Great service but the food was bland and expensive for what it was and the restaurant lacked a vibe. We were unlucky there was a rowdy crowd in the bar whilst we were eating which the staff acknowledged but all in all I was underwhelmed and won’t be returning 👎🏻

I am sorry to hear about your experience. We had an engagement party on Thursday night booked in which ended up taking over the whole restaurant. We are a new small, independent business and we have to take bookings like this to survive in the industry. I did personally send you an email notifying you of this prior to your booking but it wasn't received and a glass of champagne for you and your guest. After we realised about the engagement party, we blocked off the restaurant or notified other customers to avoid disappointment which is why the downstairs of the restaurant was empty. I really do apologise for your poor experience. I have spoken to the team, we will be speaking about this review in our meeting this afternoon. We take feedback very very seriously and will ensure this does not happen again. Please let me know if you would like to visit again and I will personally ensure you are looked after. My email is [email protected]

Excellent service and food. We were under pressure from a timing point of view and our meal arrived quickly and efficiently and was delicious.

The music was too loud. It's quite difficult to have conversations. Appreciated if you can turn down the music a bit. The food and service were good.

Nice setting. Brilliant food. Nice wine. Very slow service, in particular 45 min wait for main course.

Atmosphere was fine, but more quiet than bustly. Wouldn't put me off coming back (might even encourage me). But others might prefer more hubbub. Value for money was ok, but not exceptional. Not that the food wasn't good, just that eating out in that part of London is quite expensive. Because it was lunchtime, we didn't have any wine, but the wines looked quite pricey. It was lovely that you marked my daughter's birthday so nicely, thanks!

A really good lunch. Each course came out pretty quickly but that worked well when on a lunch with colleagues. Everyone very happy with their food. Snacks from the bar menu great as well. The service was a little disjointed and maybe the kitchen were ahead of FOH as food came out and we had to ask for wine with main course. Minor in the grand scheme of things even with quite a lot of staff for the size.

The forerib myself and my guest ordered was disappointing. I ordered rare, he ordered medium rare and both were well done. The quality of the beef was also poor with as much fat as meat.

Restaurant Response

Dear Sir, You ordered the short rib of beef which has been braised overnight in red wine. Unfortunately because of the cut, it would be too tough to serve rare or medium rare. The staff should have advised you on this. All of our meat comes from an excellent butcher. The beef is an Aberdeen Angus cross from Scotland. Many apologies on this occasion for the lack of communication and I hope you come again soon so we can rectify your experience. Kind Regards, Gemma

Very pleasant lunch for 10, nice atmosphere, excellent service and good food. Wine list generally pricey but we had a very pleasant couple down the cheaper end! Overall cost on a par with others nearby. Would happily return.

A group of 7 of us had lunch here last Friday (a thank you for some clients), and I think we eventually rolled out about 5pm (from a 12.30pm booking). The food, drinks and service were all excellent and it really makes the difference to be in a cosy independent rather than a charmless chain. It was an all-round fab experience and we hope to be back very soon.
