The Gay Hussar is so much more than just a Hungarian restaurant in Soho. It was the first of its kind in the country, and 60 years later has become an institution, playing a crucial, sometimes controversial role in British politics.

Behind the corridors of power lie the secret rooms where deals are made and fates sealed, and no more so than at the Gay Hussar over Bull's Blood and Goulash.

The place is steeped in history, the narrow walls festooned with caricatures of the myriad famous faces who have dined within.

Once obliterated, history cannot be reclaimed. So, as a humble food and drink writer, I urge any prospective buyers to keep the Gay Hussar alive.

(I first visited the Gay Hussar late last year and have been back several times since. My review can be found here: http://benviveur.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/huzzah-for-hussar.html

      Being Hungarian myself, I think it's great that such an old restaurant preserves itself among the attractions of London.

      In an increasingly homogenous world of chains the Gay Hussar is unique with a very special atmosphere that, if lost, could not be regained. I found it to be a very memorably enjoyable experience which has always stayed with me and I do love this restaurant.
