Critically acclaimed for the technical skill that goes into this London gourmet restaurant’s elemental kitchen wizardry, Caxton Grill in St James is proud to offer some of the city’s very best modern European dishes. Seasonal ingredients are treated to advanced gastronomic techniques, served up in premises inside St. Ermin’s Hotel down Caxton Street with casual and private dining areas that overlook the hotel’s verdant courtyard. Deeply professional service matches the beautifully presented contemporary cuisine showcased on their renowned lunch and dinner a la carte and tasting menus.
As one of London’s most respected restaurants and bars, Caxton Grill serves food that highlights the best seasonal flavours. Sourcing the best produce they can find, the chefs create a number of variations on the theme of each ingredient, layering intense flavours and textures into marvels of modern cuisine. Demonstrating a wide-range of culinary interests, but with a particular yen for Japanese, Caxton Grill – located in St. Ermin’s Hotel down Caxton Street in London’s St James’ – delivers guests a unique dining experience characterised by novel fusions, dishes whose apparent simplicity belies their depth and complexity on the palate.
The emphasis on locally-sourced produce at Caxton Grill can’t be better demonstrated than by the way in which they find their honey – from a clutch of beehives sat on the rooftop of St. Ermin’s Hotel, the very building where this London gourmet’s paradise is housed down Caxton Street. A number of dishes on the extensive menus (plus one or two innovative cocktails) use this honey, radically redefining foraged food. Same goes for many of the herbs and greens that make their way to table – this St James’ restaurant has an interior wall hung with plants, trimmed and sent direct to the kitchen. If you’re to take our advice and try this unique London restaurant, we can’t recommend enough their famed tasting menu – seven courses paired with wine making for a sampler whose restraint and profundity has to be experienced to be believed.
Excellent food, service & ambience. We were celebrating a special occasion and the staff went out of their way to acknowledge this. Would definitely make a return visit.
It Was great time, restaurant serves nice , friendly and well presented delicious food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for nice service, beautiful climate and tasty food
Staff were great, considering we were a large group. Food was also great. Myself and the colleagues I was with will definitely return in the near future!
Food was beautiful. Little things about the service that should never happen at that level of restaurant but overall, thoroughly enjoyable and will definitely be back.
Was ok. But not more than that. Very kind service though not the very best. Ordered double espresso, they have no idea what an espresso should be like. Sirloin was ok at best. Difficult lady at entrance. Not very customer kind.
Great restaurant. The food and the service was great. The staff had good knowledge of the menu and I will most definitely be returning at some point
Came because I was hoping for the tasting menu by Adam Handling however he is no longer there and this has not been updated online. Disappointed with the long wait times between courses.
