Good value for money and huge portions. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The selection of food on the menu was great. The duck salad to start should have been warm but all other food was fab. I can recommend the Sea Breem or Beef. We'll be returning.

Took my nephew for Sunday lunch and was very impressed, from the wonderful décor, to friendly and efficient staff, to the lovely food and tremendous value for money. We had a drink in the lounge while perusing the menu, we were eating quite late and afternoon tea was being served, I will definitely return to try an afternoon tea. The... More

We had a stunningly good meal here. We opted for the £59 meal deal for two plus one a la carte but our lovely waitress was brilliant and, without our asking, told us she could do the deal for three of us, even providing a bottle and a half of the included wine. We could choose from the whole menu... More

Having lived in London for over 20 years, this total gold mine has charm but the chef produces cuisine better than Claridges or the Savoy, the staff need to up their game, however that are polite and accommodating but just a tiny polish and talking so clients can't overhear is worth a mention but that's trivial compared to this fantastic...

Such a shame! Staff and service in restaurant very good and food good also but doors to restaurant are kept wide open, radiators aren't on at night; draught from windows and door so you really need to be wrapped up in warm clothes. Also cold at lunchtime when heating is supposed to be on.
