The Thomas Cubitt, based in between Sloane Square and Victoria Stations, is named after the famous Belgravia Architect and is one of the four Cubitt House Group’s locally run gastro pubs which are famous of their seasonal dining room menus using and their vibrant pub atmosphere.
We had heard great things and as we were working in the area we decided to try it out!
It was a Thursday evening and the pub downstairs was packed with people chatting away excitedly to friends and colleagues. We walked through and went upstairs into the dining room where we were seated at our table.
The dining room was dimly lit and cozy. The menu had an emphasis on British produce and is it ever changing based on what is in season. Our waiter was fabulous. He talked us through the menu with a sense of passion (which I personally love in a restaurant) and he even recommended a wine for us that would go well with all of our dishes.
I ordered the pan fried seabass, Jack had the steak and Sandra adventurously ordered the pigeon and we shared some vegetables and fries between us.
The meat and fish were perfectly cooked and they each came with their own quirkiness which made the dish exciting and definitely not your usual boring-bog-standard-pub-grub.
We ended the meal with a cheese board to share which we were talked through by our waiter and we nibbled on this as we finished the rest of our wine.
We had a really great experience all around – A must try if you are in the area.
