A new 120-cover Soho opening – in the renovated Moulin Theatre – looks set to raise the profile of this long-running steakhouse brand (which closed its Covent Garden branch this year). Founded in Fulham over 10 years ago, it serves decent steaks, but wins higher ratings for its “enthusiastic” service.
Well-established steakhouses in Covent Garden and Fulham; reports are generally of “good quality” meals, but they equally owe their popularity to their “accommodating” staff and “fun”, family-friendly atmosphere.
“Good steaks properly cooked – what more do you want of a steakhouse?!”; these Covent Garden and Fulham fixtures also win praise for “amazing” breakfasts and their “family-friendly” approach.
“Consistently attractive over the years”, these Covent Garden and Fulham spots have quite a few fans for their “great choice of steaks”; critics, though, can find this a formula which offers “nothing distinctive”.
