I just love this restaurant. I travel a lot both Nationally and Internationally and have eaten in many restaurants – I still rate The Laughing Gravy as one of my favourites anywhere. It’s not just the food, or the service or the ambiance, it’s all of those together, which seem to have a magic which makes for a great evening . I have returned on many occasions and never been disappointed. My wife shares the same opinion.
We find that we walk in and feel cared for, always met by one of the friendly team who make us feel very welcome. We generally have a delicious pre-dinner drink in the cosy bar which has shelves of books for clients to borrow and take away or read in the bar if they are so inclined. From the bar there is a great view of the restaurant with its gorgeous central domed light set into the atrium –giving a great effect. The tables are not too close together, further enhancing the feeling that they really do want you there to have a good time rather than packing in as many clients as possible to increase their turnover. We have never felt rushed over our meal and the food has always been delicious. Last time I had the asparagus for a starter which was beautifully presented with lemon poached egg, micro herb salad and citrus dressing – a great combination.
I am particularly partial to the pot-roasted corn fed chicken breast and find it hard to resist having it each time. Had it on our last visit and it was as good as ever. It is impossible for me to resist the hand cut triple cooked chips, which taste so different to ones that are just thrown into oil for a quick fry.
Then the desserts. They have all been great, last time I had the chocolate brownies – melted in the mouth!
There is an excellently priced wine list with a good choice and a reasonable price range. Staff are very helpful in choosing both the food and wine.
Whilst I have read a review mentioning loud music, we have never found it so, I think the music adds to the ambiance and atmosphere.
It is very easy to get to from Central London – 10 minutes, Bond Street to Southwark and a few minutes walk – well worth it.
All in all a wonderful find, I guess you would have to be in a bad mood not to enjoy it!
