Squaremeal Review of Burdock at Montcalm Royal London House ?

Located on the ground floor of Montcalm Royal London House, this sleek and modern restaurant comes from the ETM group (who run The Botanist and The Jugged Hare among others). Amid soft lighting, comfy sky-blue chairs and granite tables, a rather unexpected, Spanish-style menu boasts a selection of tapas-style portions and sharing dishes, using British ingredients. For the most part it works: venison meatballs are meltingly good, while an octopus, paprika and potato salad makes for an excellent blending of spice and flavours. Not every dish delivered on our visit though, with a helping of lobster tacos being a bit too tough, while a cheeseburger was fine, if not as impressive as the ETM standard. Cocktails are fun and there’s a rotating list of craft ales at Burdock's bar, while sundaes and freak shakes for dessert range from rich and gooey sticky toffee to a light, fruity blend of frozen yogurt, berries and chia seeds. Chatty staff and wallet-friendly prices make this a decent (if unambitious) dining spot.

They don't take reservations for smaller groups so Friday night last week I skipped out of work and made my way down to Burdock. First impressions - WOW! The restaurant is split across both sides of The Montcalm with dining tables on one side and a stunning bar on the other. It wouldn't be fair to write a review without the whole...
