    Amazing food and the ambiance was ace ! Just thought the service could be quicker . Could be less focused on making sure everything is ready for the next customer and focus on the customer you have at that time .

    Myself and my partner had an okay time at The Old Compton. We went for the bottomless Aperol Spritz . Just after we ordered that we were told we had to order three substantial things on the food menu. We asked why and we were told that “The police were called the other week because people were getting too drunk.” We went to order a side and starter but were told we needed to “order more”I think this needs to be made more clear for future customers so there isn’t any confusion beforehand and maybe not tell future customers about incidents about the police. It doesn’t set a good tone for the evening. Apart from that the Aperols came out quickly and the food was nice.

    Service and food was very good, and they were very accommodating with a request for a table change. It was busy and very noisy. The atmosphere was therefore great, but I wouldn't recommend it for an intimate dinner for two!

    Love OCB. Right in the heart of Soho. It’s a fantastic place to while away a few hours watching the world pass by in the centre of the greatest city on earth. When the lights come on the wonderful characters come out to play which makes OCB one of our favourite places to eat and drink. The food is excellent by the way ????

    This is my fourth or fifth visit to the Old Compton Brasserie and it has been excellent every time. The atmosphere is always buzzy and very friendly. The staff are so smiley and helpful and the food has always been tasty and well presented. The space itself is beautifully designed. I love it here and would highly recommend it for cocktails and/or dinner.
