But the food lets it down, burger was exceedingly pink and the cod was insipid. No colour or garnish on the plates, poor presentation. But the servers are wonderful and their friendliness somewhat made up for a disappointing meal.

We really enjoyed our food and the service was really friendly. We're even thinking of bringing a group to dine one evening for my birthday. My dietary requirements were accommodated with a change to my cabbage and everything tasted lovely. Nevertheless I definitely would recommend and will return.

Not many people eating but I prefer that to a packed place. The food was fine with a few unusual touches in the starters (eg ndujah and dukkah). My fishcake was a bit rich with the hollandaise and the egg but that was what I chose. Would go again if going to the Trafalgar Studios afterwards.

At 6.30pm, the pub (separated from the restaurant) was heaving but the restaurant was empty - just us. Chatty and helpful waiter. Food very tasty but the portion sizes seemed odd. Beef & Mushroom Pie: big, lots of other stuff, too. Smoked Salmon Fishcake: just a small fishcake on a few bits of spinach underneath with a poached egg and sauce on top. Therefore, the 2 of us with the fishcakes felt short-changed. The 1 glass of red wine was corked but the waiter sorted that out efficiently and knocked something off the bill. Perfect. I'd probably go again though.

We saw a server working at the bar and tapped on the window but she ignored us. The entrance is not on the street but down the alley-hard to find but clearly labeled “entrance” on the threshold and clearly locked so we went next door.

We liked the ambiance and the music and after the theatre we came back for a quick drink before heading home. We ended up staying till closing time. The manager remembered us and was especially charming, making us feel quite special and we felt that if we lived or worked near Whitehall, it would become our local. We will be looking for an excuse to go back there again soon.

We had to get up several times in order to attract attention and items were missed off orders. It took 30 minutes for our wine to arrive, long after our starters and only after I asked for it. Disappointing.

Perfect for our group of friends having pre-theatre lunch before the Trafalgar Studios nearby. Food was only average though, small portions and overpriced. Still worth it though for the peace and quiet compared to alternatives in the area. Staff attentive and pleasant.

The Saturday lunch menu was very limited and the 2 of us decided on the same and were disappointed that they had run out, must admit we did then struggle to choose a replacement. the food was well cooked and enjoyable but this is not a foodie restaurant. staff pleasant. it would have been better to have been seated in the main areas but on the restaurants side we were half an hour early. they did have a good selection of draught ales and as I do like a good 'bitter' was a definite +. From our experience here this is a good casual restaurant in the heart of London, if you want anything a bit special then somewhere else would be better.
