    Rather expensive for what it is and beware that the set menu shown on OpenTable is not available on Sunday. We ended up with a bill of£120 for a 3 course meal and a glass of wine each. More than I wanted to spend on lunch after an exhibition.

    Not a huge menu but all the food we four had was lovely, very tasty and well cooked, all in a fantastic space. Art works dotted around and an great outlook onto Duke of York’s Square gardens. The linguine is gorgeous and the treacle tart so moreish. Apparently the fish and chips, haddock, served with peas, tartare sauce and lemon was ‘spot on’. The prices are extremely reasonable for the location, a bottle of Prosecco DOCG was under £40. They do add a 12.5% service charge, which I absolutely hate as I would rather give a good tip to the waiting staff than see management take it in the initial bill. I wonder how little of the service charge actually gets to the staff? Lovely setting for a memorable meal without breaking the bank. Thoroughly recommend.

    Service was competent and friendly. Menu was fine - a few more salad choices would have been even better.

    Order wrong. Request for no anchovies but lettuce and dressing tasted of them. Service pretty poor.

    Lovely weekend lunch in the terrace. Great selection of drinks. Attentive service. Limited food menu and somewhat expensive but everything we ordered was good.

    Not the best experience I’ve had at this place. Nothing specific was wrong (apart from our waiter kept forgetting to bring things we’d asked for) but nothing was brilliant either. Value for money not delivered on this occasion.

    We visit regularly & you never disappoint. A beautiful dining space, great service & stunning food. What’s not to love ! Also the friend I visit with has an hour (or so) for lunch which is courteously taken on board & we achieve it seamlessly allowing for a one course lunch & coffee.
