SquareMeal Review of Charlotte's W5

Silver Award

What a fabulous space” exclaims a fan of Charlotte’s W5 – a big venue offering the good folk of Ealing a flexible space for socialising, snacks and drinks. Housed in what was a grand Victorian stable block, complete with a smart conservatory, “gorgeous” marble-topped bar and outdoor terrace, it provides ample opportunities for business breakfasts, blow-out dinners and everything in between. The “usual” does not apply here, with most dishes on the inventive contemporary menu advertised as tasters, small or large plates designed for sharing – veal carpaccio with cornichons and mustard mayonnaise, perhaps, or home-made ricotta with summer beets and cashews. To finish, groups can assemble luscious bespoke platters from desserts such as cherry sorbet with summer fruits or set Guernsey cream with peach and lemon thyme. Drinks are a serious business too, from single-origin coffee to craft cocktails, decent wines and an enticing gin selection “as long as your arm”.

What Ealing really needs.....
12 April 2016   
What a fabulous space, such fantastic staff and amazing food. Charlotte's W5 is exactly what Ealing and West London craved for. Entering into a bright and airy conservatory with a gorgeous marble topped bar; being greeted by warm and friendly staff, we were shown around and informed about the 'Third Place' concept. The 'usual' does not apply here. The food is advertised in three different sizes: taster - small- large, perfect if you can't decide what you want, or if you want to try everything! You can come here for a 'traditional' meal and have a starter main and dessert if you wish but I guarantee if you approach this with an excitable open mind you will learn to love the options Charlotte's W5 gives you. With food options ranging from cheese on toast to Burrata. We decided to go for a mixture of everything: Truffle and Artichoke Risotto, Rabbit Ragu, Truffle Arancini, Ham Hock. With my love of cheese, I went straight in for the Buratta, served with butternut squash, pine nuts and sage- creamy, cheesy goodness with a crunch from the pine nuts... a cheese lovers dream. The Octopus is thinly sliced and tender served with an egg yolk and crispy squid. The drinks menu is extensive with something for everyone. A gin list as long as your arm and cocktail list to satisfy even the most curious of you - The ugly, slick and dapper a cocktail of Calvados, Balsamic vinegar, Port and black pepper . I know what you're thinking, 'It cant be done', well it can and it is being done amazingly well by Fredi the head bartender. Where else would you be able to order 4 desserts and not feel ashamed that you could eat them all? Order as much dessert as you like, the small tester sizes are great for working out what you would come back and have next time ( in a much bigger size) Anyone living in London, even if it's not the West, should get on a train/ bus/ bike and try this little wonder, hidden in Dickens Yard. Beer, sharing food, desserts and what I can see being a very popular outdoor terrace in the summer.... you can't go wrong.

Charlotte's W5- not a restaurant
26 March 2016   
Went tonight for the first time to this new and happening place to eat. The food was good, without exception; we chose four dishes to share and two desserts. The menu is interesting and fine for vegetarians. However, it was odd to be seated at a table where the banquette is lower than the seat of the person sitting on a chair opposite you, when you are sharing a meal; it was surprising when I asked for bread to be told that they don't serve bread- when I remarked that I had never been in a restaurant where bread was not served I was told that this is not a restaurant. We found the service somewhat over enthusiastic, so that when in the middle of conversation on several occasions we were asked if we were OK, wanted anything else, had chosen the wine etc,. I really think they should reconsider the practice of not offering bread-mevery restaurant/cafe on the Continent does..
