SquareMeal Review of Davy's at St James's

Bronze Award

With its restrained, dark-hued ambience, this branch of the trusted Davy’s chain is a popular haunt for the pinstriped brigade. Despite its proximity to St James’s Palace, prices here are good enough to suit parsimonious republicans: around £25 bags a cracking Rioja Crianza or Davy’s own deeply sinkable Pinot Grigio from a cannily collated list that includes three dozen by the glass & peaks with a patrician Chassagne-Montrachet at £75. To eat, Davy’s egalitarian nosh includes duck liver pâté, followed by 28-day aged steak, for example. And there are tankards of Davy’s Old Wallop or Whitstable Oyster Ale, too.

Enjoyable and very Piccadilly

As it was Maundy Thurday and before a Bank holiday many groups took advantage of this friendly and classy pub to socialise.  The food was good and in reasonable sized portions.  The wines were excellent.  Davys never serves anything disappointing. My friend was impressed for her first visit.  It never fails to deliver.

Escape from the ubertrendy and uberpriced dining experiences that erupt around Piccadilly and Regent Street to Davy's. This is an underground oasis offering quality British food and well-chosen wine from its cellars. The Fillet steak was the pinkest I have ever eaten, but without the blood – one of the best. Staff are professional, well informed and personable.
