Squaremeal Review of Brinkley's ?

Have you ever wondered what an unscripted episode of Made in Chelsea would look like? We reckon it would be pretty close to the scenes played out at this perennial local hangout on a nightly basis. Brinkley’s offer hasn’t changed in years, but its tried-and-tested formula of matching crowd-pleasing food with cut-price fine wines still attracts the well-groomed Chelsea set, who throw generous helpings of buzz and glamour into the mix. The food isn’t particularly refined, but when the people-watching is as rewarding as it is here, you won’t spend much time looking at your plate anyway. Avocado, mozzarella and tomato salad, chicken satay, merguez sausages with couscous, Brinkley burgers and seared tuna niçoise typify the classic menu, which is handled with due professionalism and skill. On balmy evenings, check out Brinkley’s Garden in what was the Wine Gallery next door.

Excellent wine. Food is consistently good and service is unfailing. Always an inviting, lively atmosphere that is guaranteed to draw you back. Chocolate lover or not, I highly recommend the chocolate mousse. It is irresistible to say the least.

This is drinking/dining for grown-ups with grown-up salaries in Chelsea. The atmosphere is friendly and lively, with a slight end-of-term feeling, a survivors' camaraderie, a kind of if you've made it here then you're “in the club”, you're “one of us” welcome. Sadly, if you sit down to a meal in the back here the food will not match up to the atmosphere or the prices charged. Black linguine was overcooked (albeit with lovely scallops), my chocolate brownie good (but difficult to get wrong), the cheeseplate...
