Why oh why?

I sometimes wonder why anyone would want a dining experience like this when you can get as good food for half the price in London. The dinner menu is four or five starters and four or five main courses. Great for margins, terrible for diners. The starters are truly tiny, often glutinous and... read more

We came on Sunday evening and the restaurant was not crowded. Service was professional and friendly but not warm. We had the tasting menu. Since I have low lactose tolerance, the chef altered the menu for me. Thanks…. Serving staff were knowledgeable of each dish and gave good introduction. The evening was wonderful. Food was great and sommelier recommended good... More

We were sad that we were too full from lunch to order the tasting menu -- everything looked wonderful. However, the three course meal we had was excellent. The service was outstanding. Wonderful wine, incredible cheese course.....what more can I say? Worth it.

When we first arrived we thought not much atmosphere very old fashion they should definately refurbish colour scheme very depressing Service very slow from the finish of the starter to receive the main course about 40 mins I had ordered The pork dish...

This was an absolutely fabulous meal that we had to celebrate a birthday! We had the six course lunch tasting menu and each course was delightful and perfectly sized so that we did not feel overly full at the end. The staff were very accommodating and friendly when we did not want the cheese course so had cheesecake instead, and... More

The main surprise here was that the restaurant was far from full, which is apparently the norm in January after the end of year rush, and yet another surprise was that the six-course lunch tasting menu was such a reasonable price, so we happily opted for that as we had sufficient time before our next engagement. The wine flight would... More

Having been utterly blown away by the a la carte lunch options in the summer we returned in the new year to try the set lunch menu and were not disappointed. From the rich and interesting flavours and textures of the chicken liver pre-starter through to the decadent chocolate orange tart we were thoroughly impressed. Great service and superb value...

We opted for the three course menu at 90 pounds which sounds expensive but isn't when one considers the faultless service and delicious food. A great treat for a special occasion.

The m' de wasn't happy with out square table so offered us a cosier round table, nice touch. The menu was fixed price with a few extras. We... More
