Bush Hill Dining Hall is a delightful new eatery that’s opened up in Shepherd’s Bush, they deliver something that is completely lacking in the area, a breath of fresh air, a new offering to the palate.
The interior is clean and fun with banquette seating, lush red leather diner style booths and quintessential dual tone tile floor. Natural light streams through the large front windows and a beautifully exposed lighting rig casts soft, ambient light over the bar.
The feel of the place itself is something quite spectacular, it’s a collision of two worlds, two feelings, and they have managed to pull it off with exceptional grace. It feels remarkably like the most comfortable neighbourhood diner meets the refined elegance of yesteryear.
The menu is daring and experimental, a little kooky but executed incredibly well. Twists and variations on traditional favourites and an ever changing and enticing seasonal menu ensures both freshness and originality – The Bloody Mary Mussels and Beetroot and Vodka Salmon Gravadlax as starters are a piquant example.
The wholesome, heartiness of contemporary British cuisine is reflected in the mains. Choice offerings like Stuffed Courgette Flowers or the Tuna Steak and Puy Lentils with Wild Garlic are highly recommended.
Everything is refined from the over-sized champagne coupettes to the staff and their sensational service. It’s these little attentions to detail that make this place a magical experience in its own right.
I dare say it’s not often that one is presented with an overall dining experience that leaves little, nay, nothing, to be desired
I highly recommend having a look, a sip, a tipple and a nibble.
