We had such a great time and we had the NICEST guy hosting us. The food was so yummy and the service was excellent. Really, it was our lovely lovely waiter who made it even more so enjoyable. I wish we knew his name as he was a true gem. We are coming again on NYE and are even more looking forward to it now. We also hope we get to be hosted by the same guy, but everyone seems so sweet and friendly so I am certain it will be another wonderful night. Thank you again! Visited The Elgin on 2017-12-17

I eat at the Elgin a lot and the food is always great. However, we booked a table for 10 for a holiday dinner which was pretty disastrous. The menu was not the one we had agreed and had fewer choices. They were not set up to cater for large parties and did not have enough staff. The service and the food were awful - the turkey was chicken, the potatoes over cooked and the greens under cooked and only a few of us got the stuffing, the sausages and the chestnuts that were on the menu.. Hopefully they will have figured out how to handle a full restaurant by next year. Visited The Elgin on 2017-12-12

The food we had was delicious. The problem was that we had all chosen dishes with avocado but there were none left. Our helpful suggestion that avocados could be bought from the greengrocers next door in a minute was treated with disdain so, to have the meal we wanted, which we had been offered, we had to go and buy them ourselves. This unimaginative rigidity and the low temperature in the restaurant on a very cold day is the reason for 3 instead of 5 stars. Visited The Elgin on 2017-12-01

The food was pleasant, although rather strange menu and not the one on the website that attracted us. A pleasant but rather amateurish feel about the service. The main reason for the low score was that an older gentleman came in and started watching television on his ipad at annoyingly loud volume and the staff did not ask him to turn it down. Anything goes, which will suit some customers more than it did us! Visited The Elgin on 2017-10-19

The thing that makes The Elgin so special (in addition to the fact that it is the only establishment that can be considered trendy and buzzing in all of Maida Vale) is the staff. They are efficient, friendly and knowledgeable about their products (be it the very interesting menu or their beer/wine selection) all the while feeling like friends you have known for a long time. And indeed the fact that a lot of the staff have worked there for years speaks for itself! We had a small get together with family and friends and were very well looked after as indeed we always are!

Staff were extremely accommodating as always - didn't bat an eyelid dealing with quite a significant last minute change to our group booking - beautiful people in every way! Excellent selection of craft ales from small London breweries on keg (which changes regularly) and bottles/cans and excellent food. We've had a monthly booking since April for our work footy team and it's been a great post-match experience every time. Visited The Elgin on 2017-08-10

faster service - several times it takes long before you get your coffee when busy (like 10 minutes wait). Staff is young, diverse and happy and engaged what is nice. Food tastes good, nice menu but in my opinion very overprices for its portion (one slice of toast with topping for 9 pounds without sides....) or a pain au chocolat for 2.50! come one.... Coffee - if you finally have it - is made with good skills and tastes great, also great selection of wines. Cool interior, family friendly. because of speed of hot drinks and overpriced food 3 out of 5. Sorry....They could easily get 5 if improving these two! Visited The Elgin on 2017-07-31

Reply from The Elgin

Thanks for your review. We appreciate that it can sometimes take a little longer to get a coffee in the busy periods, we always try our best to get these out as soon as possible and with a consistent quality. With regards to food pricing, all of our ingredients are responsibly sourced from producers that we trust and work very closely with. Our prices reflect the quality ingredients that we use. Hope to see you again soon. Best, Team Elgin

The Elgin: Trying too hard (June 2017) – Gastropub, Maida Vale The Elgin, a seemingly on-trend gastropub, has come a long way from its existence as a boozer for old soaks - the format in which I first visited this venue some twenty years ago. Sure, it has improved in many ways and is much loved by the yummy mummies of Maida Vale (babyccino, anyone?), but a group of us who recently visited on a Sunday lunchtime couldn't help but feel singularly disappointed. Bring back the old times, one might almost be tempted to exclaim. By way of context, our group comprised five adults and two children. We had also booked our table in advance and received email confirmation to this effect. Disappointment number-one came in the form of an announcement from our server that we would be forced to return our table by 3pm since another party had requested it after this time. I remonstrated and highlighted that I had not been made aware of this fact when I booked the table and indeed my email had informed me that we had the table until 10pm. Our server responded by saying that the emails were 'automatically generated,' a poor excuse, one could not help but feeling. Begrudgingly we were allowed to keep our table, but the exchange certainly augured badly. It's all well and good to have a nice trendy venue with craft beers and exposed brickwork, but getting service right should really rank as a top priority. Disappointment number-two came in the form that several of the dishes on the menu were simply not available: no squid starter and also the somewhat implausible assertion that the Elgin had 'run out' of cheeseburgers before 2pm. Given its location close to several food stores, it surely would not have been an insurmountable hurdle to have obtained the basics required to prepare more burgers. Now, another gripe: how many five-year old children willingly want to eat 'wild garlic-infused' chips? Not many, in my experience. Bottom-line, the menu at the Elgin had a distinctly un-child friendly feel to it. Another failing in this respect was the uncompromising 'no' offered when we asked whether it might be possible to provide a half-portion of Sunday roast for a child. When the food we ordered came, it mostly underwhelmed: the roast was bland. and the broccoli side (at £6) thoroughly tasteless, to provide but two examples of where we found our meals lacking. All-in, given the pricing (not cheap), one would - and should - expect a lot more from the Elgin. My recommendation: by all means come here for a beer, or even a coffee/ child alternative, but don't linger - you might not be even made welcome to anyway... Visited The Elgin on 2017-06-18

