Had lunch here with an old friend. Initially we were offered a table right by the entrance but after asking to move they relocated us to a better table. The menu is traditional, the food excellently prepared. The service is great. Buzzy atmosphere. Very good.

We made our second visit here with high expectations and to be honest were a little disappointed with the service. The staff were not really interested in taking our drinks or food order and when pouring the champagne were a little slap dash. The dressed...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Not obligatory but this is a venue where you would look out of place in jeans and trainers. Smart casual I would say with or without a jacket. Hope this helps.
