Defined by its relaxed, informal setting, The Brasserie at The Cumberland serves a menu of European classics with a distinctly British twist. Effortlessly chic, the dazzling back-lit bar is the focal point of the main dining room.

Crafted with award-winning expertise, the Brasserie menu foregrounds classic flavours with exciting modern flourishes. Sophisticated options include pan-fried haddock fillet on a poached potato with a cockle, leek and parsley casserole, and a succulent shallow-fried fillet of chicken Holstein topped with fried organic hen’s egg and served with anchovies, capers, shallots, parsley and nut brown butter. Delightfully indulgent options extend through to the dessert menu at The Brasserie restaurant in London, featuring a chocolate and hazelnut pudding with hazelnut ice cream and a warm chocolate sauce.

Brasserie afternoon tea combines delicate sandwiches, scones and cakes with exquisite Higgins Tea, while a sumptuous Sunday carvery menu offers a 3-course weekend treat. For a sophisticated drinks setting, look no further than The Brasserie’s Momentus Bar, a sultry yet elegant bar space lit by atmospheric purple lighting.

Within the luxury of The Cumberland Hotel, family-friendly dining is offered at The Brasserie in Mayfair. Marble Arch Tube Station sits a 2-minute walk away.

    The restaurant has been relocated downstairs but still provides a beautiful atmosphere. The service was wonderful; all staff were polite and understanding. The food was a lot (just right) and the teas were unlimited.

    Dining experience was excellent. Restaurant was excellent with a wonderful selection of sandwiches scones and pastries. The service was extremely good and we were made to feel very special

    The waitress was rude and not very accommodating to my friend who has several allergies, especially towards nuts.

    Macaroons are made with almond nuts if I remember correctly, we asked whether there were any alternatives to replace these. The response we got was "there's plenty of food, when you've finished then we'll see what we can change it for." Completely disregarding and unacceptable service.

    The sandwiches and cakes were bog standard, nothing special at all, so for her to be so unwilling to change the macaroons were beyond me.

    Definitely not coming back here again!

    Beautiful hotel and restaurant, great service. Delicious food and lots of it! The tea cups are adorable, really had a great time!

    Afternoon Tea. I dined here with family 7 in total, this included a 4 year old. The staff were personable with a helpful and caring disposition.
    The Afternoon Tea was fantastic and priced at £25 per a person, we received a lot more than we expected.
    We will most definitely be going back again!

    Excellent! The best afternoon tea I've ever had. Hot chocolate was available (unlike other locations I've been to) and the the scones are nice and big! (once again unlike other locations I've been too). Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent service

    Hi! The staff were very welcoming and able to accommodate the change in our booking time. And the food itself was quite nice. However there were a few details lacking in the overall afternoon tea package. The sandwiches were quite cold when brought to the table, as if made and refrigerated for a long time before. If they can't be freshly made, allow more time for them to come to room temperature. I was also disappointed by the lack of tea/coffee refills. While additional hot water was brought for the tea, only one small coffee was initially provided for the coffee drinker. I would have expected at least a pot. We were charged extra for an additional cup of coffee.... I am not surprised that there were few people there during our visit. The modern ambience and decor did not complement 'traditional' afternoon tea.
    However I did like the food, the tea and the teapot wS extremely cute, if small!
