“Captains of industry rub shoulders with A-listers” at Corbin & King’s perennially “exciting” grand café/brasserie, by the Ritz – its “old-school glamour” makes it “great for impressing people”; the “hit ’n’ miss” food is not really the point, but absolutely everyone agrees this is the home of “the most glamorous breakfast in town”.

"Fantastic place for afternoon tea. They went out of their way to accommodate my nut allergy. The food was delicious- delicate finger sandwiches, warm scones and amazing cakes. The staff were brilliant as always and the restaurant was bustling and busy but not noisy."

"I just cannot understand what all the hype is about - intensely ordinary atmosphere and average food. Worth avoiding if your expectations are high."

"A nice warm greeting as we entered for our late breakfast/brunch and they found our booking straight away. We were taken to our table (a decent size considering only two of us). The interior still looks absolutely fantastic. Because of the styling and the type of place it is quite noisy but this adds to the ambience. They took our drinks order and that came up ok, took our food order and this came up no problems. My Wife tried the Caramelised Grapefruit which she informed me was delicious. I had the Prunes with orange & ginger which were fantastic. Our English breakfast then came up - the scrambled egg was luscious, bacon perfect, sausage nice but not outstanding and the rest was fine. We asked the waiter for some water that was the last contact we had with a waiter until we managed to catch someone's eye to get the bill. Our water that we requested did not materialise (to be fair they did not try and charge for it). Not once did any member of staff ask if the food was OK. It seemed rather chaotic in there. The lack of service definitely spoiled an otherwise good experience. I know the restaurant has recently re-opened after a refit so maybe the waiting staff are new. Would definitely go there again but maybe give a little time for the staff to settle before going."
