SquareMeal Review of The Alfred Tennyson

Formerly The Pantechnichon, this cheerfully welcoming pub makeover from the clever chaps behind The Orange and The Thomas Cubitt is bang on-trend. The whole place is (predictably) attractive – a fine Georgian edifice with big windows, nice views, a comfortably laid-back ground-floor bar and a stylishly appointed restaurant upstairs, with one menu covering both spaces. What you get is a compendium of Brit-accented dishes old and new: “good-looking” salt-and-pepper squid with smoked chilli and lime dressing; rare-breed burgers with triple-cooked chips; venison and bacon pie; guinea fowl with rainbow chard and wild mushrooms. The day’s market fish is also worth a punt (grilled Arctic char with lentils, perhaps), while dessert might promise roasted pear with custard brioche and gingerbread ice cream. Weekend breakfasts and serious Sunday roasts also make the place a popular rendezvous for locals, while the wine list is priced for easy drinking.

Timothy P. silver reviewer 13 November 2015

About time for a review of the Alfred Tennyson restaurant! 5 of us ate midweek upstairs; in a good-sized room with several tables with comfy chairs and fittings. Modest music kept conversations separate. 3 starters of grilled tempura squid looked good, and my velvety mushroom soup with a dash of spicy chili oil was excellent. Fish special was arctic char, grilled with lentils on the side; the only meat ordered was a burger with triple-cooked fries. We ordered a house French Sancerre; as this was a business meal I didn't see the bill or wine price, though the starters and mains were typical central London pricing. Service was efficient and attentive, and catered well for one late arrival.
