The Landmark London in Marylebone is a gorgeous five-star Grande Dame hotel and has, since it opened 120 years ago, remained an icon of quintessential and elegant London charm. The hotel offers guests an oasis of luxury and serenity in the heart of the capital and that is exactly what we experienced when we visited. ONIN.London are told that The Landmark London has an illustrious history which includes a wealth of guests and events. The opening ceremony of the hotel was attended by members of the Royal Family; it hosted a “Welcome Back from Prison” breakfast for the Suffragettes and the M19 debriefing of legendary British Lieutenant Airey Neave and was even purchased, for a time, by a Japanese popstar in the 1980s. Pretty amazing if you ask us.

The best feature of The Landmark London, has to be its iconic and soaring eight-storey-high glass Atrium that has been at the centre of the hotel since its opening. Upon entering, I was convinced I’d been teleported to another country. It’s simply beautiful! The Atrium houses two venues, The Winter Garden which serves a modern European menu and one of England’s finest Afternoon Teas in stunning surroundings, whilst The Garden Terrace serves drinks throughout the day and Sunday Champagne Brunch at weekend. 

The Winter Garden Restaurant is a tranquil oasis with gorgeous palm trees and it was the perfect place to spend an afternoon. I mean what’s better than good company, great food and an amazing view. 

As this visit was a few months ago, the menu has since changed but there’s still a few of our favourite on the menu. Of course I started with the Burrata. It is always a staple and it was complimented at the time with Black Figs and Truffle. The perfect combination. My friend chose the Sautéed Fresh Girolle Mushrooms and I heard no complaints as she polished off her starter.

For mains, I was extremely happy with my Slow Cooked Short Rib Of Beef, while my friend loved her Pan Seared Atlantic Cod. The beef was tender and just fell apart. The accompanying sauce was the cherry on top and complimented the meal perfectly.

For desserts I was torn between the Tropical Eton Mess and the Valrhona Chocolate Fondant. Luckily my friend was happy to split the desserts. This definitely went in my favour, as I’m pretty sure I ate most of her Chocolate Fondant. This gooey dessert was baked to perfection. Each course was expertly prepared and made for the perfect instagramable moments.

The set menu is priced at £49 for three course and a glass of champagne. I think this is a really good deal, especially given the five-star service, food and location. Others definitely thought so too, as we witnessed three wedding parties enjoying the set menu throughout our visit.
