If we know one thing it’s this: London has its fair share of absolutely stonkingly fabulous hotel restaurants. For what seemed like an eternity, most appeared so intimidating you dare not step inside them unless you were a hotel guest – but over the past few years (that Covid pandemic aside), all of that has changed. How so? Well, the hotels have clocked on to the fact that the Insta-craze is here to stay with most tempting Londoners (and visitors to the capital) with photogenic spreads, dreamy interiors and makeovers LA starlets can only dream of. There’s also the fact that London is home to some of the biggest culinary household names and gastronomic magicians the world has to offer: Alain Ducasse, Heston Blumenthal, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Hélène Darroze and more.
Whether you’re looking to spoil yourself, find the perfect dinner for two, or just want a good night out with friends; with cuisine that has no borders or limits, from Italian to French and everything else in between, here’s our pick of London’s best and finest hotel restaurants.
