Tried Brumus in Feb 2011 for a post theatre dinner, due to its proximity to the Comedy Theatre. The play didn't finish until 10pm.
Decor and furnishing is very trendy and warm, with unusual colours, which works well. However, the dining room was virtually empty, so naturally lacked atmosphere – but at least it meant that we could take a window seat and watch the world go by in the Haymarket, which can be entertaining.
We chose some of the more expensive items from the a la carte menu. The food was fairly good, although nothing exciting or great, but much better than we had expected for this very touristy part of London.
Unfortunately, our waiter's service approach switched between a) being completely unattentive (chatting to a colleague) and b) being rather patronising, talking to us as if we were newly arrived tourists who had never eaten in a decent restaurant before. Remarkably similar to that irritating habit of some French restaurants !!
Cost £100 for 2 for 2 courses inc service ex all drinks, or £160 in total. In my view, completely mis-priced and very poor value for the quality of food and the poor service. Felt like a “fleece the hotel residents” price level. A shame, because it’s a nice room, conveniently located, and the food was perfectly OK.
We won't be back.
