The Brackenbury is small independent restaurant in Hammersmith. Owned by head chef Humphrey Fletcher it is regarded by some people as a hidden gem, so hidden in fact, that very few people have ever seemed to find it, and certainly more 'hidden' than 'gem'.
The restaurant has recently undergone a major refurbishment; with a new bar at the front of the restaurant, a dining room hung with paintings by local artists and a light-filled, trellised garden room at the back.
If you like good value food and drink, comfortable surroundings and friendly service (and who doesn't?) then look no further, The Brackenbury is the place for you
Open since 1688 the Brackenbury has seen many celebrities darken its doorway - notable people include Dick Turpin, Maximilien Robespierre, Pope Clement IX and local boy William Morris. It is also said that top celebrity chef Alexis Soyer learnt his craft in its dungeon-like kitchens. These are all unsubstantiated.
