Square Meal Review of The Guinea Grill ?

Tourists who cast aspersions on traditional British food should try The Guinea Grill, insists a loyal regular. A microcosm of vintage Mayfair ringing with claret-fuelled guffaws, it nestles behind a pub frontage in the clubbiest of rooms, all clustered white-clothed tables in a wood-panelled wrapper. Jacket-&-tie staff, including London’s longest-serving sommelier, play their ever-smiling parts with almost comical gusto, while a lone chef tends the furiously hot grill behind displays of prime, dry-aged fillets, rib-eyes & rumps from the Scotch Beef Club. The kitchen also sends out acclaimed suet-crusted pies by the score, as well as more delicate dishes such as pan-fried trout with olive & capers or Caesar salad flecked with roast salmon. For afters, big helpings of suitably robust sticky toffee pudding or rhubarb crumble may necessitate ‘loose-fitting clothes’.

    The Food Judge :: The Guinea Grill.

    By the end of the year, when I’m work-knackered and even more crabby than usual, I crave the warm fug of a cosy room, lots of dark wood, tartan carpet and old-fashioned waiters in formal suits. I know, shocking. The Guinea Grill ticks all those boxes. It’s a restaurant that screams OLD CHAP. They use silver-plate vegetable dishes, you know the ones, oval and slightly scratched and the vegetables are served by the waiters. So are the younger guests. I think I heard the word “madam”. I noticed two slightly older men sporting fine syrups. Never an improvement, whatever the wigmaker tells you. The Guinea Grill is one in a long line of ale houses situated on this very site since 1423 or thereabouts, when Mayfair was just open fields and farmland...
