Description: 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. The new appearance has not changed the focus of the restaurant. The aim is as it always has been, to give all our guests the best possible dining experience from start to finish.

La Trompette is one of those places you don't want to share with the general public because you are afraid that you might not be able to get a table next time you can afford to eat there. It's not a cheap treat but it is very special. The menu is inspired. Scallops to die for. Beef cheeks as tender... More

The food was exceptional.. A small mistake was made with our order which the waiter made up for by bringing us an extra dish for free. I always feel that it's the way that a restaurant deals with any issues or mistakes show it's true colours. We felt really looked after and had a great time. Highly recommended

On a Monday evening one would not have expected such a good atmosphere. The ambience was perfect and the food easily matched this high standard. The chef's "complimentary" appetiser was superb and this set the pace for the next two courses. We shared a cote du boeuf - perfectly cooked. The wine list is impressive but we sought the advice...

Highly accomplished cooking at reasonable prices. The gougeres to start were actually not the best I have had, recently at Gordon Ramsay they were a clear cut above. They were slightly dry, and I like it when there is some gooey oozy cheese in the middle. The starter, main and dessert were all superb. The starter of chicken wings with... More

We ate here last night and was not disappointed. We had previously been to Chez Bruce and wondered if it would be as good and definitely it was! The restaurant was busy but that didn't detract from attentive but unobtrusive friendly service. I had the Jerusalem artichoke soup which had a mini scotch egg and sausage roll on the side... More

It presents itself very well from the first approach, service and food are just great. Difficult to book, many times didn't have a table.

La trompette never disappoints on the food. Excellent food and the cheese board is always exceptional. This is my fourth visit ,on this occasion the slowness of the food let down La Trompette. It was an hour before ewe ate our first course and we were constantly having our wine glasses refilled despite explaining that we would serve ourselves. Despite... More

This restaurant never disappoints. The service, the food and the wine list are unrivalled in Chiswick. I never had a course less than perfect and tonight wasn't any different. Amazing private dining area if you want to have some privacy. Outstanding in every way
