- What is it good for?
Newly transformed in a fresh, contemporary style with great river views, Leftbank is close to Heathrow and is an ideal place to meet clients and journos on the move, whether travelling in the UK or flying in from overseas.
- Signature dishes?
The buffet-style restaurant offers an extensive array of changing dishes with a mix of meats, fish, vegetarian options and amazing desserts. Main course specials include Thai-marinated roast salmon, slow braised neck of Cotswold lamb and sauteed guinea fowl.
- Who's the boss?
Head chef David Coutts is the man at the helm, having previously been at sister property The Grove and Conran's Bluebird restaurant.
- Tips please?
Book a window table for fantastic river views or on the terrace, weather permitting, but you can see the river wherever you sit thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows.
- What's the damage?
Great value since you can enjoy as many dishes and courses as you like from the buffet from just £20 each.
