Frontline Restaurant sources produce from its own farm in Norfolk, meaning that not only is the restaurant involved in every process of preparation, from planting to plate, and the food utterly fresh, but it keeps its environmental credentials utterly intact. If that makes you feel guilty ordering the sumptuous lobster and shellfish broth, it needn't - fish is supplied directly from small boats off England's east coast.

As its always fresh and locally sourced, produce is seasonal, so even in central London you can still keep in touch with the effects of the changing of the seasons. Plus, there's something delightfully autumnal about tucking into pumpkin and butternut squash followed by blackberry crumble on a cold October day.

Given the drive toward local and ethically sourced food, it is unsurprising that the menu is quintessentially British, with dishes including partridge Wellington, carrot purée and Cumberland dressing, and roast loin of hare and caramelised chicory. This is the kind of traditional country fare that you don't often find in London, with a touch of unique and modern flair. The wine list has been lovingly compiled and sourced by Malcom Gluck, and offers an outstanding range of excellent bins. Thanks to Gluck's refusal to attach astronomic mark-up prices to them, wines are available at prices that, considering their quality, are probably unmatchable in the locale.

The restaurant also supports, and provides a meeting space for, the charitable Frontline Trust, which is dedicated to promoting freedom of expression and excellence in journalism, and whose presence creates the intellectual aura of an up-market 'literary café' - a feeling enhanced by the classically elegant decor, which is all clean lines and wood with a slightly retro feel. Frontline is very much the chic, modern face of ethical restauranteering.
