Glad to have found this thread. After a hectic week at work I took the boyf here last night. I was looking for somewhere nice and cosy that offered good food, and thought we would give it a long overdue visit. The bar was packed (aargh, we wanted quiet), but the upstairs room was perfect - intimate (a bit too dark for some, probably) and quiet and we had a lovely meal: great sweet potato soup and rabbit terrine. Mr R's rib eye was great (better than his chorizo at Constancia, but not as good as my rib eye there - so we are talking good meat). I had a duo of pork (belly and loin, crispy and moist respectively).
Agree staff charming, and chatty (but left you to eat when the food came). Apparently the same food is served downstairs with the addition of 'sharing platters', but can't comment on those.
Will be a nice alternative to the modern bars around here, with its tradional setting (high ceiling, big windows - great view of The Shard
- wooden floors, etc.)
