“Laid-back but fancy” is how one reader describes this Gordon Ramsay restaurant, although we think its sleek, sexy looks suggest a venue from his all-conquering protégé Jason Atherton. Everyone is welcome for food that’s “always of the highest standard” without demanding too much from the assembled company. Breakfast (home-baked raspberry and almond bread with vanilla butter, perhaps) kicks things off, and the globally influenced all-day carte knows how to please. Beef Wellington with truffle mash and red wine jus is “unbelievably good” according to one fan, although you can also get short rib or crispy chilli chicken burgers, fish pie and an accessible set option. An ice-cream bar menu, with build-your-own cones, sandwiches and wafer baskets, adds to the fun, as do staff who are “above friendly, and always very attentive”. A Coravin system keeps by-the-glass wines in good nick, while bottles are listed by style, grape and region.

Great place. Music a bit loud at times. Beef Wellington the best ever. Cooked to absolute perfection. Bar service a tad inattentive. Waitress service great. Trifle was another triumph. London prices. Would recommend.

A group of five of us had dinner here.
We ordered from the set menu (which we had to ask for separately) but it contained a good range of dishes to satisfy all 5 of us. Some starters were better than others and the flatbread was a bit of a let down. I had the chicken wings which were very tasty.
However main courses (which had to be supplemented by sides as none were included) were all very nice with good flavour. The best part was the sticky toffee pudding which I had for dessert. Scrumptious.
All in all the atmosphere as well as the food made for a most enjoyable evening.
I would come again,

I thought I had booked a 2 for 1 on main meals throughout January but was told not at 19:30 - yet it allowed me to book this time via square meal. Anyway, the house champagne, although lovely, was £54 a bottle, a tad expensive I think. My friend and I had a main course each and 1 side with a second bottle of this house champagne and were faced with a bill for £164. Now if my main had been delicious then I might not have been too upset but I literally had a very bad cannelloni that had an awful ricotta mousse through it. My friend had a battered prawn and avocado roll with chips - which we thought might have been done in some kind of tasty tempura batter with a nice sauce etc., no it literally was a heavy battered prawn and avocado on a roll. The best thing was the broccoli - I mean really!?
Even though the staff were nice, it was our waiters first night in this restaurant and it seemed he hadn't even seen the menu before as he knew nothing about any of the dishes. He also took an age to even offer us dessert which we declined on the basis that the menu simply wasn't that interesting.
It's basic pub grub yet charges a fortune. Better restaurants with better deals elsewhere.
Won't be back

Considering Ramsay has made a fortune from TV's "Kitchen Nightmares", he should really get off the box and back in the kitchen himself!
We went on a Friday lunchtime to a largely empty restaurant, so it should have been efficient. I can only assume that Gordon ensured that the wait staff were all lobotomised before service. 3 times we asked for water (2 different people) and at the end of our starter my companion had to get up and find a waitress (!) to ask for the wine that we ordered. She looked terribly blank at that stage.
With regard to the food. I had the King Crab cocktail, which was more like a game of spot the crab. If there was the meet of one leg in there I would be surprised. It was also DROWNING in Marie Rose sauce, making it unduly heavy and overwhelming. My friend ordered the pork belly, which he enjoyed, but it comes with nothing! Not even a spinach leaf. My hake was very nice. But I can't apply another superlative as it wouldn't be deserved.
I don't know how Square Meal awards it's stars, is it because the chef is a star? But this is decidedly average at best. Don't drag yourself out of the way to go.

The worst moment of my evening was the man from the bar next door puking outside the window I was seated next to. The highlight of my evening was leaving this dreadful place.
Gordon Ramsay should be ashamed of putting his name to such an anonymous establishment in such an awful street serving up such mediocre food. This man is an acclaimed Michelin starred chef but this level of food is noting to get excited about. A restaurant better to be avoided.
