Chef Sally Abé’s eagerly anticipated new restaurant will open on Tuesday 20th July at the Conrad London St James. As one of the Capital’s most talented and awarded chefs, Sally’s impact on the London food scene is about to reach new heights at The Pem.

The menu at The Pem displays an elevated style of the food that Sally has become renowned for; it’s more refined, more considered, and more sophisticated – yet still retains the fun and liveliness that Sally’s guests have come to know and love. Sally will be building on the foundations of historic British cuisine and celebrating flavours and ingredients that are familiar and much-loved but interpreting them in her own way.

    I had high expectations given the chef's (Sally Abe's) track record. Nothing terrible, has potential, just not quite as sharp as you'd expect. Food was served even though a member of our party (of 3) was absent, but not poured wine, then it was a bit of a chore to get his glass filled up for a toast, which was a little awkward. Too long a wait between starter and main, and again had to chase up. (not a full restaurant) In terms of food, we were very excited about the wild mushroom souffle, however this starter is more akin to a flan (or sformatino) in terms of form. Not offensive by any means, just not an airy puff of earthy goodness; to top it off, it literally gets suffocated by a dollop of something-or-rather cream. The deer and beef were great, unfortunately we had to ration our last drops of wine as we had already consumed most of it during the post-flan intermission. Wine list, would have liked to see more English sparkling options.

    Excellent in every way. Lunch set menu good value - but we went for the main menu. Little bit empty and doesnt deserve to be so. It could fill the gap that The Square left when it closed its doors.

    So disappointed with food. We were very excited after reading Tim Haywards review in FT and had some similar dishes. We had oysters, trout and Langoustine. All were disappointing. The fallow Deer for main was average served only with a cabbage that was too tart for balance and no carbs with no option of additional side dishes on the menu. The bread was good and the staff were nice. Very expensive at approx £350 for 3 for 2 courses each with 5 glasses of wine. Would not recommend The Pem or sadly Tim Haywards reviews (despite excellent writing).

    Visited The Pem for my birthday lunch. Service from start to finish was top notch. As with a restaurant of this calibre/ price point, it is the little touches and attention to detail which makes the difference. My mushroom souffle felt decadent, the monkfish main was delicious and the Lemon Meringue was beautifully light and a nice balance of sweet ness and tartness. My partner, had the Damson and apple lattice dessert which was also lovely. The restaurant was a little quiet, but it was mid week lunchtime and on reflection, nice to be in a quiet and tranquil environment to relax and savour or food.

    The food was top drawer, the lemon meringue dessert equals any pudding I have eaten in any ‘starred’ restaurant. However, the service, from our arrival to our departure was excellent. Well paced, knowledgeable and polite, a credit to any fine dining establishment. Would highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.

    Lovely attentive service. First course of mushroom soufflé was good especially the umami cream which made the dish. The deer for mains was ok, the deer was very tender and cooked beautifully unfortunately the dish was let down by the pickled cabbage which did not compliment the dish and was raw and cumbersome. It’s a nice enough restaurant and they are trying hard but not quite achieving the exorbitant prices they are charging. I wouldn’t return nor recommend

    Sensational food in a beautiful dining room. The head waiter was charismatic and knowledgable, and the service was largely slick and seamless. One of the more junior members of the team seemed quite new and inexperienced, the main giveaway being the inelegant way she held and poured from a wine bottle. But other than this minor issue, The Pem is an absolute delight. This was my second visit, and I’m already looking forward to the next one!!

    We’d almost forgotten we’d booked this, and nearly cancelled as it didn’t quite fit with our plan…. THANK GOD WE MADE IT WORK!!!! This was amazing - service was incredible, especially the Sommelier who really pushed me out of my comfort zone with wine to match the Guinea Fowl. And the apple dessert…. #chefskiss! Well worth a visit - love the dusty pink and rich ruby decor as well. Oh - and the vanity fair covers on the walls.
