Serving mostly European cuisine with a modern twist, signature dishes at Glasshouse are beautifully presented and include gems such as the pink and succulent lamb shank with pumpkin and cranberry sauce, and heavenly smoked haddock with poached egg and mash. Vegetarians will also find much to choose from. The service is good too – swift, knowledgeable and not intrusive. But this isn’t to say they leave you alone for hours. Unfortunately, the late-’90s ‘contemporary’ decor, grey and well-trodden carpet and airport lounge-esque atmosphere spoils what could be an exceptional place to eat. Perhaps the interior decorators working on Ramsay’s restaurant next door could pop over to give it a creative facelift – then nothing could hold this place back.
