Complimentary Glass of Champagne when Dining at Le Café Anglais
A new landmark restaurant, Le Café Anglais opened in November 2007, adjacent to the Whiteley’s centre in west London. Chef owner Rowley Leigh has created a large, bustling brasserie with menus that he describes as “both proudly English and yet utterly unashamed of our debt to France”.
With views across the rooftops and looking along Queensway to Kensington Gardens, Le Café Anglais has magniﬁcent ﬂoor-to-ceiling windows, leather banquettes, satin curtains and linen tablecloths. It is an ideal venue for weekday lunches, weekend family brunches, early evening suppers or post-theatre or cinema dinner. There is also a bar for up to 30 people with a superb range of aperitifs. The private dining room is available for lunch, dinner or receptions, and can seat up to 26, or 75 for cocktail parties.
Bon Vivant’s members receive a complimentary glass of champagne when dining in the restaurant.
