Looking at earlier reviews I was a little unsure as to what to expect on my recent trip to 1901. I'd been to it's earlier incarnation a few years ago so had a rough idea of what to expect. I did however find it a big improvement and certainly a lot better than reviews earlier in the year indicated. Granted it is a very large room and I can understand atmosphere may be affected but for a relaxing but formal lunch it suited me perfectly. I loved the British menu and was great to see so much regional produce in use. I'd opted for a starter of Home cured breast, pickled Scottish girolles, roasted plum and bittercress – The Duck was some of the most delicious I've ever had and mixed very well with the taste of the plum. My main came courtesy of the special of the day which happened to be one of my favourites – Leg of Lamb – wonderfully succulent. Dessert was Baked Apple sponge, lemon-caramel sauce and custard – so delicious and finished the meal off perfectly.
Wines were suggested by the glass from the sommelier who did an excellent job and impressed me by genuinely choosing what he thought would suit rather than what would suit his sales – Something you don't always seem to be able to count on. I'd definitely go back probably for a dinner as I'm curious as to how the atmosphere changes for the evening but in the meantime there is so many other choices in the Hotel I better make plenty of excuses to head to Liverpool Street.
