Upstairs, in the space adjacent to the bar; downstairs, on a huge red sofa in the central Playpen.
The fashionable end of smart casual.
On the lower level, there’s the High Road Brasserie. Set on the site of the former Foubert’s Hotel, it has art deco detailing and a vintage brass-and-marble bar, plus a terrace from which you can watch the well-heeled denizens of Chiswick. The menu is full of European classics: confit duck with cassoulet, pork chops with mustard and apple sauce, moules frites, croque monsieur, escargots… And the ribeye- and rotisserie-chicken-loaded grill will keep carnivores happy. There are also extensive breakfast and brunch offerings and a stonking Sunday roast. Upstairs at the House has all‑day dining, from breakfast at 7am until wee‑hour snacks at the weekend, and a bar. You could have breadcrumbed scallops in herb butter, mac and cheese with scamorza and parmesan, brick chicken with datterini tomatoes and basil, or a range of burgers – and plant-based and vegetarian options sprout up throughout. Sit, read, work, eat, drink – it’s very easy‑going, but a dinner reservation is advisable.
Downstairs at the House is a den‑like lounge space with three areas; it’s adults‑only in the evening, with DJs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Whisper sweet nothings over an Electric Love Potion cocktail (champagne, vanilla vodka and poached strawberries – divine). And at the brasserie, the house specials include the enticing Oaxacan Lady with mezcal, peach liqueur, passionfruit and cucumber soda; while the house tonics include a mule with a kick and an Eastern Standard with very chilled vodka or gin with lime or mint. Plus there are smoothies, well-conceived alcohol-free cocktails and pressed juices for abstainers.
Upstairs at the House serves food from breakfast at 7am until wee‑hour snacks at the weekend.
Dine in-room from 8am to 10pm, Sunday to Wednesday; till 11pm, Thursday to Saturday.
