Bistro dining in the heart of Bloomsbury
The Blue Door Bistro provides a welcoming and informal bistro-style setting, with a superb à la Carte menu to match. Light and airy at lunchtime, warm and cosy by evening, the room is decorated on three sides with a panoramic view of London circa 1849.
Together with the rich mahogany panelled walls, effective use of mirrored glass, and contemporary wrought iron wall lights, an ambience rooted in the hotel’s location is beautifully achieved.
Guests are advised to book in advance.
