Restaurant description

Caxton Grill based in St. Ermin’s Hotel in Westminster near St. James’s Park, takes top quality ingredients and cooks them to perfection.

The Caxton Grill menu offers choice cuts including USDA prime black Angus tenderloin and British Porterhouse steak, alongside the freshest of fish are cooked using a Josper Grill. This method of cooking retains moisture, preserves tenderness, so resulting in extra tasty food. Sides and salads are not mere accompaniments, but stars in themselves, with many being influenced by the fresh produce grown on their rooftop kitchen garden. This love of fresh seasonal ingredients extends to the Grill’s sauces, which are inspired by their herb garden.

Service is friendly and attentive, but unfussy. Caxton Grill in London is ideal for lunch, dinner, pre-theatre or post-theatre, serving great food, beautifully cooked.

St James’s Park Tube Station is a 2-minute walk away from Caxton Gril.

    It’s convenient. The food is fine, but main courses come with absolutely nothing other than the dish and a garnish— any vegetable or potato has to be ordered separately, which really ups the price. Rather jarring music is played and the lighting is bright and the furniture rather functional— not really a relaxing environment. The Pinot Grigio was very good, however, and the staff are lovely.

    friendly staff and good food. One remark it would be nice if the dishes are served that the staff tells whats on it. I had cheese pate as dessert and then it is nice to know what kind of cheese that is served

    Nice ambience , slightly overmanaged service , people sometimes over attentive but then no one noticing if table did need something . The food goodish but variable, at this price . I decided to try the festive turkey and the plate was disappointing to be honest. Open to new flavour combinations but this was slightly too much one dessert was listed as having bacon and banana elements . A starter listed coffee oil in the pumpkin soup which I couldn’t discern so not sure about that. I think clearer less Elaborate flavours might be beneficial. Enjoyed the building and people were friendly

    I had read great feedback and reviews about the Caxton Grill, and we were not disappointed! The food especially was absolutley amazing. I had the pigeon to start. I f I am going to criticise anything it is that the protion was a bit small for the price, but the food itself was superb. As was the Porterhouse steak I had for main. The staff were really friendly and attentive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone - especially if you love big, perfectly cooked steaks!

    Disappointing. Billed as a "Victorian tasting menu” it was in fact just the set menu with vague Victorian aspirations. Very small portions. The trifle wasn't a trifle. The ox cheek was delicious and perfectly cooked, but there's no dodging the fact that this was a very cheap cut of meat, and difficult to justify on a £45 set menu, Service was slow and uninformed. "What is the Jubilee Cherry Dessert?" "It is cherries. It is delicious. You will like." The accompanying beer tasting menu was the best part of the experience...three 500ml bottles of Fullers Golden Ale, 1845 ale, and Porter, shared between the two of us. Retail price £6.10. We were charged £40, which is a 600% mark-up. Absolutely disgraceful.

    Very good service by friendly and very attentive staff. We ordered from the grill section in the menu and the food was amazing. The dessert was very small, especially for the price, but it tasted amazing. Unfortunately the restaurant was a little sleepy, but we asked for a table closer to the other guests which they were happy to give us and overall it was a really great experience.
