Some excellent restaurants are like secrets, tucked away from brashness and bustle, apparently known only to a select crowd of zealots and devotees. Roussillon is a classic case. Everything about it breathes veiled discretion. The Pimlico street in which you eventually gaze at its bow-windowed loveliness is so discreet, it doesn't even show up on my online Streetmap. Ring for directions, and you're told to park the car and walk.

The latest venture of the Hotel du Vin and Malmaison group is this Victorian pub, next to Smithfield meat market. At the pewter-topped bar, real ales are served on tap, while hearty food (pies, steak, fish and chips) can be enjoyed amid the wood panelling and brass of the pub's main room. The bedrooms are more contemporary, with velvet soft furnishings, smart baths and striking photography of the London landmarks after which each of them is named.
