Review on The Thomas Cubitt
Thomas Cubitt (the man) is widely regarded as the finest London master builder of Victorian times, responsible for much of the architectural development of Belgravia Square. A fitting name tag, indeed, for this grand Georgian and Regency townhouse, which has been lavishly refashioned as a 'public house and dining room' complete with bohemian oak floors, intricate panelling and three fireplaces.
It's a place that now operates on two levels. The ground-floor bar and sunny south-facing street terrace provide the setting for real ales, cider, some cracking wines and an all-day menu of classic gastro pub grub (served 12.00 - 10.00pm). Here you can look forward to plates of rock oysters, grilled sausages with buttered mash and red onion gravy, pies and organic burgers - plus a traditional roast on Sundays.
Upstairs are three handsome dining rooms, which come into their own for restaurant-style lunches and dinners taking in more elaborate - but equally gutsy - dishes with a modern British slant and a few flourishes here and there. Typical offerings might include cured Barbary duck salad with bittersweet Merlot vinaigrette, roast organic sea trout with creamed asparagus mash and shrimp beurre blanc, and lemon tart with buttermilk ice cream and ginger tuile.
