The Campaner is a new restaurant with Barcelona soul in a beautiful new landmark building in the heart of Belgravia designed by architect Ben Pentreath. The restaurant is situated on Garrison Square at Chelsea Barracks, amongst peaceful landscaped gardens, and adjacent to the recently restored Grade II-listed Garrison Chapel.
The Campaner, meaning ‘bell ringer’, takes its name from the Catalan tradition of the town bell ringer announcing important events by ringing the bell of the local church. The bell ringer was the pillar of the local community, and The Campaner, with its view to the neighbouring Garrison Chapel’s bell, will be at the heart of the neighbourhood.
The Campaner offers a varied menu of simple, seasonal dishes that are firmly rooted in the finest local ingredients, featuring produce from the UK’s best suppliers including Wright Bros, Natoora, Neal’s Yard, HG Walter, and Walter and Sons, as well as fresh herbs and vegetables harvested directly from the kitchen gardens outside the restaurant.
Specialities on the menu include the likes of: Oyster gratin with bearnaise sauce; Roast leek with pickled tomatoes, goat cheese and hazelnuts: Steak tartar served on bone marrow; and scallops with celeriac and caviar.
At the heart of the menu are charcoal-grilled meats, shellfish, veg, and whole fish cooked in the Josper oven. Dishes include Rossini sirloin steak; Grilled rack of herb-marinated lamb; Coquelette; Grilled baby lettuce with hollandaise; and a 45 day-aged côte de bouef. Guests are able to choose sides such as roasted, fried or parmentier potatoes, roasted vegetables, and fresh salads, together with freshly made sauces including aioli and romesco, to accompany each dish.
