We were sat outside. It's hard to get a seat here so we...more

It took London to get really scorching for me to properly appreciate this place.

Find a spot in their vast outside area, get one of their well chosen bottles of wine and a plate of bread and slab of cheese, all within a minute of Charing Cross and at fairly reasonable prices. Considering. There was a BBQ with some mean looking steak that the wine was just begging for too. I could not...more
