A tiny, modern-European restaurant in the same building as champagne and hot dog spot Bubbledogs. Chef James Knappett, formerly head chef at Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley, is shaking the pans. 

The name is well-chosen. Up to 20 diners are sat at a table that surrounds an open kitchen - so no hiding places for Knappett and his team. You can even quiz them on what they're up to, should curiosity take hold. 

It's not for those in a hurry. The menu typically features between 12 and 14 courses, with dishes monikered simply by their primary ingredient - rest assured, though, that 'oyster', 'chicken' and 'duck' will be furnished with some very fancy bedfellows. The wine list benefits from all the bubbly on offer next door.

I was invited here as a guest of a group of people. I first thought what made them choose Bubbledog. Once I got over that confusion I was nothing but engrossed in the experience Kitchen Table delivers. Fun, relaxed, informative and lots of fun. James Knappett a genious at what he does. Plus the team were incredible. Have to go back ASAP.

With the waiting list for this hidden restaurant being months long, I have a top tip for you... Keep an eye on their Twitter page! We managed to grab two seats at the 19 seat table as they had a cancellation for the same night! You must be quick though. We arrived at Bubble Dogs and had a pre dinner glass of champagne and then we were leads through the black curtain to meet our fellow diners. The first thing you notice is a huge chalk board with the evenings menu and my mouth started to water. There were so many dishes and optional extras! We went all out and opted for the extra courses (why not?!). This place for me was fun and relaxed, the staff were all friendly and knowledgeable and made the evening! Every course was delicious with the seafood courses being my favourite. It is expensive here but you are paying for quality service, food and experience. Dinner is about 4 hours long! So make sure your not in a hurry. I would go back again when I next have a couple hundred to spend! It was a lovely treat and if you do want to book in advance check out the website!


Last night I had the privilege to experience the Kitchen Table. It is located at the back of Bubbledogs, a place that serves hot dogs paired with champagne (cool concept, I have yet to try the hot dogs), so when you walk in, you must know to mention you are here for Kitchen Table. I was meant to be surprised by the location, instead confused, I waited outside thinking my friend had stood me up. I came in 15 minutes late and the second sitting had already started, but they kindly saved my three missed courses and one of the chefs was kind enough to go through the dishes with me. The plates, the presentation and attention to details was so beautiful, not to mention the flavours bursting in your mouth like fireworks!

The dinner was said to have 14 courses, but all together we had 17. The names for each course was simple, yet the dishes were not. Each ingredient hand picked to complement the main ingredient perfectly, you could definitely taste each flavour. One of my favourite dishes was an artichoke pasta dish with creamy sauce and shaved black truffle. I find black truffle to be slightly over powering at times, but it wasn't in this case. Bravo to the chef James Knappett for his amazing ability to bring such balance to a dish. Next was a steamed turbot with different kinds of onions, I could swear I never had a better tasting onion in my entire life. James is a true master at what he does and he truly deserves his Michelin star! Extensive wine list, excellent teas brewed in house and so are their digestifs which you must try.

14 course dinner is at £88 per person- definite steal, considering he holds a star. Dinner for two with wine and digestif came to £250 with wine.

Favourite dinner out for ages. Creative delicious and fun.
