Holborn Dining Room can be found inside the beautiful Rosewood Hotel in Holborn. The menu is British, the atmosphere is fun and lively, the service is friendly. The interior combines red leather and tartan-trimmed banquettes, polished marble floors and reclaimed oak, we love the high ceilings that retain some of the original character of the building.

To begin our evening, we ordered two glasses of "R" de Ruinart, NV, a beautifully zesty champagne, and perfect to prepare the palate for some fine food. Moving on we ordered the Chicken Salad with Avocado and Smoked Bacon. A simple dish, but perfectly prepared and super delicious. My partner ordered the Maldon Smoked Salmon, with Crab and Spiced Avocado. Another delicious starter which we would happily order again, the Spiced Avocado worked very well with the Crab.

“We had a super evening from the moment we arrived.”

For our main course we ordered the 16oz Dover Sole, which was served with Brown Butter, Lemon and Parsley. The sole was gorgeous, very tender and flavoursome. My partner ordered the 50 day aged Cornish Rare Breed Sirloin which was served with a Béarnaise Sauce. The Sirloin was cooked exactly how we specified, the flavour and texture was perfection. We added sides of New Potatoes in Minted Butter, Creamed Potatoes and Steamed Spinach. Our main courses were superb and we were happy to hand back our plates completely clear.

We finished off the evening by sharing a Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream for dessert. This is a fine example of the classic British dessert. Our chosen wine for the evening was a bottle of Rosso di Montalcino, Castiglion del Bosco, Tuscany, Italy, 2012. This wine is very pleasant on the palate and carries a range of delicate aromas.

We had a super evening from the moment we arrived. Holborn Dining Room has an interesting and varied menu, we’re sure you will find something to suit your tastes and you will have an enjoyable evening, it certainly gets a recommendation from us.
