Review 2016/17

The sparkling list is small but bedecked with gems and a cracking glass selection kicks off proceedings. Expect to see imaginative choices, such as Blaufränkisch from Moric, Oregon Pinot Noir from J Christopher in Dundee Hills and Müller-Thurgau from Castel Juval in Alto Adige. Good sparkling selections include Agrapart Champagne and Gusbourne from Kent. Largely European in focus, Italy and France receive the most attention, with a smattering from lesser-known regions around the world, including Cyprus.The sweet wine list is particularly sharp, a highlight being Rasteau Grenat from Domaine du Trapadis in the Rhône.

Spring is led by chef Skye Gyngell, formerly head chef at the Michelin-starred Petersham Nurseries. The restaurant itself is housed in a restored 19th-century drawing room at Somerset House, that had previously been closed to the public for 150 years.
