Visited the brasserie quite often for brunch/lunch/drinks and it never disappoints. The Shakshuka eggs are to die for. We do miss the pianist though!

A really good (if late) way to lick off a lazy Saturday. The breakfast menu is great, and has something for everyone (full English to toast and preserves and a lot in between). Decent tea and coffee too.

I was expecting a rather more of this restaurant. Food: the duck buns with hoisin sauce starter wasn't quite hot enough; I suspect it had been sitting around for a while waiting to be brought to our table. The main course of pork schnitzel had...More
