  • "We went fairly late on a Wednesday after a concert at the Barbican, 2 minutes away, and it was pleasantly quiet at that time. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu, despite being fairly new. The food was superb- my monkfish, my wife's hake, and one of the best sticky toffee puddings I've had anywhere."
