Summary

The “bizarrely brilliant location” of an architectural salvage shop in a grand Georgian mansion on the Vauxhall Cross gyratory provides a “quirky setting for inventive seasonal cooking and cocktails”. The food is “unexpectedly lovely”: “lunch a bargain and dinner a treat”“in a unique ambience surrounded by reclaimed chandeliers”. (“It’s always fun to spot the new arrivals and mentally fit out your dream house!”)

Summary

“A huge, OTT architectural salvage and antiques shop” in a massive Georgian house in Vauxhall makes “a quirky and unusual setting” for this modern bistro. Service can be “a bit slow” and even fans find the food “variable”, but hit lucky and a meal here is “fantastic”.

Summary

The “surreal” set up – “an eccentric but charming dining room full of reclaimed objects from the adjacent architectural salvage operation” – is the special draw to this vast Georgian house, at Vauxhall Cross; on the downside, service can be “shoddy”, and “you pay a lot” nowadays for food that arguably “tries too hard”.

"Worth a visit just because of its quirky decor. But the food and service are good enough. A place that one might go to more if you were working nearby. There's a very pleasant bar which is a lovely refuge from the noisy, congested roads around Vauxhall. But no one has yet approached me from M16 to join up."
