Review on Belair House

Belair House is set in the exclusive area of Dulwich Village, a short train journey from Victoria Station. Entrepreneur Ibi Issolah made his name at L'Entranger, a high-class French joint in Kensington, but defected to the rural fringes of the metropolis in 2004. Not for him a predictable gastro pub; instead he set his heart and his sights on a tranquil Grade II-listed Georgian manor house overlooking the picturesque pastures of Belair Park.

After much renovation, the ground-floor bar is now wall-to-wall black, while the restaurant is wall-to-wall white with a shiny orange floor, orange chairs, mirrors and a remarkable light fitting that resembles a mature trailing vine.

The kitchen works to as seasonal menu that cleverly brings together French, Japanese and other Asian trends. To start, avocado, spring onion and rice noodle spring rolls might sit alongside Irish Kettyle-farmed beef tartare with pommes frites and green leaves, while mains might embrace anything from lemon sole and vegetable tempura with ponzu sauce and grapefruit hollandaise to confit lamb shoulder with wild rice, almond and raisin pilaf. Desserts stay closer to home for Baileys cheesecake with coffee sauce or marmalade bread and butter pudding. Backing up the food is a staggering 600-bin wine list with a strong French presence and a reputation for painless mark ups.
