SquareMeal Review of Matt Worswick at the Latymer

“My favourite outside London” says a fan of Pennyhill Park and its flagship Latymer restaurant. The elegant dining room has benefited hugely from a recent makeover, while fans think that chef Matt Worswick (one of SquareMeal’s ‘rising UK stars’) “has really taken his menus to another level” in recent months. The result is sheer perfection in every department. Food-wise, expect a succession of “breathtakingly beautiful” dishes presented via a series of tasting extravaganzas in the modern idiom, with fabulous offerings ranging from a pairing of Colchester oyster emulsion, cured sea trout and Yorkshire rhubarb to a dessert involving chocolate delice, milk crumble and yoghurt sorbet. In between, there are even more “elegantly plated” Michelin-starred masterpieces – perhaps veal sweetbread accompanied by heritage carrot, pickled shimeji mushroom and liquorice or poached pavé of Gigha halibut with smoked almond pesto and seaweed beurre blanc. This is “incredible, creative and generous food” out of the top drawer. Meals are fleshed out with snacks and mini-courses, while the prestigious Pennyhill Park wine cellar provides “exceptional” drinking across the range. Knowledgeable service also strikes exactly the right note, without putting on airs and graces – “the chefs even came out to have a chat and go through the dishes”, noted one contented soul.
