Holborn Dining Room | A Great British Brasserie
Picture the scene.
You’re meandering around the greater Covent Garden area and, peckishly, decide that you’d like to eat. Surprisingly in the mood for anywhere which doesn’t feature dim lighting, cocktails in jam jars, NYC-style exposed brickwork or hotdogs, you decide – just for once – to head somewhere which is genuinely befitting of your affluence, social status and good looks.
But the queue at McDonald’s is too long, so instead you make a beeline for the opulent Rosewood Hotel, just inside the entrance to which you discover London’s latest grand British brasserie: Holborn Dining Room.
It’s the sort of place you’ll want to visit when you’re hungry, and in need of something specific.
Like breakfast, lunch or dinner inside the expansive ex-banking hall of a Grade II Listed, 1914 Edwardian building, the interior of which looks quite a lot like Balthazar‘s but which sets itself apart courtesy of a menu full of classic British dishes like corned beef hash, fish n’ chips with mushy peas, and Bakewell tart with raspberry ripple ice cream.
Can’t get much more specific than that.
