Review on The Fortnum’s Bar & Restaurant at Royal Exchange

The iconic Fortnum & Mason that originally launched its flagship store in 1707 has opened its fourth UK site in one of the City's great landmarks, the spectacular Royal Exchange that can trace its history back to the 16th century. Occupied by D & D London for 15 years on the ground floor of the central courtyard, the 2,368 sq ft space now showcases a restaurant, bar and retail store created by Universal Design Studio.

Decked out in a palette of eau de nil teal, the 360-degree bar with counter seating takes centre stage, featuring a canopy of curved metal bars so the beautiful architecture of the building can still be viewed. For more leisurely dining there's elegant seated areas placed at either end of the bar.

The kitchen is an all day dining operation with offerings like caviar, oysters and hand-carved smoked salmon, alongside starters such as their signature Welsh rarebit and oeufs Drumkilbo, the Queen Mother's favourite midnight snack. Main courses usher in wild seabass with curried cauliflower and lime vinaigrette or from the land Glenarm beef rib-eye served with béarnaise and watercress. Timeless desserts include a knickerboker glory and a Braeburn apple tart tatin paired with Calvados crème fraîche.

Accompany the food is an extensive wine list, cocktails, floats and digestives.
