I was lucky enough to be given vouchers for Sketch for a birthday present - the voucher is a work of art in itself! Having considered all the options in the various rooms, we decided to splash out and eat in the 2 Michelin starred Lecture Room. We were ushered upstairs into the quirky deco-esque splendour, seated and offered drinks... More

Went for drinks with my mother and my sister when she was in town. Excellent wine selection, truly an authentic and interactive venue - go to the bathroom, trust me! London at its finest, which of course comes with a price tag. Only minus, our waiter was quite arrogant.

You could not pick a more elegant, artistic, and dynamic spot. Make sure to ask for a tour after the meal (it's about 5 minutes, you have time). You'll want to see all the rooms & get some history on this amazing building. We came for lunch on a Thursday at noon. We were shown up to the Lecture Room... More

Loved the food, service and ambience. My favourite part were the egg toilets!! And the bread at the Lecture room... if you're feeling like you have £100 PP to spend and want a special experience, go here!

The staff is very nice. The decor is modern, artsy, engaging and the food and tea (and desserts) are amazing. We ate their twice during our one week trip to London.

Great food, fantastic service, and a great atmosphere. We chose the lunch menu and the food, the starters especially, was fantastic. When we did have a complaint the staff went above and beyond to accommodate, and the service more than made up for it. Would definitely return!

I had high expectations of this two Michelin star restaurant. The service and ambience was 5 star. The quality of the wine was very good. The food was a little disappointing. The Sea Garden first course was very good indeed as was the lobster. The cocette surprised me with its texture but was very nice. The white asparagus course did... More

We were bowled over by our 3 course lunch with wine. First, the theatrical darkened entry way sets the stage for the colorful high-ceiling dining room. Three course is an understatement as we started with 4 canapés including a soup, parmagean almond balls, a bright red daikon radish cube with Campari, a pear and Gouda bite, a chilled lime gelatin...

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
