Beautiful restaurant. Historical place that has even entertained Queen Elizabeth. Food was excellent. Service was outstanding. We've been here before, and very much like it. Food is beautifully prepared, and there is plenty. Not busy, which is unusual. You need at least an 1 1/2 hours to eat a meal here, its not a quick place-which is absolutely fine. My... More

Have eaten here for many years, even the Queen has eaten here. The character and ambiance has been maintained with constant updates to maintain a fresh appearance . Try the rack of lamb, superb.

Just got home from Sunday Brunch with my wife and daughter. We read about this restaurant here on TA and it sounded like something we would enjoy and our first visit was a very good experience. We were greeted like family and seated immediately. The service was excellent and on point. The variety of dishes on offer wasn't huge but... More

The food and service were excellent. The ambience of the restaurant makes for a lovely evening out. The piano player adds an extra touch to a fantastic, relaxing night. Sure beats the chains.

Ambience was nice Enjoy piano bar Food was good Service was good Presentation was ok Surprised at how unbusy they were Wish people would go back to dressing appropriately for a fancy restaurant, collar on shirts, dress pants, no shorts and t-shirts When I am spending a lot of money I would rather not have misbehaving children next to me

Recently visited this establishment twice where I enjoyed a dinner and a lunch. The food was prepared and plated very nicely. The service was formal. Decor-wise, the restaurant is from another era which provides lots to gaze at during the meal. This place is a gem.

Great place to take family and friends. What else can be said, when the Queen of England comes to your restaurant.

Service and food are excellent. We have been going there for years for special occasions. The menu and decor has not changed much over the years though

We went to this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. It was our third time here over several years. Each time we have a great experience. On previous visits we were seated in the more formal diningroom, but this time we were seated in the piano bar area. It's a little more casual, piano being played. As usual the food and... More
