Marco Pierre White Wheeler's of St. James's Oyster Bar & Grill Room
There is a reason why the dining experience at Threadneedles is one of the most revered in the City
: The Oyster Bar & Grill Room features menus conceived by the enigmatic Marco Pierre White, the godfather of modern British cooking.
The bar - the old banking counter - is a quintessential piece of Threadneedles’ heritage, where you can pull up a stool for a light lunch or late dinner, and enjoy Champagne and freshly shucked oysters, including Maldon English natives and Irish Carlingford Rocks. Regularly changing dishes from the blackboard might include the likes of salt and pepper squid with a lime mayonnaise, a Scottish steak sandwich with triple cooked fries or a Wheeler’s club sandwich.
The dome lounge is the beating heart of Threadneedles. Located in the former banking hall, its iconic glass dome marks the centrepiece of the hotel. During daytime, natural light floods in as you fall into low leather chairs; it’s a spot for business lunches or casual afternoon drinks. In the evening the architecture is just as impressive, with a convivial atmosphere oriented around cocktails.
At Threadneedles, you can indulge in luxury hotel room service 24 hours a day. The ease of dining in-room is made even more tempting with a selection of light options and sides, and an extensive list of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. During the evening, order from the lounge and bar menu but enjoy it in the comfort of your room.
Afternoon tea at Threadneedles Hotel is enjoyed in the magnificent lounge

For an extra special afternoon tea, indulge in a glass of Champagne and let the rest of the day flow by.
Please note: afternoon tea must be booked in advance and is subject to charges in the event of cancellation
