Fenchurch Restaurant is a rooftop restaurant in the City serving contemporary British cuisine alongside fantastic views of London. It's located on the 37th floor of the same building that houses the city's infamous Sky Garden – aka London’s highest public garden.

The kitchen is led by Kerth Gumbs, who combines seasonal British ingredients with Caribbean flavours and influences from his Anguillan heritage to create his theatrical menus. Kerth brings with him decades of experience working in world-class restaurants, including Ormer Mayfair, Tom Aikens and Joel Robuchon’s L’Atelier.

Both a la carte and tasting menus are available. The a la carte offering leans towards British ingredients and flavours with a modern twist, while the tasting menu is rooted in Kerth’s love for Caribbean cuisine. On the former, expect to find dishes such as nut crusted halibut with clams, crushed celeriac and sea vegetables, venison loin with parsnip, Hen of the woods, chestnut and a spiced jus, and stuffed gnocchi with Fourme d’Ambert, pickled shallots and leeks.

While the tasting menu starts with snacks such as jerk beef tartare, mac n cheese bites and sourdough bread served with curried haddock and tomato butter. And moves onto the likes of Johnny Cake served with pickled crab, scotch bonnet mayo and roe, fungi and salt fish served with octopus, gungo peas, okra and cornmeal, as well as roasted scallops with carrots, curried lobster and butter sauce. This menu can also be paired with prestige wines or creative Caribbean-inspired cocktails made by the restaurant’s expert mixologists, sich as a Rhu-Tai made with rhubarb, orgeat and lime.

If you prefer to choose your own wine, the menu has been carefully chosen by the Fenchurch Sommelier tea and features a diverse selection of wines across a large range of vintages, countries, regions and styles.

Full of flavour
Our entrance was speedy, straight past the queues of sightseers, up the lift, and out into a loud and lively sky garden floor, complete with Friday night parties and live band. Up two more flights of stairs for drinks on the high level terrace, with time to absorb the swimming-pool style acoustics echoing off the glass roof and walls. Into the restaurant for dinner, and suddenly all was relaxed and calm. A choice of good breads and butter started us off, then the chilled heritage tomato salad with warm peaches was a hit, and my sea trout with chargrilled broccoli was light but packed great flavours. We both had succulent roast cod with creamy seafood risotto topped with crunchy puffed wild rice, a great dish. An interesting wine list that was hard to choose from, we went for a bottle of Rupert & Rothschild Nadine Chardonnay which was so full of flavour. Romantic views through the tree ferns as the sun went down over the river, delicious food, friendly relaxed service and great wine list, makes us feel lucky to live in London.

View + food = winning formula
Tall buildings seem all the rage in London these days and, if you have an iconic landmark, then why not put a restaurant in there too? Too often, however, the complaint can be levelled at such venues that customers just end up paying for the view or the ‘experience’ and the food becomes an after-thought. At Fenchurch though (on level 37 of the ‘Walkie Talkie’), my comrade and I were impressed from beginning to end. This is more than just a good view; it is a restaurant with serious ambitions to deliver high quality food, with a key focus on attention to detail. Even the queuing to enter, about which I had been warned, was not a bother, although having a restaurant reservation does allow you to be fast-tracked past the lengthy line of sightseers. On arrival, via the ear-popping lift, guests get to witness London at its best from amidst an oasis of quasi-tropical greenery. One quick flight of stairs up and through a slightly counter-intuitive doorway, and you arrive at Fenchurch. A sense of calm immediately pervades. Diners are cocooned from the crowds and get to luxuriate in comfy seats coloured a warm yellow, offsetting the muted grey and brown tones elsewhere. Presentation and design throughout were impressive, not just the décor, but also the format/ feel of the menus, the crockery, glassware etc. In terms of food, either an a la carte or a tasting menu are available, with the premise being seasonal British cooking. Although an amuse bouche comprising what was essentially a crisp with dollops of taramasalata bordered on both the absurd and the pretentious, there were no complaints about the remainder of our food. This spanned the range of breads with homemade butter, our starters and mains. For me, the stand-out dish was my main which comprised a beautifully presented loin of venison (done very lightly pink), which was rich and flavoursome, accompanied by pickled red cabbage, pear and juniper. It was close to sublime. We paired the dish (and my colleague’s cod) with a Pinot Noir from Oregon, chosen from an inventive (if not cheap) wine list. The meal also ended on a high with incredibly well-made coffees. Many restaurants seem to consider coffee to be a means to a (literal) end, but here, as with the rest of the meal, clear thought had undoubtedly been given to the blend and strength. A fitting concluding note, and further proof – if it were needed - that Fenchurch has a winning formula.
