This is Marcus Wareing's first new venture since the Gilbert Scott (relaunch of Marcus at the Berkeley aside) and aims to be a more casual affair.The interior has been decorated with an efficient, brasserie-style layout and colour palette. This is a popular choice for pre and post-theatre dinners due to the enviable location right in the heart of London's theatre-land.

Tredwell’s now do breakfast, and it’s very good indeed
This time we’re back to pore over the new breakfast menu, and anywhere that serves you a margarita at 8 in the morning is certainly headed in the right direction.
Of course it’s only fair to offer a thought to those who stick religiously to a healthy diet even when eating out, so there are freshly made juices and smoothies, granola and fruit with Greek yoghurt. If on the other hand you confine low-cal low-carb stuff to pre-holiday regimes (or ignore it entirely), your order will be a little more like ours. Prawn Benedict is the classic dish made with juicy prawns instead of salmon, with suitably rich soft poached eggs and an even richer Hollandaise that oozes all over the muffins (in fact a Hollandaise mousseline, with the added extravagance of cream in the sauce). Another wonderfully indulgent option is the caramelised banana eggy bread, paired with smoky bacon, chunks of sweet fried banana and maple syrup drizzled over the top. And to drink? The Breakfast Margarita of course, made with tequila and marmalade, and a strong Bloody Maria also made with tequila. It’s very good indeed.

One of Britain’s finest chefs ventures into casual dining
Tredwell’s is much bigger than it appears on first sight, as there are 130 covers spread out over three floors. The site was once owned by Asian fusion restaurant Kyashii, however they’ve done a very good job at redesigning the space so you’d never know there was once a blinging, VIP club-style restaurant here once upon a time. Gone are the giant fish tanks and trashy neon lights to be replaced by a buzzy, sleek yet informal eatery backed by Mr Wareing, albeit without his input in the kitchen.
Most dishes are available as small or large portions, two of us are comfortably full after six small plates. We like the crunchy charred snowpeas with a rich olive dip, and the polenta chips with smoky tomato salsa. Grilled squid with courgette, peppers and bottarga, and confit cod with sweet potato mash are also very good, but the standout dish are the sliders stuffed with melt-in-the-mouth pulled pork, apple and ginger. Only the smoked chicken croquettes served with spicy mayo suffer a little from being too salty.
The desserts are some of the best we’ve tasted in a while – a chocolate pot topped with Campari-flavoured crushed ice is a superb combination, and the avocado and white chocolate sprinkled with chia seeds and chocolate cornflakes is a novel take on chocolate mousse.
There is a lot to like about Tredwell’s, with accessible prices and heaps of allergen information on the menus being two other plus points. If this is the first of more affordable restaurants to come from Wareing, that’s a very good thing indeed.
