Pub grub is elevated by Michel Albert Roux to great effect at this “posh pub”, “handily close to the horrors of Oxford Circus” – a surprisingly “good place to meet for business” and “worth going out of your way for”. Top Menu Tip – “take friends and order the cheese toastie on the sly, then watch their faces light up when the magnificent beast of a sandwich is presented”.

Michel Roux Junior has reimagined the British pub as only a French master chef could at this fine hostelry near Oxford Circus – a partnership with the neighbouring Langham Hotel, who carved the pub out of some under-used space. “Simple British dishes are presented as you have never tasted them before” (“shepherd’s pie and Scotch eggs were particularly memorable, but everything was delightful”) and its “great buzzy ambience” helps make it an excellent West End meeting place.

“The perfect London pub,” say fans of Michel Roux’s “sophisticated” bar with “exceptional food” near Oxford Circus. It’s not really a pub, of course; it’s been converted from part of the historic five-star Langham hotel. But there’s an undeniable buzz around this latest incarnation: “How can you make the humble cheese toastie taste this good?”

“Setting the standards for a central London bar” – Michel Roux’s three-year-old near Oxford Circus “has found a real niche” as a top West End rendezvous (“almost too successful for its own good” during peak times, when it risks becoming too thronging and loud). “You wouldn’t know that it is part of a hotel” (it’s actually carved out from – and a partnership with – the neighbouring five-star hotel, The Langham) and the unusually “classy” conversion of the space “burnishes the large, pub-style setting”. “Its food is stretching the concept of gastropub food” in terms of ambition, but “definitely worth the money”.

"Superior gastro pub that benefits from its proximity to the Landau next door. Really great food, far fancier than your regular gastro pub "
