Love the hydrant, great food and drinks, friendly staff and general good vibe. Never have to wait long at bar is a bonus. Only downside is tried to book a table and contacted them via the site many times but never ever got a response. So something to work on.. visited The Hydrant on 21 Oct 2016

Fantastic service and food. I visited with 40 students who were all thrilled to bits at the care and attention shown to us. The Hydrant staff arranged for us to have a section of the upstairs area with our own till point and staff to make ordering and payment as easy as possible. We all left very happy, I look forward to booking with you on our next trip to London. visited The Hydrant on 18 Oct 2016

We did not get our reserved table on the mezzanine as it was closed and there was no Kore information about it other than the staff were not made aware of our booking and they'd get us an alternative table to fit all of us in our group. One of us had capaccino returned three times as it was cold, finally the served her the right temperature, she wanted more but was worried to get similar experience with a cold cappacino. Another one of our group kept on getting either her food or drink taken away without finishing or being asked if its okay to take it. The service is very slow and the food is not for the hungry lot, its more of bitings. visited The Hydrant on 15 Oct 2016

We had work leaving drinks at The Hydrant. Was a fantastic bar; great modern space, good atmosphere inside and with people also spilling out onto the road outside even. Its very popular by the looks of it! We had a great waitress who tended to us regularly to ensure we were well watered. Canapes came out very timely as well. Definitely a big thumbs up for service, atmosphere and location! Good for work drinks, evenings out with friends in the week. Would be interesting to see if as lively on the weekends...can't see why not.

We did book the private room upstairs for a business breakfast and meeting. We really love the atmosphere of The Hydrant and the private room is just perfect! Breakfast was delicious and so the service, absolutely spot on! I would definitely recommend it to others. The Hydrant is a very relaxing place and the staff is very friendly. Thank you! cristina7 visited The Hydrant on 07 Sep 2016

Went there with friends for drinks and meal on a Tuesday after work. Staff helpful and friendly. Always a nice surprise for a busy London bar. Good beer selection and lovely cocktails. Burger and chips very great! Christine visited The Hydrant on 10 May 2016

I have a severe nut and dairy allergy - so finding somewhere that can accommodate me is tricky - they Hydrant are INCREDIBLE! Amazing staff - who have made me feel so welcome - nothing is too much trouble. The food is always delicious - great atmosphere - a good wine selection and just a great place for both business entertaining and leisure - a great date night spot! Thanks for being so great! Back there again for lunch today! - 4 times in a week... cant get a more glowing report than that! helenburkesmith visited The Hydrant on 13 Nov 2015

I organised some end of project work drinks here having never visited the bar before. I was thoroughly impressed with everything at the Hydrant; food, drinks and particularly staff attentiveness (thanks Cath, you were amazing!). Everyone had an excellent evening. I cannot fault this place! hannahp4 visited The Hydrant on 06 Nov 2015

Used to work close to Monument and found this place to be a good refuge for a quick bite to eat at lunch. Can't reallly comment on drinks but they do seem to have a strong choice of beers

I've been here a few time over the last month and what lets this place down is the level of service, once they've addressed this I would say its a decent enough pub that serves some lovely food.
