A regular haunt of the Fatty Fatty Bum Bums, this one-star-staple is always a crowd pleaser. On this occasion, our crowd were a couple of guests - one of whom, our Australian friend, had never experienced a michelin star before, so we were hopeful of a great evening. A great evening indeed was had - and the food was no... More

I've eaten at La Trompette twice recently. On both occasions the experience was flawless and thoroughly enjoyable. The staff are courteous, considerate and professional. This is a restaurant where, at tables laid with crisp white tablecloths, you can actually carry on a conversation with your companions without the need to shout or repeat what you've said. Delicious amuse-gueules were followed... More

We took my parents out for a treat and were not disappointed. Exceptional food and a superb wine list; this is a restaurant of the highest calibre. Starters were excellent before mum sent her main course back after finding a small thread in it. The response could not have been better with a small starter brought immediately as the rest... More

Starters of scallops with pumpkin, foie gras and chicken wings deboned in a macaroni were super; explosions of taste and a variety of textures. Mains of suckling pig and loin of hare were exceptionally good. The pig had a lovely crispy skin, melting meat and served with supreme mashed potato. The hare was gamey and tender in a lovely sauce... More

La Trompette is a wonderful restaurant serving french style food using beautiful seasonal ingredients. Having eaten at a fair few michelin starred establishments in London for double the price, I was intrigued to see how the level & service would match up. It exceeded my expectations, the service was professional but not stuffy, wine was topped up steadily and we... More

I have been fortunate enough to have eaten here many times, the last visit being the 3/1/15. The food is always fantastic, rich and satisfying, I had the suckling pig and the crackling, which ordinarily I’m not a fan of was simply sublime! The staff are always charming and accommodating – can’t wait to back.

The "Trompette" in Hammersmith is a favourite place of our British friends, who have been pampered by French cuisine. So we went there. Nice place, attentive service by French speaking personnel, well prepared French-style food, but now the disappoinrtment. At such "posh places" I expect - at least on the Continent - that the waiter exchanges the "normal cutlery" when... More

A quiet lunchtime meal with family (including small people), attentive and friendly service from a slick symphony of staff and excellent food. Possibly the dessert (Creme Fraiche tart with tangerine, date accompaniments) was the best of 3 courses. A helpful and interested sommellier and a very charming and witty 'cheese waiter'

visited la trompette for a post christmas family get together. had tried to book one or two other big name london restaurants but they were either fully booked or shut over the christmas period. was aware that La trompette had a very good reputation and decided it could be worth the trip out to Chiswick. And it definitely was. There... More
