More than two years after opening, this super-smart spot overseen by Brit chef Gary Rhodes finally seems to have got into the swing of things. Gone are the empty tables; even on weeknights this place now attracts a gaggle of diners. The menu still features plenty of Brit-influenced touches: pork belly, oxtail cottage pie and Welsh rarebit were just a few of the choice picks during our last visit, with everything beautifully cooked and presented. The beef on offer is USDA Prime or wagyu – unsurprisingly the latter commanding premium prices – while the sizeable list of sauces and sides offers some inventive options (give the curry sauce a try). If we have to niggle, we’d say the staff almost try too hard: they seem over-anxious to please, hovering around tables and engaging in chit-chat with even the most unwilling guests. If they eased off a touch, it would give diners a chance to savour this carnivorous experience – at these prices, we don’t want anything to distract us from the meat.
