Join us at Scarfes Bar for a weekend lunch of spirits and spice!

Every weekend from the 22nd of March until the 31st of May we are serving an inspired pairing of aged Glenfiddich Whisky and regional Indian cuisine. Executive chef Palash Mitra has worked closely with Malt Master Brian Kinsman to create a unique pairing menu. Book a table and join in this epicurean discovery! 

Scarfes Bar evokes a convivial atmosphere with a roaring fire, cosy velvet armchairs and sofa seating, bookcases filled with over 1,000 antique books hand-picked by a Portobello antique dealer and low-key lighting. The space is being lovingly evolved into a living canvas by artist Gerald Scarfe whose characterful illustrations will adorn the marble walls and discreet, intimate corners, meticulously designed by the renowned Martin Brudnizki.

With its own entrance off High Holborn, Scarfes Bar is open daily for residents and non-residents from midday to 1:00 a.m. Reservations can be made for lunch which includes spicy Indian curries, European-style casseroles and home-made pizzas and is served from noon to 3:30 p.m. whilst a range of bar snacks and light dishes such as Fried Lobster Momo’s, Veal and Mushroom Meatballs and Bengali Vegetable Chops are served throughout the evening alongside an intriguing selection of cocktails, gins and whiskies.

The bartenders are true connoisseurs of their craft from advising on beers and matching wines to preparing specially-curated cocktails, some of which are poured from a stunning silver urn that takes centre stage on the long wooden bar. With over 200 single malts and a rare specialisation in sloe gin, including the hotel’s own label of the supremely British spirit, Scarfes Bar is a must-visit in the heart of Holborn.
