Restaurant description

Having held its Michelin star since 2002, Club Gascon serves dishes inspired by the cuisine of south west France. The revered Evening Standard restaurant critic, Fay Maschler, champions Club Gascon as ‘an absolute gift’.

With a commitment to the highest standards of freshness and authenticity, the Club Gascon menu journeys through complex and ground-breaking flavour combinations. Hailing from Toulouse, Head Chef Pascal Aussignac was named Restaurant Chef of the Year 2013 at the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards.

Encouraging a serendipitous approach to dining, Club Gascon restaurant presents a selection of small dishes, allowing diners to sample an array of flavours. Favourite dishes include sea urchins delicacy, cauliflower & crisps, or crackled capon wings, scallop ballotine, nuts & lovage. Wines are sourced from the finest regions of south west France, and the cellar at Club Gascon near the Barbican compiles over 400 bottles.

Perched next to the produce-haven of Smithfield Market, Club Gascon restaurant in London is housed in the conversion of a former Lyons tea house. Barbican, Farringdon & St Paul’s Stations are all within a 5-minute walk.

    Club Gascon has been my favourite restaurant in London for many years and last weeks dinner was no exception. The food is immaculate and every mouthful delicious, the service is second to none and the wine pairing was generous and of amazing quality. Given the number of courses and glasses we had it was also extremely good value for this standard of establishment. Can't wait to go again.

    Such a lovely long dining experience, actually great for a group outing. We got the tasting menu and loved all the different little things that we got to try. The service was impeccable and they carefully explained any questions we had. We took my mum for her birthday and she had the best evening. Thank you

    We went for a birthday lunch and were delighted with the excellent food and service. We had booked the seasonal set menu which was good value. Attention to detail in our food was beautiful. I had the beef which was so tender that a knife and fork was scarcely necessary. The staff were friendly and professional. We let happy and glowing!

    The tasting menu I booked was not available which was a tad awkward as this did not become apparent until seated. The menu I had was hit and miss with some dishes being inedible and some fine. Perhaps it was my unsophisticated palette however, had I known the menu in advance I would not have dined here. It was very stiff and formal however the staff were polite and knowledgeable. Drinks were extortionate however that's to be expected. Its in a lovely area which I would go back to.
