher information twice (which is especially unreasonable considering I’d been clear this experience was a birthday present). All of us tried different dishes but across the board the food was wholly underwhelming, portions were small (with a side of bacon looking more like two lardons) and nobody came and asked if everything was ok with our food. In fact, once our food had been served, it felt as though we no longer existed in the restaurant at all. I had emailed the venue a few weeks ahead of our booking and asked if there was anything special at all they could do for my friend’s birthday, whether I could arrange a small dessert to be served to her, something small but making her visit more special than a standard visit. I was really saddened that my email was totally ignored and on the day of our visit, not one member of staff raised this with us let alone asked us if we’d like to order anything else after we’d finished our brunch. Maybe we were given slightly sub-par treatment because we’d booked our visit using a Timeout deal, I don’t know but one thing is for sure, we felt unimportant during our visit. Such a shame as I’d been so looking forward to vising The Dead Dolls House and a special occasion calls for a bottomless brunch, in retrospect just not this specific bottomless brunch. visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 23 Apr 2017

Food was pretty good, but service quite slow. Need to flag someone down even though they are floating around. Mimosa's come premixed in jugs which were too sweet and the bloody mary's are inconsistent if you're there for the boozy brunch. visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 23 Apr 2017

Dead Dolls House was fantastic! Our server was lovely and even though we were using a Time Out offer the bottomless mimosa jugs were always speedily refilled. I had the baked eggs with a side of chips - I would have liked chunks rather than slices of chorizo and crispier chips, but overall it was delicious. visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 09 Apr 2017

It was great. It would have been cool to be able to try one Bloody Mary as part of the bottomless part of it (I think you can only pick one drink option, so can't try the other). Food was delicious and service was good. Lovely atmosphere! visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 08 Apr 2017

Went for the bottomless brunch on Saturday with a Time Out offer and had a mixed experience. All three of us ordered the chicken and waffles and were really disappointed with the food - the chicken was inedible and both that and the waffles were clearly reheated. Came with one tiny chunk of overcooked bacon and the toasted sourdough side was cold and unappetising. The other options that I saw being delivered to other tables looked a lot nicer - wish I had opted for one of those. I ordered a flat white and it arrived as a black coffee with frothed milk - when I questioned it I was told: 'that's how we make them here'. Other than that the staff (apart from one - see below) were friendly and attentive - the bottomless mimosa was always refilled before we reached the bottom. The long-haired guy working front of house was a little rude - we tried to order some drinks with him and he told us to ask one of his colleagues but didn't make any effort to alert any of them that we were looking for assistance. Just a minor point but it was a little frustrating. As I said - a mixed experience. I don't think I'll go back. visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 08 Apr 2017

Lots of positives and a few negatives - Positives - Very generous with the brunch drinks Lovely venue Nice atmosphere Very reasonably priced Negatives - Took 15 minutes before anyone came and offered drinks Table was laid out weirdly, had to change it in order for everyone to see each other Food wasn't amazing, had to preorder from a smaller menu than the one we saw on the tables when we arrived. All in all, lovely venue but think it struggles with larger groups. Would definitely go again but not in a group of 13. visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 08 Apr 2017

Good atmosphere and worth a visit if you're in the area. We went for bottomless brunch, which was nice, but the food was quite dry and my friend who had the bloody Marys had to keep asking for a new glass. Also, thought the food was slightly overpriced! But overall a nice place to go and I imagine a great bar in the evening. visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 02 Apr 2017

We had a fantastic experience for our wedding day! we were greeted by a lovely sign outside with our names on it and a big congratulations. We found the staff to be really helpful esp Emily the organiser who went out of her way to make the big day special. We had our event upstairs in the ballroom and it was lovely. the place was decked out really nicely and the food was really good and plentiful! No problem with accommodating a gluten free guest either. So if you want a stress free event at a cool non-pretentious venue then I would choose the dead dolls house for your wedding/event for sure visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 16 Mar 2017

I recently threw my wife a baby shower in the drawing room and it went really well. Emily was really helpful during planning, and everything was prepared as discussed before. The bartender we had dedicated to the room was a star. She was super helpful and readily avalable to take orders. The food was amazing, we mostly enjoyed the chicken and waffles. Prices are reasonable and location is convenient as well. Parking was available down the road, and street parking on the side roads after 1:30pm. Will return just for the food! visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 25 Mar 2017

This second visit to the restaurant was excellent, and well-organised. We had a Bottomless Brunch option with 5 of us. The service was fast, the very good food, and drinks always topped up. Even though we had finished our food within the first 1hr 15m (for a 2 hour turn around), our drinks continued to flow well after eating.

We had an amazing time at my sisters' bridal shower at Dead Dolls! She absolutely loved it. We all did! The food was great and the staff were lovely. Zara, Nadine and another gentleman working with Zara in the room (apologies we did not catch his name!) were all so lovely. There was a delay on Upper Street the morning we went and I felt like everyone dealt with it marvelously! Nadine informed me straight away and pushed the booking back by an hour to accommodate us. Zara and the gentlemen were great, really friendly and just overall lovely customer service from them both! We had the Drawing room which is a great space and there was around 20 of us. The booking was very easy to arrange and I liaised with their manager Emily who was a delight! I would definitely recommend going here! visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 25 Feb 2017

Food was great, barman was great on his own serving 20 people. Sound system was awful, dodgy cable which muffled and cut the sound. Room was like a sauna as the heater was on and couldn't be switch off until they realised you could from the mains. Would of been great if one of the tables was cleared to create some room after we ate. visited The Dead Dolls House Islington on 17 Feb 2017

Thank you for your feedback. We have since got the cable replaced so speakers are working fine along with the air conditioning. Hope you'll come back for another party!
