Named after London's famous 19th-century master builder, this gastro pub offers high quality British fare with an innovative twist. Situated on Elizabeth Street, the premise features two floors styled in the Georgian and Regency period and boasts three working fireplaces. The ground floor offers a bar menu and upstairs a more intimate dining experience. They also serve all-day Sunday roast.

Thomas Cubitt reviews
Mediocre service and shabby food. Bag was stolen there last week - manager became very defensive and unhelpful. One to avoid...

I live in Wales and on my occasional visits to London try to avoid the shabby pubs in that city with high prices and very poor service.
However, on my last visit I visited the Thomas Cubitt pub. It was reasonably priced by London standards. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and there was a good atmosphere about the place. I would recommend it to anyone.

I love this place. From the great food upstairs to the fantastic Sunday roast downstairs to just grabbing a drink after work. The food is always delicious and the staff always friendly. Great mojitos too! I have been to numerous gastropubs around London and nothing comes close to the Thomas Cubitt. Can't recommend it enough.

I love the Thomas Cubitt. I have never been to the restaurant upstairs, but my partner regularly takes his work mentees there for lunch and assures me it's delicious.
As for the pub downstairs, well, I love having Saturday or Sunday lunch there. It's good to know that the chicken in your Caesar is free-range or organic and hasn't been raised under cruel conditions.
Starters and main courses are varied and tasty. My one gripe is that they try a little too hard on the desserts but don't quite manage to hit the right note. And a fairtrade chocolate pud would be nice too!
It should be a wonderful place to go now that it is not smoke-filled. Try it! You might just like it...

The customers are a weird mix of rough and posh. The food is not that great. Don't see what all the fuss is about.

Truly delicious Sunday roasts, beef and Yorkshire pudding, and very tasty desserts. Can get a bit hectic and smoky, so it's best to get a table in the non-smoking section. The staff are on the aloof side, but the food and the pleasantly traditional decor more than make up for it.

Great place. One of the best gastropubs I have been to. The service was slow, but if you go when it's quiet it's a really nice experience.

Terrible service. Far too busy for the (less than friendly)staff to handle. Made to feel like an intruder as not a local.

One of my favourite gastropubs in London, especially for a Sunday roast (the lamb with mint sauce is sooo good). The atmosphere is wonderful too. They don't take reservations, so you can drop in at the last minute, which is great.

A really great pub - never eaten upstairs in the restaurant but downstairs is always buzzy and it's a nice place to go on a hot day when they throw all the huge windows open. Great fish & chips and white Bordeaux.
