Review of Albannach, Trafalgar Square


Opening Albannach a Scottish restaurant directly opposite that most English of tourist hot-spots sounds pretty daring, but that's the deal at this flash West End venue where floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto Trafalgar Square, making the bar an unrivalled location. Highland heathers, thistle fabrics and hints of tartan set the tone; a quirky chandelier fashioned from stag antlers hangs over the room, but the ambience never descends into kitsch. Behind the bar there is one of the world's finest collection of malt whiskies.

The restaurant occupies the mezzanine level, and here the décor is a sumptuous blend of chocolate oak flooring, luxurious leather chairs and classy table settings, all enclosed by an Art Nouveau balustrade. Menus are based around the finest seasonal produce from north of the Border: tradition rules in dishes such as cock-a-leekie soup, haggis with neeps and raspberry cranachan, but just about everything else is given a contemporary spin.

To begin, there might be char-grilled asparagus salad with Inverloch goats' cheese and poached Highland quails' egg or Arbroath Smokie mousse on an olive croûte with radish chutney, while mains could range from Highland hare cakes with slow-roast plum tomatoes and sage velouté to skewers of Stornoway black pudding and fresh mackerel on a bed of caramelised greens with Thermidor dressing. Round things off with a plate of Scottish cheeses or something sweet like summer pudding with Drambuie cream.

Also featured in: Harden's.
