Square Meal Review of The Riding House Café ?

This kooky and trendy diner ‘trots on’, playing to Fitzrovia’s peckish hordes all hours of the day, and delivering catch-all food in an immense open space that looks like your eccentric granny’s oversized front room – complete with stuffed squirrels, giant frilly lampshades, retro seats and nostalgia curios. Easy comfort food is the deal, from hot breakfasts through to health-conscious salads, Sunday roasts, small plates and stomach-filling classics. It’s hardly ground-breaking stuff, but there’s plenty to enjoy and applaud, from crisp chorizo hash-browns, spiced pumpkin fritters, partridge terrine and the ‘triumphant’ soft-shell crab with XO mayo to ‘sensational’ bone-marrow burgers, schnitzels and steaks. Otherwise, join the spree for top-notch cocktails at the rambunctious bar. The mood is incorrigibly playful, although staff are ‘supremely knowledgeable’.

    The Funky Truth :: The Riding House Cafe

    Riding House Café (R.H.C.) is a self-styled modern all-day brasserie, and of course the day starts with breakfast. R.H.C.’s brekkie menu looks great – it’s why my office were looking at going here in the first place – an extensive selection of simple staples like porridge or pancakes, thorough to the Full English and on to classics like an Arnold Bennett omelette or Eggs Hussard. It’s all very thoughtful, like someone has taken care to consider what to offer the masses. This approach is time well spent really, as this place can, and does, get very busy, occupying a prime site on the corner of two roads heading to the most central part of Central London, in the heart of Fitzrovia. A place needs to stake its claim to remain competitive around these parts. So what does R.H.C. do to differentiate? Well, let’s start with what it does to appeal to London’s fashionable foodivores. It calls itself a ‘café’...

  2. Post #1 of the birthday feasting duo (I wanted so very much to make this a trilogy, but popcorn at the theatre just doesn’t cut it as an eating out experience). I’d heard good things about the Riding House, and figured it would be worth a try, 20130807_104838 I was a little thrown by the taxidermy squirrels, while C needed significant comforting (she carries monkey nuts on her at all times in case of squirrel encounters). The rest of the decor was very pleasant – perhaps they felt the need to shake things up again...

    Brunch etc. :: Breakfast at the Riding House Cafe

    The Riding House Cafe sports a style I can only describe as gentlemen's club chic, all distressed leather and dark wooden panelling - but with huge windows letting in plenty of light the overall effect is far from dreary, and it's a lovely place to catch up over a meal or drinks...
