Percy & Founders: review


Percy & Founders is a very warm and welcoming restaurant where you can dine on your lunch break, business meeting or dinner with a friend. One of the things that makes this restaurant so special is the location. Despite the central location, the restaurant has a quiet and elegant vibe. The front terrace is decorated with nicely lit trees and the grass lawn next door will make you forget about crowd and noisy restaurants surrounding you.

The indoor design was created to make you feel at home, and indeed you cannot feel otherwise. The wooden tables and the comfortable chairs give the space a vintage touch and the big windows allows guests to enjoy the natural light. Your experience will be entirely positive, not only because the food is excellent, but the team are also well organised and professional.

What did we eat?

Because the menu was varied and everything sounded extremely tasty, it took us a few minutes to decide what we are going to eat. However, we decided to start with the famous Scotch Egg. The crispy blanket on top was a perfect combination with the creamy and juicy sausage. The egg was carefully cooked and the condiments on top balanced the taste of the entire dish. The side sauce was slightly spicy, completing the tasty explosion of all ingredients.

The English Asparagus is the best option for a light and delicious starter. The plate was beautifully decorated with spring greens giving the dish a fresh look and taste. The velvety Berkswell cheese together with the Hollandaise sauce made the food extremely delicious.

If you are a seafood lover, we highly recommend starting with the Crispy Squid, you will not be disappointed. The crust is so crispy and yet delicate, giving you the opportunity to enjoy it properly with a chilli and lime dip. To add a fresh taste, the leaves spread all over the dish give the plate a unique combination of colours.

When comes to mains, Percy & Founders have a large variety of mains from Galloway Steak to Pan-roasted Halibut. On a lighter note, we chose the salad. All of the ingredients were carefully combined to give a fresh and balanced taste.

The Hot Smoked Salmon Salad will definitely make you come again. On a fresh lettuce base, the smoked salmon offers a fine and delicate taste of a pretentious yet very simple dish. The Caesar Salad is a mixture of green and natural ingredients, well chosen to create a unique taste experience. Everything was mixed together with a creamy parmesan and herb dressing and flavourful condiments.

Our Thoughts?

After our experience at Percy & Founders, we highly recommend this restaurant to people who have a great taste for food. The ambience is unique, harmonious and tranquil. With an open eye for detail and your needs, the members of staff will deliver an excellent service. The area is very accessible, very close to the well-known Oxford Circus Station. The entire atmosphere will offer a nice experience that will make you want to come again. Still not convinced? Try it yourself!
