The days when this long-established tavern pulled in audiences for its bareknuckle boxing matches are long gone - nowadays it's considerably more sophisticated, with families, couples and professionals flocking here for fantastic food rather than fisticuffs.

Minutes from the A4 and South Ealing tube station, EPT, as it's known to locals, offers a varied menu encompassing classic British fare as well as some Asian and modern European creations. Its dishes have been carefully devised to cater for all tastes, including those of children and vegetarians. Guests can dine à la carte, or on Sundays opt for the ever-popular roast dinner. Following the tradition of fish on Fridays, the tavern also serves lobster, fresh from Billingsgate Market, as an end-of-week treat.

The current management have updated the dining area, creating chic vintagestyle decor that centres on a statement chandelier and offers a view into the open kitchen. There's also a fabulous walled garden for warmer summer evenings.

Having enjoyed success at several highly acclaimed restaurants, the new head chef at The Ealing Park Tavern has made a significant impact since his arrival. His aim to provide a high-end gastro experience using top-quality ingredients was certainly achieved on our visit. My grilled mackerel with horseradish cream and pickled cucumber was a fresh, light starter, and the Asian-influenced pork belly I chose for my main was wonderfully offset by tangy, creamy caramelised apple. My companion's tart combined the sweetness of shallots with the saltiness of Stilton, while the bream fillet which followed was perfectly complemented by an inventive white bean, olive and lemon purée. From the list of French and New World wines, we chose a crisp New Zealand sauvignon blanc and a smooth rosé from the Pays d'Oc, and to finish we just managed to fit in a gooey brownie and some wonderful homemade ice creams.

But it's not just the food that makes EPT worth a visit - careful attention to detail is also apparent in the service. Staff are focused, knowledgeable and eager to please, with the entire team committed to continuous improvement. It's no wonder people return again and again to sample more Ealing Park Tavern delights
