Review on Palmerston Bar & Dining Room
Eye-catching, ornate chandeliers sourced from Deptford Market catch the eye in this fully formed gastro pub The Palmerston Bar & Dining Room on Lordship Lane, East Dulwich. The ornate Victorian interior has been kept intact, although the interior now sports brown leather banquettes as well as oak panelling and wood floors.
Chef/proprietor Jamie Younger is no stranger to big London kitchens, having done time at The Wolesley and with Simon Hopkinson at Bibendum. Given his grounding, it's no surprise that big, bold, gutsy flavours predominate on the menu. A lot of French-inspired and Mediterranean stuff generally shows up in the shape of, perhaps, Italian sausage with Castelluccio lentils and poached egg, braised pork cheeks with chorizo and white beans, and fillet of wild sea bass with grilled vegetable relish, aïoli and basil.
There's also abundant game in season (anything from wood pigeon and pheasant terrine to traditional roast grouse with all the trimmings), while desserts might range from fig and almond tart to nougat parfait with blackberry sauce. The wine list is equally beefed-up, with plenty of big-hearted drinking from around the world.
