The Restaurant at The Capital finds its home in one of London’s most well-heeled neighbourhoods, rubbing shoulders with high end shops and world-renowned museums. Its iconic London location lends itself to the restaurant’s staunchly English service. Here you’ll be warmly welcomed by a team that takes pride in its friendly offering.
Mirroring the service is the elegant British menu that focuses on elevating local, seasonal produce through careful handling. Head chef Chris Prow has forged relationships with small, local suppliers and farmers to ensure the team are able to use the finest ingredients across their range of menus.
Starters on the all-day menu change regularly but might feature crispy truffled mac and cheese bites with Parmesan and truffle mayo or a comforting bowl of soup with sourdough bread and butter. For light lunches or sharing-style meals there’s a run of small plates like ham hock with foie gras and mustard or The Capital’s take on a classic Caesar salad, which make ideal family-style grazing plates.
For something more substantial there is a line-up of crowd-pleasing sandwiches and burgers served with skinny fries or a handful of mains. Here heroes include the dry aged rib-steak, which is cooked to order and served with triple cooked chips and salad or the lemon sole which comes with creamed dill spinach, toasted almonds and capers.
The accompanying sommelier-chosen wine list is far reaching, and there’s a wide range of beers, cocktails and soft drinks too, to cater to all tastes.
Pleasingly classic, the dining room features light wood panelled walls, high backed upholstered chairs and crisp table settings for an ambiance which is luxurious yet unpretentious.
Serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner; whether you need to fuel up before wandering around the V&A, or if you fancy somewhere to unwind after shopping, The Restaurant at The Capital has something to suit. Dietary requirements are also happily accommodated, with the team recommending you let them know 24 hours before you visit to ensure they can provide you with the best possible options to suit your needs.
