Interesting mix of reviews on this one. I booked for two at the last minute and the very friendly receptionist could only offer bar seating immediately which we took, or a 45 minute wait for a table. Sitting facing the same way doesn't work for more than 2 people but we made a good choice, it created a more relaxed feel and i have to say the bartender was a legend – friendly, amusing, welcoming, fast and efficient with a few tricks to keep us amused, a top man and it did soften the blow of the price list. Atmosphere – buzzing and lively but not raucous so almost perfect, some great artworks (a few Damian Hirsts) make for some cool talking points. A food menu with most tastes catered for, there were some more complex dishes but mainly a lot of seasonal, good quality food just prepared quite simply. We both had a burger with different toppings and shared some french fries – the burger could not be faulted, both cooked medium rare to perfection although the chips were a little pale and flacid for our liking. We then shared a pineapple upside down cake – moist and delicious. Cocktails are the order of the day here and there are some great offerings – we had a bottle of Hermitage but due to the enthusiasm of the bartender we felt we couldn't go without allowing him to choose a cocktail for us to end the evening , which was great. But here's the slight rub – the bill was touching £140…for two people to have a two burgers, one fries and one cake. Yes i know there was around £75 of alcohol but is that really justifiable…I would go back because it was a great evening and the staff were great but they need to be on top of their game every single night for every single person for you not to come away from here feeling just a little bruised in the wallet.
