SquareMeal Bronze Awards

SquareMeal Bronze Awards are given to ‘very good’ restaurants and bars that are stand-outs within their neighbourhoods. They are an award given to only a few establishments and are an assessment of the full experience: food – first and foremost – combined with ambience, service and value. SquareMeal’s Awards reflect a combination of professional critic opinion and current feedback from SquareMeal users/diners. As such, they reveal at a glance how strongly SquareMeal is recommending a restaurant or bar.

Updated on 04 December 2018

London is full of fantastic restaurants, meaning that choosing the right restaurant for you can sometimes prove to be quite a task. The opinion of those who have already experienced a restaurant can often be of help; therefore Square Meal has awarded stars ranging from one to three to some of London’s best restaurants as a guide to how good we believe these London restaurants to be.  All of the London restaurants featured in this list have been awarded 1 star by the Square Meal team, meaning that they are considered as London restaurants of a very high standard.

Not every London restaurant features in the Square Meal star categories, meaning those that do are considered to be some of the finest in London. If you can’t find what you are looking for here in the Square Meal 1 star guide you may want to also take a look at London restaurants with 2 Square Meal stars and London restaurants with 3 Square Meal stars.

Every one of the London restaurants with 1 Square Meal star featured in Square Meal’s list of the 1 Square Meal star London restaurants have been tried and tested by critics and our own customers so check out the reviews with Square Meal today. Each Square Meal listing features an independent review, as well as reviews from those who have visited, together with unique special offers such as free drinks and discounts.

Bolton

Bolton's

Bolton House, 13 Cullum Street, Fenchurch Street, London, EC3M 7JJ

If you have grown tired of the London restaurant scene’s need to constantly outdo itself with ever zanier concepts and oh-so-modern dishes (deconstructed Earl Grey cheesecake, anyone?), consider Bolton’s for your next meal out - a resolutely traditional restaurant which will embrace you like a warm hug from an old friend.

Found in the heart of the City of London, the subterranean dining room at Bolton’s is joyfully old-school, complete with a deep red carpet, tables dressed with white tablecloths and oil paintings depicting historical figures or pastoral scenes. While the space feels quintessentially British, the focus of the kitchen is actually Italian cuisine - fastidiously sourced produce lies at the core of the a la carte, which is replete with staple Italian dishes that in some instances, have been given contemporary updates.

The offering kicks off with breakfast, served from 8am, when early risers can tuck into a full English (vegetarian and vegan versions available), eggs any style or toasted baps filled with the likes of bacon and sausage. For the more virtuous, there is smashed avocado on toast, which can be washed down with a freshly blitzed smoothie.

Later in the day, the a la carte takes centre stage, offering a whole host of comforting Italian fare. Begin with starters such as deep-fried calamari or scallops topped with bacon and spinach, before moving on to indulgent pasta dishes such as lobster linguine or pappardelle topped with meatballs, tomato sauce and a touch of cream. Carnivorous types meanwhile, can enjoy veal, beef or chicken cooked various ways, padded out with side orders of sauteed mushrooms or a mixed leaf salad.

Bolton’s wine menu is lengthy, but well considered, featuring bottles sourced from across Italy, as well as varieties from Spain, France and Portugal. For those who don’t fancy wine, there are spirits, brandies and non-alcoholic juices.

Blueprint Café

Blueprint Café

28 Shad Thames, Bermondsey, London, SE1 2YD

The Blueprint café offers stunning views, from its large floor to ceiling glass window, of the Thames and Tower Bridge. It is superbly located in Bermondsey, surrounded by the hubbub of south London. The café also serves up some amazing British fare to go with that view of the London skyline.

The interior of the restaurant is sleek and sophisticated, with minimalist table settings and décor throughout the restaurant, to really let the stunning view take centre stage, the London skyline makes for a great backdrop to any dining occasion at the Blueprint Café. The dining spot is opening every day from noon, for lunch and dinner. Start off the resplendent affair with a delicious cocktail, such as the fairytale martini featuring Tanqueray gin, cranberry, and elderflower.

The menu starts of strop with shellfish minestrone and an aged beef tartare, which whet the appetite for more delicious eats to come. The main courses may see you dining on Gloucester old spot pork chops served with caramelised onion, potato puree, and jus. Or for a vegetarian option, the mushroom pearl barley risotto is a great choice, while the roast duck is a sumptuous affair complemented by braised red endives and sharp pink grapefruit.

