GK Chesterton coined the phrase, which was clearly too much for the owners to resist – although the quirky moniker fits nicely with the oddball feel of this Kensal Green fun palace. From the wildly decadent interiors (marble busts, swirling drapes, chandeliers, grandiose paintings) to live bands and DJs, there’s a lot going on here – although the kitchen also puts plenty of effort into the food. Sit in the lavishly attired restaurant and enjoy seasonal dishes made from fresh locally sourced ingredients: Seared beef carpaccio, rocket, parmesan and roasted beetroot vinaigrette; Grilled prawns, avocado fattoush salad, tahini yoghurt and Spiced poussin with Jersey Royal potato salad, harissa aioli. With a great conservatory, private dining rooms, ‘cheeky Sunday roasts’ and more besides, this place has good-time distractions at every turn.

We went on a Friday night and booked an early table. Drinks in the very busy bar beforehand, and the service was great. A wine was well recommended by the barman to suit our taste. Once in the lovely, airy dining room, we were spoilt for choice was a shortish, but tempting menu. I ordered the monkfish, and almost had to lick my plate! My companion had the duck, which was pronounced 'delicious' several times. We did go upstairs briefly afterwards to check the DJ, but it was all a bit young for these old bones! But a great meal, and excellent service. Highly recommended.
Booked a table for my wife and I, and a colleague and her son who lives locally. Based on reviews on square meal. Cannot fault the place. Very apprehensive when we turned up, as the outside and people around did not inspire confidence. WRONG. Once inside, the place was great. Staff attentive, and the food fantastic. (A mixture of starters including nettle pasta, fish and mains varying from rib eye to chicken). With the 50% food discount, I was more than happy to pay the bill. The atmospere was good (midweek), Hard to be critical. Maybe the seats could be more comfortable, but I am struggling to find a problem.

The food , drink was very nice , although quite pricey the portion size and quality was spot on.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and it helped create an enjoyable atmosphere . I would recommend this place to anyone looking to take a girl on a date ;)
