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...

My first impression of the lecture room was that is was all a bit Wes Anderson and Grand Budapest Hotel. We had an 18:30 reservation which we were slightly late for. Still the first in there and to a selection of staff who were all attentive and slightly quirky. We had the tasting menu and were both full at the... More

Lunch at Sketch was definitely on our bucket list for our visit to London. The restaurant is incredible in every way as you'd expect from a two star Michelin restaurant. We arrived a little early and had a drink in the bar first. You want to experience everything about this restaurant so I would recommend going a little early. The... More

Recently visited The Lecture Room, Sketch and I could not fault a single thing. The staffs were extremely professional and attentive. The food was absolutely stunning, it is no doubt that chef Johannes is very talented. Overall the evening was astounding, it was one of the best meals I have had.

Stunning atmosphere. Excellent food. Impeccable service. Given how rarely I visit fine dining restaurants, I was nervous that the restaurant would seem stuffy. So I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the staff, and how relaxed and welcomed we felt. Some hotels and restaurants have a way of providing subtle hospitality that is hard to quantify, but you know... More

My wife wanted a quick look here but we ended up staying and having a cocktail or 3 🍸. The love was very different including the pods to go to the toilet in. I felt like Mork had just landed. Well worth a visit.

Yes it's expensive but it's a wonderful experience. The room is acoustically a delight - you can hear your companion yet a relaxed buzz. The food is excellent but it's the service and attention to detail that sets it apart. I'd say it's some of the best service I've known. Save up and go.

sketch Lecture Room & Library (not to be be confused with the gallery - pink room downstairs) is sectioned off from the main part of sketch to usher you in a world of food, service & care very worthy of its 2 awarded Michelin stars. We had scallops to start & the venison as a main. Both were cooked to... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
