The menu – which goes from breakfast through to dinner – allows metropolitan traditions to meet with modern London. A luxurious offering of caviar, shellfish, and hand-carved smoked salmon is served in addition to light, raw, and vegan options; while Fortnum’s most renowned dishes, including Welsh Rarebit and the Knickerbocker Glory are also on the menu, along with produce fresh from our famous Food Halls, such as our exclusive Glenarm beef. Food is served alongside an extensive and expertly curated wine and Champagne list, in addition to cocktails, floats, and digestifs.
