Apparently, it was at this swanky Langham hotel dining room that afternoon tea was first served, more than 140 years ago. We've no reason to doubt them. It still proves a popular draw but it runs alongside a French-influenced menu conceived by head chef Chris King, in partnership with Michel Roux Jr and Albert Roux.
That means dishes such as salt-cod brandade tartelette served with a poached hen egg and a piquillo pepper dressing, saffron tagliatelle with artichokes, pine nuts and pied bleu mushroom, sea bream with sauce vierge and anya potatoes and grilled native lobster served with a Pernod butter.
Desserts include crême brûlée with strawberries marinated in elderflower, praline profiteroles with chocolate sauce and caramelised hazelnut and tiramisu with espresso jelly and white coffee ice cream. A strong cheese selection also features.
Located at the top of Regent Street and minutes from Oxford Circus.

Very beautiful dining room - one of the nicest in the area. The food is fairly pricey. I have eaten there twice and the first time I had a very good steak which could have been a little hotter. Tonight I ate superb lamb chops and dauphinoise potatoes. I think this is going to be an excellent place once they have smoothed out a few teething problems (please stop serving food on bread boards or in saucepans!)
We've been there 3 times now and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is so nice, specially the big fireplace. The food was lovely every time and the wine list is refreshingly different.
Looked very promosing, friendly welcome, interesting decor, meals came to the table in disjointed manner, my food very disappointing, steak cold served on wooden platter with tasteless potatoes, Duck overcooked, others meals OK, gave me discount but then charged VAT on bill ,strange, they need to do better
