"All these dishes, some of which were faultless, felt ill-matched. Interesting, yes. But as you and I know, when we risk a trip away from the telly, interesting ain’t good enough." READ REVIEW

"There’s joy in the fact that Hicce doesn’t care. Lacey’s creme caramel has quickly jumped into 2018’s not-to-be-missed dishes for London gluttons, which is ironic, because it spent years as a beige, retro lump on a dessert menu that marked a diner out as tragically safe. Lacey shows us its enduring appeal with a stiffly set but seductively yielding yellow pudding. It is a sweet bowl of 70s shtick and modern-day swagger, and you will be more relevant with every vanilla-and-caramel-syrup-laden spoon." READ REVIEW

"Hicce, despite being co-owned by a former Murano head chef and backed by the redoubtable Angela Hartnett herself, manages — like the original Grain Store — to be admirable without being entirely adorable." READ REVIEW

"It is early days for hicce which perhaps opened to order — there was an ordained day at the Coal Drops Yard collection — rather than when they felt absolutely ready. The menu seems sketchy rather than substantial." READ REVIEW
