SquareMeal Review of
Scoff & Banter Kensington
This bar/restaurant concept is dedicated to what it calls ‘great British soul food’. During the day, the kitchen serves up soups, assorted sandwiches, sharing platters and some please-all mains such as rib-eye and chips or goats’ cheese and onion tart, while evening brings an extended menu of revitalised Brit classics. Kick off with a pressing of chicken and ham with pea vinaigrette, move on to shepherd’s pie with savoy cabbage, ham and eggs or organic salmon with shellfish broth, and round off with apple crumble or Eton mess. To drink, expect a well-spread list of international wines and some decent bottled beers. The Scoff & Banter moniker conjures up all sorts of socialising possibilities: grub and chat, food and conversation… you get the picture.
