Four of went for a business lunch at my recommendation purely based seeing Mark Hix on Saturday Kitchen, when he mentioned that this restaurant was the old Rutland & Stubbs that a couple of us used to frequent some years ago. it was excellent then and nothing has changed, the service was just the right side of friendly and attentive, our waiter was very knowledgeable, and described the various menu offerings with passion and personality. 2 of us shared a large T bone which was cooked to perfection, we had some oysters to share and all had various starters and finished of with a very light Treacle Sponge. There was no pressure for the waiter to buy expensive wines, 2 of us were staying on beer and the others wanted to drink spritzers so the waiter just said the house white will do, he brought ice and a zested a lemon at the table and left us with a 'spritzer kit'. One criticism only, a choice of a couple more beers would have been nice, the HIx pale ale is good but very gassy, and serving it in pewter tankards was a nice touch. other than that I couldn't fault it.
