sketch Lecture Room & Library (not to be be confused with the gallery - pink room downstairs) is sectioned off from the main part of sketch to usher you in a world of food, service & care very worthy of its 2 awarded Michelin stars. We had scallops to start & the venison as a main. Both were cooked to... More

I had booked a table some time ago for the Lecture Room & Library at Sketch and wasn't sure what to expect; I had heard good things but one can never be quite sure! We found the venue easy to find and the staff at once accommodating, taking our coats and escorting us up to a vaulted room enveloped in... More

Visited for lunch with my wife. From the time we arrived the service was extremely good. The food was very flavorsome and did not disappoint. The ambience and decor is very unique and for us added to a memorable and very enjoyable lunch...will return.

We had an amazing lunch, we took the meal, and we got a lot of satisfaction with the food and service. A wine list with an amount of choice incredible. Really nice time. And the building and decorations are great!

In an 18th century mansion in the heart of London is a rare combination of tasteful art, pleasant ambiance and superb dining (Lecture Room, Gallery). Every dining room is decorated by a different decorator and everything in each room is designed by the same person so you get an exquisite harmony of shapes and colors. To top it off in... More

This is the place to go if you want OTT service. It is very formal and not the kind of place where you can dress casually. The food is inventive and fun. The only gripe was the fact that the bread was slightly underbaked. Expect to prebook by at least 4 week prior to the visit.

It is difficult to decide whether the food or the service was better. The presentation and the environment is amazing! Everyone on the floor is very helpful and very professional. It was good to see the way how they were talking to other customers as well. It was wonderful from start to finish. Food was amazing! Nicely presented and cooked... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
