"It was a cracking meal. At its seafood and kebab heart, it carried something of the savour of Brighton but with a heft and seriousness that was pure Tower of London." READ REVIEW

"Here is a savvy kitchen, maybe even a millennial kitchen, open to global influences but not overcome. Within the general encouragement to share is Moroccan spiced smoked goat with flatbreads, aubergine, tahini, chickpeas and harissa yoghurt and on Sundays a 35-day dry-aged roast sirloin of beef with the traditional accoutrements.

"Highly commended was a juicy, flaky hunk of halibut in a light curry sauce, fringed with slices of crisped-up cauliflower and perched on a sort of nest of kedgeree. They’d run out of turbot, which is the fish they normally serve this way; but the halibut worked pretty well. The dish was beautifully displayed, too." READ REVIEW
