Hawthorn (pictured) is on the site of what was Glasshouse in Kew. There is some continuity in staff and the restaurant delivered a very good and fairly priced meal. The meal included a cleverly judged dressing for sashimi trout, as well as good poussin and a well made rhubarb souffle. I hope that this place will do well.

The Harwood Arms is the only Michelin starred pub in London and continues to specialise in game, some of it shot personally by its owner Mike Robinson. The venison Scotch egg here is iconic, and at this latest meal I also enjoyed pate en croute and venison Wellington. The Harwood Arms also has an excellent wine list, and the food was on form in the capable hands of its new chef.
