SquareMeal Review of
An accessible take on Marcus Wareing’s high-end cooking, Tredwells is ”perfect for couples, clients and friends alike”. Although the original small-plates menu has been replaced by a standard three courses, it’s still easy to share: our goats’ cheese and heritage tomato salad showcased decent ingredients, while a spicy, smoky starter of harissa-glazed aubergine got its kicks from chilli and coriander. To follow, slow-cooked beef short-rib falls off the bone and briny-fresh mackerel is paired with lentils. Some visitors feel let down by a lack of wow factor (“I expect a bit more from Marcus Wareing”), but we’re with those who rate the “extremely good-value” pre-theatre menu, weekend brunch, “amazing cocktails” and commendable wines by the glass and carafe. Named after the butler in Agatha Christie’s novel The Seven Dials Mystery, Tredwells is spread over three floors with attractive vintage styling and genial service throughout.
