From Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, Galvin at The Athenaeum champions the finest in British produce. Stepping away from their trademark French-inspired menus, modern takes on classic British dishes join Galvin favourites and a quintessential afternoon tea within this famous hotel.

The Galvin menu showcases a host of rich flavours, in dishes such as Dingley Dell pork belly with black pudding and an apple and hazelnut salad, yellowfin tuna burger with white cabbage slaw and avocado, and potato gnocchi with braised short rib and Portobello mushrooms. Galvin classics include duck liver parfait with red onion marmalade and toasted brioche, and steak tartare with toasted sourdough.

Afternoon tea at The Athenaeum on Piccadilly is as refined as its setting. Tuck into classic finger sandwiches, pastries and cakes, and add a glass of fine champagne for extra indulgence.

Offering sophisticated dining in a 5-star setting, Galvin at The Athenaeum in London sits a short walk from both Green Park and Hyde Park Corner Tube stations.

    Great disappointment. I had the fixed price offer booked on Bookatable website at £23.50 on Friday lunchtime at 2 pm. Guess I should have known it was too good an offer to be true. Service was very friendly but slow. I started with soup and needed to season it more with some salt and pepper but there was none on the table. I had finished it before a waiter came by my table to ask for some. My main course was horrible - a pork concoction served undercooked and totally underheated so inedible. The vegetables I ordered as extra sides were unappetizing. I complained and had chicken instead - not great but edible. To their credit the serving staff dealt with my complaint very well and apologetically, a sum of money was automatically deducted for from my bill as compensation.
    Beware too that when they offer water, it comes at a price _£5.95.
    Would not go back or recommend the restaurant.

    Great food - great value for money with the prix fix menu!
    Staff attentive and pleasant surroundings. Not as dramatic as galvin la chapelle, but great alternative if in the west end !
