Been here only 3 times now, every time it was for a beer or two. They do limited beers but some nice ones in draught, quite expensive but it is central London so you expect it to be.

I had the pleasure of dining there on A Thursday night. Live music (jazz duo) was an unexpected but great bonus. Highly recommend the oysters and salmon. The service was fun yet professional. Would go back anytime, a lovely atmosphere and staff.
