Everything about Glass oozes class. I'd never heard of it before so I didn't know what to expect, but from a classy pre-prandial G&T in the smart bar to the last mouthful of delectable rare Kent lamb, nothing could have been improved upon.
Admittedly, as we ate early (6.45pm) there were not many customers, but even so the service was exemplary. The food arrived quickly and was absolutely stunning. My potted duck with smoked duck breast was the most incredible I've ever tasted and my partner's poached pear, rocket and stilton salad (if I recall correctly) was equally good. The main courses of salmon and lamb followed swiftly (but not too swiftly) and were of an equally high mouth-watering standard.
The total bill including service was £26: no wine (January detox!) and with 5pm.co.uk's 50% discount on food. Worth every penny, even without the discount.
While I was waiting for my partner to powder her nose afterwards, I chatted to the maitre d' who explained that all (or at least 90%) of their food is sourced in the British Isles and they change the menu regularly depending on availability, and they explain in the menu where all the food is from.
Wonderful food, wonderful service and wonderful staff. What more could you ask for in a restaurant? Apart from maybe a candle on the table; but I'm really splitting hairs now.
I urge you, in the collective interest in gastronomy, to go to this restaurant now: you won't be disappointed.
