Living Room
is located down a hidden passage way just off Regent Street. The bar/restaurant is open plan with slick, modern interiors and a bar running the length of one side, separating diners from drinkers. Even on a Monday night the bar had an upbeat atmosphere, every table was taken and the staff were pretty cheery too.

The menu is easy to follow and features plenty of ‘home comforts’ – Humble, hearty, dishes like your nan used to make. We opted for the Battered Tiger Prawns and Thai Fish Cakes to start followed by Steak and Ale pie with chips and the 21-day aged Fillet Steak served with flat mushroom, tomato and chips. The bar offers the usual selection of wines, spirits and cocktails but we opted on the advice of our waiter and chose a bottle of Rioja, a good choice too.

The Battered Tiger Prawns where light, crispy and non greasy – all good. The Thai Fish Cakes had a slight kick to them which we liked, nothing worse than tasteless fish cakes. When the mains arrived we let out a ‘bloody hell’ at the size of the Steak and Ale pie. It looked like a Rugby ball! The steak looked slightly deflated and was a little over cooked – clearly over shadowed by the pie.

Only one of us managed a desert of Sticky toffee pudding which was demolished in under 30 seconds giving it the respected top marks.

With the prawn starter at just under £7 and fish cakes at a reasonable £5.45, the pie £9.45 and steak at £19.95 its not bad going, although we’d suggest you leave the steaks to the pro’s. A good choice for a quick business lunch.
