Bob Bob Ricard is odd and I can't make my mind up whether I like it or not. My friend is in love with it and has taken me twice, once for brunch (great) and once for dinner (confusing). I didn't get on with the nursery food meets fine dining menu where macaroni cheese and shepherds pie sit alongside lobster and beef wellington.
It's not cheap, so I'd rather spend that money in a less ‘novelty’ environment and get to grips with a more cohesive menu if I'm paying those prices.
The service is great and it's had a really buzzy atmosphere both times I've been and the room is certainly striking and it does make for a nice change. Take a mixed group of friends for a noisy burger and too many bottles of red and you'll have a great time. Or go for a lazy brunch or tea. Don't take someone without a sense of humour.
Now… Those uniforms… It seems so cruel to put such trained and welcoming staff in those god awful jackets . They look like servants from Daddy Warbuck's mansion in a crap am dram production of Annie.
