Review on Wiltons

Wiltons began life as a shellfish stall in 1742 and has always been resident in St James's - a suitably swanky location for a restaurant that is respected the world over as a classic. With its uniformed doorman and well-drilled staff it feels rather like a gentleman's club - an image reinforced by the 'jacket and tie' policy, the immaculately laid tables and ultra-conservative menu.

There's nothing to frighten here, just a patriotic line-up of potted shrimps, lobster thermidor, grilled lamb cutlets or Dover sole meunière. The choice is bolstered by furred and feathered game in season, and occasionally the kitchen surprises its regulars with something a little more contemporary (seared fillet of sea bass with fennel). Then it's back to familiar home territory for sherry trifle, bread-and-butter pudding and savouries such as anchovies on toast.

British food of the old school seems to demand heavyweight French wines of the old school, and Wiltons' list is packed with vintage Bordeaux and Burgundies from some of the great years.
