I will be open, in that I know from previous experience that that The Dispensary is a fantastic establishment. My two guests views are more impartial. They were very impressed with David's cooking, The service received was of a very high standard. Being in our 40's and 50's the choice of background music was most agreeable. As for value for money the house red was astonishing in its quality when combined with our choice of meal. You would expect to pay a lot more for that quality.

Overall a fantastic day, but a very, very warm room! A fan or some air con would have been appreciated. But the food was incredible, and the venue itself is beautiful. We can't believe we work over the road and have never discovered the place! We'll definitely be back :) Thanks for everything

The food, atmosphere and service were amazing. And the pleasant surprise of the reasonable price, meant the group who had travelled from all over the UK were surprised that London had such a reasonably priced gem. I am sure to be back frequently whenever I am hosting out of town guests.

Our large group from the BHBIA came here for drinks after a challenging competition day event - we wanted to give the entrants a chance to wind down and socialise. It was a great venue for this. Vibrant atmosphere but still quiet enough for people to talk to each other. Great service from Annie and the team - our pre-ordered drinks were ready for us and ongoing service was great. Also very good value for Central London. Thank you!

Dear Annie, David, Phillip and all of the staff, Thank you so much for making my 50th birthday celebration so special. Afternoon tea in a wonderful private room upstairs for 26, second to none, professional butler, friendly and attentive staff, we felt thoroughly looked after and will come back at the earliest possibility. You are a rare independent gem in the city. Thank you so much. Erika

Lovely place, good food & service. Only drawback was (and this is common with a lot of restaurants) that the tables were too close together and therefore can be very noisy!

i really enjoyed the food here was a very nice experiance. However i did find that the fish had a bit too much pepper on the fish which took the taste away from the dish, and my chicken had too much garlic, as there was plenty of ohter flavours there to enjoy. All in all it was a good experience and the quality of the food and presentation was very nice.

Our server recommended us the pork and mushroom pie, and then a pork burger with jalapenos and apricot mayo. Her recommendations were spot on and her demeanor was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Despite arriving 50 minutes late for our reservation, and after the 9 oclock close-time for the kitchen, nothing was too much trouble either for the chef or the staff. Great food, great place.

Great atmosphere, staff were really attentive, even if they seemed a little run off their feet (maybe understaffed?). Decent selection of cocktails and drinks, while the food was really excellent - just a little surprised that they couldn't produce any vinegar to go with the fish. Look forward to a return visit.
