The Only Running Footman, Mayfair
The girl serving us was so friendly and attentive and did really well to deal with a big bunch of blokes like us and she kept the red wine flowing all night long!
Overall great night
We waited an hour and a half, from 7.30pm until 9pm for a seafood pasta dish and a roast pork dish. The food was good, but we were starving by the time it turned up. Taking 2 drinks of the bill did not compensate for the unexcusable wait, we should of left after 30 minutes, but we won't be returning. The drinkers outside on the pavement and road meant that when we left we had to walk out on the road. A rare night out spoilt by the wait. I'd recommend Fino's in Mount Street instead.

Come out of tube station onto Piccadilly. Head east in direction of Piccadilly Circus, turn first left up Berkeley Street and walk up to Berkeley Square. Turn left and walk along the south side of the square. Charles St. is the road leading off the Square straight ahead of you.
This much-loved pub, restaurant and private event space houses elegant, yet unpretentious surroundings, complete with a truly British menu featuring home-grown produce direct from the farmers. Guests can slide up to the long mahogany bar or comfy booth seating and enjoy traditional Blighty breakfasts or old-style pub menu favourites later on. The restaurant is a bit more luxurious, serving stylish items like Rillette of Rabbit & Duck, Spiced Pear Chutney & Toasted Granary Bread against a backdrop of velvet chairs and plush carpeting. For those who feel that the wine bar set have lost sight of what made Britain great, The Only Running Footman is definitely for you.
