Description
"Just off Kensington High Street, the award-winning Milestone Hotel's Cheneston Restaurant offers a spot of luxury for lunch and dinner. Reminiscent of a stately home, the room's focal point is the fancy fireplacein front of which charming staff pass to and fro attending to your every need. Our Executive Chef's international menu focuses on Modern British quisine, and his deserts are simply Divine - try sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and clotted cream washed down with a sweet glass of Muscat de Rivesaltes 1998. Splendid."
