This restaurant came up via google "near you" whilst we were staying at the Hampton nearby. We were really pleased we chose it as the food was superb and the staff and service were excellent too. Ask your server how the restaurant got its name. The menu is really well chosen and not overly long or ambitious. We will definitely... More

I brought my husband here to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. The staff were really kind and helpful and the food was really beautiful. The waitresses were really so lovely to our little girl, carrying her around and talking to her which added to our enjoyable experience. My husband had a steak which was one of the best steaks...

He had the pork belly starter, venison, and the blueberry cheesecake and lime donuts. I had the spring vegetable and 2 cheese macaroni. We thoroughly enjoyed each of our dishes.

Came for lunch before catching a show at the Old Vic. Enjoyed the food very much. The service was attentive but not overbearing or rushed. When back in London would definitely pay a return visit.

Visited for the first time for our first anniversary and couldn't have been happier that we did, will definitely return...and the Venison Wellington is perfect. Many thanks to everyone that made a special occasion that bit more special.

Excellent food, exceptional service, cool and trendy decor....the entire place had an incredible vibe that was created by all of the above! I had a virgin strawberry Mojito, hummus appetiser, and sea bass for dinner. My guests had virgin mojitos too. For dinner my husband had a burger, and our friend had the Wellington. Everyone loved their food just as... More

Taking a large group of customers out in a country that's not your home base, knowing it will be pricey, but little else can be nerve wracking. Not so at this lovely little bistro. Delish food, fantastic, perfectly attentive service. Amazing cocktails, bar, entrees and dessert. I'd like to just say one word of inordinate praise for the chocolate martini.... More

We booked this restaurant based on trip advisor restaurant ranking in London and we weren't disappointed. When we first walked in we were surprised by the casual appearance of the place but the food was excellent and beautifully presented and we thought well priced. Would recommend.
