Square Meal Review of Inn the Park ?

It’s all about the setting at this outpost of the Peyton & Byrne group – beguiling vistas of St James’s Park, trickling fountains, pretty flowerbeds and all. The Swiss chalet exterior doesn’t scream refinement, but the kitchen puts its faith in carefully sourced British produce for a stoutly reliable menu of wholesome dishes. Ignore the pre-packed sarnies and takeaway snacks in the touristy cafeteria, and home in on a salad of black pudding, ham hock, dandelions and a Scotch quail’s egg (London’s answer to lyonnaise) or whole mackerel perched on fennel salad and samphire. To finish, knickerbocker glory gets an afternoon-tea makeover with clotted cream and strawberry sorbet. There’s also a new outdoor bar (open until 11pm), where you can sip this season’s signature mixes such as crabapple sour or nettle gimlet, along with craft beers, artisan ciders and vino.

    ytTastes :: Inn the Park – Peyton & Bryne

    We gave up our intention of a calm stroll in the end, and settled down on the covered terrace at Inn the Park to start our lunch early. A lovely and very polite waiter was at our attendance – perhaps almost too polite… you will read about this later! The menu for Sunday looked interesting. As per usual my friend and I decided to choose separate dishes that we both wanted to try and agreed to swap half way through. So for the starters it we ended up choosing their: English asparagus, toasted hazelnuts and soft garlic; and Devon crab and avocado with crisp ginger bread. The mains, well, we couldn’t quite swap on that one, my friend being a pescatarian, so she decided on the Salt baked root vegetables, caramelized fennel, radish and St. Tola (as we were curious what St Tola was), and I chose the typical Traditional Sunday roast beef. The Skinny fries with caramalised chilli was also spotted and ordered by my friend, but I refrained from anything else as at the back of my mind I reminded myself that there was dessert to come!...
