I had breakfast and it was great. It is a buffet style but very high quality. It has your typical English breakfast and all the other things as well.

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
