Furthemore, the establishment features a Private Dining Room which is ideal for an intimate setting for up to 12 guests. The space features a modern, long dark walnut table complemented by rose upholstered chairs, all set beneath an original historic skylight with atmospheric lighting.

During my recent visit to Berners Tavern, I had the pleasure of immersing myself in a culinary journey filled with exquisite flavors and impeccable presentation. To commence the evening, I opted for a glass of rich Italian red wine, setting the tone for what proved to be a remarkable dining experience. The Berners Tavern Waldorf Salad was a standout starter, featuring a delightful combination of pickled walnuts, crispy brown anchovies crumble, sun-dried tomatoes, and a decadent blue cheese dressing that tantalised the palate.

 For the main course, I indulged in the succulent roasted lemon sole, expertly paired with royal blue prawns, crushed potato, parsley, and a subtle hint of lemon, all perfectly complemented by a side of roasted tender stem broccoli. To conclude this culinary journey on a high, I savoured a single shot of espresso, reveling in the lingering nuances of flavour that capped off an evening of unparalleled gastronomic delight at Berners Tavern.

VERDICT

Berners Tavern at The London Edition is the epitome of culinary excellence in London and each dish is a testament to culinary artistry. The ambience exudes elegance, making it perfect for any occasion. It is a must-visit destination for discerning diners seeking an unforgettable gastronomic journey in the heart of London.
