I walked into Hush at 12.15 needing a quiet table for 1pm the same day to conduct a lunchtime interview with a talented jazz singer. The staff were incredibly polite, welcoming, and helpful and although the best tables by the windows were already booked I was able to reserve a discreet table for two in a corner. By the time my guest arrived we had been upgraded to the best table in the room and spent the next 3 hours very happily in discussion. The recommended bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc was excellent, the food was wonderful and inventive, and the service was perfect – always there and yet never intrusive. Since neither of us felt able to tackle a main course, we had two starters each – delicious lentil soup with welsh rarebit, a fantastic globe artichoke with a wild salad poking out of the top like a wild hair-do, and carpaccio of beef sliced so thinly it simply melted in the mouth. Nor could we resist the amazing salted caramel ice-cream and the intriguing Mars bar cheesecake which we feel may have had a crushed Snickers hiding in the biscuit base. We left at 4pm, an hour later than we intended, feeling incredibly light-hearted and well-fed but not too full. They even had soft Brazilian jazz playing in the background. Hush Hush – it's how I've always imagined a cocoon might feel like and it was such a shame we had to leave.
