The Blakemore Hyde Park Hotel is a stunning, four-star establishment in one of London's most sought-after post codes, just around the corner from Hyde Park. From its beautiful, creamy facade to the elegant decor inside, this is a truly special place if planning a celebration meal with friends or family.
The hotel's main dining experience is The Terrace Restaurant and as you can imagine, has the most gorgeous terrace space for when the weather is fine. Sit on comfortable lounge chairs amongst period architectural details like ornate pillars and awning, looking out onto a classic West London street.
Of course, while the alfresco area is perfect for the summer, there's also a beautiful inside restaurant and bar, boasting distinguished design details like booth seating, atmospheric lighting and metallic tones. Here, you can enjoy the main and afternoon tea menus, alongside a fabulous selection of cocktails.
Speaking of which, the everyday menu offers a mix of fresh, tasty starters such as Greek salad, smoked salmon on Melba toast and chicken three ways including Peri Peri, barbeque and sweet chilli. Moving onto mains and you'll find classics like a hearty beef burger with cheese, all the usual toppings and thick-cut chips, as well as grilled sirloin steak and fish and chips.
While for dessert, it's all about classic English puddings such as Brandley apple pie, bread and butter pudding and lemon tart. We love that while the menu has plenty of international influences throughout, the sweet treats are firmly planted in the UK.
If in the mood for another English-rooted passtime, you can also book for the afternoon tea. Start with a selection of finger sandwiches like smoked salmon and cucumber and cream cheese, before enjoying scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. And, finally, chocolate brownie, lemon drizzle cake and strawberries dipped in chocolate.
