Michelin-starred restaurant in the Gordon Ramsay stable, in Mayfair. The head chef, Jason Atherton, has won a Chef of the Year award.

her welshness and two others visited this place in September 2008. We opted for the four-course menu (priced at a reasonable £28) - although there is an a la carte menu with an obviously greater selection.

To start with, we had swede honey soup with cep and braised rabbit. This came with a hot little brioche-type roll which had a root vegetable accompaniment. Very good.

Second course was marinated foie gras with rhubarb and ginger accompanied by toasted brioche. The foie gras was good but the toasted brioche was too thick and stuck in the throat.

Third course was a side of Casterbridge beef with beetroot and pureed vegetables. The beef was heavenly. The pureed veg was OK, although I thought it had the texture of that well-known powder-potato product.

Fourth course was the dessert: thin strips of eggy meringue with strawberry ice cream and thinly-sliced strawberries.

Verdict: Overall her welshness considered the food to be very good. The service was military and precise. I would recommend that you go for the a la carte menu as opposed to the set courses - although it was very good to experience all those different flavours, it felt like it was all over in an instant and I did not exactly feel satisfied at the end.
