The Foyer & Reading Room

For many visitors to Claridge’s, the Foyer is the first thing that captures their imagination. In the centre of the room a striking Chihuly sculpture hangs like a chandelier. The walls shimmer with original art deco mirrors. Music drifts from the grand piano. It is here that breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea are served, as well as our inventive twists on classic cocktails.

In the Reading Room, the banquettes create a more intimate dining experience. With intuitive service and a menu of classic and contemporary cuisine, you will soon see why the Foyer & Reading Room has delighted guests for over 150 years.

We cater for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and nut free dietary requirements so please make us aware when you make your reservation.


The Foyer & Reading Room is now closed until further notice.
