Sadly, the once great Le Mercury must have changed hands and chef as having dined there just last weekend I will not be returning. This is a great shame as Le Mercury was a wonderful restaurant serving lovely rustic bistro cuisine at fantastic prices.

Now they serve what can only be called slop. Don't be fooled, the menu and decor remain the same but the food and service are dreadful. The staff have little to no regard for their diners (baring one waitress who was attentive). The lobster ravioli is now swimming in a horrid watery soup. The lamb is a disaster, cooked until cremated. Even the desserts are ghastly. When the waiter was informed of the disappointing meal he simply smiled and said he would let the chef know.

I don't know if all the capable staff were moved to Le Deuxieme, I hope so as this is a sad end to what was one of the best and most reliable restaurants in London.
