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.

    Visited the Athenaeum for the first time last night. Our starters of chicken liver parfait was very nice, smooth and delicious but unusually didn’t come with any toast or bread so we had to order a side order of bread to eat with it (why was this not included?) but the pork faggot main course was meaty and tasted lovely. My dessert of pear and almond tart was sweet and light. Although the offer was good value and all the courses were tasty and well presented, the portion sizes were rather small (especially the chicken main course dish).

    The staff were all very attentive and kept checking we were enjoying our food/evening but unfortunately, our table seemed to be situated in the opening of the restaurant so we had a continuous stream of staff going to the cloakroom and we did feel excluded from the main restaurant.

    A beautiful hotel , welcoming staff. The restaurant was very busy , good ambience. The menu is very good value and the good is good with a good choice of dishes.
    The service was a bit off ladt night, a long wait for the main course, had to be prompted for the chocolates with coffee.
    Having been a couple of times before I know the service is usually better than this.
