Luxury restaurant in London – 1901 Restaurant


1901 restaurant introduces the City of London to an entirely fresh and dynamic approach to fine dining. The menu has been built around a respect for the best and most diverse home grown produce that Britain has to offer, which 1901 delivers in style.

Set in what was once the Great Eastern Hotel’s original ballroom, this magnificent Grade two listed room provides a stunning setting to dine at any time of the day. On arrival guests can enjoy pre-dinner cocktails and Champagne in 1901’s Wine Bar, or around the main restaurant’s centrepiece ‘floating’ Cocktail Bar. Set underneath one of London’s original stained glass domes, our bartender serves from the outside of the bar so our guests can enjoy the interaction as their cocktail comes to life.

As a backdrop to the restaurant, a dedicated cheese and wine cellar entices guests to taste the best of British cheeses and top wines from around the world, guided by our professional sommeliers and cheese specialists.

Indulge in traditional English Afternoon Tea in 1901 restaurant from Monday to Saturday from 3pm.

Group bookings of up to 25 people can be accommodated for all dining times, and up to 12 guests can be seated around the unique rustic cheese & wine table.

Ideal for London weddings or corporate events, 1901 restaurant is also available for exclusive hire, accommodating up to 120 for a seated dinner or 250 for a cocktail reception.
