    Berners Tavern can be found inside the new Edition Hotel in Fitzrovia. Recently opened after an extensive refurbishment, this restaurant is certainly now something to behold.

    The restaurant itself is an incredibly grand, open-plan room that retains its period features whilst being brought bang up to date. Ornate carved ceilings overlook a stylist restaurant whose walls are adorned with large painting aside large painting all encased in ornamental picture frames. This restaurant holds a special atmosphere.

    We started our evening with a few pre-dinner cocktails including the ‘Dill or no Dill’ (a refreshing blend gin based cocktail), a ‘Vintage Vesper’ (vodka and gin with a lemon twist), ‘Mead Myself and Aye’ (a cocktail made with Somerset cider brandy) and a ‘Thyme Traveller’ (a tequila, apple and vanilla blend).

    “This restaurant holds a special atmosphere.”

    We were advised to try the wine pairing options with our meal, so we decided to give it a go. The first of our starters, the beetroot cured Loch Duart salmon was paired with a Vin de Corse Calvi, “Clos de Culombu” from Vermentino, Corsica. The second starter, the crispy Romney lamb breast was served with a beautiful French Pinot Noir.

    We both opted for steak as a main course – one fillet with peppercorn sauce and a rib eye – the steaks were paired with a Californian Central Coast Syrah, Qupe. As side dishes, we chose creamed potato and the smashed swede with ginger.

    For dessert, we chose the chocolate rice pudding – paired with a French Domaine du Trapadis Rasteau Vin Doux, Naturel Rouge, Rhone – and the toasted coconut with pineapple and sorbet - which was paired with the Moscato d’Asti piemonte from Italy.

    The food was beautiful, as was the wine, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The only negative could be that the service was a little too speedy - we prefer to have a bit of a breather between ordering and our starter arriving - but that aside, it was a great experience that comes highly recommended by us.
