service was pleasant and food was good but plates were cold and food on my plate tepid which was a little disappointing. However I am a Davys fan and will go back!
Good food well prepared. Efficient staff and great wines. A convenient venue for a long four hour lunch. Very clean all round. Will book again.
One of those places it's always good to go back to - a little bit of old London where the modern world is very much alive and welcome.
