I have to admit that the experience was not what I had expected being in the location that it is. Normally at the time we had arrived I would have expected a busier and vibrant atmosphere, but for most of the sitting our table was the only one used. In my opinion the quality of the food in comparison to the price was not great, but that might be considered being biased as I am not from the "high society" community however, I do appreciate that the prices are comparable to the locality, but still with this in mind I didn't consider this experience value for money. I had requested a birthday cake for my mother as a surprise to match the occasion and the staff did deliver however, the quality of the cake was very bad which resulted in two of the four guests at the table not eating their slices at all ( after the first bite) we then concluded that it may have become stodgy due to it just coming out of the fridge but some hours after we had brought it home we realised it was still of the same texture. Again, in my view £25 is not to be shunned at and was somewhat angered by what was served. I guess the first question will be why did I not complain and the answer is that I am not of the complaining type hence the reason for "letting it go" but looking back at the while experience I do think it was very disappointing especially when the total bill came to £310. In conclusion, I will not be recommending this establishment to anyone that would be thinking of dinning there. In my view the team needs to go back to the drawing board by providing a more extensive and value for money menu, this is my view would encourage more dinners to enjoy their evenings there.

Just OK, very empty for a Sunday evening, so flat atmosphere. No Sherlock Holmes memorabilia, unlike the hotel it is in. Overall, blah.

Great place, nice vibe.

We met there for lunch before a business meeting. The Bar Lunch menu is VERY limited. Don't expect hotel bar food. We wanted a salad or a sandwich - no such luck. We told that they serve sandwiches on the evening menu, not lunch (confusingly).

Maybe our expectations were out of line with the place....or maybe they didn't have a great menu. Who knows. The place was empty, though....

Since the very first opening both Restaurant and Bar menus has been completely revised and carefully adapted to please every sort of palate.

Overall a good experience with very friendly staff. Clearly some teething issues as it had only been open for a couple of days but we would return. The menu does not really flow - no need for a stir fry section at all.

Will return in the future.
