    In a busy life lived in a fast-moving world to come to lunch @ Launceston Place is to step into a restaurant that approaches perfection with regard to the food served, the setting of light-filled pearly grey and the perfect attention that is given by the Staff. I have been lunching @ Launceston Place for something like 10 years and I have never been disappointed.

    Possibly one of the best lunches I’ve had in quite awhile. Service was excellent and the novelty of the menu and how you made your selection was superb. Presentation of each dish was so well thought out, which added to the sublime flavour of ever dish. Totally recommend a visit you will not regret it.
