Went there for a business group dinner. The Grand Divan room is spacious but lacks some accents (particularly if you're seated with your back to the entrance), so is a bit boring and stiff (however, what would you expect from an establishment which was a gents' club for most of it's life?). A nice row of divan semi-private tables on the right-hand side. Service was very welcoming, attentive and polite, however the somelier could have been a bit more friendly and proactive. Food-wise, a very good value for money – portions are very generous. Starter of prawn cocktail was beautifully presented and had a healthy addition of fresh vegetables to it (not just all the sauce). Guinea fowl for the main course was very nicely done, and the greens were cooked to perfection. The dessert of a fruit pavlova was a bit sticky and a bit too sweet, but i assume that's just my individual taste.
They also serve lovely roast carved hot at the table which, from what i can see, was much appreciated by senior male diners.
Overall, a nice dining experience, very club-like and business like, although if you need to talk quietly ask for a divan seating – that will hopefully cut some of the buzz off.
