The Welsh Rarebit was really good as was the risotto. The other items were okay. Service was okay but nothing special. I thought the interior would be a bit nicer. It looked a bit old considering the rest of this building looks a lot nicer.
Welsh Rarebit Fortnum’s famous rarebit with herbed tomato & back bacon £9.00 / £15.00
Heritage Tomatoes, Sea Salt & Olive Oil £4.00
Poached Atlantic Char Cucumber salad, Keta caviar & poached egg £16.00
Butternut Squash Risotto £12.00
I discovered this place through a friend, who recommended it as a relaxed, and different place to have lunch in Mayfair.
You don’t initially think of eating IN Fortum & Mason’s – but its all the more interesting you that.
The food was high quality and fresh, but the service has been a little inattentive on the two occasions I have been.
Credit crunch – what credit crunch? The unabashedly traditional Fountain Restaurant at Fortnum & Mason has received a recent makeover, but don’t imagine it has come over all modernistic.
“We kindly request that both sexes lean more towards elegance,” reads the dress code and that slightly Violet Bucket/Bouquet tone permeates the place.
I was taken there as the (business) guest of a man who makes me look sprightly (takes some doing) and both of us had the pleasant experience of feeling foolishly young for a change.
A Caesar Salad during Sunday Brunch will set you back 15 quid and a cup of tea will cost you a fiver. If you can afford to fork out a three-figure bill to have a bit of a giggle at maiden aunts and aging lotharios struggling to rescue their gnashers from the sirloin steak, then go for it.
