The Editors
Written by The Editors

For over 17 years Black Trumpet has been a culinary destination in the heart of Downtown London on Richmond Row. The warmth and charm transcend from the architecture to the impeccable world-inspired cuisine, wine list and the polished and attentive service. There are eight unique and flexible dining areas for entertaining an intimate group or hosting a sit-down reception. The rooms are richly detailed and exquisitely constructed.

The Scene

Black Trumpet has a stunning and lush ambience with a culinary team devoted to a global point of view. In the warm weather months, the beautifully appointed and private gardens create a peaceful setting and prestige spot for alfresco dining and cocktails. This secluded haven is a hidden jewel, seating 60, and remains one of the city’s best-kept secrets.

Menu Highlights

Chef Scott Wesseling and his Sous Chefs Kristen Delaurier and Oliver Thomas have a contemporary take on updated comfort foods, plant-based options and traditional recipes. Chef and the culinary team continue to support and seek out local providers, creating exceptional tastes and preparations that can be unforgettable. The menu offers well-balanced choices with contrasting flavours, with something to appeal to everyone’s tastes or dietary needs. A new Vegan Menu offers delicious options, such as the BT Buddha Bowl, Smoked Jackfruit Tacos or Avocado Tempura with a chili lime aioli.
The lunch menu offers artful cuisine and is the perfect combination of globally-inspired signature dishes with influences and inspiration from various cultures. Treat yourself to Roasted Duck Breast, Cornish Hen, or feed your soul with one of the many offerings from the Big Green Egg, such as Gochujang Beef Short Ribs, Brisket, or Cochinita Pibil.
