This is where my dad takes the family if we’re all together and he’s feeling generous. A relaxed and cosy environment for catching up, sharing bites and swapping stories.

A great dedicated team that makes you feel like this is a family owned restaurant, working very hard to give you delicious surprises. They succeed in delivering this in a friendly, happy environment. It's nice when you see that the staff is enjoying this as much as you are.

About the restaurant

If you're into name dropping and scandal, then this is the place for afternoon tea. You’ll be unable to resist the temptation to gossip about all the stars who rubbed shoulders there over the years.

If you’ve spent most of your money on West End tickets, this is the perfect place for some pre-show French cuisine. Affordable, relaxed, charming and delicious. You will not be Les Miserable.

About the restaurant

Walking down the huge central staircase already makes you feel cool. Then the live bands and incredible food only add to the Jazzy, mafia vibe. Brilliant if you don’t mind coughing up the dough.

About the restaurant

If you want a London Geezer pub, check out this one owned by ‘Lock Stock’ director Guy Ritchie. Especially good for a Sunday roast, get yourself round and smash some grub down ya Queen of the south.

Best roast dinner ever! So tasty full of flavour! Nothing was bland like a normal pub roast tends to be! Well worth your money here! Duck scotch eggs are to die for it’s a must order and their burrata starter was one of the best flavour combos I’ve had in ages.

About the restaurant

I’m a huge Batman fan, and this place has a (very subtle) caped crusader theme. The cocktail menu is especially inventive and with food this good I may turn into a dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner… FATMAN!

Went here for my birthday and had the best time. The drinks were phenomenal and the experience/service was excellent from start to finish. Even though it's pricey, I think it's well worth the money for a special occasion! I ordered a ton of small plates to share.

About the restaurant

This slick and smooth venue is perfect for any time of the day. The chandeliers sparkle you through breakfast, collapse of a couch for afternoon cream tea, or arrive at sunset in time for the DJ to pump you up for the evening.

5 adults, 4 of whom don’t speak English and 3 children could have been very disorganised and chaotic. However our very patient and charming waitress calmly took our orders, brought over extra chips, bread, olives, water swiftly. Nothing was to much for her to organise. Food delicious, wine superb, excellent ambience. We all agreed that it was a pleasurable experience much enjoyed by all of us. A huge ‘thank you’ to our wonderful waitress.

About the restaurant

A feast for the belly and the eyes. I nearly licked the floor, it looked so beautiful. Luckily the pan-Asian inspired menu was equally tasty.

Had a fabulous evening with superb food, just thought the music level was far too loud as could hear any clear conversations with the person sitting next to me Other than that I could not fault anything else

If you love dinners with the swimmers… there is nowhere better to whet your appetite. You literally walk through the fish before you sit and devour them.

If you’re a pescatarian with a taste for quality, then look no further. This is veg and fish dining at its finest. Make sure you put your best glad rags on, because if you have someone you want to impress… this is the one for you.
