Join us on a culinary adventure that celebrates the flavours of the seasons and showcases the best produce in our exceptional British menu.
In a world where sustainability has become a top priority, The Ritz London stands out as a beacon of excellence. As a member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association with a prestigious 3-star rating, The Ritz Restaurant takes pride in offering an exceptional British dining experience that focuses on seasonality, sustainability, and the highest quality of ingredients.
Following the seasons
At the heart of The Ritz Restaurant lies a deep appreciation for seasonality. Executive Chef, John Williams MBE masterfully designs breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus that harmonise with the ever-changing seasons. By utilising ingredients when they are naturally abundant, their flavours are elevated to their utmost potential. Imagine savouring dishes featuring Delica pumpkin, celeriac, and wild mushrooms during the golden hues of autumn. Spring brings the joy of succulent Suffolk lamb, Jersey Royal potatoes, and fresh asparagus, while summer delights with the vibrant sweetness of Kentish strawberries and courgettes. Each plate is a testament to the magic that happens when nature and culinary expertise intertwine.
Seasonality is a key factor to look out for on menus for diners. When you choose a meal from a seasonal menu, you are not only treating your taste buds but also making a sustainable choice. By sourcing locally whenever possible, The Ritz reduces the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation. Supporting British farmers and producers not only benefits the environment but also strengthens local communities. It’s a win-win situation where you can relish in the knowledge that your dining experience is leaving a positive impact.
The fruits of the sea
The United Kingdom is blessed with a stunning coastline teeming with marine life. At The Ritz, we embrace the riches of the sea by working closely with our suppliers to ensure sustainable sourcing practices. From the pristine waters of the Isle of Mull to the rugged beauty of Cornwall, our seafood delights are a testament to the purity and quality of British waters. Succulent scallops, delectable turbot, and sea bass that melts in your mouth—each dish tells a story of a pristine ecosystem preserved for generations to come.
Sitting down for dinner in London in The Ritz Restaurant and a fresh plate of expertly prepared Isle of Mull Scallop, Avocado and Citrus arrives at your table to start your Epicurean Journey; in just one bite you are instantly transported to the British coast – there is nothing quite like it.
The taste of the English countryside in a glass
Raise a glass to the remarkable transformation happening in English winemaking. The Ritz proudly serves a selection of outstanding English wines on The Ritz Livre du Vin menu, including wine from Nyetimber, Gusbourne, Camel Valley, and Chapel Down. As the climate and terroir evolve, English vineyards are producing exceptional grape varieties like Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay, traditionally associated with European regions. With their shorter transportation distances and lower carbon footprint, English wines not only impress with their quality but also contribute to a more sustainable dining experience. We’ll drink to that.
As such, celebrations at The Ritz can now be accompanied by a glass of English Sparkling wine as an alternative to the customary glass of Champagne. Or why not try an English Chardonnay or Pinot Noir with your lunch or dinner, expertly paired by our Sommelier team? As a final English tipple, Ice Cyder from Somerset is on the menu to accompany a Michelin-starred dessert.
A Grand Finale
As a celebration restaurant, our guests often wish to make the most of their lunch or dinner and continue the experience after dessert has been served. Our Artisan Cheese Trolley is just the thing to round off a Michelin-starred culinary experience and as it makes its way around the dining room, it is impossible to resist.
No dining experience at The Ritz is complete without indulging in the finest artisanal cheeses. The UK is home to over 750 exceptional cheeses, and The Ritz Restaurant has curated a selection of the best. From the rich flavours of Baron Bigod to the distinctive tang of Stinking Bishop, every cheese on the trolley tells a story of craftsmanship and passion. Allow our knowledgeable team to guide you through a journey of textures and tastes, complementing your meal with the perfect cheese pairing, served tableside
At The Ritz London, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it’s a way of life. Through our commitment to seasonal dining, sustainable sourcing, and supporting local producers, we create an extraordinary luxury dining experience that delights both your palate and your conscience.
