Not my first visit, but always a pleasure.

The food was delicious and very well presented.

The serving staff were courteous and knowledgeable.

The overall ambiance seems a bit outdated, but comfortable nevertheless.

All in all, a great dining experience.

The meal was OK, but the experience did not live up to our expectations. The food was nice, but nothing special. The service was slow and a little unprofessional at times.

We returned to the GS in June after a great meal there in November last year. We went for the set menu and accessorised with a bottle of wine and a couple of cocktails. Most of the interesting courses had a 5 pound supplement which was ok as it lends a bit more choice to the set menu which would have otherwise been very limited. For those diners into sustainability there is no evidence this has been considered which I am always suspicious of, particularly when it comes to ingredients like farmed salmon. The food was not as good as we had back in November- it lacked a bit of seasoning (I like salt I’m afraid) and the portions were on the mean side. However staff are helpful, cocktails are good and the building is stunning.

Lovely dining room. Guy on reception was pleasant and sommelier also. Female and male (bald) waiters were sullenly.
My partners food was good - he had white asparagus and then plaice (although menu said ‘whole’ plaice it was actually half a plaice). My scallops were ‘ok’ but underseasoned. My main was halibut with broccoli. Fish was flaccid and broccoli was cold
Nobody came during mains to ask if food ok and they knocked just broccoli off the bill
Major disappointment
Both puds were lovely
We had one cocktail each, three course and one bottle of wine. Bill £273. Not good value at all.

Considering the restaurant was not busy, the quality of the main course Sunday lunch meat was poor, the Yorkshire’s were over cooked & the range of vegetable side dishes poor.

This was dinner to celebrate my god daughter’s 30th birthday.
The setting is stunning and the staff are courteous, professional and well informed without getting in the way.
The food was delicious: we both had fish ( halibut and plaice) and it was wonderfully fresh and prepared to perfection.

Having selected the set menu which can sometimes be disappointing this was not the case here. All food we had was of excellent quality and deciding to also have their recommended wiling pairings was a good decision. As with other reviews it is a good ideal to have couple of side dishes.

The special £30 menu with a free cocktail is always good value for money. Starters and main courses were good, but the desserts were outstanding, they must have a fantastic pastry chef there! One of our party said the burnt sugar dessert was the best thing he had ever eaten, praise indeed!

Excellent service, food was not the best at all, overpriced for what it is.

Portion sizes were ridiculous and at 61 pounds per person after 2 bottles of wine, we were not impressed with the food at all

We booked, what appeared on the face of it, to be great value for London at £30 for 3 courses and a cocktail. However, whilst I knew there would be a service charge I didn’t expect our bill for two to be £125.

The mains didn’t arrive with anything so you need to order at least two sides at an average of £5 a side and a decent wine is upwards of £50 a bottle.

I would probably go again, but would allow a bigger budget!
