Skye Gyngell brings Spring to Somerset House, now open

Skye Gyngell’s first solo venture, Spring, is now open. The restaurant brings Skye’s acclaimed ingredient-led cooking to our New Wing.

Skye and her team are guided by the changing seasons, writing daily lunch and dinner menus that present the best produce simply and memorably within the elegant 19th century drawing room, which is has been refurbished to its former glory.  It is the first time that the space has been open to the public for over 150 years.

The light-flooded drawing room, which seats 100 covers, is decorated simply and warmly allowing the large windows, airy high ceilings and original cornicing to frame the space. Cloaked by Black Olive trees, an atrium garden sits enclosed at the room’s centre with flora and fauna designs by acclaimed landscape designer Jinny Blom.

Other collaborators on the project include artwork by Emma Peascod and Valeria Nascimento, natural oak flooring by Danish brand Dinesen, and interior design by Australian, Briony Fitzgerald. Spring's branding and identity has been created by Studio Frith. Uniforms are courtesy of celebrated designers Egg and Trager Delaney, and reflect the restaurant’s easy elegance.

The restaurant team is led by Senior Restaurant Manager Laurens-Jan Peters as well as Head Maitre’D Sarah Flyckt who has previously worked at London restaurants The Delaunay and The Wolseley. Overseeing Spring as Director of Operations is Skye’s long-term business partner, Marie Jackson.
