Along with siblings in Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia (Riding House Café), Rail House Café is the group’s Victoria outpost where it brings its legendary brunch plates, international sharing dishes and signature cocktails to another cental London location. This spacious venue features a huge dining room with a variety of seating, while a bar with plush stools and views into the semi-open kitchen offers diners a spot to perch with a cocktail and a few sharing plates. There’s also a pleasant terrace area at the front of the restaurant perfect for alfresco dining during the summer months.

Riding House Cafés are famous for their brunches, and you can expect a menu of unique dishes on its weekend brunch menu at this Victoria site. Think malted deep dish pancakes featuring toasted marshmallows, coconut clotted cream, white chocolate and banana maple syrup, as well as all sorts of hollandaise-based delights, such as its Burgerdict featuring a dry-aged beef patty, poached egg, special hollandaise, tomato and a muffin.

Rail House Cafe also serves an all-day menu throughout the week featuring an inventive selection of global sharing plates. Smaller dishes might include crispy oyster mushrooms with mustard miso dip, or salt cod fritters with citrus mayo. While a range of bowls, skewers and larger plates comprise the main section of the menu. Think pea fritters with crispy kale and chickpeas, squash, tahini, yoghurt and Lebanese cucumber, or bream with curried Jerusalem artichoke cream, crisps and herb oil.

A dedicated afternoon menu, meanwhile, features grilled flatbreads, skewers and sweet bites for when something small but tasty will do.

To drink, a global wine list spanning reds and whites to rose and orange wines caters for most palates, while signature cocktails, beers, ciders, spirits and smoothies complete the offering.

Rail House Cafe -bit overcooked!

Wonderful decor, staff great.  However the roast pork lunch was overcooked resulting in dry meat that was tough to cut.  Vegetables great.  My companion's salmon on a skewer had a similar problem being rather dry.  Also thought there were not enough wines to choose from at about £25 a bottle - resulting in a very expensive meal.  Not sure I would recommend the Cafe without pointing out dry meat problem .........

Great casual bite
I visited RHC with a group of girlfriends for a Thursday night dinner post work. It's wonderful to see the transformation that the Nova development has brought to Victoria. Lots of eateries and a buzzy atmosphere with workers having post-work cocktails and socialising. Lovely! The restaurant itself offers casual/informal dining in a relaxed environment and our waiter was very attentive and offered great service. The bar has a nice feel to it with plenty of seating but my only slight neg would be that I found the menu a little limited. Albeit all healthy options and I would imagine a great spot with anyone with food allergies.
