I'm not a foodie, so I'm unused to food putting me into a mood, but after a lousy start to date night, I wasn't in high spirits when arriving at Lady Ottoline. But after the superb food and service and charming atmosphere, I couldn't help but leave content and glowing. The Caesar salad is outrageously good- thick bacon, tender chicken, a poached egg atop and homemade-tasting dressing. It was packed with perfect textures and flavour - not a wimp's salad! My partner said his angus burger was the best he'd tasted and I even cheated on my vegetarianism without regret. This place is one of those little havens that you're proud of yourself for finding- it feels like a hidden gem. Let's hope it stays that way and keeps its unpretentious and charming atmosphere.


Went here for a friends birthday and it was great. Had a large table in the pub for Sunday lunch and we were looked after so well. The roast I had was fantastic and the service was friendly and attentive. Can totally recommend.


I liked everything about this restaurant (I got a table in the pub area). The food was excellent and the staff was so warm and helpful. They especially were great to let me try several different wines (and ultimately suggesting a moderately priced Nero d'avola) that complemented my meal perfectly. Great experience and even though I am in London for work for only one more week I am definitely going back before I head home to the states.


Went here for dinner last night and it was great. Staff where friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We had salmon and partridge to start and lamb rump and sausage casserole for main. Can highly recommend all of them. Will definitely be coming back.

Sadly it's going downhill after a great start. 5 visits to the Lady O since opening, my first 2 visits in nov were fantastic, albeit small portions. At the 3rd, we left after waiting an hour without food. Staff were v aplogetic. At the 4th, the food was average. the 5th yesterday was terrible – pork belly arrived 90% fat, white & wobbly, barely browned on the top – surely it should have been cooked slowly to render down? A replacement dish of venison casserole was more like a venison soup with just 2 drizzled small pieces of meat in it. The decor & service are great, but food that's now worse than brewery gastropub chain? I hope they replace the chef, otherwise I doubt they'll last long.


Beautiful experience, great staff, great food in an elegant setting. Went there New Years Eve, based on recommendation from Time Out and other sites. Travelling from US, they made every effort to get in touch with us when there were questions about the reservation, making sure our NYE plans were kept. All in all a fantastic experience for us.
