Square Meal Review of The Strand Dining Rooms ?

Providing a welcome alternative to the touristy chains around Trafalgar Square, this on-trend British brasserie makes a good impression with its notable use of native ingredients and assured cooking of classic daily specials. Our heritage beetroot salad with Berkswell cheese and a punchy mustard dressing made a pretty plate to start, ahead of tender Dedham Vale sirloin steak with béarnaise sauce and perfectly crisp triple-cooked chips. The all-day menu also gives traditional staples a successful twist – witness a seafood Scotch egg oozing its soft centre into a pool of dark crab sauce. A well-sourced Eurocentric wine list, Sunday roasts, morning coffee with crumpets and afternoon tea are further draws. The restaurant’s roomy interior has been styled on the polished wood finishes of a traditional Pullman railway carriage, while friendly staff are smartly kitted out in jeans and waistcoats.

  1. Every weekend i have this grand plan for all these things I'm going to do. The restaurants i want to pre-book and if it's sunny, the roof terraces i must take my friends too. None of this really actually happens. Instead i end up changing my restaurant booking because I'm not quite happy with the choice i made and decide that the roof terrace cocktails are far too expensive. The other weekend i got on Twitter, desperate for a recommendation and by just a stroke of luck, The Strand Dining Rooms replied to say they'd just opened that day into soft launch. I couldn't resist heading down.

    After a visit to the opera at the ENO to see a version of Bizet's, The Pearl Fishers (which i wasn't blown away with) we made that short stroll down to The Strand Dining Rooms, which literally sits just off Trafalgar Square and next to Charing Cross Station. It's been revamped immaculately. The room was been designed by none other than, Russell Sage. If you've got the cash to splash, Russell is the go-to designer for new restaurants opening in grand spaces. Polished dark wood, huge grand chandeliers - it's gorgeous. Cocktails were suitably glamorous and just as gorgeous...
