There might be New Year whispers going round of a return of the ‘Beast from the East’, but that’s not putting St Ermin’s off from making it a wonderful winter. With flickering candles and cosy blankets, the scene has been set. The London hotel has transformed its terrace for winter where guests can snuggle up and shelter from the elements while enjoying delicious food and drink from a carefully selected menu.
A wide range of wines, spirits and of course mulled wine, complement dishes that celebrate the season’s finest ingredients, including a selection of moreish sharing boards. Afternoon Tea is also served on the Winter Terrace – the perfect way to savour this indulgent traditional treat.
Forget dry January. It’s all about the fizz and fine wines here! You’ll also find high spirits (to keep you in good spirits), craft beers, winter spritz for the occasion and whisky flights to give you wings.
The special Winter Terrace menu includes fried squid, black pudding and pork sausage rolls, mini fish and chips, and bubble & squeak as the individual options. Looking for something a little heartier? Then get a sharing dish for your group. Baked camembert, vegetarian sharing board, and a sticky fingers sharing board (for the meat eaters) will not disappoint. The sweet tooth options include a warm chocolate brownie, cinnamon beignets, banana tarte tatin and a sharing apple & blackberry crumble.
The Winter Terrace is open 11am-9pm (last orders 9pm).
Make a date of it by dining in Caxton Grill if you prefer the indoors. They have a superb seasonal menu that currently includes wood pigeon (I’d recommend) and squid with crispy red onion starters among others, and a very mouth-watering 35-day dry aged organic Angus rib-eye (another I’d recommend) steak, cooked in the Josper grill (an indoor charcoal oven cooking meats and fish at very high temperatures to help retain the moisture and the flavour).
