The Mandarin is a Knightsbridge institution and must be included in our recommendations. There are two noticeable restaurants within the hotel: The Aubrey and Dinner.
The Aubrey offers private dinning suites and a very unusual Japanese dining experience. The interior is stunning with intricate details - hats off to the interior designer for making an underground space work so well. If you’re celebrating here, a cake from our Japanese Cake Collection is perfectly well suited.
Dinner is one of Heston’s restaurants and expectedly excellent with very high levels of attention to detail and a glorious art deco dining room to enjoy your meal. A tip, they serve red wine quite cool, ask for it to come to your preferred temperature in time to drink it. The Mandarin can also cater for much larger events like Weddings with a choice of function rooms overlooking Hyde Park.
If you are looking for formal French dining, you’ve won’t be disappointed with Marcus by Marcus Wareing. The menu, the ingredients and the ambience are all perfect. It is undoubtably a special occasion restaurant. There is a private dining space for up to 16 guests and they are very well their lunch menu is very popular. And afterwards you’ve got the choice of two excellent bars. The Windsor cake will perfectly compliment a celebration here.
It’s a Knightsbridge favourite for pop Japanese food and has survived the test of time. It attracts an electric crowd that provide a buzzy atmosphere. They use high quality ingredients and have designed a menu to please a wide range of tastes – it’s a crowd-pleaser with a designer interior. It’s got cool vibes with a tone of self-indulgence. If you are eating at Zuma, I think the Meta Cakes are the way to go.
Succulent steaks perfectly cooked with an array of sides and a excellent seafood offering. It may have many branches, but the quality and service is as friendly and efficient as ever. The Knightsbridge Hawksmoor is underground and one of my favourites with a big unobstructed dinning area. It’s perfectly well suited to both large and small parties and is consistently very good. They will gladly take delivery of your cake and store it properly. Top Tip: the Knightsbridge Hawksmoor has an excellent selection of wines by the glass noticeably some from the Canaries where the sommelier is from! We think our chocolate cakes would match the wooden interior of all Hawksmoor’s.
Contemporary Indian serving tapas style food. Tucked away in the Halkin Arcade, Amaya has maintained it’s Michelin star over the years, testament to it’s consistency . Easily one of our favourite Indians’ serving up exemplary cocktails and outstanding food. Don’t miss the Grilled King Scallops. Just wow. And we’ve got just the perfect cake to compliment Amaya, the Biryani Curry Cake!
It might be past it now, but we still love it from the days of Absolutely Fabulous. It’s ideal for early evening drinks, the main area is very airy and there are a small number of seats outside. And for a befitting cake, we can recommend no better than the Lady in Red Velvet - a truly stylish cake.
If you’ve arrived early and you are looking to pass 15-30mins, you can of course browse all the shops or - and we recommend - taking a short walk down Motcomb street where you will find pretty buildings and independent shops. You then off course can go and sit in Hype Park or if it's later there are a number of beautiful streets in Knightsbridge. Our favourite is Montpelier Walk, where there's a passage through a brick wall, known as the “hole in the wall”.
Knightsbridge despite been known for it’s high end everything has some brilliant pubs. Our favourite is The Grenadier tucked away on an unsuspecting mews street. It has a great atmosphere, particularly during the warmer months as patrons spill out onto the mews street.
More East London that SW this beautifully atmospheric space is a new favourite. Barely bigger than a living room and tucked away in a wellness centre, it’s exactly where you expect to find a speak easy. Theatrical cocktails are served up using all natural ingredients, all hovering around the £10 mark. Winning.
If you are aiming for a hotel bar – befitting of an evening out in Knightsbridge - we recommend the Knightsbridge classics: The Blue Bar at the Berkeley – it’s classy it’s cool and it’s blue. And the Nolita Social in the Bvlgari Hotel (London); the experience is refined with excellent cocktails and live music. The vibe is intimate - perfect for smaller groups - and classy but be warned it's only open on Friday and Saturday.
For big groups, it’s worth considering the Buddha bar. It’s fun if you are in the mood, particularly in a big group.
Knightsbridge wasn’t always such affluent area. Before modern transport systems served the area. It was a renowned haunt for highwaymen, robbers and cut-throats whom targeted travellers passing through to London. Because it wasn’t formed from a town or parish like most of London, it didn’t receive much attention being awkwardly located between four growing towns. I don’t think there were any cake shops!
Not a fun fact but somewhat interesting: the first moving staircase in the world was built in Harrods in 1898. More interesting however, until 1916 Harrods sold pure cocaine to the public to send to loved ones on the front line or for home use.
For the geek in you, Knightsbridge is the only English place name with six consecutive consonants. Can’t compete with the Welsh though: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Maybe we should call a cake this?
Harrods was started by a convicted criminal, Charles Henry Harrod. (We found that hilarious). In 1836 Harrod was convicted of receiving stolen goods (112lb of currants according to court records) and was sentenced to 7 years labour in Tasmania, from where most didn’t return. His accomplice Richard Moran went to Tasmania while Harrod successfully petitioned his sentence to be served in prison. He then petitioned his release after just a year! And now Harrods makes more money per square foot than any other store in the world. PS Harrods isn’t big on cake, so don’t go anywhere.
Knightsbridge is very well served by both buses and the tube. The nearest tube station is Knightsbridge on the Piccadilly Line. If you are travelling on the Circle or District Line you can get off at Sloane Square and either walk (about 10mins) or jump on a bus. Once you are in Knightsbridge, it's a relatively small area where you can easily walk everywhere.
