London Stock

For all the allure of the bustling restaurant scene in Central London…

…sometimes it’s good to take stock of the little neighbourhood gems right on your doorstep.

And that just became a lot easier for the residents of Wandsworth, who are now proudly rubbing shoulders with London Stock – a relaxed but refined Modern British restaurant.

London Stock Restaurant

It’s tucked away in Ram Quarter, the new development on the site of the former Young’s brewery (which has been brewing beer here for nearly 500 years). As a result, the interiors are a cosy blend of the industrial – exposed brick walls, cast iron girders – and the comfortable, with tangerine velvet chairs, parquet floors and green herringbone tiles lit by soft, vintage globe lighting.

The chef heading up the kitchen is one Sebastian Rast, a Cordon Bleu graduate who’s come fresh from the kitchens at Michelin-starred HIDE. Those influences are clear in the delicate, attentive treatment of simple British ingredients combined with the application of globe-trotting cooking techniques.

The tasting menu (priced at £75 for 8 courses) changes regularly, but you can expect dishes along the lines of smoked burrata with pistachio & lovage; tender confit salmon with fennel and Granny Smith apples; and red mullet bouillabaisse with black garlic. It all culminates in a pair of glorious desserts – coconut with mango, lime and pineapple; and an exemplary tarte tatin with walnut and marigold. It’s all supremely delicious. There’s an all-veggie tasting menu available, too, as well as the option to order à la carte. And on Sundays, London Stock serves what is easily one of the best Sunday roasts in the area: beef Wellington preceded by chicken liver parfait with port jelly, and followed by a luxurious sticky toffee pudding.

Signature cocktails are shaken up at the bar up front, including the Sloe Start with sloe gin, banana and prosecco; and the Cold Fashioned, mingling bourbon with tawny port and maple syrup. There’s also a lengthy wine list to go with it all, including Hungarian wines made with noble rot – plump for the pairing if you want to avoid decision-making. Accompanied with impeccable service – friendly and attentive without being overbearing – London Stock is a spot that delivers the whole package in one neat little parcel.

Put simply: this stock’s going up.

 

NOTE: London Stock is open Wednesday – Saturday. You can book a table and find out more HERE.
