My host generously offered a glass of champagne : Wilton's 275th anniversary cuvee (£14.50) as we studied the short but intriguing menu. I could not resist the Dressed Crab (£20.00) which...More

I was lucky enough to have dined in their private dining room. The service was impeccable, the food simple, but cooked perfectly and the wine pairings an absolute delight. Amazing!

Wiltons combines a modern philosophy on service with all that is traditionally British to create the perfect dining experience. If you are making a reservation for groups of 6 or more, please contact Wiltons directly. Should you have any special requests i.e birthday cakes or champagne, please advise Wiltons immediately upon making your reservation. We politely ask that gentlemen wear long sleeved shirts and long trousers, no sportswear or open toed sandals.
