One of London’s most Instagrammable restaurants can be found on the ground floor of The Bloomsbury Hotel. Ever since the hotel made the wise decision to convert its terrace into a stunning restaurant, Dalloway Terrace has been attracting the attention of everyone from foodies to influencers to film crews. Its floral façade is the thing that it's become most famous for, boasting a spell-binding display of seasonal flowers that adorn its walls and hang over diners while they eat. This floral installation changes throughout the year, transforming from a pretty display of pastel colours in the summer, to a cosy show of autumnal shades and fairy lights during the colder months (don’t worry, there are heaters).
Dalloway Terrace is open all day for brunch, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and drinks, although reservations are recommended if you want to bag a table. The all-day menu features a wealth of globally-inspired dishes and daily-changing specials including seared tuna nicoise with summer beans, Ortiz anchovy and black olives, prawn linguine with tomatoes, chilli and lemon, miso-glazed black cod with king oyster mushrooms and sticky jasmine rice and steak frites.
There’s a vegetarian and vegan menu for those looking to swerve the meat, as well as a brunch offering served only on weekends. Look out for things like an oak smoked salmon poppy seed bagel with chive cream cheese and house pickle and buttermilk pancakes with crispy bacon, blueberries and maple syrup.
Dalloway Terrace also offers a seasonal cocktail menu for those simply looking for a charming spot to catch-up over a drink. The main drinks list also includes a generous choice of Champagne and English sparkling wine, as well as wines, spirits, beer and cider and non-alcoholic ‘wellness drinks’.
