This outdoor terrace at the Bloomsbury Hotel looks like it will work well whatever the weather – it's covered and heated, and its good-looking interior goes heavy on the flora all year round. It feels a mile away from the Great Russell Street traffic around the corner.
The focus is on cocktails, with crowd-pleasing classics present and correct. There's an interesting selection of non-alcoholic cocktails too, made in conjunction with the Rare Tea Company. Expect options such as a Mintea Collins (lemongrass tea, ginger, apple, pear and Fever-Tree soda water) and a Berry Warming (rooibos tea, pomegranate juice, spiced blackberry and raspberry shrub, almond syrup and marmalade).
A short food menu also features, but keep an eye out for afternoon tea, too.
