Squaremeal Review of Bellamy's ?

Regarded by some regulars as a club without a sub, Gavin Rankin’s hospitable restaurant and bar comes at the brasserie tradition by way of Bruton Place. An instinctive understanding of the pleasures of the table marks it out, even among showier offerings; an oyster bar, operational during the day, dispenses rarebits and toasted sandwiches alongside the rocks and natives, while the bar makes cocktail-drinking easy at a flat £10 a pop. Alongside the daily table d’hôte, Bellamy’s carte is the essence of elegant comfort: try iced lobster soufflé, goose rillettes or risotto milanese to start, followed by quenelles of pike with sauce Nantua or roast grouse with figs. To finish, it’s got to be îles flottantes. Such dishes are not light on labour, but there’s a sense that the kitchen abhors shortcuts. The wine list is French, but not eye-wateringly priced.

Bellamy's Bruton Place London

by   bronze reviewer (9)

Nov 2014

The menu is good and more varied than some i.e. smoked eel mousse, jugged hare, rabbit, grouse, pike soufflé as well as more common dishes. The service was courteous and efficient, the cooking good and the room has a nice warm feeling to it although it can be a bit noisy. It is just off Berkeley Square in Bruton Place behind Bruton Street so well place for Mayfair and Bond Street visits.

Editor's pick It's like the recession never happened here. But it's also like the boom never happened either because Bellamy's is still sitting snugly in the early 80s and yet to suffer the highs and lows of the Nineties and Naughties. If you are a hedgie of a certain age who hasn't lost it all yet in European bonds (or perhaps are just about to and fancy one last taste of the old life) then this is the place for you. The welcome here is warm and genteel, “Ah, Mr X, lovely to see you again. Your usual table? Your...

I work nearby so visit Bellamys fairly regularly. The maitre d and all the staff are so professional and welcoming that my spirits are raised before I even sit down. The smallish menu of French staples is of the very highest order, superb cooking of grown up comfort food served in a lovely room, with a bustly yet not too crowded atmosphere. I have rather particular dietary requirements and they are happy to accommodate my annoying changes without any fuss. It is not cheap but very good value and...

We visited Bellamy's for the first time last weekend. For us it was a real find, tucked away, yet close to all the action. The food was excellent throughout, nicely prepared but not over fussy. Between us we had fish, shellfish and venison, all equally good and accompanied by wines well selected by the waiter. Bellamy's has an adjoining shop and you enter through here in the evening. It sounds a bit off-putting, but in practice it actually added to the deal as the displays and aromas enhance the...
