This “stunning and beautiful dining room”, off the hotel’s main ‘Promenade’, inherited its Moorish décor from the 1930s and is currently riding high on the “wonderful dining experience” created by 27-year-old wunderkind chef, Tom Booton’s cuisine: “a serious talent going right to the very top; and a humble and approachable guy whose restaurant reflects this ethos”. Top Tip – “the set lunch is one of the capital’s biggest bargains” and is great on a Sunday here.

Tom Booton, the 27-year-old head chef, is helping breathe new life into this stately Mayfair chamber, which received nothing but upbeat reviews this year, driven by “modern British cuisine at its best”. This is one of the capital’s grander traditional dinings rooms and, if he keeps this up, deserves to recapture the destination status that’s sometimes eluded it in recent times. In particular, it’s a venue that’s evidently “great for business diners”. But you don’t have to be carrying company plastic to appreciate the “amazing lunch menu”: “at £30 it’s arguably the best value in London”.

This “sophisticated and impressive” Mayfair chamber has had its ups and downs in recent times, and despite scoring a respectable level of customer satisfaction in the last couple of years, still came nowhere near realising its potential as one of the capital’s best traditional dining rooms. The hotel has seen a lot of changes in recent times, though, with the June 2019 appointment of Stefan Trepp as Executive Chef (replacing Henry Brosi who’d been in-post for 20 years); and with the July 2019 hiring of 26-year-old Tom Booton, who shifted over from heading the kitchen at the highly rated Alyn Williams at the Westbury. Can this potentially magnificent dining room now finally regain its place as one of London’s foremost hotel venues?

Amazing food, wine and service on our visit...
Reviewed 7 months, 26 days ago

"Amazing food, wine and service on our visit for Sunday lunch. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating and the food was of a very high standard. However the experience was somewhat negatively impacted by the loud live music which made conversation difficult. Whilst the presence of some ambient music can be positive, it was far too loud in what was quite a quiet restaurant."
