We chose Great Queen Street to celebrate our anniversary as my husband had eaten good food here before. We liked the menu and had really tasty cocktails, wine and food. We originally wanted to have a pre-dinner drink in the bar downstairs but it was empty so felt uninviting. The only criticism I have with the food was the temperature of my main dish, described as “roast duck with green beans and a walnut sauce”. The duck was warm but the beans were cold. I was told it was a “bean salad” but that’s not the way it was described, so hopefully they’ll re-word it on the menu. Other than the chilly beans though the dish was delicious. I’m looking forward to coming back to try more dishes.

Amazing restaurant with amazing staff and ENGLISH food (and adequate prices - very rare at that touristy location).
Too bad it's closing soon. Thankfully, I was able to introduce it to my family and friends beforehand. I hope the owner decides to reopen it somewhere close to the original, with same overall quality.

Excellent British food. Can thoroughly recommend any of the pies, the Wellington and the lamb shoulder. Varied wine list. Buzzy atmosphere on a Thursday evening. Just as good as it’s sister-restaurant south of the river (the Canton Arms)!

We had a pre-theatre booking and were made welcome even though we arrived early. We chose the chicken pie for two with one portion of buttered greens. Everything was very good and arrived piping hot and was plenty for the two of us. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We would certainly go again if in the area.

We were on our way to the theatre and wanted something good but quick. The food was very good. The service was as good as any service in London. You have to get their attention sometimes. Overall a good choice.

Food here great as always and changing regularly. Staff really laid back and friendly with as much or as little attention as required. Seasonal ingredients brought together in a traditional style with often a modern twist. Family sharing plates here brilliant if you get 2 or 3 people to agree, which will be a challenge from such an eclectic and appealing menu with something for everyone.

The food was fantastic and the waiting staff was friendly and attentive. The only snug is the noise level - we were sat by the window in a sort of alcove but it became increasingly difficult to continue conversation as the night went on.

Food was excellent. The place is nice, and doesn't feel to dressed up or stiff for a great meal. A bit noisy, and the prices are not the cheapest but great for a special occasion.

Promised so much, but disappointed. The menu is interesting, the wine list is varied and reasonably priced, the staff are friendly and we know their sister restaurant, the Anchor and the vegetables with my wife's meal were cold. We are a bit torn as to whether or not to give the restaurant a second chance or not. It's a great location on the edge of Covent Garden and we suspect they can be really good, but it didn't quite click for us on this particular day.

The interior is fairly low-key, but all the full tables provided a lively atmosphere. The food was very good (having had a steak and chips main meal), and for that I would likely return. The service, however, was fairly disinterested. My table got just enough attention to allow the basics to be addressed, but nothing beyond that. Wait staff seemed a bit bored or distracted. Even with the venue being crowded, my meal took longer than I would have expected (35-40 minutes after ordering). Once the food arrived it was hot and tasty. That makes the lackadaisical service even more disappointing. If they got that right it would have been a 4+ rated meal.
