Dining at The Milestone is an event as much as a meal. Wherever you are - the ornate Chenestons with its fine mahogany furniture, the chic conservatory, or the split-level Stables Bar - there's more than enough time for relaxed conversation and magnificent food. And inspired by the fact that our front door is virtually within Champagne cork popping range of Kensington Gardens, why not enjoy our famous 'picnic in the park'. Our chef, Kim Sjobakk, and his team make their mark serving a fine cuisine with an accent on modern British dishes. They balance their natural creativity with a superb range of traditional comfort foods and a willingness to cook something special just for you. If they have the ingredients to hand (organic and, wherever possible, locally sourced), they'll rustle up exactly what you want, when you want. There's a fine choice of wine too: more than 400 vintages, many of them personally chosen by our Head Sommelier, Lia Poveda. Passion for fine wines and gourmet food are the driving force behind everything we serve at The Milestone Hotel.
