SquareMeal Review of Langan's Brasserie

1

"GOOD"

Everyone needs “a restaurant for all occasions” and Langan’s has come up trumps for generations of Londoners (famous or otherwise). Fluorescent signage and a deco entrance are a siren call to this “very iconic British institution” – a nostalgic room with framed posters, prints and a menu that has remained largely untouched since the waiters first pulled on their smart togs. Big on comfort and a blowsy kind of elegance, it offers wholesome servings of spinach soufflé or baked egg with cabbage and bacon mash to start, while mains might promise anything from bangers and mash or fish pie to “heavenly” poached sea trout with samphire and keta caviar sauce. True regulars also know what day of the week it is based on their consumption of, say, chicken and wild mushroom fricassee (Monday) or knuckle of ham (Wednesday). Time moves on, but Langan’s stays still.

Arrived to a warm welcome and seated very quickly. We where recommended to go to the restaurant by friends. Starter was lovely whilst a large portion. Ordered the Cod- but disappointed that the fish was lost in the batter which was a little undercooked. Waiter asked if ok and mentioned the batter. The crème brulee was very large and outfaced us. Overhaul the surroundings and atmosphere made up for the fish. I would recommended a visit just order something other then the cod in batter.

Langan's continues to be one of my favourite restaurants for a treat! The food and the 'buzz' of atmosphere are consistently good, with the speciality spinach soufflé... legendary! Staff are attentive without being over-bearing and were accommodating in moving our lunchtime seating to a window table when asked if this was possible. The chance of seeing 'a celebrity' in the throng is always an added bonus :)

One of the old favourites, fantastic atmosphere with lovely food and excellent service. Although I use for business it is used more for social occassions but this does not seem to matter. A great place to people / and celebrity watch.
