Villandryon Great Portland Street is a pretty nice building, inside and out. There’s the informal setting of the cafe bar, the convenience of the takeaway counter (no they don’t do kebabs), The Red Room, aptly all decked out in red used for everything from newspaper browsing to late night tipples and then the restaurant itself serving French grub.
It’s here we kicked off dinner with a dense lentil soup and the super fresh Severn & Wye smoked salmon. This was followed by a hearty, tender 28 day dry-aged rare breed steak served alongside chips cooked in truffle oil and coated in parmesan. We likey.
Wines were matched to each course – well it is French themed – and the pudding menu is decent too. Whether you’re looking to grab breakfast on route to the office, catch up with a friend over tea and cake or take a date for dinner Villandry ticks all bases.
