Gourmet Guide Description

Foxcroft is first choice for those seeking La Colombe quality in a casual setting with sophisticated elegance. Attention to detail and the quality of ingredients is impressive, a legacy of partners Glen Foxcroft Williams and Scot Kirton. Dishes demand applause, like the seared tuna tataki and the cured yellowtail, honey-glazed quail and venison tartare, or something that sounds simple like the goats cheese and fig dish. Regulars return for the turnip gratin, a simplistic dish of turnips, Parmesan, thyme and onion dressed up with four very different preparations of the turnip, utilising the whole plant. “Its homely, clean and comforting but surprisingly complex,” says chef Glen. In winter he favours cooking with kale, kohlrabi and nettles paired with rich fatty cuts of meat. Spring sees elderflowers and stone fruit, in summer mangoes, yellowtail and a heavy dose of soft herbs. “In autumn we preserve scary amounts of quinces and Jerusalem artichokes to use throughout the year.” He loves and relies on preservation techniques like charcuterie, pickling, fermentation as well as forgotten things like making mustards and vinegars from scratch. “I like to explore the range of flavours that can be achieved through salt, bacteria and time.” At Foxcroft they make a concerted effort to use local and ethically sourced produce in their internationally inspired dishes. Glens pastry expertise comes to the fore in the desserts, works of art from visual splendour to the last, lingering flavour. “My favourite feedback from a guest is when they say a dish took them back to a place or a memory, its a powerful thing.” Chef Glen Foxcroft Williams

    Good food and nice setting...but the attitude is not right. There is a sense that as a guest you are just entitled to worship the kitchen and their service but not to enjoy your evening. Because one of our guest chose the vegetarian menu we had to take a shortened menu because otherwise this creates too much havoc for the chef...and they did not want to put a candle on the dessert of my daughter because they just don’t do that...and all the other small details. What is this with restaurants that forget that they exist for the clients? If you think that you are too good for your clients may be it is time to do something else...
