"This is not simple plates presented pleasurably like Rochelle Canteen or Noble Rot. It’s cooking that could let its hair down." READ REVIEW

"His cooking is showy but playful; fiddly but accessible. An amuse bouche included a “pea ice cream lollipop” and a “Jammie Dodger” with a red pepper filling." READ REVIEW

"It was all very pretty – but whether it amounted to more than the sum of its parts is another question, especially when the sum in question is 26 quid." READ REVIEW

 
Critics' score: 9 AA Gill Sunday Times
Reviewed on April 03, 2016
"This is all a strikingly old-fashioned concept that celebrates lots of things that contemporary restaurants are trying to get away from. But they make the type of food I have loved for years, with a precision I feared was vanishing." READ REVIEW

 
Critics' score: 6 Fay Maschler Evening Standard
Reviewed on March 16, 2016
"Oven-baked cod with “slow stewed” haricot beans, pea purée and chorizo consommé is perfectly judged and perfectly cooked. The vegetarian option of potato ravioli has an impact way beyond expectation due to the earthy, woodsy essence of mushroom and truffle in which the well-seasoned parcels are steeped." READ REVIEW
