The Burberry café offers a menu of quintessentially British classics, from afternoon tea to lobster with chips, and is opened seven days a week. Of course, it won’t just serve any produce: Thomas’s will offer the finest seasonal ingredients from small farmers and artisan suppliers across the UK. The interior has an Art Deco appeal, with lantern chandeliers, large windows and black and white marble floors.
The brand’s chief creative and chief executive officer Christopher Bailey said he “wanted to create a space where our customers can spend time relaxing and enjoying the world of Burberry in a more social environment”.
The area will also house a gifting space, where you buy a quick present for a lucky friend or family member after your meal. Among the gifts on offer, some of which can be personalised with a monogramming service, are home furnishing items, games, canvas tote bags with maps of London and stationery.
