The Best Hotel Restaurants
The best hotel restaurants in London rise above a raft of soulless, depressing alternatives frequented invariably by miserable loners with one eye on their paltry expense account and the other on their phone, waiting on a call from home. Obviously not all hotel restaurants offer such a bleak insight into middle-management, with those listed below the kind of places diners will cross town for. If you’re lucky enough to be staying in one of the hotels themselves then you can simply amble downstairs to sample their wares but for most of us, a meal at one of the best hotel restaurants in London is expense enough, thanks very much.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, 66 Knightsbridge, Knighsbridge, London, SW1X 7LA
Heston Blumenthal’s brilliant restaurant at the Madarin Oriental Hotel is so good that it beat his three Michelin-starred Fat Duck in a recent, highfalutin awards ceremony. It’s an absolute bugger to get a table but if you can – or are prepared to wait – then you’ll be furnished with some very fine food indeed, with the ‘meat fruit’ the kind of thing to get yourself in a tizzy over.

Alyn Williams at The Westbury
The Westbury, Bond Street, Mayfair, London, W1S 2YF
Having headed up the kitchen at Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, Alyn Williams opened this splendid restaurant in 2011 and it keeps getting better. It’s a gorgeous looking spot, with some of the best service in town, but the food is every bit the match – especially if you’re a veggie.

CUT at 45 Park Lane
45 Park Lane, Mayfair, London, W1K 1PN
There’s a multitude of great places for steak these days and whilst Wolfgang Puck’s luxurious restaurant at 45 Park Lane might be eye-wateringly expensive, it remains right up there with the best steak restaurants in London. Cut was Puck’s first foray into Europe, and now it’s all too easy to see why he’s so hugely successful over in the States.

Galvin at Windows
London Hilton on Park Lane, 22 Park Lane, Mayfair, London, W1K 1BE
This restaurant at the top of the Hilton Park Lane is one that divides opinion somewhat, with many people suggesting it bamboozles people with its stunning views before serving food that doesn’t warrant the price. We think that’s a load of old nonsense though (as do the Michelin judges, incidentally) as every time we visit the food is every bit as spectacular as that particularly spectacular vista.

Helene Darroze at The Connaught
The Connaught Hotel, Carlos Place, Mayfair, London, W1K 2AL
Few London restaurants boast two Michelin stars but Helene Darroze’s phenomenally good spot at The Connaught in Mayfair is one of them. The French chef really does know her stuff and this place isn’t just one of the best hotel restaurants in London but, in our humble view, one of the best restaurants in London full stop. The Dover sole for two is particularly good but the desserts are things of exceptional beauty – so make sure you save room.

Angler Restaurant
South Place Hotel, Seventh Floor, 3 South Place, The City, London, EC2M 2AF
A relatively new addition to London, Angler sits above the chic, boutique South Place Hotel. The (Michelin starred) food is stunning, service just as good and the whole atmosphere one of the most pleasant in London. Highly recommended.
