A significant departure for Marcus Wareing Restaurants, Tredwell’s is a casual, mid-price, three-floor eatery in the Seven Dials development, aptly named after the butler in Agatha Christie’s novel The Seven Dials Mystery. Smart interiors of racing-green banquettes, wooden booths, vintage tiling and mirrors look the part, whether you perch in the inviting ground-floor bar, soak up the buzz from the airy mezzanine or descend to the intimate basement. The menu has a proudly British flavour, with simple grills and favourites such as burgers, alongside more cheffy dishes, such as richly seasoned heritage tomatoes and goats cheese on crispy music bread or tender slow-cooked beef short rib, paired with a side of indulgent blue cheese croquettes. Flavours don’t always work – harissa-glazed aubergine needed more smoky spice – but ingredients are well sourced, service is friendly and the weekend brunch menu is a bonus. To drink, try cocktails such as the Tredwell’s Collins (gin, smoked lemon and soda); alternatively, the short wine list has decent choice available by the glass.

It's in the Seven Dials part of Covent Garden which I discovered was one of Charles Dicken's favourites. He wrote nearly two hundred years ago: "The stranger who finds himself in the Dials for the first time…at the entrance of Seven obscure passages, uncertain which to take, will see enough around him to keep his curiosity awake for no inconsiderable time…"Well, I don't know what it was like then but it's certainly got a...

Tredwell’s is an informal British restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden. Created by well-known chef, Marcus Wareing, it serves up Modern London cooking in relaxed surroundings. Located in the Seven Dials area, it takes its name from Tredwell, a butler in the Agatha Christie novel, The Seven Dials Mystery.We started off with a couple of customized cocktails, rustled up by the cheerful bar staff. Just tell them your tastes and they’ll do the same for you. Mine was a wonderful concoction with Moet champagne, gin, aperol, rhubarb syrup, Grenache white wine, peach bitters and maraschino liqueur – very refreshing...
