Cheneston's Restaurant

Delectable Dining

Deriving its name from an early spelling of Kensington, Cheneston's is our intimate and homely restaurant, offering the finest British cuisine.
As you step in from the bustling city streets of Kensington you will be struck by the immaculately traditional décor, fine mahogany furniture, richly toned wood panelling and the abundance of natural daylight pouring in from the Victorian leaded windows.  Enter a world of calm sophistication and sumptuous luxury in our dining room, a room full of character, reflecting the distinctive period architecture of the building. It’s hard to imagine a more comfortable and welcoming environment in which to relax over lunch or dinner, with discreet yet attentive service to match.

Best of Modern British

Here you’ll enjoy exceptional cuisine with an emphasis on cutting-edge British cookery, prepared with the highest quality of fresh ingredients and prime cuts of meat. The dishes you find on the menu are also influenced by Beatrice Tollman, President and Founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection who has a particular passion for food.

We offer fine dining but in a warm and friendly atmosphere, free of unnecessary formality. Our impressive wine list includes over 300 expertly selected vintages for you to savour. If you have a specific favourite that doesn’t feature in our cellar, please ask us and we will be more than happy to try and meet your request.

Ultimate Breakfast Experience

Breakfast at The Milestone harks back to an earlier era when this was a hearty affair, and definitely not one to be rushed. We offer a gargantuan selection of options to satisfy every possible taste and inclination. Cooked choices range from a traditional full English breakfast with eggs prepared however you like, to any omelette you can think of, or French toast, pancakes and waffles served with fruit, cream and maple syrup; to kippers or smoked haddock, with the chef’s signature dish being eggs benedict.

The continental buffet is too vast to describe in full, but includes a huge selection of different fruit options, eight types of cereal, luxury muesli and granola, organic yogurts, salamis, hams and smoked salmon, a spread of cheeses and pickles, a wide choice of breads and tempting trays of croissants and Danish pastries. If you really want to take your time, in especially relaxed surroundings, enjoy this indulgent spread in the Park Lounge, arguably the most beautiful breakfast spot in all of London. The light-filled conservatory also makes a wonderful setting for the first meal of the day.

Dining in the Oratory

For those special occasions, intimate private dinners, lunches, breakfasts or afternoon teas, the circular Oratory, with its ornate vaulted ceiling and wood panelling, is perfect. Located next to the main restaurant (and once the private chapel of the original house), the Oratory provides an enchanting space for up to eight guests.
