London South West, UK - Truly reclaimed or not, the salvaged aesthetic is popular to create a welcoming environment and feels as though it is decorating most new dining establishments. So when a real architectural salvage showroom has a restaurant on the premises, the marriage feels effortless. Incidentally the dining room has hosted many a wedding reception with a romantic canopy of mismatched chandeliers to rival any marquee. After the roadshow to get to the roundabout in Vauxhall where Brunswick House sits, boy has one worked-up an appetite for antiques, but the beetroot, watermelon, stawley, sorrel and mint starter had me equally salivating. The set lunch menu at £16 for two courses and £19 for three is small but perfectly formed with fish, meat and veggies. Homemade ice-cream, Lincolnshire cheese or in my case the chocolate cremeaux, cumin and caramel was enough to ensure I did not stop at two courses.
Console yourself with the fact you will want to climb the stairs all the way to the top of the 18th-century house to explore the treasures afterwards. Great for art and bigger pieces, be sure not to miss the bar in the basement.
The introduction of food transformed Britain's pubs from drinking dens to a staple of community culture. Not to imply that all patrons will leave with more than beautiful things inside their bellies, but Brunswick House is definitely catering to a palatable salvage experience.
