Square Meal Review of The Strand Dining Rooms ?

The West End has a new all-day dining option in the shape of The Strand Dining Rooms near Trafalgar Square. With 180 covers, this is the first solo project from Mark Harris, who was previously general manager of Searcy’s at the Gherkin and brand director at Green’s. Harris claims that the overall experience will focus on ‘all-day eating with real food, exceptional service and value for money’. Wines come from big-name merchants including Bibendum and Corney & Barrow as well as Burgundy specialists Flint Wines and smaller suppliers such as Decorum Vintners. The restaurant’s interior, meanwhile, is styled on the polished wood finishes of a traditional Pullman railway carriage, designed by Russell Sage Studios, who also worked on Grain Store, Pétrus and Social Eating House.

  1. Every weekend i have this grand plan for all these things I'm going to do. The restaurants i want to pre-book and if it's sunny, the roof terraces i must take my friends too. None of this really actually happens. Instead i end up changing my restaurant booking because I'm not quite happy with the choice i made and decide that the roof terrace cocktails are far too expensive. The other weekend i got on Twitter, desperate for a recommendation and by just a stroke of luck, The Strand Dining Rooms replied to say they'd just opened that day into soft launch. I couldn't resist heading down. After a visit to the opera at the ENO to see a version of Bizet's, The Pearl Fishers (which i wasn't blown away with) we made that short stroll down to The Strand Dining Rooms, which literally sits just off Trafalgar Square and next to Charing Cross Station. It's been revamped immaculately. The room was been designed by none other than, Russell Sage. If you've got the cash to splash, Russell is the go-to designer for new restaurants opening in grand spaces. Polished dark wood, huge grand chandeliers - it's gorgeous. Cocktails were suitably glamorous and just as gorgeous...
