Hunter 486, located within The Arch Hotel, London is open all day and serving guests and non-residents heavenly food and drink in a casual, relaxed atmosphere, it features gleaming leather booths, blown glass chandeliers and imaginative artwork. It’s also the perfect place for celebrity spotting as the queen of pop, Madonna, lives directly opposite the hotel (check out the picture!)
This is a beautiful hotel (I was lucky enough to be shown a couple of the rooms but despite my best efforts of trying to bed-down in there I didn’t stay). The restaurant is warm and cosy and even has private booths with curtains that go around it for the most special guest (Madonna maybe). Its a wonderful place to go for a couple of glasses of champagne or a gorgeous dinner.
I dined on the Best of butcher’s board (rib eye with rosemary oil, mini burgers and braised short ribs £48 to share) and Sticky toffee pudding with caramelised banana ice cream (£6.50) for desert. I haven’t stopped dreaming about the meat since that night and I am aching to go back and have it again! And any restaurant that throws a couple of Yorkshire Puddings on the plate gets a massive thumbs up from me!
If you fancy splashing out on a bit of luxury, or are looking for somewhere special to go with friendly service and great food, Hunter 486 is certainly a great option. I’m already planning my next trip!
