    Very good food in a relaxed, NOT noisy environment, which sadly is hard to find these days. The ambient music was relaxing; in the background, not in your head.

    Excellent venue for pre-theatre dining. Set menu interesting & good value. Service impeccable - always asking first which theatre you will be attending (if at all), so that they can ensure you will complete your meal in good time. It's a pity the National Theatre cannot flag up your presence more effectively. Difficult to find on first visit.

    Just love House.Food is perfect for me and I'm never disappointed.

  • ((((( 22 August 2018 by Sandra from Hampton

    The place was really quite when we got there but then more customer arrived later around 21:00/21:30. In some way this was really good because it gave us time to chat properly, without having to shout. The food was really good. Portion were perfectly balanced and the flavor really tasty. The staff was really friendly. The deal for £22 for 2 courses or £26 for 3 courses including a glass of wine was excellent.

    Visited with party of 6 and all chose the offer of 2 or 3 courses with a glass of wine. Food was inspiring and we all enjoyed our choices. Service was good balance of attentive but not intrusive. Favourite dish is difficult because all dishes good. I had the chilled melon and coconut soup followed by speltotto and both delicious. Strongly recommended!
