Looking around the room one could have been forgiven for thinking 1960’s New York, with wooden floors and panelled ceilings, upholstered dining chairs, and pristine white table cloths, interspersed with red leather oyster seating booths. The natural setting was complimented with a gentle evening lighting and the waiters were literally dancing around the candle lit tables in eager attendance. The wine was delicious and certainly complimented the Exmoor dry aged sirloin steak and the two Buccleuch Aberdeen Angus rib eye steaks all served with tomato, Portobello mushroom and chips.  Complimented with Creamed Horseradish and Purple Mustard jus and with added portions of Dauphinoise potatoes, Spinach with shallots and French beans this was a hearty feast for even the famished.

As our conversation moved from topical to personal we relaxed and embraced the casual ambience of The Rib Room, enjoying its intimate seating arrangement and soft background music which could easily serve purpose for a more romantic rendezvous.  And if “deserts be the food of love” then unquestionably our hearts were about to be stolen by the following selection.  Toffee Banana Pudding, Bread & Butter Pudding and a Passion Fruit Sorbet all preceded by a complimentary pre-dessert shot of Lemon Mouse with a Blackberry Coulee.

This gastronomic indulgence was by far one of the most memorable for quite sometime and as we continued to chat, laugh and loosen our clothing, the fresh Mint Tea, coffee and petit fours were served.  Certainly we were in no rush to move from the table and our hosts gave every impression that they too were keen to keep us there which is always a welcome approach.

So when the three of us finally said our goodbyes and left The Rib Room to make our way home, it was deicided that perhaps the very best way to finish off this extremely enjoyable evening would be to take a stroll and assist our bodies to gently recover from the sheer indulgence that we had just undertaken.  As we chatted some more from Knightsbridge to Fitzrovia, we all agreed that yes we would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and yes, we would definitely be returning soon.  Perhaps we might try the traditional Sunday Roast next time round?
