The Only Running Footman

5 Charles Street, Mayfair, LONDON, W1J 5DF

1 rosettes

It looks like a pub, which indeed it is, but there's more than meets the eye to The Only Running Footman. The distinctive red-brick corner building in Mayfair has a ground-floor bar where you can have a drink and pick something off the all-day bar menu (from a sandwich to chargrilled Longhorn rib-eye steak), plus a smarter and quieter upstairs restaurant, where closely-packed tables are done-out in crisp white linen and all is a little more refined. (There's also a chef's table in a separate room which doubles up as a cookery school.) Upstairs you might start with sautéed Cornish squid and chorizo salad, followed by pan-fried sea bass with caramelised salsify and sauce vierge, finishing off with a berry Pavlova or cheeses from the Bath Cheese Company with pear chutney and pain aux fruits.
