Visiting 5 days into the new opening was always going to have teething problems – but there were numerous in the restaurant. Courses were delivered piecemeal, they ran out of red wine glasses and the space is not quite working – we were seated next to the cutlery island so consequently bumped into by waiting staff a lot. Onto the staff – there were a lot of them; they were all polite but you got the impression they did not clearly know their roles. Teething issues aside, when the food for the table did arrive it was good, but not great. The winning dishes on our table were the crab cakes and the Lamb cutlets. The roasted cauliflower sounded odd (with passion fruit) but was a surprising delight. The food is comparable to any good eatery in London, but the views tip into a great category. The bar was truly the highlight though (even if there was a £12 service charge) and would be one way to impress on a date.
