In their own words, “the menu is best described as British contemporary”, serving a wide selection of produce from the sea whilst complementing it with some pretty impressive meat dishes.
Dining with a stunning view of London in the background, the meal started with roast wood pigeon breast which was great. The pigeon was cooked spot on and served along with a cream purée, pickled swede, berries and beetroot made for an interesting flavour combination which was rather enjoyable.
Moving onto mains, the Dover sole, served with scallop and shrimp mousse, ravioli, capers, samphire and mussel cream, was really something. The sole had a taste that resonated fresh with a firm texture that only reinforced this. Drizzled with that rich mussel cream, it made for a really fantastic dish all round.
The food here is beautiful and the quality is as high as the location where the restaurant is based. However, be warned that you pay for the privilege with a premium being charged for both the quality of the view and the produce. How much of a premium? These two dishes set me back roughly £70 and that’s just from the menu price (i.e. without service). However, was it worth it? Yes…for a very special occasion as in today’s London dining scene, that money could go a lot further elsewhere.
