We elected to take advantage of a special Set Menu deal. Whilst the glass of champagne and the starter of sashimi were both very good, the main of Chicken Milanese was pretty underwhelming. The place was packed out, even on a Monday in January, so...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.

There is a modest area inside the restaurant and a good number of tables alfresco. I am sure that if you ask to reserve an area they would consider it given enough notice
