SquareMeal Review of Aviary

Bronze Award

The first rooftop bar from ETM (who run The Jugged Hare, among others) roosts atop the Royal London House Hotel, joining the group's Burdock on the ground floor. This tenth-floor space combines city slick and 1920s glamour, the glittering chandeliers and royal blue chairs juxtaposed with a large convex window overlooking a stunning terrace. The suited and booted crowd chow down on an eclectic menu which, despite stretching to cover as many bases as possible, delivers. Our roast chicken main was a golden, succulent triumph and we loved the After Eight Arctic roll: mint ice cream wrapped in rich sponge with a hard chocolate shell, topped with chocolate soil and vanilla ice cream. The only misstep was yellowfin tuna sashimi, so pre-loaded with wasabi that it threatened to blow heads off. At the sizeable island bar you’ll find the likes of vodka-based Sour Cherry Bombs, while we recommend an absinthe-rinsed Tequila-and-beetroot blast called Jeff Goes South. Prices are fair for the area and the view from the roof terrace is really something.

Everything here is elegant, the excellent high end modern European cuisine, the decor, the staff and even the atmosphere. You leave feeling better in every way!

What a disappointment
27 February 2017  
Ordered the cheese burger, worst I have had in a long time, including any at a fast food outlet. Consisted of two frozen patties, overcooked, with a slice of processed cheese in between. No tomato, no lettuce, no sauce. The chips were also frozen thin cut fries. Could've gone to McDonald's and had infinitely better for much less. When mentioned to the waitress that it was overcooked and tasted burnt, I was told it was cooked on a chargrill which gave a specific flavour. She really wasn't interested.
