Located within one of the world's oldest and most prestigious auction houses, Michelin-starred Bonhams Restaurant is the perfect Mayfair destination for lunch or simply to relax with coffee or a glass of wine.
Our Restaurant also affords you the opportunity to sample some of the world's great wines at affordable prices. Selected by Richard Harvey, Master of Wine and Head of Bonhams Wine department, and Charlotte Logan Jones, our sommelier, the constantly evolving, eclectic list currently includes Burgundies from Sylvain Cathiard, Jean Grivot and Comte Lafon, Château Lynch-Bages 1985 and Cheval Blanc 1982.
At least twenty wines are always available by the glass or you can enjoy our excellent house wine, imported direct from the small Domaine Saint-Amant in the southern Rhone.
Appropriately for a chef running a restaurant in an auction house, Tom Kemble completed an art history degree before deciding where his destiny lay. Having worked in such eponymous restaurants as Hedone in West London and Faviken in northern Sweden, Tom takes a natural approach to dishes, cooking instinctively and sensitively with exceptional produce in peak condition.
Having worked in other Mayfair institutions such as The Square and Pollen Street Social, Amy brings a wealth of experience and a natural warmth to the restaurant floor.
Over 10 years’ experience in wine, and having travelled extensively around the European and Australian wine regions, Charlotte manages the 200 strong wine list at Bonhams. She works closely with Tom to ensure the wine pairings are balanced with his subtle yet flavoursome food.
The aim of our list is to offer a good selection of well-made interesting and affordable wines which complement Tom Kemble’s food. Many of the wines have come from our regular sales here in New Bond Street and we are constantly on the look out to buy in one-off parcels of exciting and rarely available wines. These can be served by the glass or 50cl carafe thanks to the two Enomatic machines we have installed and we hope you will take this chance to try some legendary wines.View wine list
Open Monday-Friday from 12.00-2.30, and Friday evening for our Tasting Menu from 7pm.
Please note, we do not allow corkage on Friday evening, and guests are required to leave the premises by midnight.
The Observer’s Jay Rayner declares former Fäviken chef Tom Kemble’s cooking at “hidden gem” Bonhams, London W1, so good that he almost didn’t want to tell anyone about it.
