Quality, flavour and creativity are just three words to describe Pascal Aussignac’s Michelin-starred temple to the gastronomy of Aussignac's native Gascony where food and wine have a unique synchronicity.

Located next to Smithfield market near Farringdon, Barbican and St Paul's, Club Gascon boasts a stunning menu with dishes that focus on the very finest ingredients from the South West of France.

In the elegant yet relaxed dining room, diners are advised to choose three or four dishes from the superb à la carte menu or to be guided by the chef 's selection menu which continues to excite and delight.

The Wine Cellar is as fascinating as it is extensive, composed of over four hundred varieties of wine from the South of France.

Guest can enjoy Cocktails & Tapas in the freshly opened " Le Bar" lounge area locatednext door of the restaurant

Very friendly staff with a great vibe. Amazing food and - while in the upper range - good value for money. In the beginning, I felt we got interrupted mid-conversation a few times by waiters presenting some nibbles - when you sit down and try to have a conversation and every 2 minutes someone approaches the table and starts talking that can be slightly disruptive. Apart from that it was a great experience and I would come again. Everyone was really friendly and helpful.

It's the second time that we dine in this restaurant and we enjoyed the second time as much as the first one! The first time we thought that the vegetarian dishes were particularly original and noteworthy so this time we went indeed for the vegetarian menu. It was excellent, although we missed the spaghetti potatoes we had last time (please bring them back! ;) We had the initial amuse bouche and other small free dishes that make even more pleasant to be there. A small note is that the waiter swapped our dishes but otherwise the service was impeccable. The chef even accommodated a change of dishes we requested.

Never cheap but good for what it is. Every course was great. Good to see the duck egg back in its nest with black truffle. Veggie tasting menu is outstanding whilst the other menu had an Iberico main dish that was apparently close to perfection. Service impeccable. I still (really) don’t like the mini sinks beneath a shelf in loos that are a nightmare to use but for this good food and service you can forgive that.

Club Gascon has an amazing French menu! We made a last minute booking and were very pleased with our seating allocation. Some of the tables towards the back feel a little cramped, but the food and drinks should make up for this ;-)

Came back after a couple of years and another outstanding meal. Come hungry, 4 canapes, 2 extra courses, 7 courses from the menu. Oh and the wine... I come just for the wines from the South West you don't see elsewhere. Everything was a joy from the crisp truffle to the crispy pork. The Cassoulet bonbon was a delight, all the taste in asingle bite. I always find this place a joy. Excellent service too!

We had the five course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fantastic! The choice of wines fitted perfectly with the dishes. The foie gras brule was exceptional, my second favourite was the
john dori with seaweed variation and kohlrabi - really good!
Staff was very friendly and professional, every wine was explained in detail. We will definitely come back!

The food is excellent and the service impeccable, vale not so sure it was £400 for two. I had the 7 course tasting+ wine my wife just the tasting and one glass of wine. Plus a couple of cocktails to start. Probably 7 glass of wine of a person would be too much but we shared.

I would go again.

Just off of Smithfield Market, Club Gascon is a peaceful haven from the bustle outside offering a delicious bite of France with stunning, delicate and flavourful dishes. Not afraid to take risks, some of the unexpectedly pleasing dishes included a Blue cheese cheesecake and Fired cuttlefish with squid ink. Both superb. Paired with friendly, attentive service and you've got a great recipe for a top tier working lunch or special celebratory dinner.

A gem even though it is far from central london and
requires a trek !
Will make a effort again soon however may be not too soon
just for the effort required !
A restaurant of this quality would be throughly booked throughout if it was more central.

We had to wait half an hour for the fourth serving in our tasting menu. It was almost cold. We received a deduction in our bill when we complained. But we would rather have paid full price for a better experience.

Very friendly and attentive staff.

We really enjoyed the food that was served in the most and the atmosphere was beautiful.

Only a partial let down because the bathroom was tiny and there were a couple dishes that we didn’t appreciate as much.

Generally a beautiful experience. We would recommend

Absolutely top class. Everything from the welcome onwards, every detail was spot on. This is a very well run place, and the food was incredible. We opted for a tasting menu paired with wine, everything was well explained and every wine matched the taste profile of the food superbly. Loved it!

We made our reservation with Club Gascon through OpenTable over a month in advance. I also spoke to the restaurant personally by phone. We gave them our credit card information, because they said that if we did not show up, there would be a £40 charge per person. We received message from OpenTable 24 hours advance to ask if we were still coming. We answered that we were. When we arrived, Club Gascon was closed for a bank holiday. We spent £25 to get there in a taxi and then £25 to get back to our hotel. We were not happy.

We came to Club Gascon for the first time for our anniversary and had a wonderful evening. Everything was perfect, from the exquisite food - a great mix of tradition and experimental creativity- to the diligent and discreet service and the romantic, cosy atmosphere of the restaurant. We must commend the sommelier especially. She was fun, very knowledgable and gave us great guidance. We were so happy we followed her recommendation! Altogether a fantastic experience. Congratulations!

Even though the food was really creative and the service excellent there were several mistakes in what we tasted. We had the 5 dish menu and what stood out as a really poor plate was the lamb which was very chewy and the croquette extremely salty.
