Just as good as ever. Add Steffen, Sommelier, to our pro list. Chose all world class wine experiences, not over the top cost wise. We love closing this spot. Magnificent food, and attentive service. London hot spot still. Highly recommended.

Delightful lunch with very professional friendly service from the moment we arrived. The barman was charming and very knowledgeable about our chosen gins. Table d`hote lunch choices could not be better. Herbal tisanes cut fresh from the plants finished off a memorable afternoon.
