Acclaimed Welsh chef Bryn Williams opened his first London restaurant and bar in a decade here at Somerset House in spring 2018. Expect a casual, modern British dining experience with fruit and veg taking centre stage, alongside a fantastic bar for every occasion.

Williams’ Somerset House menu has a strong focus on sustainability, seasonality and provenance. Fruits and vegetables are the stars of the show, with small plates including the likes of rainbow carrots, hand-dived scallop, sauterne, and pickled mooli, black garlic, raw apple, sage and Cumbrian beef.

Seasonal mains include roast young broccoli, olive tapenade, sage beignet, scorched Cornish mackerel, and char-grilled leeks, Burke Brown egg and morel mushrooms. Dishes are also be available from the grill, such as grilled cauliflower, golden raisin, capers, soft polenta. In a continuation of the veg-centric theme, a range of salads are also be on offer, such as charred chicory, sour onions, smoked ricotta and rapeseed oil dressing. Signature, fruit-heavy desserts include bay leaf panna cotta, blackberry, lime curd and poached rhubarb and blood orange trifle.

The space is also home to a draught beer bar, the only one at Somerset House, with statement overhead copper beer casks and bar fronts made from Welsh slate. Both the bar and the restaurant serve as a hub for Somerset House’s resident creative community and wider visitors.

I’m a firm believer that a piece of fruit or veg should be treated with the same amount of care and respect as a cut of meat or fillet of fish – if not more. I’m thrilled to be opening a new restaurant that’s not only in a stunning location, but where fresh, locally sourced produce is the focus and fruit and veg take centre stage.
