The decor was lovely and the staff very helpful. However I cannot recommend this restaurant. I booked through bookatable, taking advantage of their weekday menu offer (2 courses for £21 or 3 courses for £25). The offer did not indicate that there was a restricted menu, only had to choose from the weekday menu. When we arrived that was not the case. You only had a choice of 2 starters / 2 main course and 2 deserts from the menu. Which greatly restricted our choice, in the end what was on offer was so limiting we choose from the main menu and paid full price. The food itself was hit and miss, my starter was bland and uninspiring yet my guests had very nice starters our main course was fine but rather boring and not very imaginative. The wines and cocktails were overpriced. Overall, I felt it was overpriced and would advise you to spend your money on a cheaper venue with better food.

We were welcomed warmly, our table was pleasantly located although there were some tables that had we been shown to I would have had concerns due to the proximity of the next table. I was at a loss to understand why we were served bread without any side plates, this did not appear to be an omission as none of the tables were supplied with side plates.Although the tables were cleaned after the first course I found it disconcerting to be surrounded by crumbs. As the only person to drink alcohol in our party I was disappointed with the wine selection by the glass. The service was at all times courteous and discreet. The food was very good and although not the most glamorous item on the menu the burger was really very good, the steak was also excellent but I do feel that the price was excessive given that it was served only with a sauce and no accompaniments which came at extra cost. Would I recommend the restaurant yes, but the prices are a tad prohibitive even for a special occasion.

Stunning venue, simply beautiful building. Meal was 'ok' but expensive for what it was, wine very expensive. Service nothing special.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful and location. The setting and through service were excellent. The food was ok. My choice of haslet and haddock were excellent, especially the chips. Unfortunately my husband chose the crab and flank steak which he did not rate at all, especially as steak was £25 with no sides or anything. My daughter is a vegetarian and chose falafel to start which was good but artichokes were very bland. Food and drink was expensive but it was an experience and worth visiting just to see the hotel.

Booked this restaurant for a catch up with friends. The restaurant is beautiful and the renovation to hotel is worth going to see. The food itself was nothing special for the price. Cod served a little cold and roast dinner set menu a bit limited and uninspiring. Roast potatoes very greasy.
Service was incredibly slow, but friendly. We had a nice afternoon though and very convenient for travelling to and from St Pancras international.

Lovely setting, great staff, mediocre food
The good stuff - great architecture, super friendly staff and specifically one of the nicest Sommeliers I have ever had the pleasure of asking for something lovely and cheap from.
The not so good stuff - well it's the food really. It's hard to describe, but I just didn't get what the intent was - and the execution seemed rather indifferent as well. A Mackerel tartare that was lost on the plate, felt like a jumble of ingredients rather than a dish and was bland rather than subtle. Poached hake - looked a bit boring, tasted of very little and was actually a bit overcooked - not bad as such just not very good. The puddings were crazy - I know it seems silly to complain about too much food but less would be definitely more - I felt like I was in a coffee shop with a portion of carrot cake the size of a bus - once again I just didn't know what they were aiming for - I didn't get the joke.
I mentioned that the staff were great (genuinely warm and friendly) and very speedy - one recommendation - is to actually slow down - I don't want to feel like I am in a fast food restaurant and I don't want to be hurried. The speed of service sometimes felt that I was been hustled along too much.
Lastly - per head cover charges AND service costs added to the bill are just plain silly - I love tipping, I really do, especially to show appreciation to hard working teams but after a mediocre meal this was simply annoying.

This was a great brunch in a fantastic setting: one of my favourite dining rooms in London. Their brunch offer is amazing value! Only negative comment was the service was slightly off the mark at times. The receptionist who welcomed us/returned our coats was quite sullen, and we had to chase a couple of things we'd ordered that didn't arrive. Other than these minor blips it was excellent, however, and I'd return without hesitation!
