Find this impressive restaurant in what was a splendid Edwardian banking hall. It's under the same ownership as Nutbourne Vineyard in West Sussex, and some of their wines are listed.
Although they offer 'serious breakfasts' and Afternoon Tea, lunch & dinner are the main events, and we will stick to them here.
While co-proprietor Peter Gladwin is Executive Chef, Damien Pondevie is in charge of the stoves, and between them they source top-quality British produce for their seasonal menus.
A summer snapshot brought 'Potted Cornish Crab with Toasted Brioche & Rocket'; 'Roasted Pigeon Breast, Greengage Compote, Herb Salad & Potato Wafers'; 'Pressed Gloucester Ham Hock & Baby Leeks with Horseradish Cream' and 'Dorset Rock Oysters with Shallot Vinegar & Lemon' among the starters.
'Fillet of Sea Bream with Braised Baby Artichokes and Saffron & Chive Broth'; 'Borough Market Wild Mushroom Tart with Baby Leaf Salad & Sour Cream'; 'Free-Range Chicken Breast with Seared Foie Gras, Fondant Potato & Thyme Sauce'; 'Fillet of English Rose Veal with Wild Mushrooms, Braised Baby Gem & Armagnac Sauce' - plus top-quality items from the Grill - listed among the mains.
If you still have room, you might be tempted by the likes of 'Dark Chocolate Fondant with Pistachio Ice Cream'; 'Layered Raspberry & Citrus Parfait' and 'Espresso Crème Brulée'.
A separate dining room 'Just Oriental' offers a Pan-Asian menu ranging from light snacks to more substantial meals.
