"VERY GOOD"

This vast dining room is now Tate Modern’s flagship restaurant, on level nine of the twisted, off-kilter pyramid that is the Switch House. Boasting fabulous views (which disappear as you sit down), the stripped-back room is dressed in raw oak and bare concrete, leading to a minimalistic, canteen-style feel. A concise menu of carefully sourced Brit dishes includes line-caught wild sea bass and Swaledale lamb rump. Continuing the theme, our starter of Hampshire’s Chalk Stream trout was delicately assembled on roasted onions, white asparagus and pea purée: the slight bitterness of the asparagus married beautifully with sweet onions and soft flesh. The lamb is the star dish however, with heritage beetroot, celeriac purée and a knock-out white port sauce. For dessert, be sure to try the lemon brûlée tart with a glass of French Muscat. The service is well informed and the à la carte isn’t prohibitively expensive, but certainly comes at a ninth-floor premuim. The pièce de résistance is Hamish Anderson's 100-strong wine list, an oenophile's dream packed with both classic and unusual bottles.

A decent place to stop off for a meal after an exhibition. Our starters of smoked salmon and carpaccio of beef were tasty albeit as "assemby" rather than "cooking" items they aren't testing the kitchen too much. Our mains of duck and seabass were pleasant, as indeed was our bottle of Lirac . In essence a good way to finish a trip to see an exhibition, but possibly not good exciting enough to merit a visit to the restaurant alone. Service friendly and timely. the view from the restaurant not as good as its touted to be- mostly blocked by an exterior wall.
