It's crap - overpriced, uncomfortable, and the staff are rude and arrogant. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Went to the club for a relative's party and thought staff were incredibly up themselves considering they are after all meant to be serving the patrons. Met Keira Knightley though, which made up for rude staff!

Please, if you know what's good for you, don't eat here. The food is ridiculously overpriced and is absolutely dreadful. I went once but would never go there again. I don't think I would recommend Century to my worst enemy.

AVOID THIS CLUB! We were taken there by a hustler. Once we made it clear we didn't want any 'extras' or expensive drinks, she slapped one of our group (without reason) and the bouncer made threats. We left, vowing never to return.

Great club with great members. Shame about the politics.

Love this haven in Soho. The space is beautiful and the staff are amazing, always friendly and helpful even when treated with total disdain by members/guests (when people get drunk and behave badly, why is it that they want to blame the food or the staff?) I frequent many bars and clubs in Soho; in Century I always get a smile and a warm welcome. Best of the members' clubs in the area.

I love this place! I've been taken a few times and it's always a glamorous night, filled with celebs (Madonna was there last time I went, and Jennifer Aniston the time before that!). The staff have always been more than lovely, and the food is fantastic. Much nicer than Soho House or Groucho.

I have been a member at Century for several years and always have a fabulous time there. The staff are pleasant, charming and beautiful. Although I get the impression that, if treated rudely, they wil not be submissive (rather than being a negative, I believe this adds to the club's charm and individuality). The new restaurant manager is also a delight - always a smile, so rarely found in members' bars!
Keep up the good work. Don't let the bad comments get you down!

I like the place! Restaurant has improved loads since a new manager took over a couple of months ago.

I went and also found the bar staff to be the most miserable, unhelpful bar staff ever!

I have been taken here a couple of times by friends. Some of the roof-terrace staff are very grumpy, the food is very expensive for such average quality and the white wine is warm. Why anyone would actually pay to join I really don't know, there are so many better free venues nearby.

Great place but the bar staff are incredibly miserable and rude. They let it down.

Food not very special - mine was cold. Staff indifferent rather than rude.

Not pretentious at all, and great value considering location and opening hours.

Hilariously appalling formulaic trash. No imagination or real elegance. Nice roof terrace though.

Lush venue, beautiful decor, beautiful food, beautiful staff. Though a smile surely wouldn't be too much trouble from a couple of members (not all). There's pretension... and there's plain miserable!

Bit over-crowded and loud. But a nice-looking space and a fun place to have a noisy drink. Prices par for the course for this sort of thing.

I enjoyed Century so much. I was invited to a celebrity's birthday party there and have never forgotten it.

New restaurant excellent, but too many members. Staff need to remind themselves they're in the service industry.
