The Withdrawing Room


The Withdrawing Room is a light and elegant setting for an informal meeting, leisurely lunch, afternoon tea or an opportunity to relax over a drink with friends. Sumptuously decorated with hand-painted trompe l’oeil marbling and chandeliers, it offers a luxurious yet relaxing ambience, complemented by a sumptuous tea collection, premium coffees and light bites.

The Scene Stealer Cream Tea

For those who love a little theatre with their cream tea, our mixologists present The Scene Stealer, a tantalizing fusion of Bombay Bramble, lemon, raspberry and Maraschino cherry, topped with white apricot air foam and blackberry dust and presented on a bed of dry ice for the most dramatic of cocktail experiences. Served alongside freshly baked scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, this is the perfect afternoon treat.

The Library Bar

One of the Capital's most celebrated cocktail destinations, The Library Bar – distinguished by its outstanding mixology and venerable "liquid museum" of spirits – offers the warm and intimate atmosphere of a private club accompanied by a vibrant ambiance that makes it a popular choice with Knightsbridge and Belgravia's well-heeled locals as well as hotel guests.
