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.

    A lovely return to the Cavendish. Great service, free flowing prosecco and lovely food. We weren’t rushed or left waiting, it was a perfect afternoon tea

    My mum and I had a wonderful afternoon tea at the petrichor, the staff were very attentive and the service really good - especially with the prosecco too ups as part of the bottomless offer. The cakes and scones were delicious and as good as some of the afternoon teas I’ve had at much more expensive restaurants such as the langham and F&M. Will definitely return.

    Popped in for a last minute afternoon tea and it couldn't have been better. Bottomless prosecco was really good value for money and the staff were very attentive, not one glass was allowed to be empty! The food was delicious. Definitely a great find and will be back when we are next in London.
