Strolling through Hyde Park can be thirsty work at any time, so Patrick Gwynne’s iconic building on the eastern side of the Serpentine must come as a relief to many a Londoner and visitor alike. It’s certainly a super spot to sit and enjoy a coffee, afternoon tea or something a little stronger.
During the summer, the spacious terrace is enhanced by the arrival of a Gin Bar, charmingly housed in a 1952 Citroën H van. Otherwise, customers can simply order some wine, grab a deckchair and let the day roll by. This striking building also houses a ‘Kitchen’, of course, which offers an all-day menu inspired by its park setting. Stand-out dishes include Home-Cured Beetroot Salmon with Horseradish Crème Fraîche, Salt Beef Sandwich on Rye Bread with Dill Pickle, plus a tasty selection of wood-fired Pizzas.
