Squaremeal Review of Bolton's ?

Loveably old-school, Bolton’s entices customers with a below-stairs dining room that laughs in the face of fashionable restaurant tropes. The rich red carpeting, stained glass detailing and heavily dressed tables speak of a different era, while the menu talks the language of home tables in the old country. Starters of wild boar bresaola or lobster soup spiked with brandy might precede mains featuring variations on escalope of veal and fillet of beef (al pepe, alla Stilton) – the kind of dishes that have been raising smiles for generations. Pasta is trattoria-style stuff (think farfalle with salmon, vodka and cream or pappardelle Alfie with meatballs and ceps), while desserts from the restaurant’s Soho patisserie are served with an element of Anglo-Italian showmanship via a trolley. In a rushed and breathless world, Bolton’s is also the place for a little contemplation over a glass of something Tuscan.

Fantastic venue for lunch with colleagues / clients - charming hosts, pleasant service and great food - don't be put off by the renovation work to the nearby buildings / exterior on Cullum Street, descend the steps to the restaurant and you are transported back in time

We booked this restaurant for a Christmas team celebration. We were confined in a ‘next room area’ which was cold and detached from the main restaurant. Food was presented badly and rather average. Wine more or less the same a mediocre prosecco followed up by an anonimous red. The team left the room quite deflated. I believe the location makes the name of this restaurant because the quality that delivers, including the service is quite below par.
