Review on The Riding House Café
The Riding House Café is a modern all-day brasserie, on the corner of Great Titchfield Street and Riding House Street, the third venture from Adam White and Clive Watson, the duo behind the successful Village East and The Garrison in Bermondsey. The buzzy canteen, formal dining room and a relaxed lounge are all joined together by the large dining bar and open kitchen.
The kitchen works to a modern European menu featuring small and large plates, which cover everything from breakfast to dinner. The plates are arranged according to price and you could choose cured sea trout, jalapeno, crème fraîche or grilled hanger steak and white bean purée. Main courses take in 10oz rib eye on the bone served with béarnaise sauce or seared sea trout, crab and leek salad and confit lemon vinaigrette. There's an array of tempting desserts including spiced gingerbread, grilled figs and caramel ice cream or a gooseberry and raspberry fool served with shortbread. The RHC is also a great place to pop in for a cup of coffee and read the papers, or in the evening choose one of their delicious cocktails.
As well as the cocktail menu there is a well-considered global wine list that offers ample choice across the range.
