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.

    Afternoon Tea - Food was a little tired, sandwiches were not very exciting and not much selection.

    Beautiful setting, had a window seat so could see the street below and the Christmas lights. The prosecco was beautiful, light and slightly sweet. Favourite dish was the barbecued makeral. Dessert was great too, chocolate mousse was phenomenal as it came with a raspberry sorbet, but my partner has a cheese board which was almost as good.

    My wife and I came for afternoon tea on my birthday on 18/12/19. Your staff were attentive, efficient, polite and good humoured. They took into account my wife's allergies with no fuss and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The staff were really welcoming and the food was excellent - we opted for the special pre theatre menu and although it's a small menu we all were really pleased with our choices. Special mention to our server Gerda who went over and above to make sure we enjoyed our evening. She's a real asset.
