Booton, the former head chef at Alyn Williams at the Westbury, has created a series of set menus. For lunch, expect dishes of brisket pie, sauce bordelaise and celeriac; or smoked sturgeon, parsley sauce and crisp parsley roots (two courses £23, or three courses £30). Dinner, meanwhile, will be a richer affair with a choice of four pre-starters, including scallop ceviche; starters such as glazed veal sweetbread, lentils, maitake and celeriac; and main course delights such as The Grill lobster thermidor tart or Herdwick rack of lamb, ratatouille and boulangère potatoes (£60 for three courses or £75 for four; £20 supplement for lobster). There is also a standalone menu for vegetarians.

For the grand finale, diners can indulge at the interactive pudding bar, where its pastry chefs will tempt them with treats such as banoffee tart with roasted banana ice cream or the Double Decker – a dessert inspired by the chocolate bar, which was named after the London red buses that pass the 88-year-old hotel in Park Lane on a daily basis.
