Have been before and enjoyed it. found the menu more extensive this time but still very reasonable. The food is well cooked and well presented. I had the pork belly which came with heritage carrots and black pudding bon bons - delicious. My... More

Visited for the first time today and really enjoyed it, really interesting decor inside. The afternoon tea itself was tasty and they had all the different teas we asked for, staff were friendly and I'd definitely visit again. Lovely scones and cakes!

When we arrived it appeared that the online booking through Opentable hasn't worked but the Manager was brilliant and sorted out a table for 8. As they weren't expecting us there was only the Manager to bring everything out and to say he and the chefs did a fabulous job is an understatement! The new menu was BRILLIANT, the wines... More

We went here for breakfast the other day and its very impressive inside. It has a real hidden gem feel and it is place usually found in london. Unfortunately it couldnt do the basics. We had to wait for the menus to be printed, there was no english tea (though we were surrounded by shops, just nip and get some)and... More

Been many times over the last 7 years. Always excellent food with the menu changing frequently. Staff couldn't be more pleasant, professional or obliging. The restaurant itself is also a visual feast. I'd describe it as luxurious in an artistic, quirky and totally unique way. It's fine dining done a little differently but so well!

We were booked in for a birthday tea at 2:30 today. No food arrived until gone 3:30. even though we asked when we would be served. The food was ok, but I would never go there again. We were in a downstairs room so felt very forgotten. We were eventually given a free glass of champagne each to make up... More
