SquareMeal Review of The Brackenbury Wine Rooms

A Hammersmith diamond back in the day, The Brackenbury has been dusted off and resurrected following an unfruitful hiatus. The name remains the same, but there’s a new team at the helm in the shape of Ossie Gray (ex-manager at The River Café) and two chefs with impressive CVs (think Kensington Place, The Providores etc). Some visitors (including ourselves) have found the music-free dining room rather “sparse” and underwhelming, but fans insist it’s worth the effort because the service and food are “exceptional”. Seasonal ideas and Med-influenced flavours loom large on the menu, with lots of salads on show, plus an inventory of dishes running from cuttlefish with chorizo, chickpeas, parsley and paprika or twice-baked Tunworth cheese and spinach soufflé to braised veal cheek with risotto milanese, bone marrow and gremolata. Prices may be higher than you might expect from a neighbourhood gaff, but those looking to watch the pennies can go for the affordable three-course set lunch.

Thank you to the Brackenbury for a superb birthday dinner last night - the food was exceptional and the service excellent. The interior is a little sparse but don't let this put you off - the menu celebrates the best seasonal food and portions were huge.

This review bears no resemblance to my experiences of this wonderful restaurant. I live locally and since it reopened in January, I have been eating there at least once a week. The atmosphere warm and friendly, it is full of locals and some not so local. The rooms are great and yes it is minimal in decoration but that it works really well. Service is lovely and I love the food! It has been consistently delicious and I like the changing menu. The place has been full every time I have eaten there, so clearly it is doing something right.