For afters, settle in with a wholesome carrot cake or an apple and pecan pie while the view of the skyline shifts to night-mode and the city is lit up. Order from the extensive wine list, which features a European-led mix of sparkling, white, and red wines, plus there are some sweet wines to go with dessert.

This D&D restaurant is a superb choice for a variety of dining occasions from impressive dates to dining out with friends to celebrate a birthday. You can’t go wrong with seating either, as the restaurant offers panoramic views throughout the restaurant, guaranteeing a side of London’s skyline with your meal.

Oscar at the Charlotte Street Hotel

Charlotte Street Hotel, 15-17 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1RJ

Based in the smart Charlotte Street Hotel, expect to be greeted by doorman as you arrive at the Oscar bar and restaurant. The restaurant is all about serving top quality, seasonal food in a fun and colourful setting.

The front of the hotel is impressive enough by itself, with the whole ground floor façade painted mint green from head to toe, contrasting with the pale brick wall of the rest of the building above; a huge union jack hangs from above the door signalling that this is an old-school British hotel.

However, once you head into the Oscar bar and restaurants, prepare to be greeted by waves of colour and huge pieces of modern art which will grab your attention as soon as you walk in. The restaurant maintains a wonderful balance of being not overly casual but also not taking itself too seriously, making it a great spot to enjoy a meal with friends and family alike.

The a la carte menu consists of classic British dishes with a few influences from elsewhere in Europe. For starters you might go for the game terrine with hedgerow chutney, and toasted sourdough, or perhaps the decadent lobster cocktail. Main courses range from venison loin with clapshot, Brussels sprouts and bacon, to black cod, served with bok choy and Furikake rice. There’s also a separate pasta section if you’re feeling like something a little lighter, with options such as an oxtail ragu pappardelle on offer.

The tempting dessert menu features dishes such as a white chocolate fondant, and chestnut bread and butter pudding. There is also both an extensive breakfast and brunch menu on offer which is largely focused around egg-based classics, and an afternoon tea menu too. This is all accompanied by a suitably impressive wine list as well as a long list of signature cocktails.

Le Café du Marché

Le Café du Marché

22 Charterhouse Square, Barbican, London, EC1M 6DX

It is an unfortunate truth that half of restaurants close within their first year of trading, so there is always something extra special about dining out somewhere that has stood the test of time. Enter long-standing French restaurant Le Cafe du Marche, which was founded by Charlie Graham-Wood way back in 1986 and remains an independent, family-run restaurant to this day.

Le Cafe du Marche is housed in a converted warehouse, built on the foundations of the coach houses for the neighbouring Charterhouse and once a storage warehouse for St Barts. Much of the building’s original features remain in tact, although the dining room here certainly doesn’t feel outdated or industrial, with Le Cafe du Marche managing to seamlessly blend its more rustic elements with romance and whimsy - think crisp white tablecloths, wicker chairs, potted plants and plenty of natural daylight (come nightfall, the room is romantically lit by candlelight). Add to that specials written up on blackboards and smartly dressed waiters and it would be easy to fool yourself into thinking you are dining out in rural France, rather than the heart of the Square Mile.

As for the menu here, expect a regularly changing offering which makes the most of seasonal ingredients and has a provincial French accent. The menu is a set offering, with diners able to choose between two or three courses; to begin your meal, you might order a warm bowl of soup or pate de campagne with rhubarb chutney served atop toasted sourdough. Main courses meanwhile (all served with frites and green salad) could encompass the market fish of the day or English rack of lamb with wild mushrooms and dauphinoise potatoes.

To finish, discover the dessert of the day or end on a savoury note with a cheese board. If you prefer liquid afters, check out Le Cafe du Marche’s carefully considered list of regional French wines.

Manicomio Chelsea

Manicomio Chelsea

85 Duke of York Square, Chelsea, London, SW3 4LY

Long-standing Italian restaurant Manicomio Chelsea (there’s a sibling site in the City) is a fixture of Chelsea’s Duke of York Square and well-known among locals as a reliably good place to eat. Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, Manicomio Chelsea can cater to almost every culinary whim, with well-drilled staff and a warm atmosphere coming as standard.

The dining room here is a sleek and sophisticated affair, complete with navy blue walls, brown leather banquette seating and heavily dressed tables. As for the menu, expect a short but well considered list of classic and contemporary Italian dishes, primed for comfort and indulgence (although there are a few more virtuous offerings for the health conscious too). To begin your meal, order antipasti such as homemade focaccia, a warm bowl of seasonal soup or London burrata with grilled English asparagus and yuzu miso dressing.

