Dalloway Terrace

I was feeling distinctly not in a Christmas mood or spirit until I experienced the wonderful winter wonderland that Dalloway Terrace have created in this pocket of Bloomsbury. I love this area having spent years at the British Museum and the Bloomsbury set linger with constant reminders such as Dalloway which was named after a character created by Virginia Woolf. Tucked away in the corner of the hotel this little wonderland is quite magical. It is not only restricted to the winter season as it has a rectractable roof and a large white screen accommodates the Dalloway film club when the weather allows.

The head chef is Peter del Campo previously at Blakes Hotel, another great London original. Menu is imaginative and delicious we enjoyed the most wonderful champagne brunch which included Dorset Crab on toast, salt and pepper squid, lobster taco and a Bloomsbury Club sandwich and just in case we were still peckish and because it would be yet another fantastic feast for the eyes a white chocolate fondue! Pier Marcolini is the chocolatier of choice here and the hot chocolate was also amazing.

Wonderful extra touches include a hot water bottle on request and an after dinner digestive tipple and on the outer terrace there is a little pop up style cabin for mulled wine and champagne. We were very well tended to with a cheerful and informative team. This magical experience is going to be in situ until mid January due to its popularity so make sure you visit! If the feast for the eyes is not enough there is also a beautiful flower stall with all your christmas floral touches to hand !!
