Named Hotel of the Year in the London Lifestyle Awards in 2010, 2011 & 2012, No.20 Restaurant @ Sanctum Soho Hotel showcases high-end British cuisine. A glossy lacquered bar, swathes of bronze leather and glass-clad pillars offer timeless vintage glamour.

Changing with the seasons, the Sanctum menu offers a seamless selection of seasonally-changing recipes from head chef, Matthew Dunn. Enjoy simple British staples finished with a refined twist, like 24-hour slow-cooked rock & roll barbecue beef ribs with sweet chilli coleslaw, or pan-fried whole Dover sole, capers, lemon & parsley brown butter sauce. For dessert, enjoy Pimm's jelly with orange & apples, served with a strawberry, cucumber & mint salsa, or homemade profiteroles with vanilla crème patisserie & warm chocolate sauce.

Perfectly matched to the menu, the No. 20 restaurant wine list offers a top-end selection of international bottles. Trendy cocktail mixes are also served from the Sanctum London bar, and guests can enjoy an edgy take on afternoon tea.

Set in a beautifully converted pair of townhouses, the Sanctum Soho dining room showcases interior design from the expert eye of Lesley Purcell. Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus Tube stations are 8 minutes' walk away.

    Great gentlemen's afternoon tea.

    The Gents' Tea is excellent. Great and plentiful food. Finishing with whiskey and cigars on the terrace is fun.

    Shockingly poor food, scone was tiny, impossible to cut and hard as a biscuit, waaaay to much mustard in the sandwich (and i like mustard) so it was inedible, and the ice cream on the fudge cake was vanilla not jack daniels as advertised. Drink with the high heels tea was bubbles instead of 'signature cocktail', was told by barman we had topay extra for entlemans jaxk (we pointed out on the menu that was included in the price and only single barrel was extra - no apology given he just looked pissed off. The only positive i can take from the experience was how well one if your staff (guy with long curly black hair) handled our complaint, he was excellent, everything else was awful. Very disappointing as it was meant to be a 30th birthday treat for my hubby

    The food was excellent. The scotch egg starter was divine. Portions were also very large.

    We had the gentlemens afternoon tea. Food was tasty, warm and well presented. However the service was terrible, not for fault of the waitress who was polite and helpful, but there was a rea lack of staff. Every time we needed a drink we had find a member of staff rather than being asked, felt you were almost forgotten about until a particular element of the afternoon tea was ready. For example, we had request the whiskey course, rather then it flowing as it should. We had request water rather than being offered.
    At the time of booking I stated it was my partners Birthday, even completing the special requests for the online booking form, but no added special touch was presented. Was disappointing experience, made worse because the food was so great.

    A great dinning experience with friendly staff that went out of their way to accommodate a large group. Restaurant had a great atmosphere along with an even better menu. We experienced the Gentleman's high tea and thoroughly enjoyed the food.

    Fantastic food, brilliant service. Went on a cold and rainy day, we were sat on the roof terrace and were offered a blanket if we were cold. The restaurant had soft lighting so made it feel like you were out for the evening even though it was the afternoon which was a nice touch. My husband said that if he'd known about this hotel earlier he would have been sooner.

    Booked 2 high heels teas which was supposed to include a glass of laurent perrier champagne, but we were given prosecco with no explanation or discount.
    The tea itself was good value and the location behind Regents St is good for shoppers . Service was pleasant and friendly.

    The gent's afternoon tea was brilliant, a great culinary experience. I would recommend it to all of my friends. The cigar and whiskey was throughly enjoyed on the beautiful rooftop terrace.