For your pasta course, choose between dishes such as rigatoni with native lobster, tomato, chilli and garlic or potato gnocchi with Tuscan sausage and wild fennel ragu. Meat and fish options meanwhile include a classic chicken Milanese with grilled lettuces, runner beans and a Parmesan and caesar dressing, as well as char-grilled yellowfin tuna accompanied by a Panzanella salad. You can also pad out your meal with side orders including zucchini fritti and rosemary al forno potatoes.

For pudding, tuck into traditional Italian desserts of gelato or tiramisu, or cater to savoury preferences with an artisan British cheese board to share between the table. For those who prefer liquid afters, be sure to peruse Manicomio Chelsea’s vast selection of European wines, while those who diners who favour other alcoholic beverages won’t miss out either thanks to Manicmio’s selection of classic cocktails sitting alongside house signatures, plus a range of craft beers and pale ales too.

OXO Tower Brasserie

OXO Tower Brasserie

Oxo Tower Wharf, Barge House Street, Southwark, London, SE1 9PH

Offering stunning views from high up the iconic OXO tower, the OXO Tower Brasserie serves a fantastic selection of dishes, in a fun and relaxed setting. With a daily live music line up as well as an impressive open kitchen. During warmer months there is also a beautiful terrace looking right over London where you can enjoy the modern European menu.


Inside, the décor is simple, with tables and chairs packed into every corner of the dining room. The glass walls mean that despite this, the brasserie maintains a bright and airy feel to it, and they also mean that even if you’re inside, you can still be constantly taking in the breath-taking views.


A broad all-day food menu focuses on championing local produce and changes every so often according to the season. Starters include a classic French caramelised onion soup with croutons, and beef carpaccio, with pickled shitake mayonnaise, wasabi, crispy lotus root, and a watercress and spring onion salad. If you’re wanting something more Italian in feel, why not try the burrata with grape and endive salad, golden raisin and balsamic dressing, and crispbread, or the red wine braised beef cheek open ravioli with mushroom mousse, and truffle cheese.


Main courses range from seared scallops served with serrano ham, to coffee rub lamb, served with truffle mash and cranberry jus. If you’re still hungry, there’s also a lovely selection of puddings on offer such as treacle tart with a blood orange sorbet, as well as a Pina colada sorbet. The OXO tower brasserie aim to cater for every need which is why there is also a separate vegan and vegetarian menu available, as well as a short but sweet children’s menu.
In terms of drinks, you can select a bottle of wine from the neighbouring restaurants extensive list. There are also plenty of cocktails, beers and soft drinks to pick from.

Benihana Chelsea

Benihana Chelsea

77 King's Road, Chelsea, London, SW3 4NX

One of two London sites for the global teppanyaki chain (the second is in Piccadilly), Benihana Chelsea finds itself in a subterranean space on the famed King’s Road.

The Benihana group has found success across the world with its ‘food theatre’ style and the same is true of its London branches, which are particularly popular for large groups, birthday parties and gaggles of tourists. The dining room here is slightly moodier than its Chelsea counterpart, with deep red walls and dark wood tables and chairs giving the space a grown-up feel. Of course, the main attraction is the hibachi grills found at the centre of each table and overseen by energetic chefs in red hats who wow the crowds with their slicing, dicing and chopping skills (you might see some occasional juggling of ingredients too).

Benihana Chelsea opens daily for both lunch and dinner - at lunchtime, you can enjoy dishes such as yakisoba noodles topped with tiger prawns and chicken, or a sushi and sashimi combination. If you have a bit more time to spare, instead opt for the ‘traditional lunch’ which begin with rice and vegetables, before moving on to your choice of chicken, salmon, prawn or steak all cooked in front of you.

By the time the evening rolls around, Benihana Chelsea’s atmosphere ramps up a notch, with groups and families with young children (kids menu available) settling in for a night of fun and theatrics. Dinners begin with sushi rolls and small plates such as edamame beans and prawn tempura, before moving on to the luxe likes of sirloin steak, miso black cod or Wagyu beef. To finish, treat yourself to green tea ice cream and almond chocolate cake, or opt for liquid afters by exploring Benihana’s tempting list of wines, beers, sake and fun specialty cocktails.

