The Alfred Tennyson
The Alfred Tennyson was, until August 2015, called The Pantechnicon Rooms. The review below refers to the venue under this name. Time Out food and drink editors. This grand old spot was once a repository for works of art, stored in a high-ceilinged space behind Doric columns. Faithfully restored, it’s now flooded with natural light and lined with oak tables and leather chairs – a place for art dealers in smart, stripy shirts to entertain and network over braised pork belly or saddle of Devon lamb. There’s also an upstairs dining room with a slightly more contemporary feel. The ground-floor area is bookended by a bar, where Adnams is the standout beer. A 15-strong cocktail list includes a Moscow Mule with Belvedere vodka, while the wine list covers most bases, beginning with a Hungarian pinot grigio and a Languedoc merlot.
