Proudly showcasing 2 AA Rosettes, Petrichor at The Cavendish London serves contemporary British cuisine and a great value pre-theatre menu. Overlooking the exclusive boutiques and galleries of Jermyn Street, St. James's and Piccadilly, Petrichor is found on the 1st floor of the Cavendish London hotel.

Championing a commitment to serving premium ingredients, Petrichor London sources from local farmers and producers to create monthly-changing menus of delicious modern British cuisine. Head Chef Nitin Padwal blends hearty, home-cooked flavours and unique culinary flair, with Petrichor menu favourites including rich pigeon and venison terrine with elderflower jelly, or sustainable fish pie with smoked cod loin, shrimps and boiled quail eggs.

Rich, autumnal flavours for dessert include panettone bread & butter pudding with drambuie custard, or mulled wine-poached pear with cinnamon mascarpone. An accomplished wine list at Petrichor Green Park showcases fine vintages, alongside an exclusive selection from the Chapel Down winery in Kent.

Capturing the essence of nature through the setting and cuisine, Petrichor restaurant is set in the deluxe surroundings of The Cavenish Hotel. Green Park Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    The service was exceptional. The tea and food was lovely and delicious. The presentation was OK. I was a bit disappointed with the presentation, however this is less important to me than service and taste.

    Petrichor was simply delightful. We can't say enough great things about the staff and the service. Thank you so much for making my birthday a wonderful experience. We were blown away by every single staff member's attention to detail and professionalism. The environment felt classy, welcoming, and complete in every way. All guests were impressed and extremely satisfied with their service and treatment, and had so many compliments to offer the restaurant staff. This is the level of service every restaurant should have -- really incredible how the lead staff member referred to me by name and treated me so kindly & well. Thank you again, and I hope to recommend your fine establishment to those who will very generously patronize it. Our hats off, seriously, to the staff, most of all!

    Booked for 5.30 for pre theatre meal for 2 people. Food was good but service was very slow. We needed to be at the theatre for 7.30 and had to ask if we could have our dessert as it was7.10pm. 7.20 and we asked for bill still no dessert so we said we would have to leave,at that moment the dessert appeared and it looked delicious , unfortunately we only had a quick taste and had to leave. If this ts a regular occurrence at this time of day it explains why there were only 3 lots of diners including us in the restaurant. Food good, staff attentive, food slow to leave kitchen.

    Great food, brilliant service. Felt really spoiled. Good deal with the set menu. Maybe some people might find it a bit quiet, but if you have good company, who cares?

    We had excellent food elegantly served and with very attentive waiting staff. The cocktails we received were again excellent. There was no rush to get us out. Our friends who we took were absolutely delighted.
