Review on The English Grill,The Rubens at the Palace
The English Grill is situated in the Rubens hotel, a dream Belgravia location for tourists and sightseers as it stands proudly just opposite Buckingham Palace: from most windows, guests can spot the comings-and-goings of the guardsmen on the Royal Mews and there's the added bonus of stepping outside to admire the Changing of the Guard.
The English Grill has the cosseted intimacy of a gentleman's club with richly embroidered fabrics, flickering candles, comfortable armchairs and impeccable old-school service setting the tone. A glass wall allows the guests to watch the action in the kitchen which used the finest English produce and top quality meat cooked on the charcoal-fired Josper grill.
It's also worth exploring the comprehensive wine list, especially the selections from the Buchard Finlayson winery in South Africa; otherwise, France is the big player. An extensive buffet-style carvery is available in the separate Old Masters Restaurant.
