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.

    Booked free flowing Prosecco afternoon tea for 4 friends. As soon as we arrived were greeted warmly and taken to our table. Lovely atmosphere, refined yet relaxed. Staff could not be more attentive and the Prosecco was definitely free flowing! As soon as we arrived they asked if there were any special dietry requirements and bought out my friend her own plate of sandwiches. Really impressed, nothing too much trouble and would highly recommend fir afternoon tea with friends. Smart casual dress , perfect treat for after a long morning of retail therapy !

    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).

    Afternoon tea was fine but there are better places to go for the same price. Pros: good location, good service, really free-flowing prosecco, delicious deserts (especially chocolate brownies!) Cons: an ordinary restaurant at a modern hotel, sandwiches and scones are very average and below expectations

    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

    Ive had better afternoon teas on an offer. I asked for another plate of sandwiches and they said they would be an extra cost. The cake selection was was poor, one macaroon and one small piece of brownie each. The scones were nice.
