Given what Raymond Blanc states on the website that he has tried to achieve, I think he's done a magnificent job and an 8 all round rating reflects that (people seem to bandy the highest ratings a bit too readily !). I ate there today at lunch: the place looks like a brasserie, feels like a brasserie and achieves really good, moderately priced brasserie fare. I was entertaining a client there and we both had the cheese souffle followed by the cod and samphire (which I am very fond of) with a glass of the house white wine plus coffee. With a generous tip the total came to just over £71, which was a very pleasant surprise. The food was not earth-shattering, but it was elegant and appropriate. The service was really good – it is nice to be served by real human beings and not automatons who are “dead behind the eyes”. Our waiter had a sense of humour but was neither partonising nor over-familiar. Well done Raymond – both my guest and I told each other we'd go back soon.
