Food and services was great, no longer owned by Guy and Madonna, but definitely not lacking the class when they were the owners. The waiter Richard was well knowledgable I was quite surprised when he said he's only been working here for a couple of...More

This is a charming and friendly pub, delightfully hosted by the charming Pandy. It has a great combination of modern dishes and traditional pub food. Servings are generous. Really enjoyed it and will be back.

Had an excellent business meal at the Punchbowl. The food and service were excellent and it was nice to find a place off the beaten track in Mayfair.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is

vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
