Quite simply this is still one of the most reasonable Michelin starred restaurants in London.  £23 for 3 courses on the weekend lunch menu (as well as weekday lunch) is outstanding value and the quality of the dishes was wonderful on this visit.  I particularly loved the snacks at the beginning which were on the a la carte, especially the quail’s scotch egg which was utterly sublime.  Wine is also available by the carafe adding to the easy going, comfortable and value for money mood of this restaurant; our chardonnay was very crisp and light and chosen well by the staff to match our dishes.  This is the sort of place one can drop in anytime and get well prepared dishes and which, most importantly taste excellent.  This is a completely safe bet option for great return everytime – really glad to have got back after 5 years (which I didn’t realise had been that long!) and return to what was clearly an upgrade in terms of the dishes.
