A great place to celebrate my dad's birthday! We were all happy with our meals, the service and the atmosphere. The portion sizes were enormous and the food cooked well. Very comfortable seating and a col spot on a boiling hot day! I'd definitely go again and recommend anyone who would like a hearty pub-like meal.

From the moment we arrived the staff fussed over us which made me feel important to them. The meals were large and very enjoyable I would definitely recommend the Londoner to everyone.

Fabulous. Great food - huge portions. Attentive and friendly staff. Dining room completely British, even down to the double decker bus salt and pepper shakers. We were seated by the window, right next to the prettily decorated Christmas tree. Definitely recommend. Thank you.

What a gem in the heart of Taradale's main street! Friendly welcome from front of house upon arrival and we were impressed by the menu. Plenty of choice including a kids menu. Ordered the lamb hotpot and mash which was piping hot and a massive meal. Partner had the nachos which were big enough for two! Kids fish and chips went down a treat. Recommend to anyone looking for a hearty meal. Loved the touch of UK decorating the walls. Will be back!

Third visit to Londoner and had another awesome dining experience. The seating was comfortable as was the dining room temperature.Even though we had first table at no time were we treated any other way than first class. Friendly staff and delicious food served in a timely manner. Our favorite place to dine. We'll be back again very soon. A++++

It was a great time catching up with our daughter and son- in- law before they head off for 6 months overseas. The meals were superb. Our daughter thought her curry meal was far better than any she had in an Indian Restaurant. All the meals were beautifully presented and there was plenty. The waitress was so lovely and friendly. We love going there for a meal. Why would be bother going anywhere else.

I loved this place! The theme goes well with the food and the service was spectacular.
The chicken schnitzel was incredible, and so filling that I couldn’t even fit in dessert!
This one is definitely a must-go-to. I’ll be booking again soon (I have to try their desserts!), that’s for sure

My partner and I had a lovely meal last night. We started with the cheesy garlic bread which was just yummy. I followed with the steak, mushroom sauce, jacket potato and salad. He had the pork with bubble and squeak. Both our meals were perfectly cooked. We then ended with the delicious chocolate brownie. We were well looked after by Sue.Will be back 10/10

Last night we discovered another wonderful restaurant, The Londoner in Taradale. I'm so pleased I joined up with First Table as it gives us the opportunity to try different places we wouldn't normally go to. The place was a delight, beautifully presented and so very English, the staff were welcoming and the food delicious. I selected the sirloin steak with a hefty piece of garlic butter on top, a baked potato covered with lashings of sour cream and a well-made salad. We added a shared side of beer battered onion rings, & boy was it good. Both meals were of a generous size and attractively presented. I was full after finishing, but I had to try the sticky date pudding. A good choice I'd say as I love dates and it was homemade, not like some restaurants that offer Aunt Bettys instead. Hubby had the apple pie it was the reason after all that we chose that particular restaurant as all the reviews raved on about it. He loves his apple pie and this one was homemade to boot, anyway he wasn't keen to share so all I can say is he was not disappointed. I had a good peek when he wasn't aware, it looked so good I licked my lips and thought maybe I should have chosen that. Still I can always return and try that next time.

Wow!! Amazing food and service. My family and I had an excellent time at Londoner. We were greeted as we walked through the door, with the staff knowing we were the First Table diners and treating us almost like VIP's rather than people who were were there for First Table. My Sirloin Steak special was delicious, and cooked perfectly, which is a must when ordering a steak at a restaurant. Something you expect but isn't always the case. Definitely not a problem at Londoner. My wife had a Lamb Hot Pot which she really enjoyed. My two girls both had the kids cheeseburger and chips. There were pretty quiet which is always a good sign that the food is good. The sizes of the meals were generous as well. A great meal out, we will be back for sure!!
