We went here for our anniversary - and the team made it super special! They had cut out little love hearts and they were on our table and we both got a glass of bubbles when we sat down at the table. The food was delicious, the staff were lovely and the atmosphere was really nice. Thanks guys - we'll be back!

Had to ask waiter to change glasses 3 times (9 glasses) as insides smelt of eggs ie. caused by dirty water. Table was sticky similar sickly smell. Food disappointing and will not recommend this restaurant to business colleagues.

Everything was great! We went for dinner on Friday night! Food was tasty and the kitchen was open until late :) Great wine selection and delicious cocktails! The noise level was quite high which made our communication with each other a bit difficult but that was ok!
We will definitely go back!!!

I wouldn’t necessarily traipse halfway across town to get there but if I’m ever around Holborn or Russell Square then I’ll go there without thinking twice.
It’s so cool ! Has a great vibe. The music on the Friday night was great, I complimented the DJ

The staff are the best and the food was perfectly executed and presented.
There were five in our party and nobody could find anything less than perfect In the place.

It was really lovely, but a little expensive. I had a phone call and it was a little loud for this, but understandable as it was breakfast time. Service and food were great.

In fact, we didn't eat here after all. I made a reservation, by phone, for father's day. We REALLY wanted a traditional Sunday roast. I phoned and asked if they did serve sunday roasts and I was told YES, so I booked a table for 3.

Upon arrival, we were allocated to a table NOT in the restaurant, but in the bar area. Not only is this surrounded by people drinking pints, noisy and not eating, but also the seats are low recliners - not ideal for a lunch with a 74-year-old man. Eventually, we were shown to another table. I asked for the Sunday roast - "Oh we don't do that, we stopped that a while back". Not at all happy, and in fact not entirely happy with the response of the restaurant. Given that we'd gone out of our way to phone, to enquire and to be there - they were quite unconcerned. Won't be going back....EVER

We booked in advance for the bottomless Sunday Lunch but, when we got there, we were told that the promotion had ended the previous week. However, it is still advertised on their website. We left and didn't eat as the menu available wasn't what we had booked.

Went there few months ago for the Sunday roast and it was delicious. We were looking forward to have it again, to say we were disappointed is an understatement. I don’t know if the kitchen staff has changed recently, but the veggies were cold and the chicken overcooked. Won’t go back.

The food is decent but if you’re going there to have conversation it isn’t really the place. Music is too loud and the food is very expensive for the portions you get. They need to get back to serving good food, less expensive in a less pretentious atmosphere.

The food was amazing!! Having been disappointed that the roast dinners stopped at 5pm on a Sunday (they look amazing -with bottomless potatoes apparently), the waiter recommended that we try the hanger steak. The steak was amazing!!! The portion size was generous, and cooked to perfection. The fries are also seasoned with a lovely garlic flavouring. The waiter was the right level of attentiveness and a chilled atmosphere.
I would definitely recommend that you try!!

Had the Sunday Roast and it was so good! Free "refills" on Yorkshires and potatoes which we naturally took advantage of. Waitress was very lovely and asked if we'd like more instead of waiting for us to ask ourselves. Prices are very "London" prices of course but we felt it was worth it!

The food came out before the wine ( we brought a bottle of red and white and neither were that good for just over £20 per bottle ) which is never a good sign. The lamb was like pulled pork, which was ok, but not a proper roast. One of our party was a pescatarian but they had no fish which was one of the reasons we went there and had to settle for a roasted aubergine which was not that good. We did get as many potato's and Yorkshire pudding as we wanted and the staff were very friendly. The restaurant was very nice inside, but I wouldn’t recommend going there for roast dinner

Great place food music and staff. We were recommended the side of cabbage which I have to say was not great. We advised the waitress and she said they tried it and agreed yet nothing deducted from bill. Other than this the place is great.

We had a great time, the food and atmosphere was what we desired. Slightly more expensive than expected. The only downside was the rushed and abrupt service we had. Couldn’t help but think the waiter wanted us to order something if we weren’t going to then he wanted us to vacate the table ASAP. Not pleasant when you have met up with friends to chat and catch up.

Location and ambience really great, particularly for a introductory client meeting.
Coffees and teas were good but very slow to arrive ~15mins
Service generally was very poor, asked twice for the bill, wait to return with card machine

i had a steak which i was really looking forward to but tit was tiny. It total four normal mouth fulls. That is it. Was not impressed.
I was complaining about it to my colleagues at work and Elizabeth who also has a steak the week before had a small steak too which she wasn't too happy about.

I eat out with clients all the time but doubt I will go back for a while.

Overall the food was ok and so was the service. The scallops were some of the smallest I have ever seen and the celeriac consisted of three tiny pieces of celeriac but with a large dollop of polenta. Why not call the starter polenta with celeriac?
