We have been here several times, and both the food and service is always perfect! It is mostly very busy, so you need to book in advance, especially if you want a table upstairs. We will be back next time we are in London!

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
