About Hare & Tortoise Putney
Having an Iconic frontage with a large window and open kitchen, Hare and tortoise Putney has spacious table layout which is perfect for family gathering or cooperate event. You can also enjoy our energetic kitchen stuff bustling while waiting for your take away.
I used to go to this restaurant a lot a few years ago. It used to be good. I found it to be run down and dirty. The toilets were absolutely disgusting. You probably need to shut this place down for a month for a deep clean and renovation.
Very decent portion of food , plated nicely and tasty too! Quick service.
Food was good (flavours and portion size) and good value for money. Venue wasn't busy during visit, but service was on the slow side. Had to wait a reasonably long time for someone to take our order and pay for the bill.
When I arrived you didn't have my reservation but as you weren't busy, still seated us.
Food was great, felt a little disregarded by staff maybe because I was younger.
Usually I can't fault the H&T but on this visit the Chinese Greens weren't up to scratch. They were obviously past their best and were bitter to taste. They didn't get eaten. I volunteered some feedback to our waiter who thanked me for the feedback. Sadly no gesture of replacement for compensation. It was disappointing. I wasn't particularly complaining but there seemed to be no effort of an apology etc
Usual consistent quality and good service. Definitely recommended.
The service was really nice. The atmosphere was ok. However I was a bit disappointed with my food. My ramen tasted like miso, and I don't like miso. I had same dish in different location of the chain and it was really tasty there.
Fab place to catch up with friends!
Saturday evening the fish was super fresh. The food is always very good but there are times, as in most sushi restaurants, the freshness is not quite as good as others. For the price it's remarkable that the standard is, in general, so high. I have been eating here regularly for years.
Great food, once ordered food came out very quickly
Love the food and the staff our always nice, very good value for money! I do feel that the atmosphere in this branch isn’t as cosy as the other ones though, but I would definitely return.
Lovely food and reasonably priced
Great food and service!
Some wall needs plastering & maybe re-painting.. Please don’t tell me it’s fully booked if we can see 2/3 tables are vacant.. After serving food, waitress never come back to asked if we need anything or tap up our drinks or no one offers tea, coffee or pudding..
Good food, average service and atmosphere
Food as ever superb. Service speedy and efficient
Although I had booked in advance, when we arrived we were met with a member of staff who said they didn’t have my booking, I showed my email confirmation, she huffed, disappeared, came back and spoke to another member of staff, them muttered something about my name being different to what they had and took us to a table that she spilt so we could be seated. We won’t be returning due to the rude staff, which is a shame as we like the food and have been coming for 7 years
always excellent value for money.
Food was great in both quality and variety! Service was a bit slow, but to be fair the place was very busy (Sat night). Atmosphere was a bit stark; felt a bit cafeteria-like. But the food more than made up for it!
Myself and my family eat at a Hare and Tortoise once every couple of months - either Kensington (mostly) or Putney. The food is always pretty good. Last night I had the worst service at the Putney branch, so much so that I refused to pay service charge (something I haven't done for a long time). The Kensington staff are always very friendly but the Putney crew last night looked miserable (apart from a guy called George). They didn't even clean the table after we had finished the main course and brought desert into the middle of the dirty dishes from our main. I had to ask them to can up and was given a very dirty look before they cleaned up. I would be happy to recommend Kensington but I will not be rushing back to Putney.
Great place to eat in Putney. Food reliable and tasty. Definitely a winner!
Surroundings very basic but good food. Shame there was no coffee available.
