Evans and Peel Detective Agency Review- Earls Court London

It might only be a stone's throw away from London€™s millionaire€™s playground Borough of Chelsea, but it seems Earls Court has distinctively lacked outstanding watering holes for quite some time. It was therefore with great excitement that I...

Great bar! I love the dedication to the speakeasy theme and the fact an "appointment" needs to be made. Know your story because the detective will ask you all sorts of questions! The food was okay and drinks were great- however it was all a bit pricey for my taste. I would definitely recommend to a friend!

Such a fantastic experience, really fun night, especially the first time you go, but still would go back for more! Cocktails are lovely and staff are super friendly! Would highly recommend!

Best experience. Went for a date and he was definitely impressed. Wasn't expecting them to take the "interrogation" at the front so seriously. Cocktails and food were nice but a bit pricey, but standard for london. Really fun experience with great staff.

Great place! So unique. The bar it's self looks incredible and everyone plays their part brilliantly. Cocktails are quirky and expensive at £11-13 a drink but definitely worth it. We even saw Harrison Ford in here when we came!! Don't forget to prepare a good story to get in though they really do "interrogate"!

Love this bar, really cool concept and delivered brilliantly throughout the experience. Be prepared for your interview on the door! :D Quite pricey but drinks and food are delicious. Dress up and enjoy!

Great night. We came dressed and ready to enjoy. Entrance to the bar from the street and stating your case was fun. Staff were friendly and we had a great time at the bar talking and watching cocktails being mixed. Lighting was great...love the old fillament bulbs. Go dressed and enjoy the ride....we did and the staff were very complimentory. Will definitely be going back... Col Powell & Coco La Rocque

One of my favourite bars in London - I've been three times now and enjoyed each visit immensely. At the start of the second visit we were were asked in the little office reception to describe the case we wanted to bring to the attention of the detectives - leading to a long and convoluted story with some serious plot holes involving a missing brother Which is not how most visits to a bar start! I won't spoil what happens next but rest assured it does end with a drink. The effort to the decor and characterisation also extends to the cocktails, which are very tasty.

It's fantastic! Book it for someone who doesn't know the secret, they will be blown away! Drinks are very strong and quite pricey, but one lasts ages! It's quite tight down there, and I haven't tried the food but I'm not sure I'd like to eat in such a cramped space.

We held a Christmas party at Evans and Peel, hiring out their back room for 50 people. I had visited E&P before with a friend and was blown over by the experience and service so they were my first point of call when a big event cropped up. Mumford and Sons used them for their album launch party (always a good sign) and I had wanted somewhere that was an experience as well as just a great place for food and drinks. Service was impeccable, the staff have personality and you can tell they were hired for that. They're intelligent, funny and polite - making the good cocktails even better. The charade with the detective when you arrive is great, the staff absolutely deliver and make it a really fun start to your evening. Food wise we had a selection of the sliders and they were incredible, american tapas with a twist. Since it was a Christmas party we were served eggnog and chestnuts which was a really nice touch. Cannot rave about this place enough, everything from the case you have to present to the detective on arrival to the beer poured from the radiator. Wonderful, a gem.

This is a pure experience bar and one to really impress your friends. It captures the decade of the 1920's perfectly, the atmosphere is electric, service attentive and delicious drinks, it's pricey but you are paying for the experience of being in this cool london bar.

My boyfriend took me here and I just feel compelled to join the other reviewers here to recommend this bar. It's one of the bars that you will always be taking your friends to, its more than just going for a drink, I wont spoil it, but you are in for a classic night out x

I was lucky enough to get a table for the opening weekend of Evans and Peel Detective Agency and what a fantastic place this is! Based on a 1920s prohibition / speakeasy bar, Evans and Peel totally captures the cool and sexy atmosphere of that time. The main entrance is fairly non-descript just off the Earls Court Road, but this only adds to the intrigue. I won’t give any more away, but once downstairs a much more spectacular entrance awaits, of which the impact is sensational.... The flicker of candlelight, the warmth of the hanging antique light bulbs and the background of 1920s music makes the ambience truly authentic. The surroundings however are only the start. This place really knows how to make a cocktail! The cocktail menu contains a range of old-school classics with a modern twist, but the very knowledgeable bar staff, who infuse their own spirits, will come up with their own creation to suit your personal taste. I’m a particular fan of bourbon and after a brief chat with one of the bar staff I was able to try 3 different takes of an ‘old-fashioned’, all of which I loved (there were some pretty clever infusions going on.) For those who are wine drinkers, the wine list also has everything you need – I was very impressed with the pinot noir, which was extremely reasonably priced. The drinks are served with a range of very tasty small tapas-like sharing plates. Being that I attended on the opening weekend, the menu may well change, but the pork sliders were delectable and you must also try the goats cheese fritters. The pièce de résistance though has to be the smoked cheese cake – very strange, but you can’t help but go back for more! Very impressed and looking forward to returning soon. I thoroughly recommend it! N.B. You have to book an appointment with one of the detectives in advance (don’t just turn up).
