Restaurant description

Found within a London hotel that dates back as far as 1836, 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 Pawar 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 Cavendish Hotel. Green Park Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    Nice atmosphere and the staff were all really lovely and attentive, one of the best bottomless experiences I've had. The extra brownie for my birthday was a nice touch although we were all so full from the lovely food, but there's always room for a little bit of brownie.

    Excellent value for money. Food, service and ambiance very good. Compares very favourably with other establishments nearby (and perhaps better known).

    There were 8 of us booked for the prosecco afternoon tea ( 1 gluten free, 1 vegetarian). Can not fault it. Great Value, great service. Prosecco was topped up all the time. We had a lovely time and left full and little tipsy. Also nice to see a restaurant serving water for free. Recommend. Thanks

    I booked a free-flowing prosecco afternoon tea for myself and three friends. The décor and location were great and the tea was delicious. Lovely sandwiches and cakes, very good scones, with plenty of cream and jam. But the service was fabulous - very attentive but knew when to leave us alone. I would thoroughly recommend this place.

    The food was really lovely and the bubbles were very free flowing. Was a little disappointed that we had to pay for extra sandwiches though as many places offer them for free now.
