The Sanderson hotel is currently closed but due to reopen in 2022
At the dawn of the millennium, the Long Bar’s glowing onyx island counter was the see-and-be-seen hub of an impossibly swanky, Philippe Starck-designed hotel lounge, propped up by every Cool Britannia gossip column fixture worth quoting. Times change, and fickle fashionistas have flocked off to the ‘next big thing’, but we still carry a torch for The Sanderson's period-piece bar. Party with nature-inspired drinks including Black Bison (vodka, Chambord, blackberry, lime) and Love & Rockets (gin, prosecco, strawberry, elderflower, rocket), while crispy pig's head, grilled octopus and salmon scoth eggs are among the modish bar bites.
