A large selection of wines that are not readily available in bottle shops. The food was delicious. A favourite of the night was the bread and burrata, venison tartare and 300g sirloin steak!

We went for brunch as we were going to a matinee show. We had to try to get someone’s attention twice for water and also to order, otherwise the food was delicious, and we had a lovely brunch. We then went into the lounge bar where a customer was playing the piano and Xander provided us with exceptional service and drinks, it was also a lot quieter and a very relaxing way to top off our lovely brunch.
