* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

On the fringe of the City, this large tavern is part of the well-known eateries grouped around Bleeding Heart Yard, all under common ownership. A “decent-all-round and handy standby”, it was in particular “a perfect place to meet people for the elusive business meetings that could take place between lockdowns”. Reported by Google as ‘Temporarily closed’ in October 2021, we have rated it on the basis that – as the Square Mile picks up – its return is likely.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Reviewed 4 months, 25 days ago

"Can be a discreet hideaway or a major social occasion. Rooms of varying sizes are available and an open restaurant is in the complex. Classical european dishes; first rate lamb- my chops were cooked to perfection. Unhurried and efficient service with a smile. Friendly and welcoming. Wines a little expensive but a good range."
