Had a lovely meal with friends, must say it does get very busy on a Friday! And can take a while to get a drink from the bar! Although it's like that in most places in London.

Went for a few drinks with a friend and the service was slow. I also found the door staff to be incredibly dismissive and rude. Not sure I will be making a trip back here anytime soon!

I come here regularly with friends and colleagues and always get the seared tuna and a cocktail. The service is fast and the food is always nice. Amongst the city this place is truly a gem!

Found in the financial district in the city (where pubs are hard to find). Spacious, well decorated, a great place to have a conversation without yelling over music. Good selection of wines, beer and mixed drinks.
