Review on Thames View Restaurant, Sir Christopher Wren's House Hotel
Once home to the celebrated architect Sir Christopher Wren, Thames View Restaurant is set in this elegant seventeenth-century townhouse, superbly positioned by Eton Bridge, between the banks of the Thames and Windsor Castle. It's a location to die for - especially when weather is kind.
The aptly named Thames View Restaurant makes the most of the setting, with a lovely outlook over the river and elegant classical trappings all around the dining room. The kitchen works to a modern European repertoire that might commence with tuna carpaccio and caviar dressing or ballotine of duck and foie gras with cep brioche and port jelly. Main courses continue the theme, witness sea bass with lime and crayfish couscous and razor clams or roulade of corn-fed chicken breast and spinach flan. To finish, consider rhubarb fool or pear tarte Tatin with orange and cardamom ice cream; also check out the assortment of English artisan cheeses.
During the summer months, the restaurant is extended outside onto the Champagne Terrace overlooking the river, where guests may dine under parasols and absorb the quintessentially English atmosphere.
