BLACK TRUMPET: An Experience to Savour

The Editors
Written by The Editors

For over 18 years Black Trumpet has been a culinary destination in the heart of Downtown London’s Richmond Row. The warmth and charm extends from the architecture to the impeccable world-inspired cuisine, wine list and the polished attentive service. 

Chef Scott Wesseling

The Scene

Black Trumpet has a stunning and lush ambience, with eight unique richly detailed and flexible dining areas for entertaining an intimate group or hosting a sit-down reception. In the warm weather months, the beautifully appointed and private gardens create a peaceful setting and prestigious spot for alfresco dining and cocktails. This secluded haven is a hidden jewel, one of the city’s best-kept secrets.

Menu Highlights

Chef Scott Wesseling and Sous Chef Oliver Thomas have a contemporary take on updated comfort foods, plant-based options and traditional recipes, and support and seek out local providers. The menu offers something to appeal to everyone’s tastes or dietary needs. A new Vegan Menu offers delicious options, such as the BT Buddha Bowl, Avocado Tempura with chili lime aioli, or Cabbage Rolls. 

At lunch, treat yourself to Cornish Hen, Ontario Lamb, or one of the many offerings from The Big Green Egg, such as Pork Belly Burnt End Bao Buns, Brisket, or Lamb Shank Shawarma.

Berbere Spiced Tuna, olive and citrus Israeli cous cous, kelp salad and wasabi crèma;
