The room is one of considerable charm with a progressive 21st Century decor blending admirably with the wide spaces and carved chimneypieces of the 18th. The tables are well apart, which allows for private conversation, something rare and of great value in central London. There were only two members of staff waiting on tables, but they managed to attend to our every need quickly and with aplomb. I was accompanied by one of the world's most demanding grande dames, so this was no mean feat. The restaurant is a winner both in terms of the friendliness of the staff and the elegance of the space.
The cooking is less accomplished. Competence and good value but simple additions like a bit of salt and lemon might have made all the difference. Happily, it eschews the chili-obsessed cuisine of modern Britain. It was pleasant to leave a restaurant with one's mouth lining intact.
All in all, a great place. Highly recommended.
