I went to a friend’s hen night yesterday and whilst I have been forbidden from divulging any of the details or posting photos on my blog (how mean is that?), I think I am allowed to talk about the restaurant where we had lunch. It was the first time I have been to The Roof Garden. It is just off the high street in Kensington on the 7th floor of the building. The restaurant overlooks several gardens, one of which has flamingos in it. Unfortunately on the day I visited it was very cold so although I did step outside briefly to look at the view, I think I may have to go back in the summer to fully appreciate it.
The food and the service in the restaurant were excellent. The Saturday lunch menu costs just £16.50 for 2 courses or £19.50 for 3 courses. I tried the Golden Cross Goats Cheese with apple crisps, beetroot, baby red chard, wild honey and walnut dressing followed by plaice cooked in a beer batter and was impressed with both courses. The goats cheese worked really well with the beetroot and the apple crisps and the second course of plaice had a really good light fluffy batter which was good without being too heavy as batter often can be. The only negative thing I noticed about the restaurant was that the wine is a little overpriced but I would certainly eat here again and will probably go back with my husband in the summer.
