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.

    Service remains erratic and sometimes borders on the thoughless; but is always good natured which makes up for a lot.

    Everything was really good. Booking, welcome, ambience,menu and food. Really enjoyed this birthday event.

    Great flavour combinations using seasonal ingredients, simply but beautifully presented. A relaxed, tranquil environment and good service overall apart from the response to my question regarding the triple cooked chips side dish; having ordered a vegetarian starter and main course I asked if they were vegetarian, the waitress said "yes, they are potatoes" while walking away. Note to restaurant; your customers will know what chips are made of but not the fat they're cooked in!!

    Fantastic setting, lovely food and attentive service. Risotto a little salty but otherwise all perfect.

    Excellent service - very friendly & courteous from the minute we stepped in to leaving the door. Food was delicious, wine was also very good and well priced for the location and smartness of the restaurant. I enjoyed my chicken leg confit very very much. Will happily return again and maybe try the Terrace Bar outside too.
