This former Theatreland idol still wows fans with its “slick and polished” style and “predictable” nursery fare; those who remember the glory days when this was London’s favourite restaurant, though, may find its current performance “embarrassing” – time, they say, “for a complete overhaul”.
STOP PRESS: Closed for renovations. Reopening May 2015.
