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 venue but no atmosphere, we were the only two people in a huge dinning round for over an hour of our 90 minutes being there. The waitress was lovely but didn't leave us alone, over every 5 minutes. But was a nice place and worth the money.

    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).
