Award-winning London gastropub the Truscott Arms, in Maida Vale, west London, has launched a new fine-dining restaurant called Born 1983 in its upstairs dining room.

The new restaurant, headed up by head chef Aidan McGee, will offer two set menus called ‘Journey’ and ‘Memories’ conceptually based around McGee’s culinary background and history.

Andrew Fishwick, who owns the Truscott Arms with his wife and business partner, Mary Jane, said: “Launching Born 1983 is the most exciting new thing we’ve done at the Truscott Arms.

'An insight'

“The food really is an insight into Aidan’s exceptional talent and I believe sums up everything we’ve tried to do here.”

Dishes include sweetbreads with lavender honey, sweet corn and soured mushrooms; duck egg with 12 year-old Oloroso sherry and artichokes; Scottish langoustine with caviar and seafood soup; and quail with Sauternes sauce.

McGee previously worked at double Michelin-starred restaurant Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, which is currently ranked seventh in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

Top 50 Gastropubs

The Truscott Arms has been named one of the Top 50 Gastropubs in the UK​ two years in a row and was given a special award for Wine List of the Year at the 2016 awards, which took place on Monday 25 January.

Andrew and Mary Jane recently expanded their estate with the launch of a new wine bar and restaurant, the Truscott Cellar, in Belsize Park, north-west London.
