Launceston Place

Some may say that fine dining is dead – but Launceston Place is a stark reminder of just how flattering immaculately presented food, paired wines and polished décor can be. Nestled amongst the pastel coloured townhouses of some of London’s wealthiest residents, it is only in the picturesque backstreets of Kensington where such a restaurant could be one’s ‘local’. Inside,
hailing from the equally posh county of Cotswolds, head chef Timothy Allen offers inspired and refined English country fare with specialities such as the roasted scallop with glazed pork belly and the 32 day ages beef rump, but to get the full effect of Allen’s talents we recommend the tasting menu.Passionate sommelier Augustin Trapero is almost worth the whole experience
thanks to his detailed and enthusiastic knowledge of wines from the restaurants award winning wine list. Don’t skip out without sampling the desserts, in particular, the soufflés. Dinner at Launceston Place is more than just a meal,but an entire experience. If you’re in the mood for pampering of the gastronomic kind, this is when mother’s nagging about standing up straight will come in handy. Throw on your best jacket, don’t slouch, and be ready for a truly special evening.
