Formerly the Great Marlborough Street Magistrate’s Court, the Courthouse Hotel has set the scene for many famous legal cases over the years. Many remnants of bygone times have been incorporated into the current decor scheme of this luxurious five-star hotel, including a range of Robert Adams fireplaces that adorn many of the suites. There's also the judge's bench, witness stand and stage dock of the old Number One Court within the destination restaurant, and three original prison cells that hold private VIP bar tables.
Separated from the cosy lobby lounge by a set of iron bars that further set the scene, is the Bar at the Courthouse Hotel. For those in the midst of exploring a surrounding area - which is home to a number of iconic attractions, such as Hyde Park, St. James’s Palace and The British Museum - who are looking for respite and a quick snack, The Bar at the Courthouse Hotel may be just the ticket.
Choose between an array of sandwiches that include a spiced chicken tikka wrap as well as a more indulgent steak ciabatta, which comes complete with sautéed onions and mustard mayo, or nibble on one or more of the Courthouse bar's many light bites – to be enjoyed individually or as part of a sharer in the tapas style. From the sumptuous Spanish chorizo plate, which comes with an accompanying honey mustard, to the quintessentially British option in the fish finger and chips, many an appetite is catered for.
Whether it’s for a group of friends looking for a catch up, or a family looking for a rest amidst a day of activity, the Bar at the Courthouse Hotel provides a superb stop off spot from which to partake in an exquisite snack – and for a Gourmet Society card holder, the great value offered gets better.
