A luxe pub at The Langham with a Michel Roux Jr menu.

Forget Filet Mignon. Michel Roux Jr has turned his hand to pub grub at The Wigmore, a self-styled ‘modern British tavern’ at The Langham Hotel said to mirror public houses of the past. It may sound contrived, but high-end design suits this former banking hall kitted out with globular lights, gloss paint and fabric-clad walls. Toto, we’re not in ’Spoons any more.

Despite Roux Jr’s billing, the place was packed to its poshed-up rafters with a crowd on the lash. Prices are refreshingly on a par with other pubs in the area, so punters were drinking £5 pints of cask and keg beer; look out for The Wigmore’s collab with Bermondsey’s Brew by Numbers. There’s wine on tap – including a minerally Bacchus from Sussex – and an enticing menu of London-born cocktail classics. Unfortunately my raspberry champagne cocktail was as flat as a pancake.

The same disappointment applied to bar snacks which just didn’t live up to the ‘MasterChef’ hype. The most exciting thing about the XXL cheese toastie was its size: over a foot long and ideal for sharing (instead of KP nuts). The masala scotch egg, with a deeply spiced dahl, was much more impressive. As it was plonked down on the table without cutlery or napkins, I finally felt like I was down the pub. Otherwise, make no mistake, this is a fancy bar. But one that seems a good fit for the area’s execs come 5pm.

 

The Wigmore says
A Modern British Tavern now open on London's Regent Street. With drinks from the team behind Artesian and food overseen by Michel Roux Jr, expect great wines on tap, cocktails, cask ales and craft beers.

Taking inspiration from the great British public houses of the past, The Wigmore is opening as a social drinking, eating and meeting place with a luxury accent and a continental feel reflecting the distinct history of the British tavern, where everyone is welcome.

When it comes to food, The Wigmore will offer a menu of hearty British fare with dishes that include a raised veal and ham pie, devilled lamb’s kidneys and paprika-glazed short rib with bone marrow crumb.
