The MCR – Restaurant and Bar

In line with the national Covid restrictions for England announced on Monday 4 January, the MCR will remain closed (including our delivery and collection services) until government restrictions permit reopening. Thank you for your continued support.


The MCR Restaurant & Bar is the perfect retreat for our members, guests, residents and those who work in the Inn. MCR Manager Joe and his team offer a warm welcome to friends, both old and new.

The original architecture and detailed stonework which once formed part of our Victorian kitchens, has been sensitively restored to reveal intricate botanical patterns on our stunning vaulted ceiling, creating a truly atmospheric experience.


Our culinary team have created some delicious seasonal menus for you and your guests to enjoy. From breakfast and a la carte dining to afternoon tea delights, we have a variety of offerings to suit your palate, available to dine-in and take away.

Sip and savour a perfectly curated cocktail or enjoy a tipple from our intriguing range of spirits, wines and crafted beers both draft and bottled; it’s the perfect place to unwind.


In fair weather, pull up a seat on the East Terrace.

Whilst London is in ‘Very High Tier’ status, The MCR will remain closed.
