Special/unusual, but not loud or too creative (!) for Sunday lunch anniversary celebration

Hi

We've booked Gilbert Scott for this Sunday lunch as anniversary treat for my in-laws. But I'm having doubts. Reports seem mixed - one friend said the room didn't feel very special, though the photos look fairly grand. I've been in the cocktail bar, which I love.

Can anyone share their experiences of the Gilbert Scott, particularly for Sunday lunch?

Can anyone suggest an alternative:

Criteria:
Not too noisy a room
Preferably a good view or grand-feeling dining room
Good but more importantly, friendly, service
Reliable and consistently good cooking more important than flash and surprising.
Prefer traditional-ish British or French cuisine
Open for Sun Lunch!
Likely to have a table for this Sun!
Something that feels a bit special but prob not trendy!
Price less important than value

Otherwise, I'm open to suggestions of wild cards - somewhere they would never go themselves in a million years and may be completely non-fancy but would be a real experience - a rooftop popup, say or something like Ben Spalding's Stripped Back.

Thank you all!
