Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Elegant, bright and visually luxuriant, this big-money reboot of the Lanesborough’s flagship dining room (formerly Apsleys) is all bas-reliefs and dangling chandeliers beneath a domed glass ceiling – a luxe backdrop for food with serious culinary gravitas. The kitchen gives proud British ingredients a pan-European makeover with spectacular results – no surprise, given that executive head chef Steeven [sic] Gilles has only worked in Michelin-starred restaurants. Expect lots of Gallic accents in dishes ranging from blanched green asparagus with mimosa egg, oscietra caviar and crème fraîche to roasted Dover sole accompanied by sautéed spring onions, smoked tomatoes, cockles and garlicky parsley butter. Other crowd-pulling attractions include sedate afternoon teas and a tempting line-up of vintage cognacs in the adjoining Library Bar.
The setting at Céleste is superb, a richly decorated dining room, naturally illuminated during day by a domed glass roof, whilst seductively aglow under the softly lit chandeliers in the evening.
We are delighted to exclusively launch a new afternoon tea experience with world-famous bakery Peggy Porschen. Combining one of London’s most beautiful afternoon tea settings, under the naturally illuminated domed glass roof of our Michelin-starred Céleste, with the fairy tale pink aesthetics of Peggy Porschen, you can expect a spring-time immersion into a celebration of beautiful floral features, pastel-hues and exquisite tastes.
Founder and life-long baker Peggy is returning to The Lanesborough, where she held her first prestigious pastry chef position in 1999 after graduating from Le Cordon Bleu’s ‘The Grand Diploma of Cuisine & Patisserie’. This time Peggy, alongside her skilled pastry chef team, is returning to design a beautifully unique afternoon tea experience in collaboration with The Lanesborough’s Head Pastry Chef Kevin Miller.
