It started with the coffee. For £3.50 you get one small cup of filter coffee for the same price at what used to be the St John hotel you got a whole cafetiere. I asked for two scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and asked that instead of toast that I could get salad. Did I get any? No. Did I get any toast either? No. Rachel had an egg royal and although you can pay double to get two eggs, £9 gets you what can only be described as a lonely looking poached egg.

The wings were boneless and were ideal to have with cocktails but could have been more seasoned with both spice and salt for our palates. The sandwich was good and probably would have suited HI.
Oskar was there himself and was very chatty and the cocktails good and unusual in their taste and ingredients.
We orders the squid, which was good the sea bream which was ok, the trout which I didn't like but others did.
The 3 standouts were the presa, the underblade and the burger which were all delicious and I would have again.
The tomato salad was lovely as was the butter lettuce. The parsnip chips really didn't need the honey but still got finished.
We has order the leg of lamb to share which I found to be the most disappointing of all the dishes. I expected it to be slow cooked and falling apart, instead, it was rare and in some parts seemed uncooked. The 3 makes still ate it all up but I couldn't eat any of it.
