Dean Street Townhouse is a 39 bedroom hotel and all-day dining room, located in the thick of buzzing Soho, in central London. The dining room is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. The four-storey Georgian townhouse, once home to the Gargoyle Club, is rich in both its historic past and its Georgian architecture. The all-day dining room serves a menu of seasonal British food, sourced locally from producers within the UK and Ireland. The English dining room combines vintage armchairs, hard wooden floors, and traditional cut glass chandeliers with a menu that incorporates British favourites for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guilty pleasures, such as freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, and freshly cut sandwiches are served during afternoon and high tea.The dining room is open from 7am (8am at weekends), serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner, with a weekly changing menu of British fare. Seating is provided at tables in the main dining room and lounge, and at the bar.Reflecting Soho’s creative atmosphere, the dining room showcases a hand-picked soundtrack and personal art collection. Music is played in the form of bespoke playlists, compiled with hard-to-find dusty British grooves.
Soho veteran, Dean Street Townhouse, has its history firm in the archives. In previous incarnations, it was a favourite of Fred Astaire and Lucien Freud. These days you’ll find the creative types soaking up the afternoon sun on the terrace long after it’s set and kicking back with brunch in the arty dining room. The long marble bar is great for drinks and breakfast pastries (irresistible, sorry) while the booths towards the back and the round tables in the old library lend a little more atmosphere. The food leans towards English classics, from the slightly unappetisingly named mince and potatoes to a Roast Banham chicken with sage and onion stuffing. As an extra bonus, the rooms upstairs are lovely if you feel you just can’t make it home tonight.
