I've been coming to Trompette for years and considered it to be the height of haute-cuisine in Chiswick, but on eating there last night, although I can still say the food is excellent, since the refurbishment and change of Chef earlier this year, everything else has slipped.
Service is very slow (our neighbour had to wait 30 mins for a starter!); fewer waiting staff; no longer a dedicated Maître’D, nor sommelier; new decor lacks the old intimacy, and overall ambience is simply lacking; the bill was simply dumped on the table without our requesting it, straight after they left the coffees! What's worse is that formerly 3 courses for two people, with a modest bottle of wine and coffee used to be around £60-65 per head, now its £90-95.
In short, it's lost its crown and probably soon its Michelin Star as well I would have though, which really belongs to the previous chef. Such primacy I think has now been passed on to Michael Nadra or Quantus – both of which are a stone's throw away from Trompette, have fine menus, lovely service and don’t break the bank – this last point being so important during recession, Trompette had better re-think things or I fear for its longevity.
