Review on Andrew Edmunds

Fads and fashions come and go, but Andrew Edmunds just seems to go on forever. This cramped and imperfectly formed Soho gem has outlived many of its more auspicious rivals and neighbours in this neck of the woods, thanks largely to its atmosphere, attitude and huge helpings of unadulterated peasant-style food.

The interior has something of a retro wine bar but it's also distinctly clubby, whether you opt for the narrow ground floor or the dimly lit basement. There's wood-chip on the walls and the seating is mostly pews, but nobody minds because the food does its job. To start there might be pork rillettes with toasted walnut and raisin bread or a health-giving salad. Beyond that, expect slow-cooked lamb shanks, roast guinea fowl and heartwarming stews in abundance (duck breast with Puy lentils and capers, for example). If you can manage afters, the choice is between fruit crumbles, lemon tart and ice creams. There are some cracking bottles to be discovered on the wine list, too.
