A well known Mayfair pub and dining room just off Hay's Mews and around the corner from Berkeley Square Gardens - as prime Mayfair territory as a local boozer's likely to get. This, though, is a little smarter than most pubs, with plush leather banquettes, swathes of well-buffed woods and chandeliers crafted from antlers. Expect the odd famous face, too.
Although there's a good enough selection of real ale to attract drinkers, it's the food that proves the focus here. Dishes range from poshed-up pub grub such as Kashmiri chicken korma and beer battered haddock with 'proper' mushy peas to more refined restaurant fare, such as pan-fried lemon sole, char-grilled côte de bœuf and grilled lamb cutlets with a cassoulet of aubergine, courgette, swede and butter beans, served with a mint jus.
The wine list includes new world options but relies mostly on big-hitting regions such as Burgundy, Piedmont, Languedoc-Roussillon, Loire, Margaux and Rioja. More than 20 are available by the glass, too.
