Square Meal Review of American Bar at The Stafford Kempinski ?

A home-from-home for Americans in the 1930s, this gloriously cluttered Churchillian lounge became unofficial HQ to the French Resistance in exile during World War II. Today, the bar’s pièce de résistance is the gin martini – prepared comme il faut by soigné staff who are, by tradition, French. The price of these flawless drinks (£15) also includes irresistibly addictive candied savoury nibbles. Wine buffs have plenty of options by the glass, and there’s some stonkingly classy claret for those with very deep pockets. Bar food is high on Bullingdon boy appeal: order mulligatawny soup, hot buttered salmon and shrimps on toast, pork chop and mash or wild-mushroom risotto, followed by Cambridge burnt cream. Enjoy cigars on the terrace overlooking a cobbled mews, or peruse the bar’s memorabilia and photographs of film stars, statesmen, royals and other illustrious guests.
