wilton's [London]

My husband just booked a dinner @ Wilton's, assuring me it's "up your alley." Which is to say, I heart trad British fare.

So far, we have other res. @ St. John's Hotel and the Bull and Last in Chalk Farm.

Thoughts re adding Wilton's the the list? Other places you'd choose over Wilton's from that genre?

  1. I haven't actually been to Wilton's, but did spend a long time selecting a trad british restaurant for a friend's birthday a few months back.

    We settled on Hereford Road, which is a little inconveniently located unless you're already out west, but does good food at great prices. I'd seriously consider adding it to your list.

    1. Have the Dover sole at Wiltons. I also love Bull & Last for dinner. I've been to the St. John Hotel for breakfast, and it was great. I might add The Ledbury to your mix, and maybe J. Sheekey -- excellent for oysters and fish.

        Rules.

        Without a shadow of doubt. It would always head any list I made for traditional British food in the capital.

        And, unlike Wiltons, it has no farcical requirement for men to wear jackets. Which is why I'll not be eating at Wiltons any time soon.

          We settled on Rules (and not because of the jacket!). Thanks.

            Good call, Sue.

            I think it's my favourite restaurant when I'm visiting the capital. And, with the game season well under way, you're visiting at probably its best time.
