Latest critic review: August 01, 2012
Have had my share of steaks (good and bad, expensive and less) in London, this was very bad value. Overcooked when medium rare was requested (sinful),over-priced and boring sauce.
Very much looking forward to this, I ate very little during the day and was exceedingly excited by the prospect of a simple menu and expected both steak and chicken to surpass all expectations. Having read some poor reviews, I kept an open mind and wanted to base everything on my own findings. The 4 of use opted for 750g steak, a whole chicken and all the sides. The chicken was bland, the stuff dry and boring, the gravy lacked seasoning, and the steak, well I have definitely had better meat. Again, lacked flavour. I have to say the best bit by far was the apple and gooseberry pie and custard. That cheered me right up, but I will never go back.
Genius or folly?
There may be a reason no one else offers such a simple food choice. It has to be acknowledged that the limited choice is of good quality and cooked well. Combined with communal tables it strikes me this is a restaurant an accountant would design which is a pity the room itself is rather impressive and the waiting staff first class.
