Harden's survey result
“Marianne Lumb nails it, spot on, time and time again” at her “very special, petite restaurant” (just 14 covers) in Bayswater. La patronne herself “is not only a brilliant chef, but also a charming and welcoming host” and the “tiny but lovely” set-up is “perfect for a romantic evening” (if “without a lot of buzz”). “The set menu is chosen with good taste rather than extravagance, and the cooking is peerless perfection” (“it is rare that a tasting menu is all hits but this place manages it”). Finally, “the wine list is a real draw too – a terrific selection at prices that are actually affordable”.
“Exceptional in so many ways” – Marianne Lumb’s “tiny space for 12” is “like eating in someone’s front room, but with better food”, and with the “small kitchen (a vision of calm efficiency) entirely on view”. “It is rare that a tasting menu is all hits: this is” and “some of her creations are breathtaking”. “Truly welcoming staff” manage the confines of the space well, and it’s an experience many find “romantic”.
