York & Albany, Camden Town

Another Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant. British cuisine in a semi fine dining setting, with reasonable price set menu.

The place is cosy and quite romantic with table candles in a dimly lit room. Our waitress was pretty, friendly, and happy to assist with dietary requirements & questions.

We opted for the £24 set menu: 3 courses + prosecco

  • Pressed lamb shoulder (tender lamb with crunchy hazelnut crumbs) served with greens & orange salad, and mint hollandaise
  • Crispy hen’s egg (pillowy egg white with smooth & creamy yolk – crispy on the outside) on a bed of salad with wild mushrooms and aromatic truffle pesto

  • Poached hake with spaghetti and shellfish butter. Nicely cooked pasta in buttery sauce and a beautiful piece of fish
  • Stuffed pork loin (incredibly tender, with sausage meat stuffing) with purple broccoli and a side of sage polenta

  • Cold rice pudding with cardamom and passion fruit sauce. Not the greatest dessert I’ve had.
  • Chocolate and Seville orange tart (rich, smooth, beautiful), served with biscuit ice cream (interesting)
