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.
