Square Meal Review of The Foyer & The Reading Room at Claridge's ?

Tagged onto the side of Claridge’s Foyer, this all-day dining room was once the hotel’s library. Any sense of bookish silence has been replaced by an appropriately sedate buzz, with marble-cut fireplaces, velvet columns & suede walls all upping the art deco ante. The kitchen invests in produce rather than dazzling technique, allowing the likes of halibut with new potatoes & hollandaise or lamb cutlets with chips & all the trimmings to stand on the own feet. This may not be Claridge’s flagship eatery, but with mains clocking in around £35 you are still paying for the name. Salads are easier on the appetite if not the wallet, perhaps roast duck with celeriac, beetroot & raspberry dressing. Service is discreet yet totally attentive, & the whole shebang comes with a liberal helping of A-list celebs.

    The Food Judge :: Claridges. The Reading Room. Shhh!

    Have you ever eaten in the The Foyer and Reading Room at Claridges? Thought not. You’ll have heard of the main restaurant, soon to be occupied by Simon Rogan, whose flagship restaurant at the Midland Hotel in Manchester has undoubtedly transformed that dowdy dowager duchess of an hotel dining room but has also divided the critics. I am not sure whether he plans to use the produce from his own farm in Cumbria at Claridges, but it will certainly be very different to the rather tired Gordon Ramsay offering previously occupying the space and now quietly laid to rest. But meanwhile, if you want to dine in the legend that is Claridges, you have the choice of The Foyer or The Reading Room. The Foyer is not a foyer in the usual sense, but is an actual and spectacular room, just adjacent to the main lobby of the hotel. Art Deco arches of splendour greet you as you walk through the main entrance. Understated it is not, attracting a mix of ladies who lunch, out-of-towners and hotel residents. And hidden away to the left of the look-at-me Foyer is today’s destination of choice, The Reading Room. You wouldn’t know that it was there, if you didn’t know that it was there...
