“Main course good, puddings bad.”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

Ambiance is delightful in this traditional dining room, but the meal was uneven. The smoked salmon starter appeared without the published brown bread and the chocolate fondant dessert was quite appalling, having been micro-waved so that no chocolate sauce was evident and the sponge had become very dry. The lemon tart had a heavy dry pastry base and my party thought that it was possibly "shop bought" The Chablis accompanying our meal was excellent but not satisfactorily chilled. Main courses were better, steaks being well-cooked and sea bass quite acceptable although mashed potato was cold. A charming but inexperienced waitress added to the unusual experience. Not great cooking, but lovely surroundings.

Was here for a colleague's retirement lunch at a friend's club. What superb surroundings. Staff were friendly and a well priced lunch.
