Marcus Wareing brought his Tredwell restaurant to Covent Garden back in …. and it went on to win AA’s London Restaurant of Year. A fantastic accolade for a ‘celeb’ Chef who keeps his profile quite low unlike others I could mention.
On a recent visit to the area for a musical, we took advantage of a pre-theatre set menu courtesy of Bookatable Star Deals. I will say that Star Deals are great. You can enjoy some great award winning restaurants, even Michelin, as they push to fill their early or late slots by offering some value for money deals.
Tredwells is a cute little casual dining spot just down from Seven Dials, opposite the ever busy Dishoom and iconic Stringfellows. Specializing in British seasonal food, looking at the menu I was happy to see some simply no-nonsense dishes as it was actually just what the doctor ordered.
For our starter we has pork belly and ham hock raviolo with piccalilli and mustard and Brixham crab, brandade with cucumber, pickled celery and sesame cracker. Our main courses consisted of char-grilled lamb chop, slow cooked shoulder with broad beams and mint. I had char-grilled hanger steak, braised shallot with peppercorn steak which was cooked medium rare and was the most tender tasty meat I have tasted in a long time. We had a side of truffle macaroni cheese and smoked potato & gruyere croquettes which were to die for.
Dessert were a selection of cheeses and salted caramel mouse. Tredwells is lush. A place for gorgeous food and great service.
