Great food but yet again the service let's it down. Too many people swanning around not doing anything helpful. My friend had soup and when it arrived the waiter said 'enjoy' but there was no spoon! For fine dining one would expect better.... just one of many niggly issues. It has put me off dining there again as remembered the same issues from last time.

My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious 3 course lunch as part of the London Food Festival week. The service was impeccable in a beautiful setting.

The staff at the Balcon really were what made our whole experience so amazing.
They were attentive, and friendly. Even though we came towards the end of breakfast, we didn’t feel rushed. They made us feel welcome, (even when we asked to move to another table) and went above & beyond to make the whole experience so enjoyable.. even bringing us a personalised surprise when they realised it was a special occasion.
Couldn’t have asked for more! In particular, our waitress Nestle gave us helpful information about the local area & took the time to chat to us- she was amazing. Would visit again just because of her!
Food was incredible, cooked to perfection & came quickly after we ordered. Expected small portions, but quite the opposite.. I couldn’t finish the pancakes, they were huge!
Great selection of pastries/breads, all in all couldn’t find fault.
Would definitely visit again, we loved it.

Very enjoyable. Excellent location.

Great food, although the table for two allocated was far too close to other diners which stifled our business-related conversation.
