The Toy Shop London - Cocktail Bar Review

The Toy Shop London - Cocktail Bar Review

The Toy Shop is a cool and quirky addition to the leafy suburb of Putney in South West London. Upon finding out that some friends of mine lived nearby, I simply had to see what the fuss was about, so I boarded the District Line for a night of fun...

I came here on a Friday night and had a blast! There's upstairs seating if you want to sit down and catch up with friends, and then downstairs has a lively atmosphere where everyone's dancing. Bar staff were super friendly and happy to help find a cocktail that's right for you. Not to mention the cocktails are delicious!

Great place to dance and drink! Always a good atmosphere! The back bar needs more than one member of staff though! Had a private area which was quickly over taken by other people so would've been good if it was in a different area. Great staff and door staff! Thanks for a great birthday night spiraladdict visited The Toy Shop on 10 Oct 2015

Lovely place but far from ideal for big groups at the back even though there is an extra bar. The layout at the back was a bit of a let down - too many tables & seats, it didn't work at all once people started dancing. Also the music was rather old school & dated unfortunately and extremely loud - we ended up going upstairs to carry on our conversations! Also the bouncers were rather off & unfriendly with people turning up at the door. But the service & cocktails were great, just lacking atmosphere. Shame, don't think will be going back.

This is a lovely venue, with friendly staff and great food and drinks. Top choice that the boyfriend and I loved. The Terrace Bistro is perfect for a chilled, summer's afternoon/evening.

7 of us attended. To start with i will say the food and atmosphere was great! Staff were also lovely. However they were extremly short staffed, waited for almost 20 minutes to order our drinks then another 20 minute to get them. Apart from that it was fun!

14 of us attended for. 30th birthday. The venue is quirky and stylish. Food was amazing and drinks were atmosphere. Will definitely be returning next time I visit London

I have been to The Toy Shop a couple of times and have never been disappointed- the food and drinks menus are both great, especially for the price. Really great fun

Great place. I would recommend this as somewhere you would take your friends who aren't from London, as it has the 'wow' factor. Went here for my bf's birthday on a Sat early evening. Booked online for a table at 7pm. We were all ID'd on the door and it was a bit confusing getting in until the waitress realised we were eating and then shown to our table - there was a separate eating area to the bar area. Strangely, it wasn't very busy in the restaurant so service was pretty quick. Drinks were reasonably priced and food matched that. Really thoughtful menu with a nice mix of vegetarian and meat choices, I had the veggie burger, which looked a bit strange and was quite soggy but delicious flavours. Chips are triple cooked and the slaw is yummy, with added little bits of gherkin in it. Others got the buttermilk chicken and said it was delicious. Portion sizes don't look like much at first but, by the end, we were all stuffed and even left some chips. All food was served in metal lunch boxes, the girls loo's had naked Barbie dolls in a glass panel and all décor was really fun, making the whole experience feel a good level of quirky and novel.

My favourite bar in Putney (I'm a local). Love the decor, the cocktails and the munch boxes. Yummy veg options too. Fun place to go any night of the week.

Top spot. Went with group of girls last Sat for din. Been recommended Roast party for my bday in feb- hope is as good as they said!

10% service charge for asking for a menu and the drink to be brought 1cm to the table. No alcohol in the sharers cocktail. Terrible atmosphere - no music whatsoever. Rude staff. ICE COLD.

This place is an absolute blast! Wandered in for a quick drink and ended up staying all night - brilliant party place.

Agree somewhat with PutneyLocal in terms of delay in getting served because it was so busy but I think that just shows popularity of the place? Could do with more bar staff thats it. Apart from that we had a great time. Read the review here then decided to give it a try. Really quirky and different against the bog standard other putney bars. If it was more central I'd be here every week! Alas it may be a mates birthdays jobby - great place to eat, drink and enjoy a buzzy bar!

As my mum would say, all fur coat and no knickers! Too long to be served, quirky trimmings left off cocktails. Not good value for money

This might be one of the coolest sounding places in London, right now. Can't wait for this to open.
