Light and airy, but with a simple elegance that comes from clever, careful design, this sibling of La Trompette and Chez Bruce is the go-to destination for Kew’s smart set. It also gives its siblings a run for their money when it comes to quality, presentation and service, though it’s easier to get a table here. The menu is a showcase for seasonal British ingredients cooked with proper knowhow and an eye to the future rather than the past. The menu changes often, but you might find rich indulgence in the shape of roast duck breast with foie gras parfait and baby beets or Welsh lamb with crispy sweetbreads alongside contemporary dishes with a lighter touch: salmon and sea bream carpaccio dressed with lime and chilli or a heavenly mix of plaice, chorizo and squid, with an umami hit from anchovy dressing. Service is “terrific” and the wine cellar is “serious, though not necessarily pricey”.

The food was excellent, marred by the fact that it was just dumped, literally, at our table! Had a bottle of Merlot, which was cold. When we asked the 'sommelier', she 'assured' us that it was at their cellar temperature, 'like all the rest of our wines, at a steady 12 degrees, which is the temperature that Merlot should be served'!! Meanwhile, we had to ask for some bread and butter 3 times, and, when the bread eventually arrived, it was with no butter, for which we had to ask yet again. Following all this, we pointed out that we did not think that we wanted to pay the additional service charge, as we did not think the service we received deserved it. On this, the manageress marched up to us demanding to know why!!! we did, of course, explain fully. A great shame
