Thank you for such an amazing experience, we were made to feel very welcome admist the COVID-19 conditions.
Food was very tasty and service was excellent. Great setting, shame there was not more people given the circumstances. Pie was amazing.
Will definitely come back.

Saw the chef on James Martin programme and my husband loved the idea of the black pudding pork pie that was featured but sadly that wasn’t on the menu. However we had a fabulous meal of curried mutton pie and a dessert of baked Alaska with pear and lemon. Plus a great wine flight of sparkling wines. We’ll certainly be going again.

Good British menu and tasty food. Nice setting and good portion sizes. If anything, a little loud.

We went for a Saturday lunch and found the service a little lacklustre and lazy, but were happy to ignore this as all the other staff members who approached the table were very pleasant. My parter asked for his steak medium rare and it arrived looking like it had not seen a pan, he isn’t squeamish so ate 2/3 of it but it was a bit of a shame to ask for a preference and ignore it. My pie was also extremely salty, and the sides of chips and house salad were both over seasoned. Was by no means a terrible experience but these few niggles mean I wouldn’t want to come back considering the price tag.

Excellent ambience and attentive but discrete service. Food was outstanding. Only point is that the wine was on the pricey side (several tables of diners around us did not drink wine which tells that story more eloquently). Nonetheless, it was a superb meal which we thoroughly enjoyed and we would definitely return.

Bullet points..
Staff were great, made the visit, barman and waiter particularly good! Restaurant Manager was also on her game.
Drinks were interesting and tasty, 2nd drink wasn't what I ordered, previous server rectified it immediately.
We had a lovely time.
Unfortunately.... the main event, Pie, missed every mark.
I have emailed the Head Chef.

Maitre D refused to give us our table without saying we would eat breakfast (1130) despite entirely empty restaurant. Told we could perch on a table which had someone else on. We eventually gave in and said we'd have food as well as coffees. Then shown to small a table just by the bar, not in the main restaurant. Then rushed to order food by 1130 because they wanted to get ready for lunch serving. Coffee and food fine, but welcome and service terrible. Avoid.

Exceptionally good food; the pies are a "can't miss" experience when in London!

Food was just “ok”
Rather disappointing for the amount charged.
Good ambience but food was only average and therefore overpriced

We went after reading about the pies. A very grand looking room and busy for a Monday lunch. Had the steak and kidney pudding which were huge. Would recommend
