We made a point of visiting this restaurant mainly because we had a 'two courses for £10' voucher and we had visited Browns in Edinburgh & Bristol a few years ago and we were not disappointed then.
On arriving, the queue was spilling out onto the pavement, and lots of people seemed to have made a reservation. We tried phoning beforehand but were told no further bookings but that some tables were kept for walk ins.
When we reached the front of the queue, they were so helpful, and we were very surprised as to how pleasant the staff were on such a busy night. ( 9/11/13... London was buzzing, so many people around). They asked us to wait while they had a look around, came back and told us they had a table . We were served quickly and efficiently by Francesca who also helped us decide on what to have. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent.
If I had any complaint, it was a little draughty if sat in the aisle when the door opened, and a few people had to put coats around their shoulders!
