Squaremeal Review of The Punchbowl London ?

This gorgeous old wood-panelled boozer has seen plenty of Mayfair life over three centuries, including a spell under the ownership of Guy Richie, who drank here with his celeb chums. The former Mr Madonna sold up in 2013, but new owners have kept the real ales and essential pubbiness of the bar, and the pretty first-floor dining room retains its gold-painted ceiling and jovial yet more formal atmosphere. Smart staff move deftly between tables, distributing refined British gastro fare such as ale-battered catch of the day, minted peas and chunky hand cut chips. Main-course Norfolk chicken breast is pepped up with forest mushrooms, celeriac, roasted garlic and a truffled tarragon sauce, while generous portions of English ricotta and spinach ravioli receive a textural boost from courgette ribbons, lemon thyme and caper brown nut butter. Rolo chocolate and blood orange fondant with honeycomb ice cream and a handful of sugared almonds makes for a delightful ending, helped by a global wine list that is pitched at regular pub quaffers as well as local Mayfair millionaires.
