Ealing’s bourgeoisie has long held Charlotte’s to its heart, and fans admire its ‘exacting standards’ and ‘great service’. With a ground floor and patio overlooking the Common, and a larger basement space featuring leather seating and smart, low-key decor, this relaxing venue attracts families, business people and couples. Dapper staff know how to please their flock – offering cocktails from the bar, and a monthly menu of modern European food that caters for both robust and delicate constitutions. Trenchermen might tackle braised pig’s head with sauce gribiche, before embarking on daube of ox cheek, while more modest appetites should be satisfied by a beetroot, walnut and goats’ curd salad, followed by steamed sea bass with scallop mousse and mussels. Set menus help temper the cost, and the well-rounded wine list starts at £18.
The wine list at Charlotte's Place has been thoughtfully put together and is subsequently very easy to follow. It uses dividers to separate red, white, rosé and sparkling, with wines further split up by grape variety within the sections. Good, helpful tasting notes, beautiful typeface and there’s even a Quick List (with the wines simply listed by country) for those who don’t want to engage.
Recently I’ve been trying to make a habit of forcing myself to dine outside of London in the UK. My plans are taking shape, slowly – but I’ll admit I can be a little lazy now and again, so the idea of hopping on a bus for 20 minutes into zone one, does have its attractions. So one Saturday afternoon I plucked up the courage and got the bus (aka taxi) to Charlotte’s Place in Ealing after reading some very positive reviews.

Every now and then you come across a restaurant that just makes you go ‘yeeeees!’ Not in an inappropriate ‘When Harry Met Sally’ way, but just because it ticks all of your boxes and you can’t see how it would be improved. I had that experience at the weekend at Charlotte’s Place in Ealing Common.

There are people in the restaurant game for whom the business element is all important and there are people for whom it is a passion…As a 14 year old Alex Wrethman was a part-time washer-upper at Charlotte’s Place, a neighbourhood restaurant perched on a corner of Ealing Common. He liked the place so much that a few years later, after working his way around the hospitality business, he bought and relaunched the 50 seater site winning 2 AA Rosettes and The Good Food Guide Readers’ London Restaurant of the Year 2013 award in the process.

There’s very few times I find a restaurant with a menu that not only seems to perfectly marry ingredients with oodles of creativity, but also one that surpasses many other dining experiences I’ve had. Charlotte’s Place managed to do exactly that.When an email landed in my inbox inviting me to try the tasting menu in Ealing, out of laziness to travel that far west, I almost rejected the offer. I’m a central London girl and I’ve always been a little spoilt for choice nor would I expect my readers to travel. However, there was something about the menu that intrigued me and a few weeks later I carted a friend...

A restaurant that seats 50 spread across two floors. Charlotte’s place emits an aura of calm, situated in a peaceful and residential part of W5. Curiosity beckons upon approach to the restaurant, seemingly mysterious yet, very welcoming. With Ealing Common serving as its cosy backdrop, al fresco dining can be enjoyed with a good view on a day with good weather.

It’s small and neighbourly in a Chez Bruce kind of way. A ring-the-doorbell, hang-your-coat-up place that’s like dropping into an old friend’s for lunch; that one you don’t see very often who always makes an effort and happens to be a bloody good cook. And, unfortunately for the rest of us, renders it the perfect discovery to show off to your foodie pals.But it’s that good I can live with it. Just. In my case it’s the place to take the family; the banker for birthdays when good, sophisticated food and a warm atmosphere is what you need. And to their credit, each year has been as brilliant as the last...
