La Trompette opened in 2001 and serves some of the best food in London but without the formality or prices associated with the capital’s top end establishments.We closed at the beginning of 2013 for a complete refurbishment, and have expanded to include a brand new kitchen, private dining and improved customer facilities.

' Friendly Service Lovely Food'

We were taken here for dinner, a busy Saturday night, food was excellent, starters possibly a little limited but overall an interesting menu. Staff understand service and deliver with confidence. The pork main course was particularly good. Atmosphere was buzzy and the decor clean and modern. I want... read more

Took my girlfriend here for a birthday meal last month after reading so many excellent reviews about the place. We were immediately impressed by the welcome and decor and clearly this place took pride in their reputation. The service was initially very solid and our food was delivered promptly and knowledgeably and all of the courses were incredibly tasty. There... More

2nd visit and equally satisfied. The 3 course set menu offers a good choice on each course, adding to the amuse Bouche and the chocolate caramel truffle at the end. The menu changes daily. I don't normally choose a soup but ordered an artichoke with venison and a venison scotch egg. VG. The roast foie gras was superb. Both the... More

Food excellent but service Fawltyesque. The maitre d' is a piece of work, the night we were there he was shouting at servers and when three of our party ordered cheese he came with the board and told us to be 'quiet and listen as he didn't like to repeat himself'. He is a bit puffed up but we did... More

we returned to La Trompette after a disappointing visit a few years ago and were so glad we did! Firstly, seeing Patra ( previously maitre d' at the Glasshouse in Kew) was an added bonus. The restaurant has been extended and refurbished and is now a warm and spacious room. However, the food is the star. Every course delivered and... More

A restaurant that's hard to beat. Excellent food and enviable wine list. You are made to feel welcome, from the minute you arrive. Price reflects the quality.

This is about the fifth time I have visited this restaurant, and it has never disappointed. I love the staff: genuinely friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and never pompous or stuffy. The Sommelier was brilliant. He seemed really young, but there was no mistaking his knowledge. The wines he chose for my budget really were outstanding. We had a fantastic red from... More

We visited La Trompette on Friday Evening to celebrate a family birthday and from beginning to end this was a sublime experience. The staff were attentive without being overbearing the food as mentioned in other reviews was better than some Michelin starred restaurants we've eaten in. The cote de boeuf that I shared with my son was the best I've... More
