Set lunch for three courses plus glass of wine plus coffee & petits fours at £42 is fantastic value for food of this quality. Immaculately prepared and presented food, with a range of superb intense flavours. Dessert was perhaps slightly less polished than the previous two courses but I was distracted by the amazing chocolate madeleines brought straight from the oven.
Menu options are very limited: you choose from menus of three, six or eight courses; there's no a la carte menu as such. However nobody in my party complained as the options all looked good. Vegetarians might have a problem.
At first I was concerned about the small portion sizes – the starter of blue cheese ‘royale’ with pumpkin veloute seemed to weigh about 35g – but by the end of the meal I realised they had judged it absolutely perfectly.
Service wasn't flawless: one of our diners never got a menu, at this kind of place you expect to have water glasses constantly refreshed and they weren't, we waited ages for coffee, but there were certainly plenty of staff and they were all v professional.
The room itself is not particularly interesting; a few little bits of art dotted about the place; and some of the tables are very near the entrance which is open to the front door. However it's understated rather than bland or styleless.
Hmm sounds like more negatives than positives but I really really enjoyed the meal! Overall a brilliant food experience; highly recommended.
