The Best Autumn Brunch hangouts in London

The Bloomsbury Hotel

The Coral Room

Set on the edge of Soho, the elegant new salon bar is a dynamic addition to the London drinks scene. 

The vibrant new bar is inspired by the 1920’s and was designed with the acclaimed Martin Brudnizki. Its vivid coral coloured walls, five bespoke Murano glass chandeliers and stunning marble bar provides the perfect backdrop for pre-dinner drinks for instance.

Dalloway Terrace

Named after the eponymous character penned by Virginia Woolf, an author whose name will forever be associated with Bloomsbury, Dalloway Terrace is an elegant, poetic and quintessentially English space. Set in the heart of the historic and vibrant Bloomsbury, London’s literary centre, the
beautiful indoor-outdoor space famously undergoes seasonal changes and is accompanied by a fresh, frequently updated menu and beautiful floral installations and has been named winner of Bookatable’s ‘Best Breakfast in London’ Award two years running.
Fully heated in winter, this year-round destination restaurant promises the peace and charm of a secluded secret garden in the winter, and provides a light, elegant alfresco offering in the spring and
summer months.

Autumn has arrived and Dalloway Terrace has been transformed once again. This new incarnation embraces the gilded hues of the season with a new shining floral installation to celebrate the golden
hour with Æcorn – the world’s first range of non-alcoholic aperitifs. Now adorned with an abundance of gold-coated leaves and festooned with shimmering brushed gold butterflies, the stunning terrace – described by Vogue as “one of the world’s most Instagrammable restaurants” – has been transformed by London florists Wild at Heart. Evoking an enchanting autumnal afternoon spent beneath a glorious oak tree; Dalloway Terrace is a gleaming oasis resting under a canopy of preserved autumnal Oak and
Beech leaves, natural cork bark and golden silk leaves, in which to
enjoy golden hour with Æcorn.

New additions to the savoury menu include an array of autumnal treats,
including Smoked Trout Rillettes on Guinness Bread, Sage Chicken
Mayonnaise on Pumpernickel Bread and Cucumber Ribbons marinated
in Aecon Dry Liqueur. The Afternoon Tea is available daily between
12pm and 4pm and is priced from £40pp.
Alongside Dalloway Terrace’s autumnal Afternoon Tea, Executive Head
Chef Byron Moussouris has also made some seasonal changes to the
restaurant’s menu. Additions such as Black Fig Salad with San Daniele
Ham, Gorgonzola, Piccante, Walnuts & Carta di Musica (£12.50), Rack
of Lamb with Charred Squash, Peas & Salsa Verde (23.50) and Hot
Smoked Trout Salad with Horseradish & Soft Egg (£14) allow guests to
enjoy a true flavour of autumn.
