This a great place in the heart of Belgravia, with good traditional food, and very friendly and attentive service. A bit of fresh air in the otherwise snotty London restaurant scene.

Came in for a late lunch and this was a fantastic decision. The place had more upscale/modern British food. I loved my chili sautéed calamari and also my chicken breast with Swiss chard and celeriac. Mmmmmmm. So good! The juiciest chicken ever! Oh my god!...More

A great night and we were beautifully looked after. Great food and wine and a lovely room that gave us a proper sense of privacy.

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
