The night started badly, not only was it raining cats and dogs but a huge traffic jam had us running late. All was forgotten as soon as we stepped through the door. Having called the restaurant to advise we were running a little late, there were not only aware of the holdups but were extremely helpful.
We were seated at a large table in a warm and atmospheric room with some very comfortable chairs (never to be underestimated). The waiting staff were superb, always ready when you needed but otherwise bordering on the invisible.
Being a non meat eater (yes I am aware of the nature of the restaurant) I was very impressed by the availability of veggie options, not something I was sure would be available at all times. My husband on the other hand being a very dedicated carnivore loved the steak he ordered. A very good looking piece of sirloin arrived, cooked perfectly and was accompanied by what he described as "more mash than I was expecting"
The only minor downside to the evening was the arrival of a group who proceeded to get expensively drunk and brayingly loud but this is not something that can be held against the restaurant.
Our next visit is being planed as I write
