The Riding House Cafe is a bar and restaurant in Fitzrovia that combines a retro interior and artistic vibe to a luxurious standard.

Taxidermy squirrels and orange leathered sofas go surprisingly well with the smart dressed staff and long beautiful wooden bar with funky turquoise bar stools. A chic bar and restaurant interior is perfectly matched by the modern foodie orientated menu. The relaxed atmosphere makes it an attractive place for a breakfast date or for loosing yourself in the Sunday paper. Service is great whether you're gossiping with friends over tapas-sized smaller dishes or having a full meal in their dining area.

The music is as laid back and arty as the general vibe, with a leaning towards contemporary indie serenades. This is a great bar, just off the beaten track by Oxford Circus, a favourite for foodies and cocktail enthusiasts who are too hygienic and appreciative of good service to go to Shoreditch. The Riding House Cafe in Fitzrovia is a brilliant bar fusion of class and modern chic.

We hosted a long event in The Stables room and everything was really nice. Great staff to work with. The room was a little noisy because it was close to a door to the outside and the kitchen. Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-09-26

The food was absolutely delicious however the service was some of the worst I have experienced. We had pre-ordered our meal and yet were still waiting for nearly an hour for our starters. I ordered wine and the wrong bottles were brought out and opened without checking with us first. The service was so bad at one point that I ended up pouring wine to our guests as they had empty glasses. It was disappointing as the food was brilliant but I would not book this again for a group booking. Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-08-17

The food was delicious but our waiter had an attitude problem. He kept spilling drinks, grabbing cutlery and overall was far from courteous. It might have been a one off so go for the food and hope for better service. Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-07-14

We all had a fantastic time at the Riding House Café on Saturday. The food was delicious - we had the Feast Menu and all the guests were raving about the Lobster Lasagne! We were really looked after by the waiting staff and are recommending it to all our friends and family - what a find! Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-06-24

We booked the private room for a corporate party- and chose this one because we knew we would be able to put on our own music etc. Although the food was very good, the duck was served with little to no sides. Vegetables or potatoes were highly missing, a Pak Choi not being enough to feel satiated. Bad plate choice as well, impossible to cut the duck in a bowl ! Regarding the evening, a member of the staff decided to lower the music and told us that "We don't know what is happening, it doesn't seem to work properly anymore", and it was only after we complained that they admitted and changed the settings back. Service was amazing, food delicious, too bad for those low points that weight a lot on an expensive evening ! Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-06-08

Overall we had a great evening. The food was very good and the atmosphere just right. A few aspects could have been better - we were 14 rather than 16 people in the end and one of those people was allergic to dairy (I put this in my initial requirements). I was assured that he would be able to eat some of the dishes on the sharing menu but in reality he couldn't eat any of them, so he had to order a la carte. We were then charged for 16 people, even though only 13 actually ate the shared menu - given that we were on the sharing table we assumed that you are used to numbers fluctuating up and down based on how many people enter your restaurant for a sitting, and it was clear that we were a couple of people short in our particular group. So it was strange to have to foot the bill for 16. Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-04-08

Attentive, friendly service. Food was a little slow to come out (we only had a party of 11) but it was very nice. For a brunch menu, it is A LOT of food (two courses is what you get), so bear this is mind if you're going for dinner later on in the day. We were in the private room downstairs, which is quirky but the music played was quite random - would've been nice to have had a choice to pick from. Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-03-18

We often book the Stables at the Riding House Cafe, and the food is always great. The service usually is, too, but this time the server kept disappearing for quite some time and we had to wait or go looking for her if we needed something. At the end, she disappeared completely so I had to ask someone else to prepare the bill. Our previous times using the Stables had much more attentive service....

Great meal, friendly helpful staff, just wish there wasn't an obligatory service charge on both food and drink bills - we would've left a tip anyway but just don't like to be 'forced' to pay one. Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-02-25

Thank you very much for having us. The service was excellent however there were a few small issues with the food. For vegetarians, £45 for a starter of hummus and crisp bread followed by mac n cheese seemed a bit steep. I am not vegetarian myself but I feel that the two in our party were a bit let down on Monday evening. Additionally, although it was delicious, the food was quite heavy, everyone was very tired at the end of the evening and went straight home. I think the menu perhaps could have better described the food. Other than that it was great, thank you! Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-02-20

The lady serving us in the Stables (charlotte) was fantastic, and made the special occasion even better. She did it all on her own but we were never waiting for anything. The room was perfect and looked brilliant. However, we had pre-booked in advance and our menu options had been completely disregarded and we were told we would need to re-order, meaning I spent my time the days before chasing people for menu options for nothing. We also were due to eat at 2pm, but due to reordering our starters didnt come until 2.45 making us late for the rest of the days activities. The pheasant they had all chosen was no longer an option, and they had to re-order the chicken option - one of which came pink in the middle and had to be sent back. The hot salmon starter was chosen by several because it came with Quails eggs - but there were no quails eggs to be seen and we were told it was a mistake with the menu which was disappointing. Charlotte sorted out a free bottle of prossecco for the inconvenience. Visited Riding House Cafe on 2017-02-18

One of my favourite hang outs in London, has a real buzzing atmosphere, sit at the bar and just work your way through the cocktail list and forget about your day. its quite a media crowd, very hip, and does a great gourmet food menu as well if you get hungry.
