Attached to the Radisson Blu, this is a perfect bistroesque restaurant which has friendly and helpful staff, and serves good food at attractive prices, especially for this part of town. Our server was Miroslava who couldn’t have been more helpful, efficient and genuinely caring. We only had 25 mins before attending a function in the hotel, so she speedily arranged... More

We had a wonderful lunch at this Scoff and Banter location, on 4 April, 2017. The service was courteous and timely. The decor was bright and casually elegant. I had the fish pie and it was served with a great combination of peas and kale. My partner had a delicious burger. The attentive staff ensured that all was well. Also... More

I booked an afternoon tea for two people in order to treat my mum who was visiting London. Although they experienced some internal issues to provide my gluten free options (previously confirmed via email), the person in charge managed to sort it out quickly and without drama. Also, when they understood that it was a special occasion for my mum... More

A breakfast buffet that is worthy of a champion. Not only a great variety, but quality in every tiny aspect; from perfectly baked croissants to the fresh berries - everything delightfully tasty. And an attentive service if you´re busy.

Good place to eat before theatre at Dominion. Good food and lovely cocktails. One meal in our party was not cooked at the same time as the others so one person had to wait for food . This was disappointing but just a mistake. The restaurant manager recovered the situation well .

We were staying at the adjacent Radisson hotel so this was a convenient choice and not busy. A fairly simple menu but good basic food and served hot and promptly. Not over priced for London and the area and nice service.

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.
