Thomas Cubitt Restaurant Review: The Thomas Cubitt is spacious and gracious with a ground floor bar packing in the locals for drinks and nibbles, and an elegant restaurant upstairs. The cooking is generally very good indeed, such as oysters (this part of London is real oysters and Champagne country) and game terrine with spiced bread and pear and ginger chutney. Mains include fish of the day and staples of modern British cooking like slow-cooked beef pie with baby shallots, lardons and mushrooms, and hot smoked duck breast with parsnips, sweet potato and cherry jus. Cheeses --- all British --- are well chosen and kept; desserts might include Earl Grey crème brûlée with cinnamon donuts. The wine list is imaginative and wide-ranging, particularly strong on French wines. Expect the place to be crowded at all times.
