The ambiance here is certainly minimalist, but the prices certainly are not. And the service could use some work. Tiny as the plates are, though, most of them do pack a flavorful punch.

First of all, the menu is a set thing, and while you can substitute certain items if you have any allergies or restrictions, you still have to pay for the whole shebang, which can cost upwards of £50 for the...more

Awesome. Proper fine dining done very well. Cheeky 4 course taster menu, which I'm led to believe is the only option.

It's a beautiful spot, open, airy, great natural light and it is easy to sit there and enjoy a meal. I had a...more
