After booking roadhouse on a whim I was a bit worried for 5 peoples different taste.
What can I say a lovely find and we all had a great time. Basic food choice but plenty of it and cooked well. Waitress was helpful and friendly.
Not for people that like noise while eating as music was playing the whole time.
Never experienced this sort of a bar before but will definitely return.

Food was mediocre. Cold nachos with the starter and Luke warm chicken main course but the main problem was the very loud bar staff. They were continually shouting to each other and jeering. Throwing around cocktail shakers which would then crash on the floor. Like a bunch of kids in the playground. No wonder it was half empty inside.

We have not dined here for a couple of years: it used to be a firm favourite. The menu is now less extensive but the value-for-money is still excellent and the location is ideal for a pre-theatre meal, since it is in Covent Garden near many West End venues. Our one previous grumble was that the background music used to be played over-loudly, so that conversation was difficult but this seems no longer to be a problem: note however that later in the evening there may be live music and a larger crowd, so quiet cannot be guaranteed.

Went with my sister and a couple of friends for a small hen do. I had the chicken under the brick and it was really good, cocktails were amazing as well but we were slightly disappointed by the fact that the band only played for just over 30 minutes.
One of the reason why we chose this place was to enjoy some live music, and it was disappointing only having live music for just over half hour.
Overall is a good place to spend the evening, but quite loud, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you want to do some conversation.

I have visited the Roadhouse on numerous occasions over the years, but I must say that on this recent visit, it was by far the best experience I’ve had in an American joint outside of the USA.
Better than my experiences, for instance, at places like Smollensky’s on the Strand and Sticky Fingers (the fabulous Rolling Stones joint in Kensington), both in London.

It was a Wednesday night and so very much enjoyed their Mon - Thurs 5.30 - 10pm Happy Hour. ( 2-4-1 on the rocktails). My very refreshing and fruity Zombies went down very, very well. Tasted like a fine rum punch with added pomegranate syrup.

The food was absolutely superb! I enjoyed some tantalising Tabasco Honey wings to start. The flavour was just right, the meat very tender and delicious skin. These drumsticks were very chunky.
Then came a sensational chunky grilled salmon main. The fish was grilled to perfection, again with a very tasty skin and a fabulous consistency of tenderness in the very nice slightly oily meat. The gorgeous pomegranate quinoa made it special with a slight tang and moistness. The Courgette hash brown was ravishing as a base. Tasted like the most delicious potato fritter you’ve ever had. Al lightly doused with a flavoursome white wine and lemon sauce.

As if that wasn’t enough, the waitress was one of the nicest we’d been served by. Very welcoming, friendly and bubbly. I think her name was Julia and we had a really good banter and laugh.

I even ventured onto the stage to sing with the excellent rockaoke band. Such fun!

All in all, a very enjoyable night was had!

Highly recommended!

Service was great and the bbq wings were so yummy but the nachos were quite bland. I can’t really comment on the mains as I didn’t really get to enjoy it as I was so full from the starter.

This was a last minute destination for a friend’s birthday dinner. It was perfect for an informal dinner which is what we wanted. The food was delicious and the happy hour on drinks was a bonus.
There was a live band from 10 30pm and they are really good.
Overall it was a wonderful experience. Will definitely go there again.

Me and my mum Used to come to this restaurant a lot. Was very shocked at how small the menu was this time around. Literally just burgers and chips and a few starters. The waitress was new and never knew anything we asked so clearly had no training whatsoever just kept repeating I’m new I don’t know. Also felt like the cocktails had gone down hill. It’s a shame as the food that we did get was lovely and I love the atmosphere.

This is a great place, good food, good service, good atmosphere and friendly staff.
Got there at opening time, so not busy. The menu we were given didn't have a great deal of choice, however, we easily found something we liked which had very generous portions and piping hot!
2for1 on the cocktails which had to be tried and again they were very nice.
Service charge is automatically added which is something I personally don't like as I feel it should be my choice if I give a tip or not. I know you can refuse to pay it, but that isn't something I would do particularly as the service was good.
The only disappointment was after when I realised there was a menu which offered 2 courses and a cocktail for £17 and another offer which was 50% off the a la carte menu - these weren't offered or shown to us.

Having said that, it hasn't put me off and I would definitely go back again.

We attended this venue on a really busy Saturday evening on the build up to Christmas. The place was buzzy and packed out but the service we received was still incredible. All staff we encountered were attentive, polite and couldn’t do enough to help us. The atmosphere and live entertainment is amazing. We will continue to go back and will definitely recommend!

Server forever asking if we wanted more drinks when we clearly had not started 2nd drink(241 happy hour). We booked as birthday treat and watched several tables get a birthday cake/candle, we weren't asked despite mentioning birthday surprise. Then we were asked to free up the table as the next booking apparently had arrived. We moved only to watch our table remain empty! Total shambles.... Despite this the venue was vibrant and buzzing. So, we would go back probably just for drinks and music. Disappointed.
