We were staying at the St Ermins and on our final day in London decided to do lunch at the Caxton before heading for the train. The ambience is lovely - bright, clean and brasserie style. The waitress was very friendly and helpful and the service was very efficient. We had a lovely pea and ham hock veloute, which was theatrically presented with the waitress pouring the pea veloute over the ham hock and our cheese wafers were beautifully presented with blobs of sauce and little pieces of garlic etc stuck onto them like little jewels. The complimentary foccia bread and tapenade was also a welcome change in London where everything now has a price! Our mains were very substancial. My wife had the lamb and I had pork cooked in the Josper with a maple syrup and onion rings. It was really succulent and presented on a board. The sides are quite expensive at £4 each! but this is London. The spinach was nice with garlic and chilie oil, and the mash was very nice. £4 for baby carrots however was not so good value. The chocolate orange dessert was delightful though but we were too full to eat one each and asked to share, this was no problem to our cheery waitress, the bill was quite expensive, but atleast we didn't leave feeling hungry and everything we ate was very tasty.
