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!

Sunday lunch and a chance to catch up with old friends, food was excellant and the service was helpful friendly and efficient. The piano playing in the background was a nice touch whiich added to the atmosphere within the luxurous surroundings of the restaurant itself. Pleased we left room for puddings, they were very special.

I have to separate the lunching experience from the previous experience of having a drink in the hotel lobby beforehand. The one was as dreadful as the other was good. The service in the foyer was simply appalling. I explained that I and my guest had a reservation for lunch but had to wait for a third friend who was arriving by a later train. We were directed to a horrible settee, but when I requested drinks was informed (rudely) that drinks could not be served on the sofa. A table came free and so we moved there and ordered. The drinks took ages to arrive, with the result that when my third guest arrived and it was time to go into lunch, mu guest's glass of wine was scarcely touched. I asked the waitress to carry it into the restaurant for us and she flatly -and again rudely-refused. I am afraid I insisted, and after consulting with her manager, she did with a very bad grace.
We were going to an exhibition in the afternoon and so we lunched early. The dining room was quite deserted at first, which was a bit daunting for it is a very formal high-ceilinged space. However it soon filled up. The food - we all three had tge set lunch which represents very good value - was excellent. Salmon trout on a wilted salad that included a refreshing combination of black olives and lemon slices was delicious and so was the mackeral pate that preceded it, tho toast would have made a better contrast of texture than the bread we were offered. And above all after the dire experience of our pre-lunch drinks, the service was charming, efficient and friendly. Coffee was also extremely good.
