The Alfred Tennyson was, until August 2015, called The Pantechnicon Rooms. The review below refers to the venue under this name. Time Out food and drink editors.
This grand old spot was once a repository for works of art, stored in a high-ceilinged space behind Doric columns. Faithfully restored, it’s now flooded with natural light and lined with oak tables and leather chairs – a place for art dealers in smart, stripy shirts to entertain and network over braised pork belly or saddle of Devon lamb.
There’s also an upstairs dining room with a slightly more contemporary feel. The ground-floor area is bookended by a bar, where Adnams is the standout beer.
A 15-strong cocktail list includes a Moscow Mule with Belvedere vodka, while the wine list covers most bases, beginning with a Hungarian pinot grigio and a Languedoc merlot.
The relaxed ground floor bar is the place to be for a quick lunch or supper with friends and family. On the weekends, our brunch menu runs from 9am-4pm alongside classic roasts available all day Sunday. Fine ales, premium wines and house created cocktails all form part of our drinks offering.
Impeccably decorated, the first floor dining room provides an intimate setting for business or pleasure, with open fires and large sash windows overlooking Motcomb Street. To make a first floor dining reservation, please call 020 7730 6074.
The Dining Room, The Boardroom and The Loft Bar all provide an array of options for hosting a private dinner or corporate celebration. Please get in touch with our events team, who will endeavour to make any event you are planning a great success. Contact Marine on 020 7034 5422 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you.
