The dining room here is modelled on a classic French brasserie, and is the setting for a menu that sets out to be flexible. Small plates, a la carte options and ‘market specials’ are available, as well as a three course 'tray rapide' lunchtime option comprising one small plate, one market special and a dessert – all served at the same time.
Expect dishes such as stuffed cabbage with Scottish pheasant and foie gras, sautéed girolles and parsnip purée, and Scottish sirloin steak with béarnaise sauce and fries. There is also a small charcuterie bar, where you can have a drink accompanied by a light meal or snacks.
The St James Bar, open from 8am to midnight, has a drinks list including a number of cocktails, such as the Pop Corn Negroni, made with popcorn-infused bourbon, Campari and Antica Formula.

What a pleasant surprise. This exceeded all expectations from the moment we stepped through the door. The staff were very professional, without being cold and injected personality into their service. Any of our questions about the wine or food was met with enthusiasm and we really felt like they cared about giving us a top notch experience. The food was equally as impressive, perfectly timed and some of the best I have had in London. I will definitely be returning and is well worth the money.
We had a lovely evening here on Monday - the staff were delightful, obviously very proud of working here, had all of the answers to our questions and were attentive without being overbearing. The brioche smoked salmon starter was light and full of flavour and the snails were the best my husband had ever had - served out of their shells with a parsnip sauce (I think) but whatever it was it was delicious. The 'Welsh charcuterie' was indeed fantastic, especially the air dried lamb. All in all a lovely evening with exciting French food and excellent service - we will be back!
