The Petrichor restaurant is located on the first floor of The Cavendish Hotel in Piccadilly, directly behind Fortnum and Mason. It was nothing like I'd have expected; a bit old dated and small but nice and quite. We went for the three course set Menu with a glass of Prosecco for £28 each. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and... More

We went as a group of friends for dinner, the service was on point but the food was simply amazing. The bao was simply delightful. I will definitely be back & recommend this to my friends. A hidden gem

Petrichor at the Cavendish Hotel is a spacious first-floor room overlooking Jermyn Street. It is comfortable and pleasantly quiet for dining. The menu from Head Chef Glen Padiyar is modern European in style and his dishes all arrive looking very attractive on the plate. There are several set menus depending on how much you wish to indulge yourself but the... More

The restaurant was on the first floor in this tucked away hotel near st Jame's Square. I had a pre-theatre dinner here before and really enjoyed it. Hence when I spotted they were doing a 2 for 1 offer on their duke and duchess afternoon tea I quickly booked it. The afternoon tea set was served in two sections: first,... More

This was my second visit for tea at Petrichor in a year and my impressions from the first visit were more or less confirmed. It is a very central location as the Cavendish is just a few blocks from Piccadilly Circus. This time I got a seat in the lounge instead of the restaurant which was all to the good... More

I didn't know what to expect but had heard the food was very good. From the start the staff were exceptional introducing everything with their enthusiasm that was clear they had for working there. I had a collection of dishes and had certain flavours that were more of 'experiences' than just food. We all have our top 10 things in... More

I went to Petrichor with a group of friends. From the very beginning the staff was super attentive. We had a selection of dishes that we shared as we wanted to try as many dishes as possible. Every single one was to die for, from the delicate flavour of the scallops to the cod with avocado and taramasalata. The wagyu... More

I was staying at the hotel and thought I would try the associated restaurant rather than venture out. I was really pleased with the ambiance and also the varied menu. I went for the set menu which was great value at under £30 (including a glass of bubbles)! Nice service, good view and tasty food. Beetroot salad to start, cod... More

....seems to be an important feature at this smart restaurant in the heart of the West End. My Ham Hock terrine was decorated like the Sydney Opera House with slivers of cucumber.

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
