The Most Christmas Decorations at London Restaurants | Hot dinners recommend
If you want to go to a place that is sure to give the most grumpy Londoners all the party vibes, these London restaurants and pubs have truly got the Christmas mission.
Kensington – 112 Draycott Ave, London SW3 3AE
Festooned would be the right word to use here; the incredible amount of baubles that were used to make Kensington’s Restaurant Christmas veranda is truly mind-boggling. Order yourself an Italian Hot Toddy from their festive cocktail menu and enjoy!

Knightsbridge – 239 Brompton Rd, London SW3 2EP
Throughout the year, Elan Cafes are united in their Elle Woods-level devotion to the color pink. For Christmas, they kept it and funneled it through their Brompton Road store in a display inspired by Duncan’s toy box from Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

Covent Garden – 35 The Market, London WC2E 8RF
The living ceiling of Sushi Samba’s Operation WC2 has been made super Christmas with the arrival of oversized Christmas baubles. Book brunch here for their Kobe Beef Benedictines, and have pity on the weary shoppers below in the plaza who haven’t had your forethought.

Mayfair – 20 Mount St, London W1K 2HE
Celebrities who stroll on the terrace of Scott’s in Mayfair can feast on the new winter showcase that the seafood spot has set up in collaboration with the champagne house Perrier Jouet. That’s all very Art deco with a huge man in the moon at the entrance of the restaurant.

Wandsworth – Wandsworth Bridge Road, London SW6 2TY
If your taste for all things Christmas leans towards Narnia, then the Alpine Lodge at this open-air Wandworth space (not to be confused with Winter Wonderland) is the place for you. The rows of spaces covered in faux fur stretch for what appear to be miles. Order fondue and pigs on the couverture and settle in for the night.

Kensington – 119 Kensington Church St, London W8 7LN
Why opt for a ridiculous Christmas tree when you can instead tie nearly a hundred outside your pub? Coming from the âmore is moreâ design school, this Kensington pub is an Instagram dream every Christmas.

Mayfair – Brook Street, London W1K 4HR
You can always count on this Mayfair Grande Dame hotel to create a tasteful Christmas decoration and this year’s one is especially beautiful. There are doors with wintry arbors, paper lanterns, and a reef in their Dior Christmas tree whose bright display casts stars throughout the hotel lobby. Magic.

Covent Garden – 33 King Street, London WC2E 8JD
The main dining room of this most romantic London restaurant has had a makeover for Christmas, removing the usual floral branches and replacing them with sparkling garlands of baubles. Add to that the roaring fire and you have a totally festive scene.

Mayfair – 9 Conduit St, London W1S 2XG
Don’t come here if you’re looking for something to suit a Hallmark movie backdrop – this year Sketch’s Christmas installation has gone for a neon Vegas theme instead. Inside you’ll find pine trees alongside palm trees and arcade machines.

Mayfair – 46 Berkeley Square, London W1J 5AT
We have to make a special mention for Annabel’s where every year there has to be a committee that meets to rack their brains to determine how, in the name of God, they are going to surpass the seasonal extravagance of last year. While most Londoners do not have the membership that allows you to enter, nothing prevents you from heading to Berkeley Square to admire the huge gingerbread house that has taken over their frontage of Berkeley Square and is ask how the heck they got permission to install it.
