This used to be excellent value. It was always busy, with a great atmosphere and good value for money. Not any more. They introduced a 'new menu' about a month ago. The prices are much higher, the portions considerably smaller, and the quality much lower....More

Is this the only restaurant in London that interprets two courses as the starter and main? If you want a main and pudding that's three courses... We left and had a Jamie's Italian, rabbit ragu... Om nom nom

There maybe one or two steps at the entrance, I can't remember but if you call they can confirm. And yes there are stairs that lead to the toilets on the floor below.
