Situated within the Royal Garden Hotel, Origin is the perfect destination for a luxurious meal in a refined setting. Serving lunch, dinner, a weekend brunch and a stellar Sunday roast, locals and visitors alike can drop by anytime for a dining experience of the highest standard. The dining room itself is a light and airy space with comfortable seating, plentiful natural light and views overlooking Kensington Gardens.

The menu at Origin is designed around the best seasonal British produce, and the team boasts a relationship with premium suppliers including Aubrey Allen, the Royal household’s preferred butcher. Expect an array of classic yet extravagant British dishes devised by acclaimed executive chef John Serhal, who boasts a lengthy career in luxury hotels and Michelin starred restaurants across London.

The a la carte offering changes frequently but can include starters like a foraged wild mushroom tart with black garlic, parmesan and nori, confit duck with bitter leaves and cherry, and Origin’s signature Caesar salad with Norfolk chicken. Mains are hearty and satisfying like loin of venison with parsnip, pear, kale and spiced jus, and its signature shepherd’s pie, made with 16-hour braised Welsh lamb shoulder, cheddar mash, and rosemary gravy. Vegetable based dishes are given equal thought here at Origin with mains including a salt baked swede with turnip, truffle, almond and chilli.

If you fancy a taste of what Origin has to offer at a more wallet friendly price point, take advantage of the excellent value set lunch menu available Monday to Friday which offers a selection of its most popular dishes.

There is an ardent focus on putting British produce in the spotlight here, and this extends to the beverage list, with all alcohol being sourced from the UK. Enjoy a bottle of Kent sparkling wine, rumoured to match up to French labels, or try signature cocktails which change seasonally.
