The lunch was £45 for starters and tea. It’s gorgeous from the outside a typical pub on the inside. My pumpkin wasn’t fully cooked. The mussels my friend had were good. The leek and potato soup was okay. The service was good.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
