The paté was a fine parfait: glossy, sleek and smooth, and not aggressively liverish; the bread sauce spot on; the game chips (and some runner beans) good too…

Food is good, if not revelatory, but then it doesn’t need to be – this is a popular, buzzy place, filled with everyone from groups of creatives and theatregoers to lone business diners. All are treated to proficient service from a well-drilled crew…

Rarely have I found such a dashing place serving such crashing food. It’s smoothly done but tradition without a twist can be deadly…

My main of Anglesey sea bass with marsh samphire was perfectly cooked; a generous portion of fish with lovely crispy skin and tender, succulent and flakey flesh. The samphire was on the crunchy side of al-dente which, I think, is about right…

There’s no hiding behind drizzled balsamic vinegar, outré ingredients and elaborate sauces with plain dishes like these. They have to be the best ingredients, impeccably cooked, and to the Townhouse’s credit they are…

I can’t recommend a cloyingly over-sweet Queen of puddings to you, unless you are a diabetic in hypoglycaemic shock (in which case, best stop reading and call an ambu­lance), but I must recommend this restaurant…

The menu isn’t extraordinary; I think it’s fair to say the food is good enough, in a collegiate, common-room way, without showing off…

There is no way these people could make a bad fist of the dining itself. It would be like Lance Armstrong trying to fall off a bike…

While the chervil-boosted shellfish sauce and the mussels bobbing in it were great, a fillet of cod on top was overcooked.Much less impressive was the salt-beef with caraway dumplings and pickle…

So, ten out of ten, you might think. But, in fact, no. The dish I was looking forward to most of all, the caramelised sweetbreads on a Lincolnshire onion tart, arrived quite horribly over-salted…

This is much more than an exercise in nostalgia. In amongst Soho’s “cutting edge” fashion consciousness, it’s a place with a sense of calm authority and conviction. A lack of fuss does not mean a lack of attention to detail – quite the opposite in fact…

But I don’t care. I’m not sure why I love DST more than, say, Hix, which is arguably, a ‘better’ restaurant, but I do…

My first course is excellent – a firm, rich soufflé with lots of deep, fishy flavour – but the mince is a little on the utilitarian side…

Pan-fried ray (£18.50) came with a classic, tangy sauce of brown shrimps, capers and parsley, all combining into a great plateful, the only fault, if it’s a fault, being the over-generous portion…

The menu itself – apparently unchanging from day to day – is full of known and usual dishes, some very simple, but they are all very well done. The fish soup is intense…

It was hard to dislike The Dean Street Town House. I think the key is the immensely appealing menu – they even offer tea and cakes in the afternoon – and the simple attractive decor…

The mains are exactly what you’d expect to see on a great British menu … if I were presented this little list at the final supper I certainly wouldn’t have any complaints…

You have fun at Dean Street Townhouse – and believe me, everyone at every table was smiling. When you leave, it’s with a sense that not only has your visit been greatly appreciated, but that you would be very welcome to stay the night (…) and that if you really must go, then everyone would like it very much if you were to come back soon…
