This is a superb piece of British history - and it increases the pleasure to eat here after one has an understanding of what the restaurant represents, how it evolved, and how it is maintaining traditions of British cuisine. The wait staff have improved dramatically for our most recent visit. The menu shows the sheer pleasure a gourmet gourmand can have in straightforward, "clean" British cuisine. The trick is to plan the flavors, and revel in the meats and the sweets without seeking the complex sauces and non-traditional fare. The meal is pricey - but the ingredients and the ambience make this, for my book, a very good blend of value for money, both intellectual and gastronomical.
