The Old War Office, the Grade 2 listed building in which Winston Churchill made many of the most important decisions of World War 2, is to be turned into a luxury hotel. It was sold in 2014 and will open in 2022 as a hotel in partnership between Raffles (their first venture in Europe) and the Hinduja Group. Acclaimed French chef, Mauro Colagreco (who runs France’s three-Michelin-starred Mirazur in Menton) will help create a brasserie, a chef's table and a fine dining restaurant at this 125 bedroom property.
Harden's survey result
The Old War Office – the Grade II listed building in which Winston Churchill made many of the most important decisions of World War II – was sold in 2014 to the Hinduja Group and will open in 2022 as a luxury, 125-bedroom hotel (and apartments). The hotel will be run in partnership with Raffles (their first venture in Europe) and it is fair to assume a pretty ambitious level will be set for the nine restaurants and bars it will house.
For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
