Not to be confused with the Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell and its stellar bar the Zetter Townhouse Cocktail Lounge, the hotel’s neighbouring sister, The Zetter Hotel, is home to this ground-floor restaurant, lounge and bar. The curved wall of windows looks out onto St John’s Square and its shape is mirrored by a black marble-topped bar which sweeps across the room. The all-day menu starts with sharing boards of British charcuterie and cheese (from Androuet in Spitalfields), followed by European standards such as burrata with heritage tomatoes and shellfish cocktails. Larger grill options include West Country sirloin steaks, fish of the day and cheese burgers, while things get serious when it comes to wine: an extensive collection kicks off with English sparkling by the glass and wines on tap, followed by a globetrotting list which includes the chance to sample snifters of finer wines, thanks to a Coravin. Club Zetter’s delicious Sunday roast underlines its role as a great value all-rounder.
