As usual the food was sublime, one of the best spaghetti dishes I've ever had, strange to be saying that about One Dev and not some fancy Italian restaurant but wonderful all the same. We both had the cheese to finish which was fresh and perfect, locally sourced and seemingly artisan and was a complete treat accompanied by a gloopy, heavenly vintage port.
I might sound like a bit of a moaner but our the experience was marred somewhat by the addition of an arbitrary 10% "service charge" to our bill, there were only 2 of us for goodness sake! I would have actually tipped 20% in cash, which I usually do for decent service, but didn't bother due to this sneaky carry on. The waitress said she could take it off the bill but why then put it on in the first place? I realise that this wasn't the waiting staff's fault but their management are doing the staff out of cash tips with this behaviour.
Anyway, rant over. Fabulous lunch in exquisite surroundings.
