“Number one for pub food in London”; for the 9th year this “convivial” South Bank boozer – with its “hearty” but “superbly precise” British cooking – remains “the benchmark for gastropoub eating”; if only it weren’t “so horribly hard to get a table” – expect to queue and share tables.

"Living on its laurels? A slow roasted shoulder of pork was school dinnerish - small gobbets of meat surrunded by unrendered fat - yuck! Stunning (British) cheeseboard though. Wine prices now too elevated."

"Food seems to have taken a step down in quality over the last year. Service still somewhat offhand. Atmosphere always good, but seems to be not quite the level of a few years ago, overall"

"Really great bistro food, nice selection, mostly seasonal dishes and a different and interesting wine selection. The slight mark down for service only arises because they are so busy and you have to put up with that as the price for a wonderful evening."
