Eating and Drinking
A relaxed, intimate place to eat and drink with friends and family. By day, the Lodge serves Fortnum’s favourites like Welsh Rarebit and our signature Skate Extras, including the Chocolossus Hot Chocolate, Fondue and Wine for Two, and Smoked Salmon, Caviar and Blinis. By night, the bar serves up spirits and cocktails alongside festive perennials including Champagne, Mulled Cider and a very tipsy-making take on Hot Chocolate.
Beside the rink, the Skate Lounge has a front-row view of the ice. New for 2016, the Skate Lounge will serve a selection of Jägermeister long drinks and cocktails, which skaters and spectators can enjoy within a rustic alpine setting whilst enjoying the scenes outside.
Fernandez & Wells
In the West Wing, Fernandez & Wells café and bar marks the return of the ice rink with seasonal specials: toasted banana sourdough and butter, hunks of artisan panettone and mince pies, alongside merguez hot dogs and mulled Spanish Lacuesta Vermut with a slice of orange.
In the New Wing, the stylish Pennethorne’s offers an extensive list of drinks: contemporary cocktails, craft beers and wines, plus coffees and teas. Enjoy simple, quality food all day: sandwiches, salads, soups and stews for lunch; small plates such as beef cheek on toast and smoked mackerel; plus nibbles including maple-glazed bacon peanuts and gordal olives.
In a restored 19th-century drawing room in the New Wing, Spring is chef Skye Gyngell’s first solo venture. Guided by the changing seasons, Spring’s menu changes daily and might include the likes of slow-cooked pork with sage, fennel and blood orange, or sirloin with Jerusalem artichokes, grilled leeks, cime di rapa and aïoli. The extensive wine list is supplemented by inventive cocktails, seasonal juices, and house-made liqueurs and minerals.
In the South Wing, Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens' restaurant Tom’s Kitchen offers a menu rich in fresh, seasonal ingredients. The menu might include the likes of shepherd’s pie, venison casserole, truffle pappardelle, crab cakes, steaks and burgers for lunch and dinner. Drinks include wines, cocktails, coffees and craft beers.
