We've been here several times, and whilst it doesn't climb any culinary heights, this reliable bistro food has never disappointed. In fact we hadn't planned to go last Saturday, but as the Northern Line threw us off at Charing Cross we found ourselves walking through the door. An hour and a half later , after two courses , coffee and a couple of glasses of wine each from a substantial “small carafe” list and we arrived at our nearby theatre. We both enjoyed our mains of coq au vin with dauphinoise potatoes, though I thought my poached egg with mushrooms on a brioche starter trumped my wife's celeriac soup. Decent coffees and breads. Service was pleasant and attentive throughout and we never felt forgotten. A bill for £70 inc service was about right we thought.
I should say also that I got an email two days before from a good friend to whom I'd recommended this place. He was saying that he and his colleagues had had a great time for their reunion and had already determined to return next year. I have to agree. We eat out a lot right up (and down) the spectrum and this place has earned a place on our list.
