Alpine Dining in the City




When it comes to festive fun, London get's it right year after year. However, instead of telling you all about the obvious ones...Winter Wonderland, Ice Skating at Somerset House, etc...I thought I'd tell you about our very own Alpine Lodge, located right in the heart of the city. There's a few of these dotted around London, Dalloway Terrace being the obvious choice, however around this time of the year they're more often than not completely packed out...honestly, try getting a reservation for a Friday or Saturday - completely impossible! 

Which brings me to my hidden alpine secret - Lodge D'Argent. Lodge D'Argent is the festive version of the restaurant, Coq D'Argent, and trust me when I say, it's complete festive goals! The restaurant is located right next to Bank station, on the roof terrace of 1 Poultry, so perfect for an after work treat. 

For the festive season, the bar and terrace area of the restaurant have been completely transformed into your typical alpine lodge - perfect for giving you all of the Christmas feels! The sheepskin blankets and patio heaters are on hand to keep you toasty while you indulge in one of their signature festive cocktails and take in the dreamy city views. 

The restaurant is located inside, and is unfortunately not lodge themed, but perfect all the same. It is quite pricey, which reflects the quality of the food, but if you're on more of a budget then I'd recommend heading over on a Sunday to take full advantage of their brunch menu. On Sundays, you can get two courses for £26 or 3 courses for £29. As the price difference was so teeny, we decided to go all out with the full three course brunch - which was absolutely divine. For starters I indulged in the most delicious black truffle and ricotta tortellini, followed by Croque Madame, and I couldn't resist the creme brûlée to finish. 

If you're looking for some festive fun and exquisite dining, then I'd definitely recommend heading over to Lodge D'Argent - and if you're into your city views, then head over at night as they've got a lovely view of the gherkin!
