This is a good, busy and bustling restaurant which we booked for and visited on a Saturday lunchtime. Although the tables are pretty cramped and you do get the impression that everyone is a little crammed in. Taking a coat off without sweeping the next table is a careful operation!
Food and drinks were nice and the fish was very light and well cooked. Cost was not cheap, neither was it expensive. Glass of wine, a bottle of beer and 2 mains around £50.
All that said the reason we will not return is the shameful addition of 12.5% " discretionary" service charge. This is added and totalled when you receive the bill and you have to actively ask for it to be removed, which you have to do in front of other diners and your party. Most people will not and this is, in my opinion, just a revenue collection exercise. We always reward good service and would have tipped on Saturday but this method of "default" tipping is poor practice.
The dictionary definition of discretionary is "left to discretion : exercised at one's own discretion", having it added before receiving the bill is patently NOT discretionary. We had looked forward to our visit to the market and had booked our table some weeks ago. It's a shame that we were left with a sour taste in the mouth and it wasn't from the food.
