Why is the cuisine for Frontline described as Middle Eastern? It serves perfectly prepared, unpretentious seasonal British food along with decently priced fine wine (a rare find in London) and I highly recommend it.
Our starters were the best of British with some inventive twists. Both the potted duck with spiced pickled damsons and the rare wild pigeon breasts with Cumberland sauce were superb.
The Aussie waitress certainly knew her Alsace from her Nebbilio and did a masterful job of wine matching our meal. The NZ Matakana Pinot Gris cut through a buttery perfectly cooked plaice and a superb Lemelson Pinot Noir from Oregon set off a citrussy pork chop.
She told me that Malcolm Gluck of Superplonk fame is putting together a greatly extended wine list and that Frontline will never mark up a bottle by more than £10. I thought the food was good value but great wines at these prices is outstanding value.
