Bibendum Restaurant Review: The light, airy first-floor dining room, with its stained-glass windows featuring Monsieur Bibendum, remains one of London’s most enjoyable settings, while the cooking is under the guiding hand of Matthew Harris. Dishes change daily on the lunch menu and it is no idle boast that they contain the freshest seasonal ingredients. Go for the likes of fish soup with rouille or top pata negra Ibérico ham; move on to pork with sautéed morels, broad beans and peas, or monkfish with crushed Jersey Royals and warm morel vinaigrette topped with pancetta. And for the faithful, there’s always the classic roast chicken with tarragon. Desserts might include an apple tart or pithiviers au chocolat. The wine list is notable to match the experience. Set 2-course lunch Mon.-Fri. £26.50, 3 courses £30, Sat. lunch 3 courses £30, Sun. lunch 3 courses £32.50. Sun. supper menu £29.50.
