    A good selection of meals. Prices ok for London. Atmosphere a bit lacking.

    Good service, beautiful hotel and restaurant, intimate dining experience. Great quality food with good portion size and quality ingredients used. Varied enough menu to offer choice to everyone. Exquisite desserts. Definitely recommend.

    Service was good, food is slightly disappointing. My friend's steak was cooked nearly well done whilst he called for a medium. My steak was alright as well as the starter and the sirloin. Reflected to the manager via email but no response from them.

    Afternoon tea reservation prior to an amazing theatre show. The restaurant is beautiful. Prompt, friendly service the entire visit. My young daughter felt very special. The food was amazing, really some of the best tea sandwiches we have ever had. Only negative is a 12.5% service charge added to our bill even though we had no special requests or dietary requirements. Apparently it is “discretionary” and added to each service.

    Friendly service and excellent food. Burger was one of the tastiest I have had. Desserts rather overpriced but good.

    Vi åt en Afternoon Tea och det var så mysigt. Det var så fint i restaurangen och vår servitör berättade historia om afternoon tea och allt var supermysigt.

    Excellent food here, especially the curries. Good portion sizes. Excellent value for money with a Taste card otherwise would be expensive.
