“Parlour doesn't need trends and tricks: at its best, it already feels like coming home” Lisa Markwell, The Independent

Why we love it

Classically trained at some of the world’s best restaurants – including London’s Le Gavroche and Chicago’s Charlie Trotters – Parlour’s Chef Patron, Jesse Dunford Wood, brings an innovative dining experience to London’s Kensal Rise. Take your seats for a theatrical exclusive-to-Truly ten-course tasting menu that’s brimming with reimagined British favourites.

What's Included?

  • Enjoy an exclusive-to-Truly 10-course tasting menu for two people at Parlour
  • Sample Chef Jesse Dunford Wood's innovative and playful food at its best
  • Savour re-imagined classics, such as the cult-hit 'Cow pie, with or without’ and the nostalgic 'Toasted marshmallow wagon wheel'
  • Optional: For a supplement, add a four-glass drinks pairing each, including wines, beers and cocktails

Exclusive to TRULY

  • This experience is unique to Truly guests

Description

“As welcoming as an open-log fire” is how The Independent’s Lisa Markwell described this laidback eatery. The charming, neo-rustic all-day serving parlour is a striking blend of impressive gastronomy and nostalgia.

At Parlour, quirky, imaginative, and highly-skilful cooking is presented with panache and a sense of theatre. Chef Jesse Dunford Wood defines it as food that is “nostalgic British, colourful British, fun British.” Chef Dunford Wood has worked in kitchens across the globe to bring a wholly unique dining experience back to London. On top of winning the 'Best British Restaurant' award during his time as executive chef of the National Dining Rooms, his exciting international resume includes Marque in Sydney, Balthazaar in New York, London’s own Kensington Palace, and a trio of double Michelin-starred restaurants Charlie Trotter, Le Gavroche, and Gidleigh Park.

Chef Dunford Wood’s eccentric personality translates itself onto this ten-course tasting menu. The ‘Cow Pie', a nod to Desperate Dan’s favourite meal in the Dandy comics, is the stuff of boyhood dreams. The humble and jovially named dish, though, has an incredible complexity of flavour, including bone marrow. In the same vein, the chef's highly evocative desserts see classic childhood treats revamped with a gourmet twist; such as ‘Toasted Marshmallow Wagon Wheels’ and ‘Naïve Chocolate Salted Caramel Rolos’.
