Summary

Welsh chef, Bryn Williams (of Odette’s, in NW3 and in North Wales at Porth Eirias) makes a foray into a more central location, in a stately chamber within Somerset House. There’s nothing but praise for the “personable” service and “very imaginatively conceived and carefully prepared dishes”, but the way it promotes its ‘flexitarian’ credentials (putting fruit and veg front and centre) can grate – “the menu can seem irritating owing to placing the protein after the veg” and, more seriously, more than one veggie luncher has bizarrely encountered a set menu with no satisfactory veggie alternative (“unheard of in modern veg-friendly civilisation?”).

"Very good indeed, and the emphasis on the veg is commendable. Bizarre though to have a set menu with just one starter (fish) and one main (duck)."

"A second visit and the set lunch was both very good value and also very good. My Welsh dining companion said the lamb stew was like "...Mam ei wneud""

"Had the detox set lunch - beautifully prepared and served plates of food - with no meat or fish in sight. A really inspiring and exciting meal. And reasonably priced. "
