Chef Sally Abé’s eagerly anticipated new restaurant will open on Tuesday 20th July at the Conrad London St James. As one of the Capital’s most talented and awarded chefs, Sally’s impact on the London food scene is about to reach new heights at The Pem.

The menu at The Pem displays an elevated style of the food that Sally has become renowned for; it’s more refined, more considered, and more sophisticated – yet still retains the fun and liveliness that Sally’s guests have come to know and love. Sally will be building on the foundations of historic British cuisine and celebrating flavours and ingredients that are familiar and much-loved but interpreting them in her own way.

    The quality and presentation of the food was excellent and the menu choices appropriate for fresh seasonal cuisine. The service was courteous and friendly, especially Emma but occasionally rushed. However it is not easy to find, with little reference to it outside the Conrad Hotel and consequently the place lacked any buzz.

    Wonderful experience dining while staying at the Conrad on vacation. The service, food and ambiance were all exquisite and befitting a fine dining experience in a 5 star hotel. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a fine dining experience.

    As always, Sally Abe's food hits all the right notes. Worth a special mention is the Confit Chalk Stream Trout - cooking perfect, gently pickled vegetables and walnuts in the Hambledon Sauce combining perfectly. A special mention for the service in general - informal and relaxed with no 5* stuffiness - and the Sommelier in particular.

    We had a family lunch at the Pem on a bright sunny day. The restaurant is very dark, no windows, quite old-fashioned in terms of decor and only two tables were occupied. Perhaps because it was so beautiful outside nobody wanted to sit in a dark restaurant.For some reason they sat us immediately next to the people on the other table in an otherwise empty restaurant ! The waiting and serving staff however were absolutely lovely and efficient. My wife ordered a glass of champagne to start but was given what seemed more like a half glass. The steak was definitely the best choice of main courses but my pork was pretty good too. My wife chose a vegetarian tarte fine with artichoke purée which was quite ordinary, lots of pastry.

    The food was fantastic, however service was poor. Having paid upwards of £350 for a meal it is unacceptable to have the staff question why you don't want to leave a £50 tip and adopt a poor/rude attitude when you explain why. This is not reflective of the standard expected in this sort of restaurant. Better etiquette expected!

    We had Sally’s banquet menu from Great British Menu, was delicious I ate my first scallops, I have avoided them previously as I don’t like fish! The pork was rather over salted though, it overpowered everything else on the dish

    Lovely helpful staff, service not hurried and not intrusive, knife and fork bacon and hen of the woods starter both great, mains went for the lamb and guinea fowl and dessert was a must malt chocolate and peanut bar , lemon meringue both finished off an excellent meal. Will visit again when in London.

    The food was delicious with great depth of flavour and interesting combinations. Wine was very good the sommelier did a great job. Found the waitress a little overly friendly that was just her way the other staff hit the right note. We booked for 2pm and were the only diners except for one from lunch. I’m not sure if this is usual but felt odd having no one else around. Come on people give it a go the food is well worth it! The dining room is lovely it feels opulent and indulgent.

    We very much enjoyed Sally Abe's Banquet Menu - it was a really joyous evening. The food was delicious, especially the Scolli Bolli Scallops and the Blue Peter Time Capsule and the service was excellent - friendly, but not intrusive. We all enjoyed meeting Sally and hearing more about what it was like to be part of Great British Menu. It is an expensive evening, but as a treat definitely worth it.

    Excellent service. Enjoyed every interaction with all the staff. Happy people. Stand out canapés. Starters and mains all exquisite- Langoustine & Peas+Razor clams followed Guinea Fowl Breast+asparagus & Herdwick Lamb. Each mouthful an adventure of flavour and texture. Finished with 2 chocolates - understand why they are Sally’s favourite. Thoroughly recommend.
