A foodie favourite for modern British

€ € €BritishInformalModernSet Menu

Lyle's was one the first restaurants we put into the London restaurant guide back in July 2015. Since then it has been awarded a Michelin star, reward for hard work and their innovative take on modern British dining. Here's our original review: We love set menus. Not those stuffy tasting menus you get in some restaurants where you must direct the Hubble space telescope onto your plate to see what you're eating. We mean take a seat and let the chef choose what's in season and present the best of these ingredients in three or four plates of satisfyingly good food. Lyle's dinner menu is just that - really good, and we mean really really good, food. You'll feel like the best modern British chef just invited you over to his place for dinner. But if you insist on choosing for yourself then come for the a la carte menu at lunch when things a little more flexible.

The evening menu is a set menu with seasonal modern British food, we think the lunch ala carte menu is a better option as the same dinner dishes are offered during the day plus a few others. Share a few plates over a long lunch.
