I had the misfortune of agreeing to meet a friend of mine in this bar, when he suggested it, a few months ago. Soon after arriving at the agreed time I received a phone call off him informing me that he would be late, this gave me time to sit back and soak up the supposed atmosphere of one of London's premier bars.

Can 't comment on the food as I've never eaten there, Split into two levels, the upstairs boasts a bar right at the back, with a good number of tables dotted around the front and sides.
