The Jam Cupboard at Rydges Hotel

SquareMeal Review of The Jam Cupboard at Rydges Hotel

Housed within the refurbished Rydges Hotel not far from Gloucester Road tube station, the stylish Jam Cupboard mixes the big-city vibes of a New York-style central bar with a dining room majoring on perky Anglo-European cuisine with a few eclectic overtones. The drinks offer brings international wines alongside classic martinis, mojitos and brambles, while the seasonal menu might kick off with asparagus and hazelnut risotto or beetroot-cured gravadlax with mustard dressing and pickled cucumber. To follow, consider slow-braised Irish ox cheeks with glazed Chantenay carrots and horseradish pomme purée, a char-grilled burger or cod fillet with Provençal vegetables and basil oil, before rounding off with classic lemon tart or roasted peaches with lemon and thyme. Breakfast is worth knowing about and set menus are deemed ‘excellent value’ – especially if you’re en route to the Royal Albert Hall.

I would recommend The Jam Cupboard for great food and good service.. With the Square Meal offer I found it good value for money and would definitely return again. As myself and my friend were going to the Proms at the Albert Hall it was a comfortable 10 minute walk. Lovely modern decor and relaxing ambience.

Not more than a few strides from the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, this well appointed restaurant serves the function of escape to stylish venue pretty well. The special offer made the evening surprisingly modest in cost - two courses and a bottle of wine with service for less than £60 in central London. Attentive service. A wider choice of desserts wouldn't go wrong, but I'll be back. Who needs pudding anyway?

3 of us went for a free concert dinner. The food was generally pretty good. Starter of fish cakes was well cooked although the tartare sauce was a little bland. The lamb steak was large, properly seasoned and cooked and nicely presented. Drinks were a bit hit or miss. I ordered an alcohol free cocktail however the waiter wasn't familiar with their cocktail list and instead gave me the alcoholic version. Likewise ordering a small glass of wine resulted in a large one being delivered - staff didn't seem very well trained, but we're keen to please. The atmosphere was a bit disappointing, but imagine later in the evening and the week would be quite lovely. Value for money was good with the square meal offer of 50% off the food, but would not be quite so attractive if you were paying full price.
