SquareMeal Review of Long Bar at Sanderson

Bronze Award

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.

Food and drinks are good, generous portion, fashionable environment, however service can be a little slow during busy times.

The Long Bar for me serves a purpose fairly well as somewhere to have a quick drink prior to dinner but as a destination seems to lack something – although something I can't quite put my finger on. It's buzzy and full of beautiful people (usually), great cocktails and good people watching, everything you need really so I'm at a loss as to why I don't really like it. Perhaps it feels to me as a watered down version of the Purple Bar at the Sanderson? Anyway I'll keep visiting as a springboard before moving on but if you are looking for somewhere to spend a longer time I'd recommend charming your way into the Purple Bar or heading elsewhere.
