Oak panelling, stone pillars and handsome tables with leather chairs and banquettes, give the Landseer Restaurant and Bar a members' club air that feels both retro and very modern. The honest ingredients and lightness of touch evident in every dish created by Head Chef Paul O'Brien lend a contemporary twist to the space, and have created a reputation for the Landseer as a destination in its own right. The bar is a wood-panelled gem, with a fine cocktail list and some rare and expertly chosen wines, beers and spirits.
