    This place is very expensive and overrated. Crab cakes were quite good, but all the vegeterian sides were meh, and the soup was too salty. Service is very long too. Definitely not worth it.

    If you're having breakfast order the waffle. It is comes with the most delicious cream I've ever had.

    Squid salad is weird. The pheasant was good, but not amazing. Food is a little underwhelming for such high-end prices.

    Eat at the bar for a fine meal. Restaurant menu if you ask but the bar steak is a fine meal itself. Crowded so arrive early.

    Love the duck, beef ribs, and crab cake here. Bone marrow wasn't that bad, but wouldn't try it again, pretty tasteless oily dish.
