    Decor 10, food 8, value 6, service 2 The first impression was of a well done outdoor garden setting but upon closer inspection, some of the chairs were worn through to the stuffing. We were greeted and seated immediately & but then sat waiting for 15 minutes for anyone else to come by to take a drink & appetizer order. There were at least 4 or 5 servers just standing around. After a bit we ordered cocktails & the spicy cauliflower app and that came quickly but then no one came back when the app was gone and drinks empty. We had to flag a different staff to order new drinks and food. The drinks came but not the food. After the drinks were gone again, about 30 minutes, with no one coming by, we finally got someone else’s attention to ask why we weren’t getting our food & ordered replacements for empty drinks. New drinks arrived still no food. After a time we were informed the person who took our order never put in the food & asked for our orders again. The food finally came quickly and was delicious. One of the managers came by to apologize and offered another round of drinks as apology but when we got the checks we were charged for those too. Oh, we were never offered water either like every other table was, we had to ask. If I were to ever go back I would sit in the bar area which appears to be self service! One of the nicest lady’s loos in London though!!

    Music was so loud that we were shouting across the table and ended up leaving early.

    Comfortable ambience and atmosphere. Starters and desserts were good quality however the mains were below the standard I would hope for.
