Our Inspector's view

This high-ceilinged dining room with enormous windows draped in grey linen, plus impressive lighting, and beautiful pale blue velvet banquettes brings French style to the splendid Sofitel London St James. In fact, the wonderful dining room sets the scene for Anthony Demetre’s precise and honest seasonal cooking. The Chef Proprietor leads a technically accomplished team and his great understanding of taste, flavour and produce are always to the fore. Kick off perhaps with the wild mushroom tart, ragout of Scottish girolles with sweet young peas and hazelnut sabayon. Move on to an exceptional roast and slow cooked Denbighshire Welsh lamb with grilled Vesuvio tomato and trombetta courgette. The lamb sauce is stunning with wonderful depth of flavour yet light in texture. Finish with a well-made Paris Brest – well-executed choux pastry, just right in shape and feel with a well-balanced praline creme. The team here clearly know their stuff and there’s a sommelier always on hand to help with wine recommendations.

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.
