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.

    Food menu was great. The cocktail could have done with a bit more of a kick given the price tag on them. The waitress was enthusiastic but not trained well. She was quite intrusive and clumsy with clearing the plates and glasses

    Good quality, good service, good ambience. Stupidly minimal portions - my husband got a pizza on the way home.

    Delicious locally sourced food. A lovely restaurant with good atmosphere. A shame about the lack of carrots which took two options off the menu on a Friday night.

    The salmon starter was excellent, but the sea bream main and the lemon dessert were indifferent. With so many restaurants around, I have no reason to go there again.

    Food was excellent! Service was really quick, maybe a little too quick between courses. We could have done with an extra 5 minutes, but not a massive issue. All in all, would definitely return. Great value for money.
