It's a nice enough place with attentive service, but the food was a big disappointment, especially given how expensive it was. The wine was also outrageously expensive.

A truly outstanding dining experience. The service was excellent, the food even moreso. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful the entire evening and there isn't a single item I can fault at all.
My wife and I set a high standard and Wild Honey most certainly met it, and then some.
The decor is splendid and stylish, the clientele very polite and the noise levels & ambience spot on.

The time for food to be brought to the table was longer than I expected given that the restaurant was not busy.
Thank you for arranging a small cake treat for my sister's birthday.

I expected more. For a restaurant that presents itself as fine dining I was disappointed. The restaurant was full and noisy, more like a pub than a fine dining restaurant, I guess I was expecting something a little more gentle in its atmosphere. The food, sadly also disappointing, I found all dishes well cooked but generally quite bland, not very flavorsome at all, certainly not memorable or anything I would recommend to a friend or return for. I felt cheated paying the bill. Sad, as the menu held so much promise.

Lunch for 4.
2 had to order 2 starters rather than a main as slightly odd menu.
Starters good quality but poor portion control.
Gazpacho excellent
Main course lamb no hint of pink but otherwise nice with sauce and pea purée v good.
Cod loin good
Service attentive but a bit pushy drinks wise

I had been to Wild Honey at its previous site, and loved it! I am delighted to say that the new venue works really well. The food and wine wine were excellent, and special mention for the house negroni. Can't wait to come back!

This was a belated birthday lunch for my 20 year old son.
Wonderful, friendly and professional welcome.
Similarly, the waiter also was kind, providing guidance and discreet attention throughout the meal.
The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We finished all three courses!

Quite disappointing. We went for an anniversary meal. The bouillabaisse was tasty, but at £39 each, quite stingy. 2 small pieces of fish, no seafood at all. My starter was tasty but miniscule. We were asked if it was a special occassion, and when we confirmed, were told we would have a “special treat” — with our dessert, two dry madeleines and some cut up fruit... for which we were then charged on the bill! Would not recommend, and would not go back.

Food was delicious and wine pairings recommendations from sommelier was excellent. Prompt and attentive service. COVID safety and precautions were in place and made us feel safe dinning there. Will return again. A treat for our first outing since Nov 2020 lockdown.
The pig head was excellent and the rabbit really tasty.

So exciting to be BACK after the long lockdown, and we were all finding our feet again, I think. A few little hiccups were very efficiently dealt with and smoothed over by the front of house team, and we were made to feel very special and well looked-after. Thank you for a lovely evening, back in the world!

Booked a table for lunch with friends the first weekend restaurants were able to open for outdoor dining post lockdown. It was a sunny day and we enjoyed a marvellous lunch outside facing Pall Mall. The food was delicious and the service excellent, and we weren't rushed off our table so stayed there for hours drinking cocktails and catching up. Quite pricey but for a celebratory occasion it's worth the spend.

A mid week lunchtime outing. With the pending change in Tier level we felt it's now or maybe next year. The following the day the place was forced to close. A spacious room, tables well spaced ... ideal under Covid rules. We opted for the Festive menu, five courses: pate, fish, venison, mouth cleanser and a chocolate melt in the middle pudding. The food was well presented, more than adequate portion sizes, staff very friendly. A very enjoyable lunch.
