We've eaten here 3-4 times since Oct 10, most recently late Jan 11. The menu is relatively short and simple. The food is French brasserie / bistro style comfort food – some very conventional (eg cassoulet), others with an English twist (eg Hereford snail & bacon pie). Nothing to get too excited about, but decent reliable stuff. Aimed at a very different market to Wild Honey.
We normally pay £30-£33 pp for 2 courses, inc service, exc drinks, which is reasonable value. The wine list is sufficient, and includes some reasonable less expensive bottles in the £30 range.
Like any good informal brasserie / bistro, the dining room has a very pleasant and relaxed, with a buzzy atmosphere. Always busy, even on a Tues night. The building, interior furnishing and décor are perfectly suited to such a brasserie.
We've always found service to be efficient and friendly. However, we recently noticed another table complaining about wait times, so they're perhaps pushing the covers vs kitchen capacity to the edge ? Its certainly a busy place.
Overall, a good addition in a surprisingly poorly served area (as Terroir discovered). Particularly convenient for pre and post theatre, given its proximity to St Martins Lane and The Strand.
