Whether you're staying at Hilton London Metropole or just looking for an eco-friendly place to eat in central London, the Tyburn Kitchen is a cool, creative restaurant from this internationally-renowned hotel giant. The restaurant takes its name from the Tyburn Stone - an ancient marker that sits by the hotel entrance, and once indicated to travellers that they had arrived in London.
Tyburn Kitchen's smart, modern decor makes it extremely adaptable and ideal for almost any occasion, whether it's a celebration meal or a casual catch up with friends. The team ensure their eco-friendly credentials by sourcing 90% of ingredients within 100 miles of the hotel - the kitchen maintains close relationships with suppliers and as a result, the menu changes often with the seasons, they work with in-season produce.
The main menu is split into traditional sections with a well curated range of starters, mains and side dishes. Across the starters you'll find a variety of dishes hailing from land, sea and sky, such as Cornish sardines on toast with grilled sourdough, potato, soft sheep cheese, wild nettles and rocket slaw, alongside spiced flaked Aylesbury duck with duck fat popcorn, pickled mushrooms, baby brioche and blackberry gel, as well as grilled Sussex-farmed leek with citrus butter, capers, toasted hazelnut and Gloucestershire truffles.
The smaller plates certainly set the tone, and luckily the main dishes rise to meet the occasion. If looking to get your fill, try something like the pork tomahawk with cold pressed rape seed oil mash, sage and bacon jam, or the Romney Marsh lamb shank with cumin cinnamon gravy, celeriac mash and coriander. Vegetarian options include cauliflower with roasted, grilled, smoked, seeds and leaves, and pescatarian diners will love the sound of Newhaven cod with wilted lettuce, cockles, soya beans and cider cream.
If you have a sweet tooth, dessert comes in the form of meringue with candied beets, fresh raspberries and lemon yogurt, or perhaps you might like to try the flourless chocolate cake with butterscotch sauce and caramelised popcorn, with plenty more options besides.
