A stolid red-brick corner edifice in affluent Kensington, formal service in the lead-windowed Cheneston dining room extends to a commis chef on hand to carve from the roast-of-the-day trolley. A prawn and crayfish cocktail with brown bread and lemon is spanking-fresh and richly dressed, and might precede fried tenderloin and slow-roasted belly of Dingley Dell pork, which has perfect crackling, well-seasoned potato galette and a fortifying jus. Finish with a chocolate study that combines a smooth dark parfait, deeply rich mini brownies, a crisp tuile and butterscotch sauce. Incidentals offer a nod to modernism with foaming appetisers and pre-desserts, the latter perhaps lemon curd mousse under yogurt froth.
