Our Inspector's view

Close to Green Park and Buckingham Palace, this stylish hotel restaurant boasts a premium postcode in the heart of London. Intimate and traditional with a classy art deco look, the oak panelling is offset by striking geometric-striped marble floors. Low lit with crisp white linen, it makes for an elegant setting to enjoy the accomplished cooking of top-drawer ingredients. Flavours are big and technique is precise, but it’s all executed with a lightness of touch. Rich veal sweetbreads are imaginatively matched with pear purée, slices of pear and a well-judged mustard cream. Moist and sweet lightly poached native lobster is paired with Italian tomatoes, pine nuts and tiny basil leaves, with an assertive langoustine hollandaise. Or, perhaps, go for a moist and tender guinea fowl breast with pickled shallots, coffee purée, crispy kale and smoky chunks of Morteau sausage. Intensely flavoured Garriguette strawberries - pieces of fresh fruit, gel and coulis – turns up with a yoghurt-like kefir foam and a dusting nitro-frozen extra virgin olive oil.

About the area

Discover London

The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.

London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
