Warm and homely neighbourhood restaurant in the equally charming area of Primrose Hill - private and separate dining available in the downstairs section
This is a lovely place to have chanced on and one I’ve coincidentally been meaning to try for a long time. Having never been, my first reaction was that it was placed in a lovely urban village setting and inside it was certainly cosy in the narrow main dining room. Downstairs there was more room and a very relaxed feel to the place in general without losing any charm. The food itself was perfectly fine – well done, but not fussy at the same time and there were no major flavour disagreements. I enjoyed all the courses with the best parts probably being the lobster bisque and the signature giant jaffa cake.
My only negative is that after 3 courses of the a la carte I was still a little hungry later, so nibbles above olives or a slightly more imaginative amuse bouche greeting wouldn’t go amiss, or simply slightly more on the portion sizes. However, the overall food feeling was pleasant and the Morgon Marcel Lapier red Burgundy went extremely well with the meal as one of the options recommended by the sommelier. We were certainly given attention throughout the meal by the floor staff and all in all, this is a very comfortable neighbourhood restaurant to dine in which was enjoyed very much and is no doubt a very safe bet for the locals as well.