Joe Allen

2 Burleigh Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7PX

Located in the heart of Theatreland, this American restaurant was first opened in 1977, as a sibling to the original restaurant in New York. The restaurant quickly became famous, as it was a project led by actors and producers eager to seduce punters to their shows. Joe Allen’s or the ‘West End’s Canteen’ is no stranger to a famous face, with many a celebrity dining at the restaurant. Plus, with its great location, situated in Covent Garden, in close proximity to major theatre venues, it’s a no brainer to have a pre- or post- theatre dinner here whether you’re an audience or cast member.

The interior of the restaurant is filled with movie memorabilia and pictures of famous faces, and is dimly-lit with plush furnishings. The mood is buzzy and exciting, in part due to the well-stocked bar which is a main feature of the room, lined with hundreds of bottles of booze.

The main dining menu offers an authentic selection of north American classics from hearty rounds of burger sliders to juicy sirloin steaks serves with French fries and a peppercorn sauce. The restaurant also does a fantastic, moreish smoked beef frankfurter hot dog replete with all the toppings, while an oak smoked baby back rib platter with Asian slaw and sweet potato fries will satisfy all your BBQ cravings. The restaurant also does a great brunch menu featuring fluffy Belgian waffles topped with crispy fried chicken a la American, and offers more regular dishes of breakfast buns and avocado poached eggs. Don’t skimp on dessert, the apple and mixed berry crumble is a delight, and the pecan pie goes nicely with a hot cup of coffee.

If you’re planning on sighting a celebrity, stick around for innovative cocktails such as salted caramel martini or pink squirrel featuring crème de noyaux, white cacao, and cream.

Wheelers Oyster Bar

Wheelers Oyster Bar

8 High Street, Whitstable, Kent, CT5 1BQ

Wheelers Oyster Bar is the oldest restaurant in Whitstable and has bucket loads of charm to match. Based in a bright pink and blue painted townhouse on Whitstable’s High Street, the restaurant serves a small ever-changing menu of seafood dishes, cooked using fresh produce which has been caught by the local fisherman. If you’re looking for a traditional, harbour-side seafood meal, look no further than Wheelers.

Whilst from the outside Wheelers Oyster Bar looks rather like an old-fashioned sweet shop with the bright colours of the façade contrasting with the plainer buildings on either side, the interior ia far more rustic. The tiny dining room features a fireplace at one end, nautical-themed paintings and ornaments on the walls, and mismatching chairs around the tables, giving Wheelers Oyster Bar more of a cottagey ambience.

The a la carte menu always features five options for each course and the dishes on offer vary based on the season and availability. Everything on the menu is cooked completely fresh by the team whether that means baking bread or making ice cream, meaning that there’s a lot more to Wheelers Oyster Bar than just the fish. To begin your meal however, there is of course always a huge variety of wonderful oysters available.

Starters on offer can vary from a pan fried crab cake served alongside a harissa, crab and lime mayonnaise, to caramelised scallops served with apple sauce, bacon, and black pudding sauce. When it comes to main courses, options might include a lobster lasagne, or perhaps monkfish baked in honey, buttermilk and saffron with a prawn and aubergine curry. Puddings can range from a caramel tart with millionaires shortbread ice cream, to an apple and blackberry soufflé.

Wheelers doesn't have an alcohol license, meaning that you can bring your own along, and there’s no corkage fee either.

Two Fat Ladies City Centre

Two Fat Ladies City Centre

118a Blythswood Street, Glasgow, G2 4EG

First opened in 2005, this intimate restaurant was the first site for the Two Fat Ladies restaurant group, which then expanded in 2007, taking over the site of long-standing Glaswegian restaurant The Buttery.

At this branch, now known as Two Fat Ladies City Centre, you can expect to be greeted by a compact and cosy dining room which hints at the seafood themed menu from the moment that you walk through the door. The dining room may be flooded with natural light, but it takes its inspiration from the dark depths of the ocean, featuring eye-catching motifs of sea life and coral reefs along the walls, as well as metal work on the windows which mimics fish moving through the ocean’s waves. There is banquette seating which runs along one side of the room, while regular tables are flanked by high-back stools wrapped in a brown leather finish.

On the menu at Two Fat Ladies City Centre, you will find an all-day offering which kicks off with brunch from 9am. Start your day off on the right foot (or should that be fin?) with the likes of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toasted sourdough or eggs benedict served atop a toasted English muffin. At lunch and dinner, the menu evolves to welcome more hearty offerings, mostly focused around seafood but with a few international flourishes too.

