Bang average steak and quite expensive for what you get. I had the ribeye and could have got one in Tesco and cooked it better myself. Won't go back.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.

grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
