The Elk Bar reviews

By Matt P.

The most overrated bar in Fulham. By no means the worst, but far from deserving of its reputation. It's expensive and lacking atmosphere. The interior feels oppressive and the staff are not friendly. You could do a lot better than this.

By Howard S.

Went here for friends birthday, hadn't eaten since breakfast so spotting the menu ordered the Squealer which was big! Needed more spicy taste but hit the spot, bar staff the best i have come across in London, well done Elk! Made our night!

By Dave P.

Avoid on football days staff serve at centre and far end of expensive and poor served in plastic....altogether unenjoyable far better matchday pubs for quality and staff awareness and friendliness....i would have given this pub zero stars if that option was available

Been in a couple of times now for a "quick drink" on the way home from work. Always seem to end up staying for a few more. Took it as being more of a cocktail place (great Mojito's) but tried the food the other day and it was actually very good as well. Staff are always really friendly and nice atmosphere inside. Just wish I lived a bit closer.

If you are an Asian.. Avoid this place.. Raciest and abusive staff.. Was mishandled and abused just for not being English..!! Should be closed

By Urszula A.

I have been very disappointed by this bar. The guys there are terrible.

Went there yesterday night and it was full of geeks 'n stupid drunken guys being very aggressive when you were tellin' them to stay away from us.

I went to this place since I live in Fulham, now for the past 2 years, and I have to say, I am disappointed and won't go back again for sure now.

Great bar in the middle of Fulham Broadway. Great '80s tunes to boogie along to and crowd isn't overly pretentious. Always good for birthday drinks.

First bar I went to in London and still one of the best. Nothing to get in, great looking girls, good music, good service - What can I say? Shuts a bit early but definitely a good starter to a big night out.

By S.

The Elk Bar provides a Friday after work jaunt with beautiful ladies, easy going atmosphere and chart sounds to boogie to. Only problem is the closing time. 11pm. A 1am licence is needed to take this bar to new level.

By C.

The Elk Bar is the greatest bar in London. Not only is big, spacious, with a fabulous garden in the back, but it also serves great food. And not to mention the service is excellent!

The Elk Bar creates the ideal atmosphere for hanging out with your mates and meeting new people.

The Venue
Located a two minute walk from Fulham Broadway tube, The Elk Bar is sexy without going over the top. The long bar is a pleasant combination of dark wood, red booths and dim lighting. Cute furniture and hanging lamps create a high end feel but the rural theme, played out with cool modern prints and one unassuming pair of antlers, keeps it down to earth. The bar also manages to pull off red walls without being pretentious - a feat few other bars can rightfully claim to do.

The Atmosphere
On the weekend, this pretty bar transforms into a crowded dance party, where twenty and thirtysomethings can be found singing along to a non-discriminating mix of all time pop favourites from Soft Cell and the B52s to Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse. You are more than welcome to rub up against someone new at The Elk Bar, since everyone is either looking to pick someone up or hoping to be picked up. There is generally a good feeling of bonhomie, even if the competing women are a little overly made up and the competing men a bit drunk.

The Food
The daytime menu is fairly good and reasonably priced with mains and burgers costing £6 or £7. The nighttime menu emphasises groups with its long list of appetisers including mountains of nachos, hummus, duck spring rolls, and large platters of assorted dishes for sharing.

Both menus are fairly limited - this is bar food after all - but if you're starving you can always fill up on a burger.

The Drink
The drinks play a vital role in the success of Elk Bar. In addition to your usual beer and wine, there are a bunch of extras that make you feel a bit special when you order them. There's a decent choice of Champagne, including a couple of rose Champagnes. There is also the long list of sweet and extravagant cocktails available by the glass and jug, which bodes well for the groups of women who frequent this bar. Alacritous bartenders are full of smiles and serve up drinks quickly, despite the huge demand.

The Last Word
Even though The Elk Bar is open late and your feet are sore from shaking your booty, you still won't want to go home at the end of the night.
