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.

Don't let that put you off, however - artifice aside, this is comfortably one of the best places to...more
This is one of those restaurants that I've passed by a million and one times but have never even thought to go into nor try out. I'm in a running group in London that runs literally right by this restaurant every Saturday morning. 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
Frontline is the classy restaurant attached to the Frontline Club, which is a haven for journalists and home to many journalist related events and film screenings. Worth checking out if you get the chance to see something there.
