Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Jack’s Kitchen is the perfect place for those visiting Kingston in need of a home away from home, as well as for locals looking for a treat. As members of the latter category, we were rather excited to discover what culinary delights awaited us in this contemporary and lively restaurant.
We started with watermelon and feta salad with olives and balsamic, and delicious buffalo mozzarella with heritage tomato, pea shoots and balsamic pearls. Both dishes were exactly what an appetiser should be: fresh, light and flavourful. If you prefer a more social dining experience you can opt for the likes of truffle arancini with Parmesan cream, Padrón peppers, and spiced olives to share. Although tempted by the impressive range of creative cocktails, I opted for a glass of the pinot grigio, which complemented my fillet of sea bass perfectly. The tender fish was accompanied by baby plum tomatoes, fennel, olives and caper dressing. Meanwhile, my partner enjoyed succulent fillet steak with smoked garlic butter. Desserts are a lavish affair at Jack’s Kitchen and come highly recommended.
With warm service, a welcoming atmosphere and great views of the Thames, Jack’s Kitchen provides guests with plenty of choice and promises that all who visit leave satiated and eager to return. After hearing about the unique Sunday carvery – it’s served on a beautiful traditional carving trolley with all the delicious trimmings – we’re already planning our next visit to see what the hype is all about.
