Byatt has found a worthy home in Clapham throughout much of his esteemed career. He opened his first restaurant - the much feted Thyme - in the area in 2003, while Trinity’s sister restaurant, Bistro Union, can also be found on the trendy streets of SW4.
At Trinity, dazzling flavour combinations - a sirloin of beef may be paired with snails, while scallops often come served with chamomile and cucumber – give weight to the prize, seasonal ingredients used by Byatt. There is a rustic feel to proceedings, with a smokehouse on the roof adding potency to Byatt’s impressive armoury of dishes.
Trinity is a restaurant people go back to again and again. And, despite the undeniably refined nature of the cooking, laced with a fair few touches of extravagance, Trinity never loses sight of the fact that it is a ‘neighbourhood’ eatery at heart; service is far from stuffy and the décor – as with the food - is elegant but decidedly unpretentious. Add in the fact that it is thoroughly good value and it is easy to see why Byatt is so adored in South West London and beyond.
