This restaurant is located in the Law Society building on Chancery Lane and was, until recently called "Six Clerks Restaurant & Bar". It has been modernised with a resulting change in menu and increase in prices. The modernisation is a pity in my opinion, give the history of the location, somethings should be retained historically. It is now just another modern restaurant and not somewhere that I would rush to. The staff were friendly enough and attentive but the food was uninspiring and did not live up to expecations. We visited on the occasion of our daughter being accepted into the Law Society as a qualified lawyer so it was a bit of a celebratory lunch. We had a starter and a main each plus a bottle of wine and the total bill was £84 including the tip. Our starters consisted of 1) Bay Potted Shrimp 2) Soft Rabbit Terrine 3) Black Pudding Scotch Egg. The Rabbit Terrine was the best of the lot; the Black Pudding Scotch Egg was dissappointing due to the very processed texture of the Black Pudding, which was a pity as it surrounded a beautifully cooked egg with a lovely, creamy, soft yoke, very unusual for a Scotch Egg as the yoke tends to be hard. If only the Black Pudding had been more crumbly it would have been fantastic. The Potted Shrimp was not great, far too much clarified butter and not enough Shrimp. For the mains we had 1) Lambs Liver - very good, the best main 2) 2 x Blue Cheese Tart - these were awful; they were not tarts just a small portion of blue cheese and other bits and bobs plonked on top of a pastry crust, there was no substance to the dish and the side salad garnish did little to provide sustenance. I'm sorry to say that I would not rush back.
