Green Man & French Horn on Urbanspoon

Square Meal

 

The Green Man & French Horn is operated by the same people as those behind some of our favorite London restaurant (e.g., Terroirs and Brawn).  Similar to its sister restaurants the Green Man & French Horn focuses on French soul food, in this case from the Loire region. And similar to its sister restaurants, as big an emphasis is put on the wine list as on the food menu.  It all makes for a very cosy and heart-warming dining experience.

The Green Man & French Horn is located in the heart of the West End,  London’s theatre district (not far from its sister restaurant Terroirs). The interior is that of a quaint and simple French country restaurant and the cooking reflects this same concept. It all makes for a very comfortable dining experience.

The dishes at the Green Man & French Horn are tasty (none of the dishes we tried disappointed), but it is not as exceptional as at Terroirs or Brawn. Compared to for instance Terroirs the dishes at Green Man & French Horn are more simple and rustic. The service is very good and attentive.
