A taste of Claridge's arrived at Great George Street when the new brasserie and cafe/bar opened this week. Chef David Williamson was poached by the ICE from Claridge's this summer to help complete the transformation of the outdated carvery, buttery and bar. It was refurbished over the summer at a cost of £875,000. So what does it offer? The cafe bar is open from 8:30am and serves the usual array of soups, snacks, salads and sandwiches, as well as offering a hot dish of the day. Beers, wines and hot and cold drinks are available from 11am until closing time.
For those wanting a real dining experience, the brasserie is open at lunchtimes for waitress service.
