Restaurant description

Set within one of London’s most famous buildings, Bryn Williams at Somerset House offers modern British dining, serving seasonal dishes where the fruit and vegetable components take centre stage. With a relaxed and contemporary environment, Somerset House’s creative community is at the restaurant’s core – reflected through the food, service and design.

The menu has a strong focus on sustainability, seasonality and provenance. Seasonal mains include roast young broccoli with olive tapenade and sage beignet, and scorched Cornish mackerel with char-grilled leeks, Burke Brown egg and morel mushroom. Continuing the veg-centric theme, a range of salads are also offered, as well as signature, fruit-heavy desserts such as poached rhubarb and blood orange trifle.

The restaurant is Williams’ second London opening, adding to a portfolio that includes Odette’s in Primrose Hill, where he has held the position of chef patron since 2008.

A stone’s throw from the theatres of London’s Aldwych, find Bryn Williams at Somerset House a 4-minute walk from Temple Tube Station.

On Sundays the restaurant is available for private hire.

    Soups were delicious - rest was good too. One of the waiters kept confusing the order and placed the wrong plate in front of us

    Lovely food. Came late from theatre. The restuarant host/mansger was really outstanding. She made all the difference. Did not get her name but had a turkish/syrian background. Was emphatetic and genuine, Very good value and good brasserie style cuisine. Try Oddettes Vryn’s flagship as well where we had an amazing meal 3 weeks ago and which deserves a michelin.
