49 Lincoln's Inn Fields , London, WC2A 3PF

SquareMeal Review of Coopers

This corner restaurant situated opposite Lincoln’s Inn Fields has been dubbed a ‘hidden gem’ by readers, & retains a loyal following among local legal eagles & staff from the nearby Royal College of Surgeons, who swap scalpels for steak knives as they slice into slabs of aged Aberdeen Angus rib-eye, say, or braised brisket with horseradish mash. The distinctive terracotta interior doesn’t suit all tastes & evenings can be deadly quiet, but the kitchen knocks out some confident, creative modern dishes along the lines of spicy chorizo & chickpea salad, Barbary duck breast with wilted spinach & parsnip purée or scallops & tiger prawns on hot chilli & ginger tagliatelle. An interesting wine list includes bottles sourced direct by the owners, while the basement brasserie is a safe bet for those after something more affordable.

Coopers is great. I have been going there since the late 90s and have never been disappointed. The menu shows imagination without being outlandish, and the cooking is superb. The prices are a little on the high side, but not outrageous. The service is friendly and efficient, and Denise's advice is always to be trusted. It is quite a lively place at lunchtimes, without being noisy. The atmosphere in the evenings is very varied; it is often used for medium-sized parties, which create a buzz, but on other nights it can be a little too quiet. Always best to book.
