The reception were very helpful and accommodating when I wanted to change my booking from 7 persons to 9. Upon arrival, I did wonder why the place was not very busy though. We booked the brunch because of the exceptional value it advertised, however realised when we paid that the wording of the advertisement was a little misleading. As we booked the brunch offer which specified 2 courses from £18, however this only works if you choose 2 starter portions. This was not made very clear and so including drinks, we all paid £50 each (hence there was no special offer as all diners would have to pay the normal everyday prices) and which now made sense why the place wasn't busier for a location like this. Anyway whether this was intentional to be misleading or not, we also will be more careful reading word for word when we book other places in the future. But unfortunately this will be our last time to visit here.

Burratta starter was delicious, setting was perfect for LDN trooping if the colour trip, super friendly staff & great value set menu.

Definitely a great british restaurant for a girlie lunch in a plush hotel.

Slow post main service, but this may have been change over & because we didn’t look to be in any rush (which we weren’t) & average main hake course.

They forgot one of our half bottle of wine servings but offered us tea / coffee instead and charged us for one set menu with tea & one with wine so that made up for it perfectly with no fuss.

Not sure on the playlist when it started playing any winehouse otherwise lovely trip.

Would go again

Terrific dinner with the family! I really like that all of the dishes can be ordered as small or large plates. We each ordered two small plates. It was a good amount of food, and we all got to try multiple dishes. Everything was fantastic! Definitely coming here again. It was a bit cold in the restaurant, but as soon as we told a member of staff they immediately changed the air flow.

A lunch outing.. The A’la Carte gives you the option of small or large plate. We decided to explore the menu sharing our selection of five small plates. Starting with the asparagus, then mussels and chips. (The soup the mussels were served in was a hit, the sour dough bread served ideal for dunking). This was followed by the cold meat selection, then a Haggis wrapped Scotch Egg. We finished with the duck breast. We couldn’t fault the food or presentation. The portion sizes were good, not that small !!

The restaurant team was led by ladies, the chaps doing the tidying up. We couldn’t fault the service, attention to detail. The food was washed down with a sensibly priced 2005 Rioja. We decided to be greedy and go for a desert too… one lemon tart and a cheese board. As a treat I opted for a glass of ‘posh’ red Burgundy to go with my cheese…I didn’t share that. !! Another very relaxed, enjoyable lunch.

Great attentive service, relaxed, informative, helpful staff, and not overly formal. Background music a bit intrusive, but not enough to request it was changed or have volume turned down. Refurbished restaurnt last year apparently and looks bigger / crisper than previously. Daily specials on the menu, I quite liked the look of Thursday's, but as it was Friday, I picked from main menu. Excellent food, with small portions leaving room for dessert/ cheese.

We took some Italian friends here to experience a British hotel/restaurant in St James and were very pleased with our choice. Although disappointed at first that on a Sunday lunch time they only provide a 'brunch' menu (ie no roast dinners...) they did have a lamb meal option. Several of our party chose this option and were then told it had been replaced by something else. Initial disappointment aside, the lamb that arrived was wonderful, as in fact were all the meals.

The service was probably the best service we have ever experienced in London (and we've lived here for 20 years) and we therefore would not hesitate to come back again.

Truly wonderful meal. Very happy customers. Thank you.

We were welcomed very nicely, we were told there would be a wait for our mains which was ok, then they brought out the children’s who are 10 and 14 first then my husband and I waited a further 30 minutes for ours! The waitress said the chef wanted to feed our children first so they didn’t get upset, I pointed out to the waitress their ages and they are not toddlers!! When our main finally came out my husbands burger was very over cooked, my potatoes were cold so it was sent back. They brought us some fries instead which nobody wanted!
Over all very disappointing and we would never return or recommend.

Small restaurant but with very nice atmosphere! Was an incredible experience, the staff was super nice and all of them knew the menu, so if you have any doubt or question don't worry they gonna help you. Food experience: I love the chinaware and cutlery matching very well with the restaurant and then the food, is difficult to explain how good was if you didn't try. Jerusalem artichokes soup was amazing, very delicate and delicious. Pollock creamy and tender and everything was really good. And of course the desserts, we have a lemon tart and creamy cheese cake, are not enough words for describe them. We are really happy about this experience presentation food and staff was an amazing experience. Fine dining restaurant
Definitely we gonna come back
