Wellbourne Shepherd’s Bush

Wellbourne Brasserie in White City’s newly revamped television centre is the second outpost from a well regarded Bristol restaurant. It looks beautiful inside, all big glass windows and beige and navy furnishings and the menu is promising but we left feeling a little deflated.

The restaurant were quite excited to have us, as it was their first opportunity to test out their new, bolt to the table style highchair and they were very accommodating throughout our meal. The meal started strongly too, with the bite sized vol au vents a lovely treat. Our starters were similarly enjoyable but our mains were a little over cooked, over salted and the confit duck overwhelmed by its bed of lentils. The desserts were only passable.

Considering that West London is inhabited by a lot of families, I was surprised to see that there wasn’t a baby change unit in their accessible loo. They had room for it, it just wasn’t there, meaning I had to change Max on the floor and to be honest, I’m too old for that amount of bending.

What’s good? The vol au vents. The lyonnaise salad. The cocktails.

Kid friendly? Fairly.
