The restaurant occupies a very sympathetically and beautifully restored room attached to the gallery. Big windows, mirrors and light wood furniture gives a very airy feel. Hence, despite the lack of space between tables, normally has a very pleasant breezy atmosphere. A bit of a contrast to most of the other buildings and restaurants nearby.
Eaten here 5-6 times in the last 6-8 months, either midweek dinner or Saturday lunch. The menu is normally short but certainly sufficient. The food is usually pretty good, and has been improving. A bias to simpler and more seasonal dishes, which I think works very well and suits our taste. We've eaten some very tasty risotto, lamb, mackerel and some very moorish truffle chips, plus some other less memorable dishes. Service is usually friendly, informal but professional. Also improved.
We usually pay £45-£50 for 2, for 2 courses, inc service ex all drinks; or average £85 in total inc drinks / extras. Very reasonable bills and very good value.
Overall, a great venue which has noticeably improved over the last year – very much “on the up”. Can treat as a formal or informal dining experience, given the attached gallery. A very good option for modern Euro / English cooking in this area.
Very much recommended – and you can combine with a look around one of London's leading contemporary galleries – normally something of interest !
