We were promptly served despite the fact we were a half hour early for our reservation. Turns out there aren’t that many reservations on a Tuesday afternoon at 4:00, very few people there, which was fine with us. It was very close to our theatre, making it a relaxed easy stroll after our pre-theatre dinner, even time for a second glass of wine! We went with the Express dinners at GBP 12.00, seemed a good deal. Veggies were good, our chicken pie was also tasty!

Absolutely horrid. An attractive modern restaurant in a good location, with Spanish-style options for smaller quantities. BUT, food prepared and presented with the finesse of a pyschopath in an abattoir. Sides essential - but all are extra. Oblong tables not sociable for groups. Average wine very pricey. Service charge obligatory. Do yourself a favour and give it a miss.

Only difficulty was that we specifically asked if the roast salmon was smoked and were told it was - it wasn't which caused some disappointment. Otherwise food was lovely and cocktails fab.

First time here. Good space and great service, but... the food arrived tepid and very quickly, suggesting it wasn’t to order (was it intentional?), but it was tasty. It was overpriced for the portion size too (£70) per head for 2 courses and wine. I’d give it another go but be a bit more discerning with my menu choices

Worst Sunday roast I’ve ever had . Raw vegetables , cold Yorkshire puddings and gravy that was stock swimming around the plate . £110 for 4 . Complete tourist trap and no effort made at all ... clueless ! 1 waitress, possibly American showed some sign of professionalism otherwise run by students!

We went for a pre-theatre dinner and found the menu short but interesting. The quality of the food was good and the service efficient. The pricing was what you might expect from a London based restaurant chain. I wouldn't say it was fine dining but good straightforward food.
I would go back again if the same circumstances were prevalent.
We were from out of town and not disappointed.

Love this place for a fun and relaxed night. Hearty food - the meat platter to share was delicious and there was plenty of it. We arrived in time for happy hour. 2 for 1 cocktails that were so tasty. Our waiter was great. Friendly and attentive service. We will be back.

Staff were attentive and helpful, explaining the options available- opted for the chef salad of the day and expressive martini and waiters recommendation. Nice buzz about the place and tables not crammed in so you could chat comfortably. Overall, a nice place to drop in and enjoy casual dining. I would recommend.

We had a birthday weekend in London and on our last night decided to stay local to our hotel. The atmosphere was lovely, and we had a great young waiter serving us who was helpful with the menu and cocktail recommendations! Food was wonderful (had the meat platter to share) and very good value for money.

The menu looked amazing; the smell of smoking meat as I walked in was mouth watering; the staff were friendly, and the cocktails an art form. Despite having an ambience reminiscent of the home furnishings section of a very upmarket department store, I had high hopes. The food was... fine. The short rib was dry and a bit under seasoned, but otherwise there was nothing wrong with any of it. It was just a bit disappointing. The stand-out dish was the green bean and broccoli side (which I highly recommend). The lamb belly was better than the beef rib. The smoked cauliflower cheese was on a par with the decent versions that have sprung up recently in many steak/bbq style restaurants.
If you are a fan of the fairly stark, ultra-modern restaurant styling, you would enjoy the atmosphere and the food is good enough. I find it feels slightly sterile, and so would have to be wowed by the food to balance that. And I wasn't.

The place is all about meat, and that element of the meal was excellent. Salmon dish also highly rated. Sides all tasty, and wine delicious and good value. Down side: the pork scratchings starter and coleslaw side we ordered never materialised. But that didn't spoil a very enjoyable experience.

Thought it was very expensive for quality of food. Not good that no extras such as potatoes salad or vegetables included in price. £9 for 2 portions of potatoes is ridiculous even for London prices!!!!
Chicken wasn't hot enough.

The food was great but the service was a little slow and my side came out much later than my main which was irritating. Nice that you can order wine in a carafe if you can't quite manage a whole bottle before the theatre!
