Loved the location in Somerset House restaurant was lovely - prosecco cold and food excellent. We ordered 3 sides at £4 each between 4 but we really only needed 2 as they were a decent size for sharing. Selection of 3 starters mains and desserts followed by coffee. Service was excellent.

    Fab the service was brilliant. We both had the brown crab starter which was so tasty could perhaps done with one more piece of toast if being very picky. We both had the pork one had the chips which where everything they lived up to be one the spring onion mash which was so creamy and complemented the por perfectly. Two different deserts rubhub fool with a very light cake like a madalline beautifully light tasty fool. The other lemon posset nice citrusy lemon with sweat shortbread biscuit. A wonderful dinning experience.

    The restaurant is a lovely calm oasis right in the heart of the hurly burly of London. The food was great and the service was really excellent. Highly recommended.

    We arrived in London earlier than expected but the waitress at Tom's Kitchen kindly brought our reservation forward by 30 minutes for us. The service was good and the food was excellent. Just a minor hiccup, we were both disappointed that the starters that we wanted were not available but were unable to choose from another menu a similar starter and eventually had to settle for something completely different although we were prepared to pay any extra cost choosing from a different menu if there was a difference in price. The food we did have was freshly cooked, hot and tasty. We would definitely go back again.

    Great venue, Somerset house is stunning. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, shame the food (brunch) was poor in flavour. Hollandaise sauces on our benedicts didn't taste right, triple cook chips were not fresh and crispy. Too bad. Also called the restaurant several times before and no one ever answers the phone...
