Launceston Place can pride itself with its association with the famous D&D restaurant group. Stylishly located on Launceston Place in Kensington, the restaurant offers traditional British cuisine with a distinctive twist added. The fabulous venue is a favourite with locals and was even frequented by the late Princess Diana.
The menu and interiors have altered since then but the high quality of the food and its mouth-watering presentation remains. For example, the tartare of smoked haddock with those zingy pickled cucumbers makes for a cool and satisfying starter. The lamb with curried cauliflower and garlic is hearty and succulent. Elsewhere, and specifically on Sundays, the Angus beef rump, fillet of plaice or the vegetarian option of goat's cheese ravioli all rank as highly popular and delicious dishes.
The wine list offers a salubrious selection of tastes which you can learn more about thanks to their intelligent wine sommelier, Agustin Trapero.
The interior of the Launceston Place is modern and sophisticated. The dining rooms and the lounge area are interconnecting and feature dark walls, cream banquettes and colourful cushions. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming which is supported by the friendly and attentive waiting staff. A chef’s table as well as a private dining room is available for private hire, as is the ability to host a wedding party. Simply visit the website for more details.
