The Garden is an intimate and informal Mediterranean-style alfresco restaurant, positioned on Wilton Place on a terrace at the side of the hotel with views of neighbouring St Paul’s church. Lit with lanterns, festoon lights and candles, this outdoor dining spot is lined with olive trees and lavender, reminiscent of the balmy nights of European escapes.
Offering a daily changing menu showcasing the freshest ingredients served as sharing plates in convivial eating style – the antidote to lockdown living and perfect summertime dining. Guests are welcomed with warm sourdough with confit garlic and charred vine tomatoes – a signature touch. Dishes include giant charred prawns; T-bone steak with smoked shallot butter and chimichurri; grilled sardines with lemon and rock salt; and roast cauliflower with smoked almond puree. Charred octopus with lemon and garlic saffron aioli; and grilled rack of lamb also feature on the menu – all cooked outside on Green Egg barbeques.
The drinks list includes garden pitchers – ‘The Berkeley Cup’ a blend of rum, Pimm’s, cassis and ginger beer finished with cucumber and strawberries; or perhaps try ‘Peach Wine’ a delicious mix of rosé, peach and elderflower liqueur with lime. The Garden is overlooked by The Berkeley Bar with its intimate terrace, which is open to guests, serving classic cocktails and fine wines – the perfect pre or post dinner drink.
