3 of us went for lunch. We chose the table d'hote menu(fixed price).
Food was uneven in execution . Watercress soup was, basically, dense puree of watercress with a scattering of croutons. There was no discernible flavour to the broth(if it existed) and not even a bit of cream or other smoother . Hence I was left with an Exorcist type fear of all that thick green going down one way.....
A rib eye steak "bordelaise" was enjoyed by one of us, but the other had a miserable time as the cut he had was full of fat and nerves (they graciously took it off the bill) .The pommes dauphinois was burned on top, so that too was left by one who had that as a veg. The rhubarb "roulade" was some kind of sponge (or bread-it looked so pale?) with a schmeer of red on the inside of a very loose attempt to roll it like a swiss roll, served with vanilla ice cream(an extra).
If you wonder where well-to-do English people over 50 go to eat- this is the place. No oligarchs;no french;no tourists; the entire restaurant looked and dressed like the cast of Downton abbey.
