SquareMeal Review of
The Drawing Rooms at the Ampersand Hotel
Set on the ground floor of the new-look Ampersand Hotel (originally built in 1888 as a ‘boutique’ hideaway), the Drawing Rooms provide all sorts of opportunities for business or pleasure. Sip a
glass of fizz before dinner from the Champagne trolley or dip into the list of cocktails; alternatively drop by for a light lunch of heritage tomatoes with purple basil and goats’ curd or wild
fennel and green tomato tart. Best of all, take advantage of the beautiful patisserie lounge for afternoon tea in a luxurious setting of oversized armchairs, pastel colours and striking artwork
inspired by Kensington’s world-renowned museums and galleries. Enjoy high-quality coffee brands (including the Honduras organic blend with ‘notes of wine gums, rose petals and caramel’) or choose
from the extensive tea selection (whole camomile flowers, perhaps).
