Venue 7: An impressive space dominated by a Damien Hurst creation. Light and airy but uninspiring apart from the centrepiece.
Atmosphere 5: Positioned by the door it didnt really feel as though we were in the restaurant proper. There was a good buzz in the room though.
Starters 4: Bland Yorkshire pudding with a delicious chicken liver pate. Nice variety of exotic mushrooms but cold and fairly tasteless. Shrimp and lettuce instantly forgettable.
Main 4: An ok chicken leg more of a novelty with its foot still attached. Didnt have any breast but was told it was dry. The steak was dry too and vastly inferior to the Hawksmoor. At least the English mustard was HOT.
Dessert 5: I quite liked the marshmellow fondue as the chocolate was delicious. Cheese board consisted of a single piece of cold Westcombe cheddar for 6.25. Not good.
Service 7: The staff were very nice but service was slow and they had to be summoned on more than one occasion. We were served by three different waiting staff over the course of the evening.
VFM 4: The whole experience was below average and 25 for a bland chicken was too much. The wine list however had a good selection and 26 for a decent Chenin Blanc and 30 for a delicious Malbec wasnt too onerous. First and last visit for me.
Service 7: I have no complaints here.
