Best for…any time of day: 108 Brasserie

This modern British Marylebone brassiere has been going for years, though a new head chef has given foodies another reason to visit. Serving brunch, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea, it’s a great place to keep up your sleeve when relatives are in town.

Scarlet red seating, antique mirrors, parquet flooring and fresh blooms create a romantic dining space that oozes glamour.

The menu is simple and hearty, and celebrates the best British dishes made with the finest ingredients. The extensive menu has something for everyone, with no-fuss options like shepherd’s pie and fish and chips, as well as grilled steak and seafood, superfood salads and daily specials.

We started with some homemade Guinness bread which was so tasty that we ordered seconds. Next came a Balmoral Estate venison carpaccio, with dollops of creamy horseradish and fiery rocket. A main of grilled Dover sole didn’t disappoint, flaking away at the fork. For dessert, the homemade ice creams were seriously moreish as was the lemon tart, with its light pastry and tangy lemon curd filling.

The well-stocked wine list includes over 40 bins and plenty of options by the glass. We kicked-off with a G&T featuring the restaurant’s bespoke Marylebone Gin. This bittersweet gin is distilled in the Brasserie in a copper pot – it’s silky smooth, floral and far too easy to drink. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
