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.

We love treating ourselves to a meal at La Trompette; the food is consistently delicious, the service top notch and attentive. But also friendly and warm hearted, which can be rare in restaurants at this level. Special shout out to the sommelier and manager!

Truly outstanding without being pompous in any way. We had the most delicious food and wonderful service as well as fantastic wine at very reasonable prices for the quality and particularly liked the way we were not rushed in any way unlike some restaurants that will only allow you a 2 hour seating.

We had the tasting menu, which at £75 for 8 courses I believe is outstanding value (no wine)! My wife is pregnant and the restaurant happily adjusted the tasting menu to accommodate like giving her the option to swap out one of the starters for something from the a la carte menu or cooking the scallop all the way through.

Service, as expected, was very good.

Quite noisy but not in a bad way.

Highly recommended!

We had the perfect sunday night at La Trompette and will definately come back. The food is fantastic and the staff very nice. If I would have to complain about something it would be that the waiters didn't really explain the food good enough and not everyone was aware of my partners nut allergy (we mentioned it when booking the table so I would have expected them to know about), our red wine was also a little bit too cold for ou4 taste. Overall it was a great experience though!

Excellent value for what you get and the food quality was superb. My only criticism is that while some of the staff were fabulous, some were a little gruff and awkward.

This has been the worst Michelin star I have ever been. Food was far from been amazing, just an average French restaurant, expensive, boring atmosphere, nothing exciting about the experience. We had to wait 30 minutes on "the bar" (where all empty glasses were being dropped), we had to wait 30 minutes between dishes at 11pm on a Friday, none of the food really got us impressed.

Great food. Restaurant not happy to have a small baby, sat us away from the main dining area facing into kitchen door and staff service area (despite restaurant being empty on arrival and just under half full when we left). Were told on arrival the ‘policy is no children’.
