There is something very exciting about being in a casino, even if you're just watching others hoping to land the jackpot. With this in mind, The Gallery has been perfectly placed to give diners a view of the gaming tables at Grosvenor G Casino. The dining area is small and intimate, and despite being separated from the casino floor by only a low wall, it still manages to have a cosy ambience. My partner and I tried the grilled scallops with chorizo on a bed of light pea purée and coconut-fried shrimp with carrot and cucumber salad. The portion sizes were generous and both dishes were cooked to perfection. The excellent choice of mains made it somewhat difficult to choose just one. In the end we settled on the pan-fried fillets of sea bass with crisp fennel coleslaw and crushed potatoes and rump of lamb with champ potatoes and redcurrant gravy. We were certainly not disappointed with our choices, which were beautifully complemented by side dishes of little gem Caesar salad, roasted root vegetables and potato Dauphinoise. To finish, we sampled the delightfully refreshing lemon tart and the wickedly rich chocolate delice with a caramel centre. The comprehensive menu provides excellent value for money and the staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful, creating a most enjoyable dining experience.
