It’s “nice” nothing massively special or anything I wouldn’t go out of my way to go there again. I think it would be a fun night out with a bunch of friends. The service is fantastic the staff are all so friendly and polite and really helpful and attentive. The atmosphere is great, nice buzz. The music is really good too. The food is fine, it’s average enough, nothing special or memorable. We had to send back the sole it was rubbery and full of bones like every mouthful was 7 or 8 bones you can’t enjoy it when you’re literally fishing bones out of your mouth the whole time. It’s very reasonably priced, the menu is simple and has something for everyone. It’s just fine, average

I went for an anniversary dinner with my girlfriend and we loved it! We took a chance on the Chef's choice menu, priced at £45 p/head. We thought this was fairly reasonable considering the quality and variety of food. The only criticism I would make of the food was the main course, we had the pork belly. For me it was very rich and not very kind on the pallet, however the grilled pineapple did a good job in complimenting the pork, but I would have asked for more of it. The maitre d was incredibly informative and friendly but some of the waiting staff were a little overeager. After each course when I had put down my knife and fork a waitress would remove the plate within a few seconds. Ideally I'd like a few mins to process and relax, I might just be a little pedantic but felt I could not relax at times. Otherwise, the staff were absolutely lovely.

Liked the ideas behind this part fine dining restaurant, part Irish pub, but the execution was lacking. Service was pleasant but still a bit rough around the edges, it's super new so I understand they're ironing out the kinks. I like the design and general ambience, though the cold air blasting through the back door when it's open is going to be a problem sometimes. The thing that disappointed me was the food. From the seafood bar, langoustines come cold in a single portion (waiter could've mentioned it was just one considering I said we were sharing...) with a mountain of ailoi. For £6 I figured you might get two but I guess half of that is the ailoi cost... beef tartare and oyster emulsion was good. Mains of lamb chops and pork belly were fine but missing any real inspiration. I thought the overall menu lacked creativity and wow factor. Didn't have time for pud. Highlight by a mile was the bread and butter, one slice of sweet one more sour, beet baking I've had in a long time so hats off to that. Overall I think it needs work.

Fabulous lunch at Daffodil Mulligan on their first Sunday opening.
As large plates, the beef and pork were wonderful but my favourite was the crubeen with turnip, Apple and mustard small plate.
As for the Sweets, we had the Mousse and the Creme pot both of which were outstanding.
Special mention also to the Soda bread and butter which was served to us by Richard Corrigan himself.
Last but not least, a nod to the staff who were attentive, but never intrusive.

Best Steak I've ever had.

Took the parents whilst visiting in London and they were blown away.

Lovely service, lovely menu and perfectly executed.

We'll be back for sure.

Fantastic spot, bar below is great for a pre dinner drink and the food was excellent. Stand outs where the beef tartare and wood fired pork. Really nice to see Ricard working the floor and touching tables too.

My new local spot for casual but greet food.

The waiter was fabulous, the vibe is urban and great, the door staff were welcoming/really friendly, the food was a little interesting (which is great) but we didn’t get to the end feeling the food had been great.

Fundamentally we had a lovely evening - so thanks to the door staff, our waiter and the restaraunt

Great experience. Service and food were outstanding. Booking a seat at the oyster bar is a must: the Chef Colin is an absolute star! Will definitely go back. Very soon!

Absolutely brilliant! Inventive menu, wonderful ingredients, great atmosphere and keen pricing. It sat at the counter chatting to chef Colin and had an outstanding lunch. Try the steak tartare with oyster emulsion.
