On Sunday I had what can only be described as the perfect Sunday lunch. Ive been dying to write about it all week but it has been one of those weeks.
I am a big fan of Redhook in general. It does fabulous cocktails and the interior is gorgeous. Despite usually being closed on Sundays it recently teamed up with Cornish Grill (who supply top quality Cornish meat and fish) to open a pop up one Sunday each month, with guest chefs in the kitchen. This month it was Wesley Small, head chef at Charlottes Bistro in Chiswick.
If I am honest, they had me at the DIY bloody mary bar. It greats you as soon as you walk through the door like an old friend ready to show you a good time. There was a very friendly bartender on hand with advice on how many ice cubes to add and how much tabasco was likely to blow my head off but the rest was down to me and the best part is that you can have as many as you like. I was told that one customer managed 12 trips!!
As if unlimited bloody marys want enough, we were also provided with a Ruby Red Royale Apperitif, which consisted of vodka, elderflower, grapefruit and fizz.
The food was all delicious. The first course was lightly smoked mackerel with salt baked beetroot, ewes yoghurt horseradish, pickled cucumber and caviar. It was light and delicate and left me wanting more. I’m afraid that it looked so delicious that I dived straight in before I remembered to take a photograph, so the picture below doesn’t do it justice.
Next was a slow roast leg of lamb with mint sauce and duck fat roast potatoes. The meat was lovely and pink, there was a great selection of seasonal vegetables including red cabbage and mini turnips and of course there was a massive yorkshire pudding.
Pudding was sticky toffee pudding with toffee apple sauce and clotted cream ice cream. The ice cream was the highlight, it really tasted of clotted cream and went perfectly with the sticky toffee. I would have happily finished off another scoop.
To finish we were served coffee and chocolate truffles. All this for £30 a head! I am confident that you would struggle to find a better value or better quality Sunday lunch in London.
Absolutely thoroughly recommended. 9/10. Can’t wait to see what is on offer next month!!
