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

Williams’ Somerset House menu will have 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 are to include roast young broccoli, olive tapenade, sage beignet, scorched Cornish mackerel, and char-grilled leeks, Burke Brown egg and morel mushrooms. Dishes will 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 will 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 will also be 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 will 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.