Reply from The Elgin

Thank you for your feedback. I apologise if you feel our service fell short of your expectations on the day. Thank you for raising the point of us doing children's roasts, we are now looking into doing this. With regards to cheeseburgers, we source all of our meat responsibly from our own trusted suppliers and we would not be willing to compromise on that. If you would like to discuss any of the issue raised in your above review please do not hesitate to give us a call. Best, Cara & The Elgin Team

Our overall experience was disappointing as despite trying to accommodate an off menu small sized meal for our 20 month old with allergies, completely the wrong dish was brought out. We then had to wait for his food to be re-made whilst he became extremely grumpy and frustrated compacted by the fact our own meals were in front of him on the table. When in finally came it was full of chilli even though I had clearly asked for it to be without. He then rubbed chilli into his ear and eyes so was fairly irritable for the rest of the meal! In addition we both ordered the roast sirloin. It was fine. But it certainly wasn't worth the price tag and sadly wouldn't draw us back next Sunday despite the really friendly waitress and bar staff and super relaxed environment. I'm not usually one to leave a negative review or complain but on this occasion we were really dussappounted as there was so much potential Visited The Elgin on 2017-03-05

The Elgin is a beautiful lounge, and somewhere I often visit. The staff are always helpful and accommodating and the vibe is great. The reason I reviewed my trip there as two stars was because the booking process was poor. I booked a table for a large group for Christmas dinner two months prior only to show up and be shown a table in the downstairs general area. The staff apologised and were helpful but the relaying of information between the booking team and the in-house team should be improved. We were also told we had to pre book if we wanted the Christmas menu which was not relayed to us before-hand when I specifically asked. It also took 2 months to get a reply re: dietary requirements for one of our diners. A few other hiccups with orders throughout the night didn't help either. Would I visit again? Of course, because it really is a nice establishment and i've never had a problem there in the past, however the booking process could definitely be improved. (I wasn't going to leave a review after our experience there but I received an automated email from The Elgin asking me to leave one so I wanted to give back some constructive criticism).

Been to the Elgin numerous times since I discovered it a year ago, it's a great place with good food, brilliant drinks and staff whom you can't escape a chilled chat with while at the bar. This time was no different - in fact this was for my birthday, and everything about arranging a booking was easy and flexible, especially thanks to the staff. Keep up the good work!

Great. Reserved a table in advance so we had a good portion of the back area. The leather sofa is in really bad shape. Hard to sit on as on one side only its like sitting on the frame the cushion is so worn. Apart from that service was great, ambiance great, not full of under 21's. Visited The Elgin on 2016-10-15

Cara and her team took excellent care of us, despite some of our guests being a total mess by the end of the night! Great space, huge compliments from all attendees on the food, and a great range of drinks available. They really went above and beyond for us and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again.

It was a great evening. The food was great, the waiters/bartenders super friendly and they had reserved for us an area at the back which worked perfectly well for our 30+ group! Thanks again!

The staff here were incredibly accommodating at very short notice for a party of 15 of us. Food and drink was great and they also helped put together a spread of nibbles. Will definitely be back!

I discovered the Elgin for a friend's 40th birthday on 7th May and would like to highlight how great our barman was. I'm not too sure of his name (I did tell him he looked like James McAvoy, hopefully this will help identifying him :)) but what he was absolutely outstanding: the friendliest barman I ever came across, always a smile on his face, very patient, very accommodating - and with a bunch of drunk people, it's quite admirable! Had a great night, and will come back!

I hired the Elgin for my 40th birthday party and was delighted with the venue and the service received. The planning was perfectly managed by Vicki and Denise and on the night, the bar staff couldn't have been more helpful (special thanks to our personal bar man for his energy and enthusiasm on the night - I think it was Adam but my memory is a little blurry!). I can't recommend the Elgin highly enough if you are looking to plan a party in a stylish venue with a fun / lively atmosphere. Thanks to all the Elgin team for making it such a special night!

Love the Sunday Roast. Get the whole chicken it can feed 3 people very easily. One of our favourite meals in London! Visited The Elgin on 1970-01-01
