Tuttons restaurant is slap, bang in the middle of Covent Garden, and what a fantastic location. Ideal for theatre, movies, shopping, meeting friends for lunch or dinner, even a coffee catch up with a friend. I remember going to this restaurant years ago and a great friend of mine mentioned they had a first date there, it’s one of Covent Garden’s most long standing restaurants and was as busy the night I went as it was when I was there twenty years ago.
They recently underwent a £1m refurbishment, the décor is great; dark wood and red leather with very nice lighting (I like coming away from a restaurant and being able to steal interior decoration details too). Serving up a classic English menu, with seasonal dishes from British suppliers.
I went on a late summer’s evening, the husband was happy as there was a wide meat menu but the vegetarian options were a bit predictable I thought. He went for the Wicks Manor braised belly of pork (‘deliciously tasty’) with puy lentils and caramelized razor russet apple (‘not sure on the lentils…’). I had one of the specials which was seasonal salad with grilled goat cheese croutons – it was light and enjoyable but I did need the fries I ordered as a side order. Desserts we had were the Classic Vanilla Crème Brulee with a shortbread biscuit for the husband (‘mmm, very good…’) and I had the dark and white chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce and Dorset clotted cream which was great, just the right brownie texture and a decaf macchiato was a perfect finale.
Good service, great location, Tutton’s is an ideal stop off point for anyone.
