To be fair, We ate a set menu lunch on a Groupon Voucher. And supposedly themed to match the Pop Art exhibition, 'American Dream'. It was 'American Nightmare'. Starter: innocent small piece of chicken drowned in some version of Marie-Rose sauce with a couple of slivers of raw celery. Main: cheeseburger with bacon and fries, a dry, wizened little patty that splintered when cut, and what appeared to be and tasted like fake bacon. Chips, McCain, I think, were ok. Dessert: Boston cream pie, a substantial slab of cake so hard and stale tasting that I left it completely and told the waitress it was inedible.

The red wine was perfectly quaffable, the service was pleasant (if uninterested in my complaint), and the surroundings of course are bright and airy with comfy seating. Why in heaven's name with such a lovely venue and a captive clientele do they completely wipe out all the pluses with such appalling food? Trust me, at this level of food McDonald's is a better eaterie, no kidding.

Exorbitant price for mediocre, luke warm food and indifferent service . I would not repeat the experience.
