SquareMeal Review of
Butler's Restaurant at the Chesterfield Mayfair
A grand hotel dining room that befits this elegant Regency-style hotel, Butlers exudes the air of a traditional private club rather than anything brash or glitzy. Calm, efficient service accentuates its luxurious vibe. Guests are often residents of the hotel, but there are plenty of locals who avail themselves of the total reliability of the restaurant, relishing chef Ben Kelliher’s clean modern British cooking with global overtones. Breakfast covers all the bases, from croissants to eggs Benedict via porridge oats with whisky. Come lunch and dinner, there’s Forman’s smoked salmon, classic steaks and arguably London’s best Dover sole – for those who like their cooking straightforward. More adventurous diners are rewarded with starters such as scallops accompanied by Jerusalem artichokes, Granny Smith apple and hazelnut, plus a pulled-pork croquette, followed by mains of herb-crusted loin of lamb with slow-cooked shoulder, a potato and goats’ cheese terrine and shallot and ale purée.
Traditional fish & chips with a twist £48 for 2 or £64 including a pint or glass of wine
Glass of wine is house white wine.
