Tucked away on Soho’s Rupert Street, Heritage Soho is the home of London’s first Alpine-inspired restaurant, offering Modern European cuisine influenced by the classic gastronomy of the Alpine region. Featuring the elements of Swiss, French, Italian, and German traditional cooking, they bring a fresh interpretation to the culinary gems while retaining the excellence of original recipes.
Hailing straight from the heart of the Swiss Alps, Heritage Soho was established in 2019 by the young and thriving D&A Hospitality group. Taking its roots in Switzerland, the group named its first London institution “Heritage”; to pay homage to where it all started – the iconic Restaurant Le Museum in Montreux, Switzerland, previously owned by the founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, Claude Nobs. At Heritage, guests can find the allusion to this legendary event in the original artworks by Keith Haring, Montreux Jazz Festival 1983, and in the works of modern artists such as Yuvi and Paul Insect.
Here, is a short heritage Soho Review:
1. The Kitchen
The kitchen is helmed by Head Chef Christelle Lambourde, who reinvents the traditional flavours of rustic Alpine specialties with innovative ingredients and cooking techniques. Being dedicated to producing quality, carefully sourced food made of seasonal local ingredients from artisan producers across England and Switzerland, she creates a menu with a perfect balance between much-loved food classics and modern culinary twists. You will surely be impressed by the Heritage Soho Menu.
Here are the a la carte highlights:
Heritage’s Classic Fondue – based on the most popular, traditional Swiss recipe “moitie-moitie” (“half-half”), featuring an equal proportion of Gruyère and Vacherin Fribourgeois. At Heritage, all fondue pots are served with sides of bread, baby potatoes, and pickles.
Heritage’s Traditional Raclette Plate – a traditional Swiss dish that originated in the Valais canton of Switzerland about 400 years ago. Like fondue, raclette is a typical après-ski meal that involves scrapping melted raclette cheese onto a plate with potatoes and pickles.
Steaks & BBQ Grill – using the highest quality ingredients, the restaurant is committed to offering a great variety of meat steaks cooked as requested and prime cuts of meats designed for grilling at your table using a special BBQ stove, known in Switzerland as the “Charbonnade”.

4. Special nights
Live music events also occur every Thursday to Sunday, with a saxophonist playing on Thursday nights and Sunday brunches, and a line-up of the best DJs joining every Friday and Saturday night and for brunch on Saturday.
5. Pre-Theatre Dining
Located just a stone’s throw away from Theatreland, Heritage is the ideal spot for a pre-curtain call meal. With an exciting menu full of both classic and surprising Alpine specialties, theatregoers will not be disappointed with equally delicious pre-theatre options.
The pre-theatre dining menu is served Monday – Friday, 5 pm – 6:30 pm, and offers two or three courses. With reliably prompt service, expect to savour a gourmet selection of a la carte favourites, including signature Raclette or chef’s special Crispy Skin Duck Breast, and round it off with one particularly indulgent house-made dessert.

6. Heritage Soho Bottomless Brunch
You can’t help but agree – brunch is really the perfect weekend activity, especially in London. For anyone who appreciates brunch with a twist, every Saturday and Sunday, from 12 pm-5 pm, Heritage serves its Alpine-inspired brunch with a menu of three perfectly executed courses. Your Alpine feast will start with Rösti, a Swiss pan-fried dish made of grated potatoes and served with various toppings, followed by a mouthwatering choice of mains, including a weekend Roast & classic or truffle Cheese Fondue.
Of course, no weekend is complete without having a comforting Sunday meal for lunch or dinner. For those who respect this beloved British tradition, Heritage offers a special Sunday Roast menu available to order all day every Sunday during brunch and dinner services.
