Square Meal Review of Wild Honey ?

Younger than Arbutus and older than Les Deux Salons – and arguably more consistent than both – this branch of Anthony Demetre and Will Smith’s mini-empire is a good fit for Mayfair with its clubby panelled interiors, manageable prices and worldly but casual mood. The kitchen knows its seasons and happily mixes up humble and luxury ingredients, delivering plates of Lincolnshire smoked eel with kohlrabi and pickled shiitake mushrooms, slow-cooked leg and breast of Welsh lamb with Middle Eastern-style aubergine and spinach, or wild sea bass with citrus-braised endive and carrot purée – big-hearted, confident food for our times. At night it can feel ‘romantic, rustic and cosy’, but Wild Honey is also business-focused – especially when local suits gather to partake of the excellent-value ‘working lunch’ (£29 for three courses). Tuned-up, engaging staff have ‘absolutely the right attitude’, and the prospect of admirable wines for quaffing by the glass or carafe is a pleasurable bonus.

  1. On a fairly nondescript part of St. George Street, in Mayfair, C tells me that this used to be a barber’s shop. It’s a long, fairly narrow room, with wooden panelling, good, austere lighting and interesting modern art on the walls. Comfortable without being fussy, it’s an elegant and stylish restaurant. I felt at home as soon as I walked through the door. A very decent Kir kicked off the proceedings...

    samphire and salsify :: Wild Honey

    This Michelin starred restaurant based in Mayfair comes from the team behind Les Deux Salons and Arbutus. The restaurant itself is reminiscent of a hunters log cabin with its wood panelled walls – if I’d turned up wearing a dearstalker with a shotgun draped over my shoulder I wouldn’t have looked out of place. It was an attractive looking dining room...

Anthony Demetre

When Anthony Demetre & business partner Will Smith launched Arbutus in 2006, they were aiming for an informal, value-for-money & technically assured restaurant focusing on inexpensive, seasonal ingredients. Their panache & skilful execution saw the plaudits flood in for their Soho restaurant, including a BMW Square Meal Award for Best New Restaurant & a Michelin star in January 2007. The pair followed this up with the equally successful Wild Honey in Mayfair, which garnered similar accolades the following year. To cap it all, Arbutus was recently named BMW Square Meal Restaurant of the Year 2010 in recognition of the owners' matchless approach to affordable fine dining.
