Tuttons lies on the bustling corner of Covent Garden piazza, overlooking one of the most popular late night areas of London. We visit to sample the restaurant and to report on the private dining rooms. Will Tuttons offer more than being just a touristy Dinner hot spot? Without sounding too surprised, Private Dining London can reveal all about our visit…
The Vaults are two private dining rooms that can be found underneath the main restaurant and they offer space for two different sized groups. One private dining room takes up to 18 guests and for parties with a few more guests, the larger Vault can host up to 28 guests. From their names, we expected the rooms to feel quite imposing but in fact, although there is no natural light, the spaces feel quite open due to the clever use of mirrors, bowed ceilings, light interiors and air conditioning. The rooms are perfect for celebrations looking for a special setting and an ease of location. Their three course dinner menus start at £35.00 and they are also open to negotiation if you would like a bespoke menu tailored to your guests. Even better about Tuttons is that they offer drinks package deals if you’re looking for something all inclusive. It’s no surprise that the restaurant is under the same ownership as bar chain Dirty Martini.
We visit on one of the hottest days of 2017 so far and enjoy being seated by the window watching the world go by. Our Blacksticks Farmhouse Cheese Salad is light and the cheese is strong, which is perfectly sweetened by the apricots and almonds. The Pork Belly is the opposite; rich and filling which is perfect for the bigger appetites at the table. The daily special of Banoffee Trifle with Honeycomb is a welcome treat and you cannot beat the classic ice cream duo to follow the pork main course.
If you’re looking for a venue that offers good value, classic style and a central location, Tuttons is a great choice. Their staff are welcoming, the food will impress your guests and the private dining rooms are well styled. Tuttons, 11-12 Russell Street, London, WC2B 5HZ
