Kitchen W8 is absolutely excellent. Never disappoints. Since its revamp, it feels so much lighter and fresher. The private dining area looks amazing. I chose venison for my main course which was completely superb, unusually moist & a brilliant flavour. I then had a selection of 3 cheeses...delicious. We are so lucky to have a Michelin starred restaurant on our doorstep. Thank you.

Great as always (I come here about six times a year). No faces I recognised this time (moved together to a new restaurant?) but still a similar atmosphere. I usually come with family, but on this occasion it was with a friend/colleague after a business meeting. We had the set lunches - just what we needed.

All delicious! Generous with scallops and amazing hand-rolled pasta, chanterelle and squash starter. Lovely apple and blackberry fizz aperitif.

Food and service was excellent. The celeriac starter had a beautiful subtle taste and interesting textures. The dessert, beignets had an amazing texture and were lovely and crispy on the outside. Dining room is simple and elegant.
