Reasonable prices for a hotel bar in this part of town. Interior was comfortable and service was very good.

Linked to the park international hotel but open to the public, open until 1pm on the Monday I was there , friendly staff, a limited range of beers/ciders but it's a small bar, not a bad place for a few late night drinks but not really lively. Didn't try the food.

Amazing experience, international menu is excellent but the Thai food is some of the best in London. The service is personal and intimate, yet the restaurant is spacious and very comfortable with excellent seating. Safe to say, I am a regular!

CheckMate is a charming and friendly restaurant at the Park International Hotel on Gloucester Road.
The atmosphere is wonderful and the décor is great. And the food and drinks are worth a visit! Try the Pad Thai or the Garlic Chicken - equally delicious!
The staff are very friendly and chatty and makes sure you are well looked after.

Try it :-)
