Food & Drink

With two restaurants, a separate lounge, two bars, including the intimate Leopard Champagne Bar, and 24-hour room service, The Rubens gives diners plenty of choice for every occasion – from cocktails, to light snacks, to a Royal Afternoon Tea and fine dining.

The English Grill is an a la carte restaurant, offering a contemporary brasserie style menu offering classics, including salads, main courses, steaks, desserts and Mrs. Tollman’s dishes, or dine in the more formal Library Restaurant with sophisticated a la Carte classics, and an equally impressive selection of the finest wines.The Palace Lounge is perfect for drinks, snacks, or our famous Afternoon Tea, overlooking the Royal Mews.

Please note: The English Grill will be closed until the end of April 2017 due to refurbishment. Breakfast will be served daily in the Palace Lounge and Cavalry Bar and Bbar will be open for lunch and dinner.
