    We went to the set Sunday lunch of roast lamb with dauphinois potatoes. The starter salads to share with excellent..tomato and anchovy and a courgette and mint salad. The lamb as tender and perfect cooked and the potatoes were superb. The rhubarb and almond tart was the perfect conclusion to a delicious lunch. Service was professional and attentive but relaxed. So sad that Emile is closing as it is an absolute gem.

    The starters were lovely but the mains were a little flat which was a shame. The restaurant is really sweet and good wine selection. Such a shame the waitress that looked after our table was curt and pretty pretentious. After ordering a drink at the end of our meal, she told us we needed leave in 20 mins for another booking, it was 10pm and there were plenty of empty tables so this seemed very odd. Such a shame because otherwise it was a really nice evening.

    This feels like a restaurant that knows it won’t be around for long. Food: superb croquettes to start, other starters disappointing; lovely chocolate mousse to finish. However...Our mains were dreadful. Bland would be kind. Both our dishes were pasta both tasted of nothing. One was drowned in ink, the other had pasta that was both raw and overcooked. Service. Except the assistant chef who at times delivered dishes, the waiting staff were awkward, uncomfortable, lacking any warmth or personality and reminded me of Rami Malek in ‘Mr. Robot’. Ambience: initially looks ‘cool’ but in reality is rather cold. We had to whisper as it wasn’t busy, there wasn’t a buzz and no music to create any sort of din. This was Friday lunchtime.

    This is my new Friday lunch spot. The standard menu is excellent, and Chef is always playing with something new and fun in the kitchen. Very well priced wine list. Quiet enough for a business lunch, without feeling like you're in a tomb. Will be devastated when they close next month for their move to their new location.

    Fantastic meal, very innovative menu so much so I couldnt decide as could have had everything on the menu and lots I hadnt had before. The Celariac starter was an eye opener. Would highly recommend a visit.

    love this place. I understand it's only a pop up, but it would be a shame were it to disappear. Almost want to keep it a secret so that it does not get overrun, but let's be supportive and keep it open
