SquareMeal Review of Hush Brasserie



Hush Brasserie closed permanently on 4 October 2017

With its smoky glass frontage, creamy leather booths and designer touches, Hush is looking pretty spruce these days – although secluded outside tables are still its biggest lure. Sadly, service can be “slow” and the food doesn’t earn universal approval, but the all-day menu covers a lot of ground – from crispy squid with saffron aïoli or mac ‘n’ cheese gratin to signature burgers, lobster rolls, roasts cod with béarnaise sauce or chimchurri lamb chops with spicy sweet potato. Breakfast and afternoon tea are also good calls, and the first-floor cocktail bar is a cracker, while the private room is a top spot for celebratory bashes. However, the fabulous courtyard terrace and generous availability of wines by the glass inevitably mean that Hush is at its best when the weather is warm and you’re in the mood for 175ml of pleasure.

Visited this restaurant prior to going to the theatre. We had a lovely experience. The food was great, the ambiance was great and the service 1st class. It was my partner's birthday and the waiter asked if we were celebrating anything because he noticed the flowers. He brought out a complimentary birthday surprise which was really special. Cannot fault this place.

My second visit to Hush Brasserie, after an abysmal first visit 2 months ago and this time around was even worse. I ordered a chicken, pepper and avocado salad. What I got were small ‘squares’ of chicken, green peas, tiny squared tomatoes, 2 pieces of avocado, some sweet corn and what looked like half a litre of dressing. I couldn't see any peppers (it DEFINITELY was tomato). Upon mentioning that nowhere on the menu did it say there were peas included (peas are the only thing I can't eat!) and that I had asked for my dressing on the side, I was told (abruptly) that it would be exchanged **Sigh**. 10 minutes later, the exact same looking salad, minus peas and dressing was slammed on the table in front of me. Still full of tomato. No avocado to be seen. The service was slow (2 waiting staff and 1 barman were all I saw) and it took a long time to get the bill once we had managed to get someone's attention. The restaurant was almost empty, so it's not as if they were very busy. I won't be returning. Total waste of money.

Unfortunately my experience wasn't very good. After waiting 1 hour for our starters to arrive and serving us the wrong bottle of wine the manager had to offer the meal to us for free apart from the drinks. They had clearly crammed too many bookings in and not enough staff. However, on this occasion they hadn't actually put our order through the system. The client lunch ended up with all of us talking about the bad service rather than properly enjoying ourselves. Don't go in December!
