Review on Percy & Founders
Percy & Founders offers an all day eating experience with flexibility as its hallmark, located on the junction of Mortimer Street and Berners Street, part of the Fitzroy Place housing, office and retail development on the old Middlesex Hospital. The restaurant takes its name from the Duke of Northumberland, Hugh Percy and the group of 16th century philanthropists who founded the Middlesex Hospital in 1755. It's a vast 200-cover venue, with a 24-cover terrace operated by Open House, the sister company to Cubitt House who own The Orange, The Thomas Cubitt and The Pantechnicon Rooms.
The restaurant has a clever open plan design which offers several different areas for eating and drinking. The relaxed Reading room looks out onto the square, while the Cocktail Lounge & Dining Bar is ideal for a quick snack. The smart wood panelled dining room has oak wood flooring with views through a glass door of the ornate restored hospital chapel.
The kitchen has devised a seasonal menu of British and European dishes based on carefully sourced produce. So expect dishes in the shape of rabbit terrine with pickled girolles and mustard crème or tuna carpaccio, avocado, spring onion and lime amongst the starters. When it comes to main courses, there's pan fried bream, green and yellow courgette, fennel, mint or pork chop, broccoli, mustard jus and fresh apple. To finish enjoy desserts such as peanut butter parfait with fresh cherries or vanilla cheesecake, English strawberries and Pimm's jelly.
There's an extensive wine list that roams the globe, with a good selection available by the glass and carafe, together with a comprehensive cocktail menu.
