As this is a much reviewed restaurant, will restrict myself to brief comments on a very recent and much looked forward-to lunch. Go on bright days – makes the most of the atmosphere. Don't expect attentive service or uncramped surroundings. This is one of those “bustling” restaurants. Loos smell a bit once the ice in the urinals melts. My shared pasta starter was certainly home made, well cooked and authentic – but it was a bit bland (pasta, potato slices and pesto) and boring. Also, pasta can be cooked TOO “al dente”. My companion, who had made the choice, loved it so “you pays your money…”. My main course was worth the effort of travelling in London in the middle of the to taste. I had pork and foie gras sausages (2) with pearl barley and mushroom cooked as though this was a risotto. I just wish there had been more of the pearl barley to set-off the richness of the sausages. This was a cracking (in the Wallace and Grommit sense) dish. Overall, enjoyed the experience and may return but can't quite understand all the hype or the Squaremeal Editor's star rating.
