There are a few options when it comes to eating and drinking at myhotel. TABLE is the hotel's main restaurant and is where guests and walk-ins can enjoy all three meals throughout the day (breakfast 7am-11am, 8am-11am on weekends, lunch 12pm-3pm and dinner 5pm-10.30pm). It is run by private catering outfit Company of Cooks (who also looks after the café, see below) and is a bright, comfortable, laid back place to enjoy your meal. Breakfast is a large spread of both hot and cold options including fruit, yoghurt, cold meats and cheese, English, Irish and veggie breakfasts and a selection of drinks. There is a set pre-theatre lunch menu, while the dinner menu changes every month. Our gnocchi with oxtail was the perfect starter, while the poussin and couscous could have done without he lemon topping. The wine chosen by the chatty, but not too intrusive, waiter was a good pick from a decent selection from both the old and new worlds. For something more snacky or if you are on the go, then CUP/BOTTLE, the other side of the lobby, is a more suitable option. During the day CUP serves simple breakfast items such as patisseries and focaccie, while at lunch salads, toasties and pizzette are available together with a few sweet items such as muffins and biscotti. BOTTLE, as it is known at night, later becomes a bar where on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays the resident DJ helps to make the bar a popular hangout. The wall to the left as you enter from the lobby has been left bare for the public to come up with their own ideas for how to best put it to use, so watch that space! But it is merkaba, the hotel's bar for the smart set that is really the star of the show. Featuring pewter tables and bars, fish tanks set into the beech wood walls and ambient blue lighting, this is one of the hottest places to be, especially on the weekend. Famed for its cocktails (one of the barmen, Cam, won a Ray and Nephew competition for his whisky cocktail), the place is full every night of the week with the young(ish) and beautiful and is where people come to see and to be seen. There is a lounge just behind the bar to rent for private parties on the weekend, but it is open to the public during the rest of the week. For those worried about the noise coming from the bar during the night, don't be, as the bar is fully sound-proofed.
