I really wanted to love this place, it has had fab reviews ,' the new Heston', ‘ Noma trained’. Unfortunately it was a real earth shattering disappointment, so much so, that i was craving KFC after. Firstly, the location seemed to be in the middle of traffic central in London Bridge. Floor to ceiling windows need a good view, throughout dinner i had to watch white vans, red buses and tourists escaping the unusual tropical downpours recently in London. The ambience was terrible, bright lighting, stark walls, tables too far apart, no buzz at all. The food was novel and beautiful to look at, but it just was not tasty. I felt like i was eating foliage for half the meal. The bread and dripping was novel, but to be honest dipping bread in saturated fat is no fun. We had the never ending tasting menu, which took hours. There was the tartest turnip dish i have ever eaten, so pretty and delicate but so tart. The veal was chewy, complete faux pas in any restaurant. The mackerel was boring and nothing compare to the Ledbury mackerel. The pluses were the desserts which included a lemon crunchy delicious thing and cute chocolate marshmallows and shakes. The 3 bears puddings incited some conversation and tested our palates but again not tasty. There were moments of brilliance but the bottom line was i was not sated, a must in any fine meal.
