SquareMeal Review of
Restaurant at Sanderson
The restaurant at this Berners Street hotel hasn’t gained such a reputation as a hip hang-out as the bar has, but it’s still worth a look. The room and the menu have an international feel (in a good way). Start with Tempura Bell rock oysters sourced locally from Old Billingsgate Market and move on to a seriously good rib of beef from Surrey Farm and a side of triple-cooked chips. It may not be original, but it takes a confident chef to serve this sort of food in such a high-end restaurant, and the quality of the cooking and ingredients don’t let it down. Those looking for wackiness should instead head for the afternoon tea, where English tradition has been given a makeover by the Mad Hatter. Expect the unexpected – marshmallow mushrooms tasting of strawberries and cream, a mocha chessboard gateau and an adorable cinnamon, apple and peach “Drink Me” potion.
