I've got the cookbooks, watched the programmes and was beside myself with joy and happiness at the prospect of eating in one of the restaurants during a recent trip to London. It lived up to all expectations. Communal dining at two long tables is such...More

We were staying at an Airbnb in the area, and did not manage to get a reservation for dinner. We were delighted that they could accommodate us for breakfast at 10 o'clock on a Saturday morning with only a 15 minute wait. Without question, this...More
