SquareMeal Review of The Vincent Rooms & Escoffier Room

Westminster Kingsway College’s roll call of alumni includes Jamie Oliver and Antony Worrall Thompson, both of whom learned their trade here. During term time, the relaxed Vincent Rooms and more formal Escoffier Room offer outsiders the opportunity to see (and taste) how today’s hopefuls are progressing – of course there are bound to be mishaps, but most people are happy to overlook any shortcomings in return for enthusiastic cooking at bargain prices. Eclectic flavours abound in the canteen-style brasserie, with starters such as soft-shell crab with mango salsa preceding pan-fried sea bream on crab-and-chilli risotto or an open lasagne of duck livers and wild mushrooms. The cooking is more refined next door, although Escoffier would be surprised to see the likes of roast venison with black pudding and violet potato, quince, grelots and blackberry sauce on the multi-course tasting menu (£25).

Myself and two friends had lunch in the Escofier room on the 19th October. The food was delicious and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. We were interested to know what we were eating and our waitress was more than happy to explain each course, and then each part of the course. She seemed very well versed about what was being served. My two friends had some wine with their meal but decided to ask for advice about desert wine and were very pleased with what they were served. A very pleasant lunch. I have eaten in the brasserie before but not the Escofier room and enjoyed my lunch very much. To be recommended for a leisurely private lunch, for two or ten. Pat Stocking
