Frontline has a clubby, relaxed atmosphere, not surprising when you appreciate that the restaurant sits below a leading club of war reporters dedicated to highlighting global causes and crises. The menu is an uncompromising selection of honest British dishes, with ingredients from independent suppliers and the owner's own farm in Norfolk. A cleverly priced wine list chosen by Malcolm Gluck opts for flat charges rather than mark-ups.

So, when a visiting friend from college and his wife were coming into town and staying in the neighborhood, they decided to choose to reserve a table at Frontline....more

The restaurant is equally worth seeing if you like well presented, fancy meals with white linens and attentive service. And I do.
We went for lunch (make a...more
Headline: a bit of British Foodie Heaven
Location: less than a half mile from Paddington station, so sorry if I seem a little raving on this place. It's good - really good. The walls are adorned with photographs that are iconic - the tiananmen square photo showing a guy standing in front of tanks; st Paul's cathedral during the London bombings; and others. It's a history of journalistic...more
