Squaremeal Review of The Lady Ottoline ?

The Lady Ottoline closed on 07/17

Like its sister venue the Princess Victoria, The Lady Ottoline knows how to give good gastro. Tucked down a backstreet, it feels like a great little find. Relax downstairs in the street-level bar with its dark wood, chequered floor and open fire, enjoying a pint of ale or a bar snack (think homemade sausage rolls and Scotch eggs). Alternatively, venture up to the green dining room and enjoy table service from chatty staff. Here, pepped-up pub classics make the grade with the likes of lamb tongue with soft-boiled eggs and nettled pesto, whole grilled plaice with fennel and English cucumber, or pork rib-eye with tropea onions and bitter caramel. If it’s the season, plump for a hearty portion of game. For pudding, think Eton mess with braised berries, basil and flaked almonds, or raspberry tartlet with lemon curd and roasted white chocolate.

Went for dinner upstairs last night and it was excellent. The staff are friendly, great atmosphere, food delicious. Good selection of cask ales with a few I haven't seen before. Can highly recommend the partridge parcel as well as the lamb rump and the pork belly for mains. Vey tasty and good size portions. Food could have been a bit quicker, but this place is well worth a visit.

Sadly it's going downhill after a great start. 5 visits to the Lady O since opening, my first 2 visits in nov were fantastic, albeit small portions. At the 3rd, we left after waiting an hour without food. Staff were v aplogetic. At the 4th, the food was average. the 5th yesterday was terrible – pork belly arrived 90% fat, white & wobbly, barely browned on the top – surely it should have been cooked slowly to render down? A replacement dish of venison casserole was more like a venison soup with...

Beautifully and stylishly reburbished, it creates a cosy but relaxed and sophisticated setting. The food is high-quality gastropub food, and not too expensive. There's a much greater range of bottled beer than draught, and a good wine list with good quality lower-priced options. The staff are super-friendly. It's the perfect place when you're just a bit too tired to go home and cook for yourself.
