    The service is great with a very knowledgable, attentive and helpful waiter. However the food is a complete rip off. Green and White asparagus at £15 contained not one single tip of either colour just a few shredded stalks. No wonder the place is now half empty

    Have been here before, and it's a great location, with a nice atmosphere. Enjoyed a few weisbeers and some tasty food with a couple of old friends on a pleasant Friday evening. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite, even when asking us to move to another table to finish our drinks outside after we'd eaten, so they could prepare the table for the next service. One of our waiters followed up within a couple of minutes to return my phone to me which I'd left on my chair, which was very much appreciated. Will definitely come back again, and recommend it.

    Fantastic waitress, I forgot to ask her for her name and she disappeared before we finished. I think she was moved to wait on the tables outside. She was truly amazing, very friendly and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. She ensured that my garlic intolerance was accommodated. The food was wonderful too. We are still sitting in your garden are enjoying some more drinks and the lovely weather. Thank you for accommodating a surprise for my husband’s birthday. We will definitely be back soon.

    The service, atmosphere and decor were great. The wine we were recommended was lovely however the food was a little bland but presented lovey. More seasoning and spices on the vegan/veggie dishes would take this to the next level. Unfortunately my partner wasn’t really happy with the food so we’re not likely to return. If the food could be seasoned with more flavours or different vegan dishes offered then maybe we’d return. Would recommend but don’t expect amazing flavours.

    Wonderful, friendly, attentive service. The food was fantastic, as were the drinks. Would recommend to anyone visiting London. It's a little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for in this case. And with a lunch set menu you can keep this down. The whole menu sounded amazing and you can probably keep it to £50/60 per person with food (2 courses) and drinks, from the main menu.

    Such a beautiful building and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great that you can check any luggage in while you eat and they even let me leave it there while my friend and I went for a few drinks elsewhere! I'd booked the table for my friend's birthday which I'd mentioned during booking and, without even asking, they brought over a small cake with a candle at the end of our meal. We ate from the fixed price lunch menu so great value, would happily go back on an evening and order from the a la carte though. A first class experience from start to finish!
