It was bad. I mean really not good at all. Service was pleasant and everything was perfunctory without fault but the food was dismal. I had oysters to start which were OK. My husband had the crab salad which was fine but it was our mains that failed to live up to the price, atmosphere and service. I had the duck which was completely overcooked and my husband had the sirloin which was really tough. It was just a poor piece of beef and that was obvious.
Not only that but they gave us corked wine and I have Ceoliac Disease and became so sick afterward. I'm wondering if the beetroot salad wasn't marinated in a soy sauce. The chips were no better than bar chips and overall, I couldn't wait to get out of there it was such a disappointment.
I also had the privilege of sitting next to another couple who seemed to be having a very similar disappointing experience.
I can only imagine this is local favorite because of the atmosphere it creates form the second you walk up to the door. Sophisticated, coddled, arty and in-the know but if being truthful, the food is completely & utterly uninspired. You can get much better in London for the money and atmosphere.
Very forgettable and not recommended.
