The service was very slow, having popped in for a lunch break lunch, we waited approximately 40 minutes for our food after ordering; there appeared to be only one wait staff and one chef working in a pretty full restaurant, which probably explained this. Unfortunately, this meant that my companion and I were late back to the office. The food was good, save that the poached eggs were a little overdone for me and my companion's taste; no runny yolk! Also I am not quite sure where the reference to truffle came from in the truffled eggs as it did not taste of truffle and was essentially poached eggs, hollandaise, mushrooms, spinach and muffin.

I would go again, but only on a weekend due to the speed of service. It is a lovely environment however with friendly staff!

Have been to Sunday lunch a few times. It has been so good that we decided to go for an evening meal.
We weren’t disappointed, just as tasty as the Sunday meals.
We will be returning very soon.

The truth is that our experience at the larder was underwhelming.
The staff were lovely and friendly.
However our scallops were cold in the inside, and the food was pretty tasteless, it’s a shame as it’s a lovely looking restaurant and has a lot of potential but for us the food was poor.

Such a shame! Very hard to tell from outside that there is a restaurant there, we had to ask. Very long wait to order. The menu was completely different from the online one, with a list of courses (no mention if they were starters or main courses). It should state it is a tapas style menu, portions are tiny.
We ordered a crab, crayfish avocado and cucumber which we were then told was sold out (we should have been told beforehand) and were offered scallops instead.
Had to keep asking for water (funnily enough glasses of wine arrived promptly).
Only redeeming features were the inside decor with open kitchen and the puddings: yummy!

We had a table booked for 9pm after a long car journey, we called and asked if there was anyway we could order our food to take away, they don't normally do take away but very kindly made an exception! They went above and beyond to serve us the best food, we would definitely visit again!

Fabulous food, amazing service, was just a little bit bright and very quiet music. With social distancing it’s never going to be easy to get ambience right but turning lights down and increasing the music a little might help. But really fabulous food and service I’m sure once things return to normal this will be a great venue.
