I came here as part of my partner's birthday celebrations as we have not eaten here before and wanted to try this place out before we made a decision about visiting Pied-a-terre at a later date. We booked a table early in the evening so that we would have the choice of the pre-theatre menu which sounded delicious, I could have eaten any of the choices offered. However, we were persuaded by the tempting menu to take the tasting menu with matching wines instead. The restaurant was quiet in the early evening but it is laid out well so you don't feel like you can't talk comfortably. By the time we left it was much busier. The restaurant does go for quite an informal style - there are no tablecloths and no strict dress code. The service was as good as to be expected from a place like this, the waitress who brought the butter over was particularly cheerful and friendly. The food was as nice as it sounded from reading the menu and the wines (and Sake in one case) beautifully complimented the dishes. The stand-outs for us were the Poached Cod with Ras el Hanout, Butternut Squash, Celeriac and Soybean and the Berkshire Lamb with Red Pepper Ketchup, Roscoff Onion, Aubergine and Spinach. We also opted for the cheese course and the selection was decent. Overall, I was impressed and it definitely deserves its Michelin Star when you compare it to other restaurants with a star.
