I have been here a few times with friends and boyfriends. Food has always been good. Tasty roast beef. Friends loved the bread and butter pudding. Would recommend.

We had a wonderful dinner with kids. Very good service and delicious food. We had own peaceful place to eat. We did't need to wait for food. And we had a good service all the time.

good service and the set menu was fresh and filling and sufficiently interesting. Had chicken and advocado followed by fish pie and kale. Drink on the house too! but presumably this is not normal...

We booked a Set Menu Meal for two. The restaurant is very stylish but lacks atmosphere. Service was efficient but not particularly friendly. We both had prawn cocktail for starter which was tasty and well presented but only four prawns! We had chicken and fish pie for main course which was well cooked.

Description
In the heart of literary Bloomsbury and close to the British Museum, Scoff & Banter combines a smart sports bar showing all the live action from the Premiership, and a great restaurant serving innovative modern British food, or simply dishes from the Grill. The interior features cool marble floors and comfortable leather chairs. On the walls specially commissioned artwork gives a modern interpretation of the Dutch masters. In the bar the bites and shares menu offers a selection of spicy Far East influenced dishes. It is also a wonderful place to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea. Scoff & Banter Bloomsbury is very popular for pre-theatre dining, being a minute away from the Dominion Theatre on Tottenham Court Road, and just north of London's Theatreland.
