The previous post suggests the likelihood of homecooked meal will make special guest on Bumascloset, which are coming from next week and upwards. However, I’ve been a naughty girl by rewarding myself with dinner at the Sanderson after a month of hard work. Without no further ado, I’m going to tempt you into wearing your best dress with a friend or two to brunch or have dinner at the Sanderson.
Set within 0.5 kilometres of bustle street of Oxford Street, this west end restaurant sits nestled within the Sanderson hotel with a garden view that resonates brunch at a Japanese garden terrace with a friend on a balmy day. The Sanderson’s building won’t go amiss with their signature red lip sofa signalling your arrival at the hotel. The feeling of luxury with a hint of exclusivity, surrounded by the ambience in a spa retreat strikes you as soon as your experience at Sanderson’s begins. The friendly guest services team are there to greet you from the entrance till you’re sitting at your table.
Upon entrance to get to the waiter’s line, a dramatic glowing onyx long bar grabbed my attention with it’s dripping climbing vines and hanging plants before being whisked off to the courtyard garden by a lovely waiter to be settled and wait for the arrival of my friend. At the table, the roof had heaters to keep warm with a blanket on each chair for guests for extra warmth while enjoying the ambience and surroundings.
Flicking through the non-extensive menu, I opted for their Roasted Cod (Razor clams, English peas, beans, butter sauce) with creamed mashed potato, suggested by the waiter, to compliment the main dish. And boy was it exquisite. The cod was cooked thoroughly, seasoned to perfection with the soft creamed mashed potato making the meal go down a treat.
Sanderson is the perfect place to slide in for a relaxing brunch, afternoon tea with friends or have dinner on a warm summer night. When people hear the term fine dining, it brings to mind a notion of overpriced plates with not enough food, the underwhelming service, fortunately, Sanderson has shattered these stereotypes by going above and beyond.
