The space is a saga in itself – with a feeling of being at home, sitting on comfy flower-patterned chairs and birds serenading you through a rainy serene afternoon.

It’s different from how the then-burgeoning John Griffith Chaney would have envisioned the city on Thames but, to my surprise, they’ve managed to pull in the vibe, fairly well. Luxuriating in a gastro-pub that has lip smacking food, a few British classics to boast of as well, and delectable cocktails to offer, you’d actually feel like dining in classy London café. With vintage cars, double deckers, red phone booths, tufted couches and huge clocks adorning the walls, this place passes off as a perfect one to lounge-in with friends on a drizzling evening over Chef’s special entrees and a classic Martini.
