Situated in the former Duke of Westminster stables, which once housed Lord Astor’s most prized fillies it will adopt an equestrian theme in its décor.

The Astor Grill is full of character offering a simple and informal approach to dining at Cliveden. The Astor Grill will be overseen by Executive Chef André Garrett and it focuses on a mixture of classic American and British dishes, many reminiscent of Cliveden’s diverse owners and residents.

It will include such dishes as Astor Grill Cobb Salad, Grilled Rib of Earl of Stonham English Wagyu and Beef Wellington.



The name – The Astor Grill – recalls the Astor family, who owned the house from the early 1900s. William Waldorf Astor, America’s richest citizen, then gave the house to his son and daughter-law, Nancy Astor, in 1906, and Cliveden became a vibrant social hub for guests as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill.


The Astor Grill today will be a cosmopolitan venue which is steeped in history. Its romantic setting offers all the style and legendary hospitality that Cliveden is famous for, and it will be the perfect place to escape to enjoy a late brunch, early lunch, or a relaxed supper.



The gilded clocktower will provide a landmark to guests searching out this exciting new addition.

“There are two things that characterise André Garrett’s cooking for me. The first is balance: every single dish is executed with precise, mutually enhancing harmony. The second is an ability to combine the remarkable with the familiar. Dishes here are special, not because they’re outlandish or bang on trend, but because quality ingredients are cooked flawlessly.”  Elizabeth Carter, Editor, Waitrose Good Food Guide 2015
