A smart and comfortable restaurant, converted from a former banking hall – so rather high-ceilinged – but this is subtly softened by the use of clever lighting.
Formerly Bonds, this is now run as Wheelers, under the watchful eye of Marco Pierre White.
Alex Tyndall heads the kitchen at the time of writing, and apart from the good value set lunch, the menu and its pricing is geared to City high-flyers – and filled with luxurious ingredients.
Expect starters such as ‘Oysters Rockefeller’; Dublin Bay Prawns with Béarnaise Sauce’; ‘Escargots à la Bourguignonne’; ‘Salade of Beetroot & Goats’ Cheese’ and Lobster Macaroni with Black Truffle’.
Perhaps to be followed by ‘Fish Pie’; ‘Roast Rump of Lamb with Cockles’; ‘Fish & Chips’; ‘Plateau de Fruits de Mers’; ‘Wiltshire Ham with Duck Eggs’; ‘Shepherd’s Pie’ – plus a selection of Beccleuch Beef Steaks.
They offer vegetarian choices by request.
Puds aren’t forgotten, with maybe ‘Apple Crumble’; ‘Tiramisu’ or ‘Banana & Caramel Mess’ there to tempt you.
