Dean Street Townhouse | Old School Comfort Food in Soho
An open-to-all offshoot of the burgeoning Soho House empire, Dean Street Townhouse proves that if Nick Jones thinks jam “Roly Poly” is back, then it’s back.
The contrast of the Georgian-style building in the heart of Soho, coolly decked out with dark woods and red leather seating, and food that sometimes feels like a cross between a 70s dinner party and good versions of the meals you probably got at school, is an amazing one.
You get all of the feeling of being somewhere a little hip – even sultry, with its dark decor, velvety armchairs next door and low lighting – without the frustration of nibbling away at unsatisfyingly artistic cuisine.
The food is real, and it’s good.
Breakfast, starting at 7am, goes from avocado on toast or a sausage sandwich to pancakes, syrup and bacon or a Full English. With a big brunch menu put on at weekends, including omelettes and grilled halibut, plus afternoon tea each day and a filling roast provided on Sundays, you have a lot of reasons to go.
Lunch and dinner options are particularly old school: mince and potatoes; fish and chips with mushy peas; rib eye steak or roast chicken; jam roly poly and apple crumble.
If the chef’s not somebody’s Mum, he ought to be.
NOTE: Dean Street Townhouse is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can find out more, or book a table, right HERE. It can get very busy at the bar, particularly on a Friday, so try to book a table in the dining room if possible.
