Favourites include squash and goats cheese ravioli, whilst succulent steaks are sourced from Casterbridge’s finest grain-fed cattle. For dessert, a delectable selection includes Amalfi lemon tart with mascarpone, or rich pot au chocolat.

Offering a more laidback selection, The Grosvenor Arms serves a lunch menu of hearty signature sandwiches, burgers and colourful salads, as well as hand-crafted treats for afternoon tea. The international wine list offers some superb complementing bottles.

In the dining room at The Grosvenor ArmsLondon, muted colours are offset by a dotting of bright canvases. Victoria Rail Station is just 2 minutes’ walk away.

We were seated by the window and loved being able to watch London go by while we enjoyed afternoon tea,

The seating and setting were excellent

A great place for an annual meeting up with an old friend. Good menu with lots of delicious choices and very good service.

The hotel was nice but breakfast was disappointing and not up to standard. Ordered freshly squeezed orange juice and it came in a bottle tasted like from consentrate. Ruined the whole breakfast.

I had been to The Grosvenor for tea previously and had a wonderful experience so decided to book for myself and 3 girlfriends for a mini school reunion. On arrival I made my way to the lounge and spoke to the gentleman at the entrance who seemed bemused at my presence, after a few moments he asked my name and checked the list, once he found me he took a few more moments before asking how many the booking was for then pointed to a table and said "you can go there". He then asked what tea we would like without presenting anyone a menu and so I asked to see one and were given 2 to share. We chose the champagne afternoon tea to which we were asked by the same gentlemen if we had any discount vouchers, we didn't, he started walking away and then said "hang on, let me just....."and we never saw him again. One of my party mused if he even worked at the hotel!

The champagne and tea plates arrived very quickly but 10 minutes after being presented our food our tea order still had not been taken. I had to wave to get some attention to order tea, which then arrived very quickly. The quality of the food was acceptable but no better than that and inferiour to what I had been served at The Grosvenor the previous December. The sandwiches were fine, although some bits of crust were left on. The scones were hard and tasteless and had seemed mass produced as opposed to baked fresh and the cakes were the same, solid, tasteless and mass produced, particularly the chocolate cupcake and the Victoria sponge. In my experience that cakes that top and afternoon tea should be decadent and beautiful, these felt more like a small child's birthday buffet.

Finally we asked for the bill, for which we waited a very long time, the waiter was very sweet and apologetic. The waiter took my card out of sight for a minute or so then handed me my card with no reciept or explanation. I called over and asked for one he said he didn't know how to take partial payment and someone else would come.

Celebrating a birthday with family and primarily booked here because the tube strike was due to start and The Brasserie is easily accessed from Victoria Station.
We met up in The Reunion Bar and as usual had beautiful cocktails served by attentive staff. Due to various members of our party arriving from different destinations we were not all ready for our booked table at 8pm but that posed no problem with the staff at The Brasserie so we did not feel at all rushed.
We had a lovely long table in one of the dining rooms but was fairly quiet although this wasn't a problem for us as we were a party of 10. The waiting staff took our orders and checked them with us to ensure everything was correct. There was a reasonable selection of food certainly enough to cover the various tastes of those present. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. As we were celebrating we had brought a small cake for the birthday girl and the waiting staff brought this to the table and sang Happy Birthday before serving the cake to those who wanted some.
All in all a successful evening despite the transport issues going on - would certainly eat here again and The Reunion Bar has become a family meeting place whenever we go into Town.

I met a friend for lunch but we had a coffee first. Our table was booked in the Brasserie for 1pm but we were talking so much we didn't go in until 1.40pm! Lovely meal from the set menu and good value. The only thing was that my friend's main almost got forgotten even though they had given me mine! However, it was a very nice unhurried lunch and I would certainly go back.

A very enjoyable eating experience, beautifully quiet in wonderful surroundings. Very attentive service and an excellent food selection from which to chose from. Food reasonably priced but beware wine by the glass is pretty steep.
