Defined by its relaxed, informal setting, The Brasserie at The Cumberland serves a menu of European classics with a distinctly British twist. Effortlessly chic, the dazzling back-lit bar is the focal point of the main dining room.

Crafted with award-winning expertise, the Brasserie menu foregrounds classic flavours with exciting modern flourishes. Sophisticated options include pan-fried haddock fillet on a poached potato with a cockle, leek and parsley casserole, and a succulent shallow-fried fillet of chicken Holstein topped with fried organic hen’s egg and served with anchovies, capers, shallots, parsley and nut brown butter. Delightfully indulgent options extend through to the dessert menu at The Brasserie restaurant in London, featuring a chocolate and hazelnut pudding with hazelnut ice cream and a warm chocolate sauce.

Brasserie afternoon tea combines delicate sandwiches, scones and cakes with exquisite Higgins Tea, while a sumptuous Sunday carvery menu offers a 3-course weekend treat. For a sophisticated drinks setting, look no further than The Brasserie’s Momentus Bar, a sultry yet elegant bar space lit by atmospheric purple lighting.

Within the luxury of The Cumberland Hotel, family-friendly dining is offered at The Brasserie in Mayfair. Marble Arch Tube Station sits a 2-minute walk away.

  • (((** 9 December 2016 by Liza Watts from London

    Not much variety with the cake selection, when asked for another pot of tea we only got more hot water, do not expect this from a London Hotel, very poor, also very cold in the area where we sat

    Lovely REAL English afternoon tea.
    Great sandwiches and pastries, with amazing scones, all served with a class of champagne
    The tea is very special - T2.

    Service was a little slow which was surprising as the restaurant didn't seem overly busy. Afternoon tea was fine although, personally, would have preferred a few more sandwiches in place of the numerous cakes.

    Dire service, mediocre meal, give it a miss. We had to seat ourselves after waiting 10 minutes and no one came to seat us. We waited 50 minutes for our main course and the restaurant was far from busy. I shall not be returning.

    Food was really nice. Service was very slow though. Didn't take my name or what time our booking was for when we arrived and said that we had a booking. Was given one menu then they changed it to another even though had same information on. Had to wait quite a while for our food and had to chase for an extra plate of sandwiches and chase for a refil for our pots of tea

  • (((** 21 June 2016 by Neil from Aberdeen

    The service was quick, and the actual food and drink were nicely presented. the one drawback was that the service location was next to the bar, which did not lend itself to the reserved atmosphere one would expect for high tea.

    We had afternoon tea here and it was fantastic. The staff where great, and the food was excellent, and plentiful. I would highly recommend The Cumberland for afternoon tea.
