"Let me show you straight to Siberia,” says our host. Of course, that’s not what she actually said, but that is how it felt. Open less than a wet week and Chequer Lane by Jamie Oliver is as busy and noisy as you’d expect at half eight on a Friday night.

Anyway, the host attempts to seat us at a single table on its own by the bar, away from the action, set for four. We tell her we’d prefer to be in the main dining room and miraculously she finds us the table for three we have booked, which is more to our liking.
