For a Monday evening it was absolutely packed and very lively! Quite a bit louder than expected so not the place for a quiet chat - also made it hard to get the waiter's attention a times. Nevertheless the food was tasty and well cooked, wine reasonable price. Deal of glass of prosecco & 3 courses from set menu good value in central London and enough choice to satisfy all 3 of us.

We had our first brunch and it was good, I would not say very good.
The food was good and was on time. The place was a little bit loud but that's everywhere you go these days.
The waitress was lovely and was moving fast. So overall it's a good place

9 of us went for the Drag Brunch and it was fantastic, such a good atmosphere! We ate, drank, sang and danced. The two drag queens were brilliant and really interacted.

The food was tasty and the drinks were flowing

We will definitely come back!

Pork belly tasted delicious although a fairly fatty cut. Table had been double booked so had to move after the main course and have dessert by the bar. Bit disruptive but dessert was given on the house for the inconvenience, without needing to ask.

Booked for a pre-show meal after being attracted the previous evening by the festive decorations. Food and drink was good, staff attentive and the place was lively. A good Friday evening that set the night up well.

Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was spot on and the restaurant clean and well maintained. The loos were astoundingly clean! The service was efficient but it didn't make us feel hurried.

Lovely food and pleasant service, spoilt by the very high volume of ambient music. It was so loud that we could only hear each other speak with difficulty.

Food was ok but a bit inconsistent - one poached egg had a hard centre, overly sweet sauce on the avocado toast, texture of sauces was unusual. Service was pretty incompetent - confused staff, slow, orders incorrect, fairly rude. Food isn’t good enough to outweigh the poor service so won’t be back.

Arrived early, was accommodated immediately. We sat in the loft area. Great food and a cracking bottle of wine.
Would thoroughly recommend, I’ll be going back very soon myself.

OCB is a vibrant restaurant; even on a Monday night it was energetic (read - rather noisy/loud). That said, the food, particularly the vegan burger) was great. The only thing letting my review down was the staff - we waited for some time to be greeted by the host (and the one member of staff that did acknowledge us ended up disappearing with no action) and the server just lacked attention to detail... asking if we required any condiments to our meal, checking in at any point during the meal or even bringing the correct menu for dessert.

Lovely meal that would have benefited from a little attention to detail from the waiting staff. Forgotten sides that turned up after the main course being the main issue. Silly things that could have been so easily avoided. Aside of that tasty food and drink l.

Good location for a pre-theatre-lunch. Typical pub food with good quality. Service could be improved. A bit noisy ambiance for the generation over 40.

Great atmosphere. Pre Theatre menu good value. Service OK but could be a bit quicker with drinks and orders, especially as the table is only available for 1.5 hours. Would recommend.

First time visit to Old Compton Brasserie. The food was really good and the OT deal of 3 courses with a glass of prosecco was extremely good value. Whilst the waiting staff were friendly, it seemed a little disorganised as we were asked for our order by more than one member of staff and asked how everything was, more than once. The starters (mushroom soup was delicious) arrived promptly but the mains took a long time to arrive. So much so we were running out of time to get to the theatre and had to hurry along the deserts and bill. The noise level was too high for our tastes but some people would like the buzz.
