Near to the Houses of Parliament, the rather handsome Georgian building is also home to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, so you might be sharing the space with a bevy of politicians and architects at certain sittings. Its duo of dining rooms sport a fetching mix of modernity and clubby restraint, run by impeccably correct and professional staff, and if you’re not one to miss out on a cocktail opportunity, start things at the Pembury Bar, with its elegant grand hotel opulence. Steve Groves fronts up the kitchen, interpreting the Roux house style to deliver light, modern, smartly-engineered dishes that merge British, French and broader European ideas, where starters might see mackerel supported by smoked buttermilk, cucumber and quinoa. Mains courses could star dry-aged duck pointed up with beetroot, chicory and Yukon Gold potato, or offer a trip to the Hampshire terroir via Test Valley trout with watercress, leek and pine nut. It all looks pretty as a picture on the plate too, right through to desserts such as apple soufflé with muscovado, Calvados and oats.
