First time visit, and won't be the last. The atmosphere here is lively, though not loud and in your face. Just right to wake one up on a Sunday morning. Then there's the food to look forward to. The eggs were light and fluffy, benedict seemed to go down well, and from my perspective the pancakes were perfect. A great... More

I hadn't been here for a few years but it was as good as I remembered. Met a friend for lunch on a Sunday. They said we could only have the table for 1.5 hours and reminded me of this when they phoned to confirm the day before - but in fact it wasn't super busy so we were able... More

Having eaten and drunk here a few times, I was disappointed when my friend and I came today and had a really sub-standard lunch. Pork belly was underwhelming, broccoli similar to the frozen stuff, croquettes meh... the only highlight was the cauliflower dish but way too small and Therefore felt overpriced. Really friendly waiting staff but a shame the food... More

We went on a Friday night without a booking. It was really busy and often restaurants like that treat you as if you're so lucky to be let in at the last minute - but the staff were hugely welcoming and friendly.

There were 14 of us meeting up from various parts of the country(s) and it was great to have our own room for 4 hours. The set brunch menu had a good range of dishes and the food was tasty. We were well looked after by the friendly waitress. Definitely recommend.

A useful place for meeting friends - central London, some large-ish areas and a nice decor. Definitely a good choice for visiting friends, very much that London feel. Brunch was fine - we both had the french toast and it was nice enough for the price. I'm a big brunch fan and I found a few of the other dishes... More
