Square Meal Review of Chiswell Street Dining Rooms ?

Along with the neighbouring Jugged Hare, this handsome proposition is owned by the City-based ETM group, so expect polished, understated quality. It’s a serene space of white and muted lime – formerly Whitbread brewery’s 18th-century home – with latticed windows and a profusion of spotlights. The bar possesses a substantial cocktail list and a globetrotting all-day menu (from serrano ham with Manchego cheese to lime and chilli tiger prawns). At night, the dining room sticks steadfastly to Britain: “stunning” Brixham crab soup deserves special attention, as do “imaginative” salads such as spring pea and black radish. Otherwise, opt for a turf feast of Herdwick mutton rump (served with a hearty hotpot of braised shoulder, root vegetable purée, black cabbage and rosemary jus), or Gressingham duck sweetly matched with mulled pear purée. Service is occasionally patchy, but overall this assured operation (afternoon tea and theatre deals included) leaves readers planning their next visit.

    SamTheFoodFan :: Chiswell Street Dining Rooms

    Chiswell Street Dining Rooms is located near the Barbican, an area that is not renowned for being a culinary hotspot. It backs out onto the Mont Calm hotel and if you were ordering room service, this is one of the restaurants where your food would come from. Just to clarify though, there are no links with the hotel other than its proximity. It is owned by Tom and Ed Martin who also own the runaway successes that are The Gun in Canary Wharf and The Botanist in Sloane Square. These guys know how to do gastro pubs!

    We chose this restaurant for a girlfriend’s birthday as it’s near’ish to where we all work, one...
