La Trompette is owned by Nigel Platts-Martin and Bruce Poole, the partnership behind Chez Bruce in Wandsworth and The Glasshouse in Kew. It therefore serves some of the best food in London but without the formality or prices associated with the capital's top end establishments.The comfortable and stylish dining room is a vibrant, busy and friendly place to be with service that is highly professional yet relaxed and informal.

From the outset La Trompette has been showered with accolades, a reflection of the love, care and energy that is invested in the restaurant by the dedicated team behind it. La Trompette was awarded a Michelin star in 2008.

My friend and I visited La Trompette for the first time recently. It was superb. We tried the taster menu with accompanying wines and it was truly delicious. The meal was seasonal, beautifully presented and not heavy. The barbecued shortrib and croustillant of beef, with hen of the woods and roasting juices was outstanding, as was the English gooseberry souffle. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. It was a very memorable experience. It is definitly on our list of favourite restaurants.

It had been a while since I had visited and the service and food were exceptional as I remembered. The advice for picking the wine was very useful and practical as well as unintimidating! The starters of the cucumber soup with eel/mackerel muffin and the ravioli were delicious and different taste experience, whilst the lamb presented three different ways was excellent quality. We will be back soon!

La Trompette lived up to and beyond expectations! Fine dining with the service and ambience to match. We chose the wine tasting menu and were treated to dishes to satisfy every palate! I was torn between the short rib, the scallop or the turbot as my favourites! Always a great cuisine predicament to be in when you cannot choose your favourite! Don’t just take my word for it, book yourself a table and treat yourself!

I was looking for a venue for lunch in Chiswick, a birthday celebration that wouldn’t disappoint my other half. I booked a table at La Trompette and we left very happy by the whole experience. The food and drink were exemplary, and the staff knowledgeable and only too happy to help. The perfect way to celebrate a special occasion. Can’t wait to visit again. A great place tucked away from it all.

Booked for a special occasion and went for the tasting menu with matching wines. The food was outstanding inventive without being overly showy. Just fantastic flavours. The sommelier made imaginative pairings with the food. The staff were friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this place.

I was really looking forward to this restaurant having visited Chez Bruce several times over the years. I went with my daughter and her partner for my birthday treat. The food was lovely and we all had plenty to choose from. Compared to other similar restaurants we appreciated the sensible size portions that tasted great.

I would definitely go to this place again.

This was a special treat and boy was it special - we had the tasting menu with recommended wines. The food was sublime and presentation and service were superb. While not cheap, when compared to other places of similar quality (and often not as good) it was good value. There was nothing I could fault - a pure delight.

My partner and I visited La Trompet to celebrate her birthday. We have been there before and have always had great experiences. We both had the "taster menu" without the accompanying wine. All of the course were good and three of the courses were exceptional (the Bream, the Turbot and the Banana Souffle). This is an excellent local restaurant and we will definitely be returning at some future date.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere in the reataurant and staff were very attentive. Answered all my questions about the menu. Really helpful on the drinks menu too. The quail starter with black pudding I would highly recommend. My parnter loved it. The suckling pig was a dish full of so much flavour although the pig was a little fatty all the flavours paired well. It was also not a heavy dish. The desserts were amazing full or flavour and not too heavy. This is the second time i have been here and enjoyed it as much as the first time. I would highly recommend La Trompette.

Our first time at a Michelin star restaurant & we were not disappointed. The food was exquisite & delicious plus the portions were more generous then we’d have expected. The service was prompt & the staff were friendly & professional. I’d mentioned when booking that it was for an anniversary & we were presented with a plate which on it was written in chocolate wishing us a happy one which we thought was very nice of them. We would recommend here & would definitely visit again.

This was my second visit to La Trompette. The service was excellent, as was the wine list, and whilst I enjoyed the food, it was not of the same quality as I've eaten at other Michelin starred restaurants. I had scallops to start - good (but over-seasoned, in my view) and pork belly for main course (well cooked, but unusually fatty). My desert (banana soufflé) was deliciously hot, but not sufficiently well cooked. A mediocre experience for the money - I'll be slow to go back.

The food was excellent, staff are very friendly. The place is a bit expensive but we visited at lunch time so it was cheaper the place is very popular and there are lots of tables but there is still a decent space between tables. I had deer and my partner beef, our meats were cooked to perfection. Plates were dressed with style. We will come again.
