    The Mirror Room can be found hiding inside Rosewood Hotel in Holborn. The Rosewood Hotel newly opened, following a huge £85million refurbishment of the historic Pearl Assurance Company building. The impressive hotel stands proud in High Holborn with smartly dressed doormen who greet you before entering.

    Our evening began with a couple of cocktails at the bar. Our table was in the perfect position to enjoy the live jazz they had playing and watch our cocktails being crafted.

    We enjoyed the following cocktails:

    A ‘Thyme Out’ - Bombay dry gin, Charteuse Yellow, lemon juice and thyme with a dash of orange bitters

    A ‘Bubble & Shrubs’ - Sipsmith gin, St. Germain Elderflower, home-made berry shrubs, a dash of orange bitters, topped with sparking wine

    A ‘Pisco Punch’ - Aba Pisco, Licor 43, pineapple, lime juice and egg white

    And finally, a ‘Clover Club’ - Bombay Sapphire gin with Dolin dry and rosso vermouths, raspberry syrup, lemon juice and egg white

    The cocktails certainly deliver an unusual offering from the norm, and we enjoyed each one as much as the last.

    “The service was exceptional and the food was very impressive.”

    After our cocktails, we continued through to The Mirror Room, where we were introduced to the menu. Although it was busy and full of people, we still felt very well looked after and our waiter took the time to explain the menu to us thoroughly and answered our questions. The lavish interiors of The Mirror Room were enhanced by the relaxing sound of the pianist, who was playing live throughout our meal.

    To start, we opted for the prawn cocktail and their heirloom beetroot salad with “Little Wallop” goat’s cheese. Both were very impressive and beautifully presented.

    For our main courses we chose the poached turbot with lemon and a pistachio dressing, and the crispy Dover sole, served with chips and truffle mayonnaise. Again, we were suitably impressed by the delicious flavours, the freshness of the fish and the obvious skill in the cooking.

    To accompany our meal, we enjoyed a bottle of the 2011 Sicilian Tenuta Delle Terre Nere, Etna Rosso.

    The service was exceptional and the food was very impressive. The only qualm we had with The Mirror Room was that the seating was a little uncomfortable; however, this could be a subjective observation.

    All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. If you’re looking for a sophisticated evening full of good food and beautiful cocktails, this is the place to go.
