What a breakfast! Huge plate of great ingredients, beautifully cooked and a pot of tea, served in Victorian splendour. Always knew it is one of the best places to meet and work but what a place to eat!


As you would expect. A beautiful building that exudes history and class. Great service and wonderful food. A well-stocked bar, all as you would expect.

The best kept secret exclusive place to dine! An evening spent enjoying the fine food of this most excellent restaurant is worth the trip to London.
