There’s a touch of classical elegance about Gordon Ramsay’s latest venture: shiny copper, art-clad walls and bow-tied staff bring to mind grand French brasseries, while a maze of small dining areas provides homely intimacy as well as a sociable hum. Well-travelled Irish chef Anna Haugh-Kelly is in charge of the kitchen, and international influences abound: gremolata-crusted yellowfin tuna is sushi-like in presentation and taste, the delicate flesh offset by pickled golden beetroot arranged into a flower shape; crab tortellini is served with a tableside dousing of shellfish broth, while richly flavoured Cumbrian beef fillet appears alongside bulging gnocchi stuffed with shredded beef cheek. To finish, a scoop of Jerusalem artichoke ice cream with dark chocolate tart is about as ‘out there’ as London House gets – although it’s not a high point. All in all, there is clever cooking on show here, but without the pomp of fine dining. Great bar, too.
