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.

My Experience at The Old Bailey last night was truly remarkable.

The service was excellent and all the staff were really friendly and helpful.

Our food was so tasteful and the meat was so tender definitely one of the best ribeyes I've ever had.

100% plan on going back in the future!

Main meals good, quantities satisfying. Service excellent - friendly and food arrived quickly. Desserts we had were a little too rich for us (frangelico pudding and skillet cookie) after our mains. Nice, buzzy atmosphere
