Dalloway Terrace, Bloomsbury

The Vibe

Summers were made for Dalloway Terrace. The stunning al fresco restaurant at the back of The Bloomsbury Hotel, catch it on a sunny day and you have yourself one of the best dates in London.

As the name suggests, expect a terraced structure of tables on different levels, with either a fully exposed table or one under an awning. As part of hotel, the presentation is crisp and service impeccable. Don a white shift and some Ray Bans. Book in advance.

The Order

Brunch is where the place peaks.  Start with a punchy brunch cocktail, either the Bloomsbury Set Bloody Mary (House mix, English vodka, fresh tomato juice) or the Morning Martini (Sipsmith Gin, triple sec, marmalade, lemon juice).

If trying to be healthy-ish, go for the egg white omelet with chia seeds and spinach. Or if indulging, the Eggs Benedict, the burger or the divine chorizo and champ hash cake. Finish with another glass of crisp white – it is the weekend.

The Game


If you have a brunch date, don’t wreck yourself the night before. Wear something that channels sleek sophistication, don’t forget the shades and turn up ten minutes early. By the time your date arrives you’re nursing a cocktail and looking pretty slick. Stay for a couple of hours and then meander to Hoxton Hotel in Holborn to take coffee and chat on sofas for the rest of the afternoon.

The Faults

Not easy to get the best sun spot without a booking well in advance.
