Restaurant description

Awarded a prestigious AA Rosette, One Twenty One Two is renowned for its British cuisine, with stunning views over the London Eye and a tranquil terrace perfect for al-fresco summer dining.

Passionate about seasonal produce, the One Twenty One Two menu is packed with exciting twists on traditional favourites. The menu offers classics such as Surf n’ Turf - Grangemoor rib eye steak and grilled tiger prawns, wagyu beef burger and English lamb cutlets with red wine and redcurrant jus. Additionally, the restaurant offers delicious options for vegetarians such as roasted Mediterranean vegetable salad with sunflower and pomegranate seeds and a grilled halloumi and Portobello mushroom burger. Desserts include a cherry mousse with chocolate cup and raspberry coulis, or a cheeseboard to share served with crackers and celery.

Named after the original telephone number of Scotland Yard, this timeless and distinguished setting is filled with plush red velvet and nostalgic black & white photographs. The restaurant has a superb cocktail list inspired by some of the hotel’s former guests, such as Sir Winston Churchill, alongside a fine wine list. An aperitif can also be enjoyed in One Twenty One Two’s stylish Equus bar.

One Twenty One Two is located in an enviable setting on Victoria Embankment, just a 2 minute walk away from Embankment Underground Station and close to London’s Charing Cross. The Royal Horseguards is also near famous landmark Big Ben.

    The food was reasonably good and well presented, but the service was abysmally slow with very long waits between courses. We made the mistake of sitting outside with a table near the pizza oven which was fed by some acrid fuel which caused most unpleasant fumes to drift over us over our entire three course lunch. I feel that a restaurant of a hotel of this supposed standing could do a great deal better.

    Our waiter, Maria, was very attentive and friendly and although we arrived with two additional guests, they managed to accommodate us without problems. The food was good quality and tasty (though nothing special) and the place has a nice decoration.

    We had a great time! The staff were really lovely and helpful, the food was delicious and my Mum really enjoyed her birthday candle presentation. Many thanks to all those who made her day a special one. Highly recommend this venue for any special occasion. The menu is really good also - suits all diets - vegetarian, pescatarian and meat eaters.

    Service good but the food was too salty for my taste.

    Our whole meal was wonderful. The wines complemented the meal exactly. I would recommend this restaurant whenever anyone wishes to have a special meal whilst in town. Thank you so much for the birthday surprise at the end of our meal.

    We had afternoon tea which was delightful, our waitress was lovely and very attentive and friendly, we were offered extra sandwiches and tea. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the table setting was so pretty all little touches that made it a very pleasant and relaxing [especially after a very busy day out in London] experience. I would definitely recommend afternoon tea here.

    We went to One Twenty One at Royal Horseguards on a Saturday night. The restaurant was lovely, in a brilliant setting, just round the corner from Whitehall and Horseguards Parade. The food was excellent as was the service and particularly with the Bookatable Offer it gave outstanding value for money. We both had salmon to start followed by the surf and turf, both of which were prepared and cooked to perfection. We will definitely go back to this restaurant.

    Very nice setting and food. Service not so good. Got the order wrong twice then brought out the mains before the starters. Good value for the set meal deal though.

    Food was very good however service was slow and found some of the staff to appear unwelcoming we asked twice for the bill but a discount was given for our inconvenience.
