The Blackface lamb comes with some loin and belly and one large chop, and a proper ribbon of its own bronzed fat at its back, and tastes of a life properly led…

The kitchen comes into its own with pudding. The chef is more pâtissier than saucier. An almond tart is exemplary, Ayrshire set cream — aka panna cotta — was just set enough to quiver…

[It] is, at first glance, just another revamped boozer in Central London serving modern British cuisine, and could have made a very tidy profit just trotting out the usual crowd-pleasers and marking up South African wine. Instead, it quite unexpectedly served me and a couple of friends one of the most interesting and exciting and – crucially – technically impressive meals I can remember eating in W1…

The service is friendly and efficient, the wood-panelled dining room with its eye-catching staircase is handsome and, most importantly of all, the seasonal menu is top notch…

A boring old utterly brilliant London restaurant embracing all the most important principles of breeding, husbandry, butchery, cooking and presentation in a lively, youthful, relaxed environment…

I would give it another go – the menu is in perpetual flux, with some promising dishes, and the place is so central. But its faint primness, set against hit-and-miss food, makes me think it’s attending to the wrong details…

I can’t eat enough monkfish at the moment, and I suspect I’ll never have it cooked as well as the monkfish-and-leek gratin here. Though too dear at £22.50, it is such a wonderful marriage of juicy, muscular white flesh and buttery sauce that I’d call it divine if only I believed in divinity…

This was a pretty much perfect all-round eatery. A shopping lunch for perhaps £25 a head, or heartier, more convivial affair for perhaps twice that – the menu here offers that real brasserie flexibility which is often claimed, but rarely achieved particularly convincingly in practice. It’s supported by a selection of wines that’s similarly appealing and varied, all served by staff who are charming and on-the-ball…

The flavours of each dish were as direct as their menu descriptions – crab served on toast and shredded into a rich bisque; clams with Welsh laver bread diced thinly on toast; and a delicious smoked ham terrine with port jelly…

Downstairs, there’s beer on tap from Crate brewery in Hackney Wick and a raw bar featuring Colchester rock oysters for £1.50 a pop. Upstairs, it’s a good old-fashioned three courses with linen and discreet background music. Most of what we eat is a real treat…

The brill with sea beet and clam cream was as rich as it was delicate, although carnivores can take solace in the superb Galloway beef two ways (roasted and pulled). The dessert menu is simply outstanding: led by a Ayrshire custard tart that frankly knocks the socks off any in memory…

Hot cockles served with fresh laver seaweed on toast were sweet and plump, while the cryptically named ‘Galloway scrumpets’ turned out to be crisp croquettes filled with shredded lamb…
