absolutely th worst venue i have ever been too for service. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE…. DISGRACEFUL STAFF WITH EVEN WORSE MANAGEMENT. APPALING DESPICABLE AWFUL.
After spending well over £200 on drinks and tips the barman proceeded to get my order wrong. I asked him to correct it and he called me a paing in the a.. after throwing my drink away,
I did complain to him and was rudely spoken to like trash by the rest of the bar staff even after tipping them all at least £5 after every order
I tried to explain to the manger who blamed me for everything and was awful. Basically i ended my nights in tears, never been so upset.
If you want to vbe treated like a peice of trash especailly after spending all your money then this is the venue for you.
WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVERN EXPERIENCED.
DISGUSTED APPALLED DISGRACED AND SHOCKED.
I WILL BE ADVISING EVERY PERSON I KNOW TO AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE
ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING SERVICE WITH AWFUL STAFF AND EVEN WORSE MANAGEMENT
Always a fun night out at Roadhouse, they seem to get a good crowd out during the week too! They have a house band which tend to get the crowd going without fail and the DJ’s keep the dance floor rocking til late. I think this is one of London’s top bars!
Okay place, nice vibe good cocktail list (if a little expensive) but TERRIBLE christmas dinner; the turkey was so dry it was inedible and the gravy and stuffing was so salty it was awful. I don’t think i’d order food here if i visited again as a few people in our group did not enjoy theirs either, however it was a good night with live music. Also as soon as the bill was paid we were asked to leave our table immediately perhaps a little rude.
Always a great night out at Roadhouse, particularly with cocktails on 2for1 or a bit cheaper during their happy hours (varying times throughout the week). They do some tasty little bar snacks as well as bigger food for the more hungry, which you can either eat at one of the restaurant type tables, or at one of the smaller tables with high stools around the stage and dance floor.
They have fantastic music here, lots of local (and far away - last night when I went they had a band from Australia) bands playing live music. My favourite group that play here is The Tide, but whatever or whoever your favourite, they list them all on their website and so you can see when you want to go based on who is playing.
Bartenders and security are nice and friendly, and if you go on the right night (last Sunday of every month I believe) you can see some flair competitions behind the bar, with bottles and glasses flying everywhere.
My only criticism is that if you're not buying during Happy Hour the cocktails and other drinks can be a bit expensive, and cocktails are so easy to drink that you end up spending loads, but that's the aim of the game, isn't it?!
Apart from that, a solid club, great décor inside, perfect for a good night out with a couple of friends or with a larger group.
If you like live bands with typical rock/indie (KoL, Kooks, ect...) followed by a DJ playing usual latest hits and a relaxed, studenty/afterwork mix this is the place to go.
The security can be on and off, but usually are cool.
Roadhouse is an absolute institution in Covent Garden. It has great music, live gigs on some nights, an amazing cocktail menu, and best of all if you are a true Londoner you will go during their 2-for-1 cocktail hours (usually 5-7pm), and have their food on BOGOF.
Their drinks and food are not necessarily the best in London, but for the price paid during the offers (it is a tad bit expensive otherwise), and for the atmosphere, location (perfect place to start before heading on to other clubs/lounges in the area), you really can’t beat Roadhouse!
An amazing value for the guys is one of the massive sharing platters. Normally £32, with a TasteLondon card or 50% off promotion it is only £16, and for that you get 2 steaks, 2 chicken breasts, calamari, fries, salad, and other stuff! Bargain for only £8 each.
Decent enough “Hard Rock Cafe” style bar/restaurant. Can get busy during at the weekend, but empty during the week. When Obama became US President, we went here in search of some US themed fun - and found nothing :S so dissapointment for me.
The comments are true to the fact that roadhouse can be over-crowded on fri and sat night. But that is the case with the majority of decent bars in central london. There are different types of pubs, bars and clubs in London that cater my needs. Roadhouse for me is a place to start off during Happy Hour. Cocktails usually cost around £6, but during happy hour (between 5.30 and 7.30 Mon to Fri), two cocktails cost £4.50. The service is very quick and staff are friendly and cocktails contain an acceptable amount of alcohol (not like belushis which do TERRIBLE COCKTAILS)... But do not try to spend the night there.
Start there and move on to somewhere a bit more lively and less crowded. you could try the gardening club which does happy hour until 9pm….
Covent garden is not the best place to be on a fir or sat night. It is full of mediocre bars and pubs which are over-crowded and over-priced.
Another evening out with work the roadhouse defiantly cantered for everyone.! We have vouchers for food which was handy, standard american grill food, burgers, hotdogs, nacho’s etc.! Which was nice.
Then the live band who we’re amazing, followed by music until 2am!!
Cocktails are to die for, great evening out! What I can remember anyway!! :)
