SquareMeal Review of
Serpentine Bar & Kitchen
As you might guess from the name, this Benugo-run outfit boasts a glorious location by the water’s edge; the terrace has blinding views of bobbing pedalos on the lake, while floor-to-ceiling
windows maximise the vistas from inside. The handsome dining area offers nods to in-vogue ‘vintage’ in the form of fringed table lamps, a baby grand piano & stripped wooden tables, while framed
Polaroids of the Royal Parks & London museums line the walls. The clattering open kitchen serves hungry families, tourists & park-goers with all-out breakfasts, a fine spread of cakes
(including orange & almond loaf), wood-fired pizzas, & big plates of grilled lobster with garlic butter & chips. On summer evenings, barbecues & the pop-up Serpentine gin van draw
city dwellers to Hyde Park’s greenery.