Fish courses to enjoy include pan-fried sea bream with lemon and chive sauteed new potatoes, or pan seared scallops with sage butter, roast pumpkin puree and a parmesan cream. Other main courses meanwhile include an indulgent mac ‘n’ cheese topped with pancetta or a Thai seafood salad featuring king prawn and squid, plus a medley of tongue-tingling spices.

To round off your supper, you can treat yourself to one of the Two Fat Ladies desserts - think a rocky road chocolate brownie or a spiced apple and walnut cake.

Koba

Koba

11 Rathbone Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1NA

Korean barbecue restaurant Koba is a long-standing fixture of Fitzrovia’s restaurant scene, having thrilled diners since opening its doors in 2005. The restaurant is unique in that its dining room is smarter than people have come to expect from barbecue restaurants, while a refurbishment in 2016 helped to give the space a little bit of extra sheen.

Of course, the main appeal of dining here is the chance to practise your skills on the grill and have a go at cooking your own lunch or dinner, but there are plenty more dishes on the menu to entertain you before you get to that stage. Appetisers at Koba include a daily-changing soup and a squid and seaweed salad, while you can pad out your table barbecue with assorted kimchi or a portion of steamed rice. Drinks wise, expect a succinct but impressive list of wines from around Europe (with a few international flourishes too), alongside tempting house cocktails and a few Korean beers.

The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, and if you are flying solo at lunchtime, we would recommend nabbing a spot at the bar. Koba’s lunch menu includes stir-fried noodles topped with chicken, vegetables or seafood, while you can also enjoy steamed rice topped with the likes of spicy pork and grilled mackerel.

If you are short on time, you will also be glad to know that some of Koba’s menu is available to take away. Among the dishes that you can bring back home or to the office are a Korean-style pancake topped with seafood and spring onion, or a kimchi and pork stew on a bed of steamed rice.

Koba is also a viable option when it comes to dining out in a group. For parties of eight people or more, there is a set menu available which takes away the burden of having to order for multiple people.

Gaucho Hampstead

Gaucho Hampstead

64 Heath Street, Hampstead, London, NW3 1DN

Gaucho’s Hampstead location is a source of joy for north Londoners looking for a respite of Argentinian steak indulgence in the quaint neighbourhood. Just around the corner from Hampstead underground station; this restaurant is wonderfully situated close to the beautiful green forested expanse of the heath, and everything else that the charming village has to offer. The mainline rail station is also nearby, making this a super easy restaurant to get to, from public transportation links.

Come to Gaucho for any and all occasions, from special birthday steak treats to casual Sunday family outings for a sumptuous roast dinner. The restaurant features a stunning courtyard terrace replete with a traditional Asado fire pit, which is used all year round. The terrace can be booked out as an event space to comfortable fit up to 40 people. You can look forward to delicious barbeques in the summer or warm up by the fire in the winter, as you feast on hearty prime cuts of beef.

There are several menus to choose on depending on your mood, from the classic a la carte options to sharing platters for the whole table. You can expect well-sourced Argentinian, free range premium Black Angus meats from the Pampas province. The whole experience feels wonderfully authentic from the starters of buttery, crumbly beef empanadas and fresh ceviches to the great selection of meats.

The chateaubriand or the Gaucho sampler is superb for sharing, or for when you can’t make your mind up and want a bit of everything. This modern take on the traditional Argentinian way of enjoying life, is rather refreshing. Polish off the indulgent dining affair with a dulce de leche inspired dessert. The wine list is also impressively one of the largest collections of Argentinian booze outside of the country or you can bring your own, with no corkage fee on Mondays.

Gaucho Canary

29 Westferry Circus, Canary Wharf, London, E14 8RR

Gaucho Canary Wharf is spectacularly situated within the financial district on the banks of the river Thames. Gaze out at the panoramic view from the pretty terrace or cosy up inside, with its sleek continental interiors, the lights of the city brightening the horizon at night. Watch the boats go by as you sit up top amongst the cowhides.

Enjoy a business lunch or a DJ hosted “Electric brunch”, whatever the occasion Gaucho has got something impressive up its sleeve. Come for a casual weekend dinner or host a formal steak affair, entertain friends with cocktails at the bar, or dine alfresco with a stunning view. The open kitchen is a real treat, where you can watch as the chefs expertly create a dish worthy of being Argentinian.

