RA Venues teamed up with award-winning chef Bryn Williams to open a brand new restaurant at Somerset House, London’s working arts and creative centre.
The team worked closely with the celebrated Welsh chef to launch a stylish restaurant that featured Bryn’s creative menu philosophy and commitment to serving fresh, locally sourced produce with a strong focus on fruit and vegetables.
The high-profile restaurant and is located on the south wing of the building and serve as a welcome hub for Somerset House residents and visitors alike. The space is also home to the only draught beer bar on the premises, with overhead copper casks and a bar front made from Welsh slate.
A modern dining experience
The creative community is at the venue’s core, with a relaxed and contemporary environment that reflects both the food and restaurant layout. The interior design unites the building’s naval history and Georgian architecture with Williams’ Welsh roots.
The menu focusses on sustainability, seasonality and provenance with tasty small plates such as rainbow carrot and pickled mooli alongside seasonal mains such as roast young broccoli, olive tapenade, sage beignet and scorched Cornish mackerel.
