A grand old mansion on Hyde Park Corner, The Lanesborough’s world-class level of luxury and service tends to be the preserve of celebs and oligarchs. Assuming you're not up for its stratospherically priced rooms with a personal butler thrown in, you can buy into the hotel's glamour by dining at Céleste – not as inaccessible as you might think if you go for the set-price menu du jour – beneath a glass-domed ceiling and shimmering chandeliers. The cooking is in the modern French style, blending classic techniques with a contemporary eye for light, fresh flavours in supremely elegant dishes that celebrate first-class British ingredients: exquisite halibut is matched with a riot of Jerusalem artichoke – crushed, puréed, crispy skin, and in a truffle-dusted bon bon – and deftly aromatised with truffle shavings and chicken jus. Caramelised red apple, green apple sorbet, pine nut crumble and elderflower mousse provide a classy finish.
