    Food, service good. You have to nag for the bookatable menu, give you every menu bar that one. Twice it's happened. They were pushing free flowing Bloody Mary menu. You get the menu in the end. Shared toilets. Always a queue. With bottle of wine deal jumped from £25 pp to £40 pp

    Great coffee, food is decent. There's not much atmosphere at this location. Rooms are dull, you can hear music from another room which is a bit odd. Juices are not fresh, no mention they're bottled. Staff seem disinterested and so got the order wrong. Just average really, would probably eat there again as it's handy when visiting south bank but wouldn't go out of my way or recommend.

    Pleasant restaurant in fabulous location.
    Food was good but not remarkable. Over salty cod loin to start with not quite crispy enough pork belly to follow with lovely sweet root veg. My +1's fish pie was a bit dry and meh. Nice chips! Good service.

    We went for brunch, we booked the table a few days in advance (which was not easy, given that we were 8, including two girls aged 2). The service was excellent, the waiters were very patient with us (some of us arrived quite late) and very nice to the kids. The food was really good! Some people had the eggs, which were great, and their pancake is excellent too (although a bit surprising initially, since it's as thick as a sponge cake). Also, the place is beautiful and not crammed at all (there's lots of space even for children). And prices were very reasonable (we spent around 23£ each, and everyone had a dish, juices, and a side).
