Recently discovered The Laughing Gravy with my colleagues. Off the beaten track, this lovely restaurant is a gem in quiet Blackfriars area. The atmosphere is smart and relax with a very friendly and helpful staff. The food is excellent as well as surprising. Each dish is beautifully set and has an unexpected and delicious culinary twits.

I had for starter the smoked scallop and crayfish scottch egg, for main the wild seabass with seaweed and pea risotto cake and for dessert the salted caramel mousse with vanilla fudge and a rhum/chocolate ganache filled caramel cylinder. If you're lost in Blackfriars area or simply looking for a nice place to eat after visiting the Tate Modern, The Laughing Gravy is definitely a place to keep in mind.

My husband and I come here for our favourite occasions a couple of times a year, The service is always fantastic, with friendly staff who make the effort to remember us and get us drinks on the house if they've messed something up. The lighting is also perfect and the food is delicious (even if I can't understand some of the words on the menu)! What more could you want?


Lovely interesting food and exceptionally friendly staff; a great secret (until now!)

Laughing Gravy - I've been there at least five times and have never been disappointed! An interesting menu with beautifully presented and scrumptious food. Really friendly and helpful service in a small setting. Part of me wants to keep it a secret, but that wouldn't be fair now would it!

Absolute gem. Selfishly, I'm quite reluctant to make too much noise about this place. But, it would be criminal not to. Fantastic cocktails, outstanding food, great venue and decor, and lovely staff.

Such a great find! We always have a fantastic evening at the Laughing Gravy and is the place we use for both personal dinners and to take clients.

This is the best food in the area! With great staff and great atmosphere. Well priced and great wine list too! You have to have every starter on the menu and they make the best three cheese mac'n'cheese in town. Love this place and have done for the past 5 years!

The Laughing Gravy has a friendly and comfortable atmosphere which matches it's staff. The menu is able to cater for all food requirements and a quick call ahead to confirm was reassuring. The service, presentation and flavours of the dishes served all met with our initial expectation. A memorable evening was made at the laughing gravy, thank you.

Food is wonderful - imagjnitive menue's, delicious food, inventively presented... The interior is welcoming, intimate and cosy, And the people working there are so friendly, warm and so helpful. A real treat visiting this restaurant!

What a gem of a find! Long story short, my wife was on a course in London, I was working in London and rather than try and battle our way back home to Southampton during the Friday rush hour, we thought we'd stop for a few beers and dinner close to Waterloo Station. And Laughing Gravy was where we ended up. It's awesome! The food is sensational. A good price for what is really very fine dining. The selection of drinks and cocktails is spot on and their house conceived cocktails are excellent. The setting is great. Not a huge dining area so very cozy, very romantic and the staff are superb. Incredibly attentive and the young lady serving us was fantastic, very charming and clearly very proud to be working at such a great place! A real credit to the restaurant.
Cannot rate highly enough and cannot wait to go back!!! 👍🏻
