The Colony Grill Room is a brasserie inside The Beaumont Hotel, serving everything from a dressed up hot dog for £11.50 to a whole lobster and fries for £47.50. Yes, there’s enough gold detailing and black and white portraits of 30s screen sirens to remind you you’re in Mayfair, but the food is actually both very tasty and home-cooked comforting. Grab one of the leather booths for a breakfast of buttermilk pancakes or come in the evening and make your way through their vast whisky collection, Don Draper style.
