Signature dishes such as the whole grilled Dover Sole with chive and butter sauce are a firm favourite and all our dishes are prepared using the finest of fresh ingredients. The dishes you find on the menu combine the talents of the Rubens' Head Chef with the influence of Beatrice Tollman, President and Founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, who has a particular passion for food.
There is no better place to enjoy this treasured English traditional than in the Palace Lounge overlooking the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace.
