It's so disappointing when a restaurant that you considered reliable, falls off it's plinth. We were three for lunch. Gone were the nice linen tablecloths, replaced by flimsy squres of paper. My friend ordered a cabernet sauvignon and was presented with a glass of white...More

Average food, poor service, rude staff. Don't understand why anyone would go here! I certainly won't be again...

We had dinner here twice while staying nearby. It was really lovely. Highlights for me were a salmon filet with spinach and a very nice steak on another night. For dessert the coffee creme brulee was spectacular. The complimentary breadsticks are dangerously delicious. The cheese...More

Ate here whilst staying in Belgravia, our experiences were very similar to the others on here. We visited here on spec, however I wished I'd read Tripadvisor first! The service was efficient but nothing special, but the food was very bland. I had a rice...More

I fell upon Motcombs whilst strolling and noticed many "fashionable" souls populating the outside tables, I glanced at the menu du jour and found "lobster thermostat" and a glass of house for about a tenner- done! I was in walking attire and anticipated the old...More

We had a nice meal here tonight. The staff were friendly, and the food was good. When we got the bill, we found that we were charged £1.50 each for bar service. This was apparently to cover linen and bread!! Also there is a 12.5%...More

I have been here multiple times for casual dinners with work colleagues and my partner. The service is perfect, the food is amazing and plentiful and the setting is wonderful. Can recommend the trio of fish and the minute steak. Will be returning.

Description
"Traditional British watering-hole and restaurant located 20 metres from Sloane Street, opposite Christian Louboutin. Both the restaurant and bar underwent a complete refurb in September 2000 proving this venue to be the utmost in style, yet maintaining a warm ambience. Lots of regular businessmen and locals and a freindly atmosphere. However the jolly feel should not detract from the restaurant which serves up seriously good food. Impressive selection of fish and game and excellent wine list. They recently won the Moet & Chandon/Harpers and Queen 'Best owner managed Restaurant in London'.
