    The Guardian Says…

    Inside, all is wood panelling and undulating cream-leather banquettes, both around the walls and in the centre so that there are lots of corner tables, where those not eating alone can lock knees. It is the word "convivial" in fine cow-skin upholstery. Sargeant's menu is full of big-fisted ingredients of the sort you might reach via the trains leaving from the big building outside: there are marinated whelks from Folkestone or sturdy salads of beets with Cashel blue and walnuts.

    Time Out Says…

    Directed by Michelin-starred chef Mark Sargeant, the kitchen showcases contemporary and classic British cooking. My dish of orange-poached figs in a salad with beets and English blue cheese was tangy, soft and well matched with crisp, candied walnuts. Mains aren’t cheap, but my companion’s lamb was pink, tender and, I’m assured, well worth the outlay, while my baked marrow melted deliciously on the tongue, and was served with heritage carrots that were earthy and delicately seasoned with coriander.

    The menu, meanwhile, is a please-all selection of modern classics overseen by chef/director Mark Sargent – albeit at whopping prices. To start, the Cornish fish soup has real depth, or you could try smoked haddock under glazed hollandaise concealing a soft-poached egg. Blushing pink lamb chops with crisp sweetbreads and courgette is a sound main course, but skip the namesake dessert for a ruinously rich chocolate mousse with cherries and honeycomb. Service veers from engaged to distant, while keenly chosen wines offer better value than a train buffet car.
