The attentive staff, excellent snacks and superb bartending skills (THANKS Lukas for the PERFECT Cosmopolitans) make this a lovely hideout nestled between St. James Park and Trafalgar Square. Flexible seating allows for a solitary retreat or a gathering of friends. Beautiful! Cheers!

Just the place for a light salad. We had been busy in the City in the morning and needed lunch. Caesar salad and chips came to the rescue. Yummy! Well presented, well priced, well served. A glass of cider and a glass of beer helpedtoo!