The menu is just as impressive as the view and location, if not more. There are several menus to choose from, depending on the mood and occasion. From canapes to festive menus, there’s even a children’s menu. The signature menu features all the Argentinian restaurant classics. For starters do try the beef empanadas or a zingy tuna ceviche with avocado mousse. The mains feature marbled Ancho Ribeye, tender Lomo, and succulent Sirloin with a strip of juicy crackling. For desserts, Dulce de leche reigns supreme with the cheese cakes and sticky toffee puddings.

Nearby you’ll find great links to the rest of London and whole host of sights and activities for a pre-steak adventure to work up an appetite. Otherwise take it all in, enjoy the views and relax with a group of friends, colleagues, or family at this superb restaurant. A premium docklands location, within close proximity to Canary Wharf and Heron Quays, Gaucho is perfect for the suits looking for a great dining experience with a delicious steak after work.

23-25 Davies Street, London, W1K 3DE

C London is the result of four generation of Italians, starting with Giuseppe Cipriani in 1932, who started out in the restaurant business in Venice with Harry’s Bar. The restaurant is a well-established institution in the heart of London that has welcomed high-class clientele from all around the world for years.

The Mayfair restaurant caters to a well-heeled audience with their outstanding range of Italian fare, set within a beautifully decorated interior. Inside the restaurant, the décor is sophisticated and chic, a time capsule of a grander time with plush furnishings and rich colour palette. C London is classy and timeless.

The menu features a great variety of Italian classics and specialties, with many borrowed from Cipriani’s original restaurant in Venice, Harry’s Bar. Plus there are a few internationally-inspired dishes such as the sashimi and Japanese dover sole, from the Yotto Selection.

There are several daily menus, however the dishes rarely change, to keep up with the authenticity of the establishment, so you can expect the likes of veal chop ala milenese, beef carpaccio, and steak tartare as starters. The range of ingredients in the dishes is impressive and luxurious too, such as imperial gold oscietra caviar, as the restaurant places great emphasis on sourcing stunning produce.

The main menu features plenty of freshly made pastas and pizzas, such as spinach and cheese cannelloni, bucatini cacio e pepe, pappardelle with veal cheeks, scampi ravioli, and many more exciting dishes. For secondi piattis, punters can dine on seabream with lemon and capers, lamb chops, and veal kidney, while the grill section delivers hearty rounds of wagyu beef and ribeye tagliata.

For dessert and wines, there is a lovely selection of puddings such as crema antica and a well-executed rendition of tiramisu, while the wine list heavily features Italian regional specialties in additional to well-sourced international bottles.

9 Conduit Street, London, London, W1S 2XG

A trip to Sketch is more of multi-sensory experience than a straightforward meal out and yet this venue is proving to sceptics that a restaurant can indeed carry both style and substance with Michelin awarding it three stars. The venue is divided between four separate restaurants and each boast their own uniquely breath-taking interiors that just beg to be photographed. The Mayfair restaurant is the brainchild of restauranteur Mourad Mazouz and esteemed chef Pierre Gagnaire who have honed in on the area’s affluent populous of party goers and thrill seekers who are always looking for the next best thing. The soft pastel pink interiors of The Gallery with its velvet banquette seating is a calm and distinctly feminine room, well suited to it’s principal offering of Afternoon Tea, served every day of the week from 11.30am – 4.30 pm. The offering is a traditional affair with a broad selection of teas to choose from or bubbles for those who prefer things more fancy! An assorted selection of finger sandwiches with fillings including coronation chicken, egg gougere, and truffle croque are followed by a scones with jam and cream and a selection of picture perfect petits gateaux. These delicate sweet treats include a mandarin Battenberg, Mont Blanc tart and pistachio choux. Guests will also be served a traditional Victoria sponge from the trolley.

However the venue also offers an a la carte menu too which is served until 2am for any night owls with midnight munchies. The food is largely modern European with some strong French influences. From the starters highlights include pan fried langoustines with green tea, yellow mango, fresh soya and dry apricots; and wild duck terrine with foie gras and onion marmalade and brioche with duck rillettes. Main courses are divided between vegetarian, fish and meat options including sole cooked a la Meunière accompanied by a potato puree with green curry spices and shiitake mushrooms ; lamb cutlets grilled with oregano, creamy polenta and Swiss chard served with a Provençale stew; and ravioli of sweet onion with juniper berries and lemon sabayon.
