This informal Holborn restaurant is one of two Hush Brasseries in London - and the little sister to the well-known Hush flagship in Mayfair. The tagline is 'coffee to cocktails via lunch and dinner', which sounds just about spot on.

Those lunches and dinners come by way of accessible brasserie fare of an international slant - think crispy squid with saffron aioli, mac and cheese gratin, pulled pork brioche buns, burgers, rib-eye steaks and lobster roils. Keep an eye out for the Hush high tea, too - available with or without gin.

The drinks list features classic cocktails, Meantime beers and wines that focus on the big-hitting regions from worlds old and new. Spritzers and iced teas prove popular.

Unfortunately my second visit to Hush for a team breakfast went no better than before - actually it was worse! We booked a table for 8am and when I arrived at 8.05 they hadn't event opened up! We were then seated by a friendly waitress who offered to take rucksacks and coats the cloakroom (I thought we were off to a good start!). Immediately we were asked if we wanted to order although only half our group had arrived. We asked for the complimentary coffee (again a nice touch) and were offered cappuccino, americano etc. My colleague opted for americano but I stuck with a filter. This then took forever to come! We then moved on to ordering our breaky. The waitress continually made funny comments to people's orders which I think was meant to be friendly but actually made us feel a little awkward. It all began to be brought out in reasonable time but to they got my order wrong. She apologised, gave it to me and said my correct order was on its way which did come out in record time! I went for the waffles which I think was a big mistake - a shop bought cold waffle with blueberries plonked on top. The pancake stacks looked massive however the bacon wasn't crispy and the pancakes apparently not fluffy. A colleague also ordered the porridge with apple compote on top which came to a staggering £8! When we asked to pay the waitress asked each person to come up individually to the till, which I can see would make it easier to split the bill but she was so bossy and rushing us it made for a horrible way to leave the restaurant. My colleague who ordered the americano was charged for this (there was a mix up between what is complimentary and what is not), the waitress did take it off the bill but not after telling my colleague that SHE should be clearer next time - errr I think your staff should be retrained on the rules?

Overall the food was okkk but the service really let it down!

Hush is great for breakfast meetings if you work nearby. Good coffee, nice pastries, really good cooked breakfast and quiet enough for a meeting without being completely dead. For lunch, again good for meetings as it's a nice buzz and not too loud but the food is slightly overpriced in my opinion. Tasty, but overpriced. Hush do a good cocktail happy hour after work so it's also good for after work drinks. Overall, mainly a good meeting spot rather than a place you would go for excellent food.
