A classic 1829 townhouse with a designer-led interior of some panache, with inviting sofas and open fires. The cooking makes an impact, with the kitchen clearly taking a broad-based attitude, moving with the times and picking up ideas from near and far. How about 'pastrami' of salmon with wild garlic and micro salad, or another well-balanced starter of sliced smoked duck with figs, radishes and maple dressing? Diehards could go for a grilled steak as main course; others could opt for lamb loin and sweetbreads offset by pickled tomatoes and herby couscous. End with an attractively plated pudding such as hot chocolate fondant with white chocolate chip ice cream.
