After a little refit in spring 2010, this upmarket brasserie is busy nearly every mealtime, a Belgravia clientele venturing towards Victoria coach station in order to partake in roast rack and braised shoulder of lamb, and a pumpkin, spinach and pine nut wellington.
The Sunday roasts are worthy of a Waitrose TV ad, but you’ll pay £27 for the 28-day-aged fillet from the Castle of Mey estate in Caithness. The layout of the main bar lends itself more to dining, but you can drink there.
A 30-strong wine selection includes a dozen at around £6.50 a glass (Levin Wines sauvignon blanc from the Loire Valley, De Alto Rioja) or £22 a bottle. Cocktails include a Basil Fawlty (Belvedere vodka, apple juice, passionfruit and own-made ginger syrup). You’ll find Asahi and Bitburger among the bottled beers, plus Deuchars and Adnams on tap.
