The restaurant looked tired and so did the food. I took a friend from Belgium in the hope to show her that british dining can be exciting and good. We went for the taster menu, which at 19.50 is cheap. But from the first dish onwards the disappointments did not stop. The pumpkin soup was bland, the salmon not fresh (it must have come straight out the freezer), the lamb very greasy (swiming in some undefinable bean jus), the granita was made with artificial pinapple flavouring and the consistancy was not right, the plates for the desert had been painted with the berry sauce about an hour before serving (this made the berry sauce dried and sticking to the plate)… overall simply disappointing regardless at what price. There are better deals out there in london at the moment, which do not compromise on the food.
