Venture to The Capital – Adam Simmonds Moves Into Knightsbridge

If you enjoy being an early adopter, then here’s a heads up to book The Capital’s new restaurant with culinary maestro Adam Simmonds at the helm, ahead of the official launch at the end of September. Adam takes on the hotel’s illustrious food reputation and continues the legacy set by predecessors Nathan Outlaw, Eric Chavot, Gary Rhodes, Brian Turner and Richard Shepherd. We check-out Adam’s sought-out creations stirring up an early buzz with reviewers, available now.


He’s filling big shoes, but then again Adam Simmonds has notched up a glowing reputation with longstanding Michelin stars during his tenures at Ynyshir Hall in Wales and Danesfield House in Marlow, and is now gunning on drawing attention to the boutique hotel just across from Harrods.

Roasted loin of lamb, slow cooked belly, tomato fondue, smoked aubergine puree, fermented garlic basil oil and lovage puree

His vision for the menu is a perfect balance of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. Presenting light modern English cuisine, simple and subtle in equal measure.

The restaurant and hotel is both a swish neighbourhood restaurant and shoppers paradise – it benefits from the quiet of a residential street at the heart of Knightsbridge, but with Harrods at one end of the street and Harvey Nichols the other.

Adam has also created a Knightsbridge Afternoon Tea which is available at an exceptional £35 pp *, or with free-flowing Prosecco £42 pp, or with a glass of champagne £45 pp.
