Square Meal Review of The Lady Ottoline ?

Lady Ottoline Violet Anne Morrell was the uncrowned society queen of Bloomsbury back in Edwardian times, and she is fondly remembered in this aristocratically titled gastropub from the guys behind the highly successful Princess of Shoreditch. Originally a ‘darts and pool table' boozer, the Lady now struts her stuff in confident mood – so take pot luck in the buzzy bar or book a table in the more intimate upstairs dining room. Either way, the menu promises big helpings and lots of invigorated British ingredients: wild-rabbit rillettes with ‘drunken' prunes and well-reported ‘partridge parcels' set the tone, ahead of a daily pie, pulled pork belly or Peterhead hake with ceps. Drinks include a fine contingent of cask ales (‘some we haven't seen before', notes a fan) and plenty of carefully chosen wines.

    vialaporte :: The Lady Ottoline // Bloomsbury // London

    In central London, it’s never difficult to find either a good pub or a nice restaurant. However, it’s not always so easy to find a great gastro pub, which performs both functions at once. Normally, they are tucked away in London’s more leafy postcodes. Still, there are some that exist, and without a doubt, Bloomsbury’s The Lady Ottoline is a prime example. Just off Gray’s Inn Road, The Lady Ottoline serves refined yet traditional British cuisine.

Dining with colleagues, means a lot of ‘umming and ahhing’ at others dishes. It’s one of the many things I love about eating with a large group; you get to see a bigger picture of the menu. The sole came beautifully presented and looked delicious...
