"At the moment, the atmosphere is thin and a bit needy, but in the long, varied buffet of our epicurean culture this is a restaurant that plays to the national strengths of inquisitiveness, internationalism, an openness to imported methods and ingredients, and a central understanding that the founding dinner faith of our simple cultural trinity, our indivisible three-in-one, is meat and two veg. Amen." READ REVIEW

"All were well prepared, as were more straightforward assemblies such as onglet with potato cake, watercress and aïoli and a chicken, bacon and leek pie served with sprout tops. As ever, the gospel of St John provides holy guidance in the kitchen. St Giovanni comes in handy too." READ REVIEW
