We had a brilliant meal at the Old Bailey. The steaks were delicious, as was the jambalaya and pulled pork sandwich. We tried the desserts and the chocolate pudding and the choc chip cookie were super yummy! Serving sizes were large and the table waiters were friendly. The atmosphere was great too - lots of people milling around for a drink/meal and watching the televised sport. The front of house/bar manager was confused to see us when we arrived and said that we didn't have a booking so I was glad that I had brought a print out of the first table confirmation. He later confirmed that office staff didn't let him know about the booking. Fabulous meal though and we would definitely go back!

Food was alright. It's just a pub,not a restaurant so you can't expect too much. The food we had was good though. We ordered a garlic bread to start because someone told us that its delicious but we never got that. The waiter was nice about it though. Apologised for forgetting it. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Lovely service and great pub food. A fun family evening and the chocolate pudding and the choc chip skillet desserts are definitely worth it for the chocolate lovers. Cheers!

Great evening out! The service was outstanding even when we took forever to make up our minds. The menu was nicely varied. Starters were delish, and mains were equally delish. We will definitely be back!

Had a great meal with five of us dining, four using First Table, and the last person at full price. We each had a drink, we shared two starters, and then had a main course each. Great food, and good service.

Delighted to find we had a reserved table with a street view. Introductions and service was friendly and attentive from lovely Irish Chelsea. We were both hard pressed to decide which was better with the generous portioned fish and chips with tangy coleslaw and the prawn jambalaya. Our desserts, yes we know it is only lunch but when does one get the chance to enjoy rich decadent hot chocolate pudding which won hands down over a chocolate chip warm cookie. Menu has so many tasty options, we certainly are going to need to come back soon.

Busy, noisy lively spot. Ideal for catching up with friends. Dress code is tidy but not over-the-top.
Great selection of monteith beers, good selection of wine.
Menu a good selection but not excessive numbers of choices. Well cooked and presented well in a pub style.
The guys steaks were cooked exactly as they asked, always a priority.
Waiter was friendly with a sense of humour, and was efficient as well.
Would come here again.

Excellent service and excellent food. We were served as soon as we walked in the door and the food came quickly. It was hard to choose from the menu because it all sounded so delicious. Would happily have paid full prices too as they are very reasonable. Definitely will be dining again!!

First time trying First Table, and first time at The Old Bailey. Everything went great. We arrived a bit earlier than expected, and they had our table ready.
We had a couple of drinks first, and then the OB burger, the Philadelphia steak sandwich and the chocolate pudding for dessert. Service was nice and friendly too.
We'll definitely be back, and use first table again.
