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.

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.

    We selected lunch at One Twenty One Two at the last minute as we were in Central London and knew that London restaurant festival was on. We booked 2 courses for £15 and were not disappointed. My salmon starter and baby lemon sole main were excellently prepared and the wine list was varied with some well priced bottles. Being a Monday lunchtime it was very quiet, but I can imagine it has a business lunch and dinner buzz to it at other times. I should also mention my lemon tart dessert which was extraordinary. 3 courses each (at £19 per person), a bottle of wine and a bottle of sparking water came to just over £85 including tip. An excellent meal at reasonable prices with great service... I couldn't ask for anymore.

    I had a romantic Friday evening starting at sophisticated and intimate horse guards rooms and then the elegant and refined restaurant, where the service was great from start to finish. The food was outstanding, flavoursome and well presented. Highly recommended.

    We booked a pre theatre dinner which was a set menu available between 17.30 and 18.30. The whole meal was excellent; the presentation of the food was superb, the tastes were exquisite, the service was attentive but not suffocating and the whole experience was very enjoyable. The only thing that wasn't too great was the price of bottled water.

    We had a group booking for 5 at 3pm on the London Reastaurant Festival menu advertised however this menu did not exist when we arrived. There was a lunch offer available but we never receieved the glass of prosecco mentioned on restuarant's website. The strawberry cheescake seemed as if it had come out of Iceland and when guests who ordered the cheesecake mentioned their disppointment, no comment was made by staff. On plus side, other than the cheesecake, the food was good and staff were professional. We were the only ones in but were nor rushed through. Outside tearrace looked nice, but we didn't have weather to enjoy it. Overall, ok, but there are better quality and value places in london to go. Doubt if we'll go back.j
