SquareMeal Review of 1 Lombard Street

Silver Award

Next door to the Lord Mayor’s residence, 1 Lombard Street is firmly established in City diaries – although that’s not all down to the prime location or the handsome proportions of the Grade II-listed building. The food on offer more than lives up to the impressive surroundings.

About

Please note that the brasserie isn't officially open at the moment, and will reopen on the 21 June. As an alternative, The Dome Bar is open for snacks and drinks.

Sat in the heart of The City, just across from Bank station, 1 Lombard Street is a restaurant not short on wow factor. The impressive former banking hall oozes grandeur, making it the ideal place to come for a truly memorable meal. Whether you're wanting to celebrate a special occasion with a luxurious three course meal or simply want a light lunch, one of the variety of menus designed by head chef James Holden is bound to suit.

Expect lavish interiors at 1 Lombard Street, with the brasserie's impressive circular skylight casting sunlight over the bar below and giving the entire dining room a bright and airy feel. Meanwhile the walls of the restaurant play host to a number of stunning artworks including pieces by notable British artists including Antony Gormley and Steve Claydon, while mobiles hang from above.

The seasonal menus change almost weekly and are overseen by Holden, championing local suppliers and using only the very best of sustainably-sourced British produce. Starters might include dishes such as Severn & Wye smoked eel served on butter-fried rye bread, or a salted ox cheek and green bean salad.

Main courses range from a Cumberland sausages and mash to grilled Dorset blue lobster with a garlic butter, and there is also a variety of steaks on offer too. While a traditional pudding menu features classics such as Eton mess, cherry Bakewell pudding, and a dark chocolate mousse.

On top of the main menu, there is also an elaborate vegetarian and vegan menu as well as a lengthy breakfast menu with a section dedicated exclusively to Clarence Court eggs.

In terms of drinks, the wine menu covers a number of different regions at all price points, while the bar offers everything from cocktails to draught beer. A variety of soft drinks are also available.
