Langan’s has apparently been around for the past 35 years and it’s not difficult to see why. Wall-to-wall art collection (note the odd Hockney), an ardent if ageing following of regulars, guaranteed buzz, well drilled staff…it’s a theatrical and fun place.
Eating a menu devised in the eighties, served by staff who have been serving since the eighties and surrounded by regulars who have been coming since the eighties, Langans can seem like something of a timewarp, and it is. Is this a strength or a weakness? Well.. à chacun son goût. For some, no doubt, there's a clubby nostalgia that goes with territory, passed from generation to generation.
If you come expecting cutting edge cooking you may be disappointed, and while not cheap, it is certainly not expensive either for this part of town. We enjoyed the likes of perfectly cooked and generously portioned liver salad, and salmon en croute – moreish if a touch overdone.
