Located just a stone’s throw from Oxford Circus, The Riding House offers an escape from central Soho, no matter whether you’re looking for a laissez-faire lunch with friends, or somewhere to get some respite with a coffee.
A restaurant of two parts; on one side you’ll find a pared-back, light space with hardwood flooring, exposed brick and plants dotted throughout the room. It provides an area for somewhere to unwind, with one large sharing table and seats at the bar, ideal for a leisurely brunch with friends or a lunch besides your laptop. Then if you walk through to the dining room, you’ll find something a little grander, with plush seating, dim lighting, and a number of separate booths and tables available to book. This area is better suited to a lunch or dinner in groups, where you can settle in and work your way through the extensive menu.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a special brunch menu available at weekends, it’s always a good time to head to The Riding House. For breakfast you'll find anything from a ‘burgerdict’ with beef patty, poached egg, tomato and hollandaise on a muffin, to pancakes with toasted marshmallows, coconut clotted cream, white chocolate and banana infused maple syrup. The brunch menu follows a similar theme, with the addition of some more lunch appropriate dishes such as a smoked Cajun stew and Sunday roasts that offer something a little different from tradition. Think slow-roast pork shoulder with pineapple chutney and sour cream dip, or truffled portobello and sweet potato Wellington with porcini cream.
The dinner menu offers a combination of small and larger plates, sides, and a number of sweet options like hot chocolate brioche doughnuts with coffee caramel.
To drink, there’s a selection of wines from across the globe, as well as a number of beers and cocktails to ensure a tipple for everyone's taste.
