Brunswick House

Vauxhall roundabout has a strange no-mans-land feel to it – where tube, train and bus stations meet and hi-rise modern buildings block the Thames from view – but then there’s Lassco’s, a stunning Georgian home that houses thousands of ‘architectural antiques, salvage and curiosities’ for sale. And inside Lassco’s itself is another hidden gem – Brunswick House – a restaurant and bar where the interiors change each day, depending on what has been sold by the landlords.

Jackson and Frank Boxer opened Brunswick House Café 3 years ago, now the ‘café’ bit has gone and they serve some seriously good, fresh English food. Enjoy a homemade lemonade, grapefruit fizz or virgin Bloody Mary in the courtyard before a lunch of cuttlefish, fennel & new potatoes, or pork and duck terrine, or quail, butterbeans and new season onions. Lunch is a bargain – 2-courses for £16.80 and 3-courses for £19.80, Monday to Friday.

In the evening Brunswick House steps up a notch, perfect for a date or night out with group of friends. We particularly like the cocktails – Sours, Brunswick Martini, The Brunswick Pimms, Negronis – and it has a great wine list too, with wines by the glass, carafe and bottle.  All in all, it adds up to one of our favourite dining spots of the moment.  See you there!
