Summary

This first-floor dining room of the large (but nowadays somewhat overlooked) Smithfield venue by the meat market was one of the 1990s fave raves. As “a safe choice for an informal business lunch” it still has its fans, but even some supporters acknowledge the food “is tasty without being amazing” and harsher critics dismiss the cooking as too “colourless”.

Summary

“The steaks are OK (if nothing to write home about)” at this first-floor dining room by Smithfield meat market. It’s “quite pricey for what’s on offer” though, not helped by the challenging acoustics of the space which can make it very noisy.

Summary

“For a run-of-the-mill brasserie, this first floor overlooking Smithfield meat market (hence the beef-heavy menu) is absolutely fine” even if the cooking is no better than “acceptable”. Fans say it’s “fun”, but its acoustics mean it’s “very noisy” to the extent it can seem “pretty unpleasant”.

Summary

“Reliable… OK… so very average” – this first-floor Smithfield brasserie is “nothing to write home about” nowadays; its steak-heavy formula is just about serviceable for an informal business lunch, but service is “haphazard” and “the acoustics suck”!
