We went for Saturday lunch, arriving at 1.25pm. Overall the food was very good with a few minor exceptions – the other reviews are spot on. We had a slight issue with the service as we were seated in the corner next to the toilets because the more pleasant (and empty) window tables were ‘reserved’. It was disappointing to see those nicer tables sitting empty throughout our lunch. I would also suggest that they put up a mirror so that dinners in the corner facing the wall can enjoy some of the atmosphere.
The service was friendly and professional, although they did forget to bring our wine so we had to have our starters with no wine, which is a little irritating. We had to make do with our blackcurrant champagne royal which did not match the food! My wife asked if it was possible to order one of the mains from the set menu but the kitchen refused to allow this as they were concerned about availability for the evening. I would expect a top restaurant to ‘go the extra mile’ in this regard and I was a surprised that they couldn't accommodate this request.
My chocolate dessert was unfortunately overcooked so it was hard spongecake rather than yummy runny chocolate. To be fair this was the only mistake with the food.
I did mention the ‘table’ issue when we left only to be told gruffly ‘Sorry the tables were reserved. Many of our diners request particular tables’. The grumpy attitude of the staff, in this regard, meant we left on a sour note. What a shame.
