Our March 2010 Sunday lunch was our first visit for 9-12 months. We came away with the same good impression we've always had in the past.
Some people may not like the elongated shape of the room, but we feel that it adds to privacy. Since the restaurant is on the second floor, with large windows and a conservatory style roof, the room is wonderfully light and airy. A perfect location for a long relaxing lunch. The décor is stylish and muted, with a slightly luxurious feel helped by the long banquette along the back wall.
For Sunday lunch, the menu had a good choice. Both our starters and mains were extremely good – very tasty pigeon, followed by equally tasty and tender lamb. All our courses were cooked and presented to a very high standard. The highlight for many is the fabulous cheeseboard, which must be one of the best in London. Circa 30-40 choices served by knowledgeable and interested staff, which is very unusual these days and a big plus. we also like the bread trolley and its choices. As is usual, there is a supplementary charge for the cheese.
The Sunday special menu really cannot be faulted at £30 plus service for 3 courses. Superb value that is difficult to beat (ie 10 / 10). Evenings, the bill will be a bit stiffer. With supplements, service and drinks, it won't be a cheap meal, but it will be good. Roughly £100 for 2 for 2 courses inc service ex drinks (my overall 8 for value)
The wine list is extensive, especially for France, but the choices are a bit limited sub-£50. We tend to end up spending £60-£90.
Front of house and waiting staff were all very charming, efficient and professional. Plus, they actually seemed interested in the food they were serving ! Could not be faulted.
Overall, still a very good restaurant, with great staff, serving very high quality dishes. We shall be back soon.
Must be the best of the rather mixed D&D bunch ?
