Eat London and other guides

Autumn – means the appearance of the annual restaurant guides in addition, of course, to the Loire vintage. We are very pleased to be featured in a new guide called A hedonist’s guide to … Eat London – the restaurant insiders’ guide to London’s best restaurants.

Eat London advises diners at the RSJ to ‘abuse the wine list’ and lists us ‘a clandestine rendezvous’! ‘The cooking is French on the whole, but takes in Mediterranean influences and likes to make use of name-checked seasonal British ingredients.’

‘The wine list, a favourite of Heston Blumenthal (celebrated chef@The Fat Duck), is a long love letter to the Loire Valley, with the 250 or so different bins from the region.’ The scope of our selection of wines by the glass is also praised.

There are 150 London restaurants listed and chosen by ‘those who know the most about food’. Those in the know include Angela Hartnett, Bill Knott, Fay Maschler, Gary Rhodes, Giles Coren, Heston Blumenthal, Jancis Robinson, Jay Rayner, Oliver Peyton, Pierre Koffman, Rpwley Leigh, Trevor Gulliver and Zoe Williams.

The Good Food Guide 2008
We have now notched up 28 years without interruption in the UK’s most famous and long established guide. We do, however, have some way to go before we can match the Connaught with 56 years or the Gay Hussar with 52!

‘RSJ’s long standing appeal is the list of wonderful Loire wines and a sensibly modern menu that for many years fused French and British styles, but is now incorporating Italian dishes’.
