The Lobby Lounge offers an airy and delicate environment equally perfect for a chatty nibble with friends or a smart lunch to talk business. The afternoon tea offers the choice of a Western or an Asian set so there’s something to please every palate. The Portuguese egg tart is particularly sumptuous with delicate pastry and a plump rich custard—be sure to nab that before any of your companions. To wash these down there is a great selection of premium teas with some unusual flavours and combinations sure to awake and invigorate. The lunchtime weekend buffet is ample and has a good selection of roasted meats and a real traditional English flavour with authentic Yorkshire puddings and gravy. The more intimate of the Lobby Lounge does make a boozy weekend brunch that much more cosy and intimate, though the size is a limiting factor as it neither excels in selection or in doing anything particularly impressively. If you’ve got a hunger for curry however hit the weekday curry tiffin lunch buffet with some of the finest Indian food in the city.
