    I always choose the early evening booking for the petit diner. Excellent winter menu showcasing a variety of of seasonal vegetables. Have been dining here for several years but had not been for about 11 months and was glad to see the unfortunate manufactured pretend meat item from last spring was gone (it was very unpleasant in texture and flavour). Also found the winter menu wine pairing to be exceptionally well-done.

    I booked the tasting menu for 7:30pm. I arrived 20 minutes early and was told to come back at 7:30pm (normally restaurants can seat you a bit earlier, typically 10 minutes before). I came back at 7:25pm and waited to go into the restaurant, a queue was already waiting to get in but they were not seating anyone until the customers already in the restaurant had left and they reset the tables. We were let in after 7:30pm only because it was a cold evening but seating actually started 5 to 10 minutes later with no apologies or explanation. After a further 10 to 15 minutes waiting the food started to arrive at the table but the first drink only arrived 40 minutes after the booking time. I ordered the drink pairings. It would have been nice and helpful to have a copy of the tasting menu placed on the table. The decor is plain and simple. The restaurant is small but cosy and warm. The staff were attentive but could have been friendlier. I enjoyed some of the dishes but not all. My favourite was the pasta course and my least favourite dishes were the salsify and parsnip, the latter supposed to be like a hare dish (I’d prefer if plant based restaurants just celebrated the produce they used rather than doing a mock version of a meat dish which in most cases tastes nothing like the real thing). I enjoyed the drink pairings but found the dessert wine too sweet for the food dish and my palate. Overall the restaurant was worth a visit but in my opinion there are much better plant based restaurants in London.
