Easy London Dining Near the West End

Dining at The Academy is straightforward: start the day with a sumptuous breakfast and finish the day with something from our menu either in The Alchemy or as room service in the comfort of your own room or suites. Treat yourself to an indulgent afternoon tea at our historic hotel in Bloomsbury. Seasonal menus take the best of the British culinary scene with a few international dishes for extra depth.

Restaurant & Kitchen closure

Please be informed that due to essential maintenance work during our renovation of the Hotel, both the Restaurant & Kitchen will be closed until the end of March 2018. Unfortunately we will be unable to serve any Hot food. We will offer a limited continental breakfast selection as a takeout option. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused during this period.


Unwind With a Glass of Wine

The Alchemy Bar in London’s West End is where to unwind with a glass of wine

Rectangular low panels on the walls reference The Academy’s historical feel. But this is also a contemporary space, with violet wallpaper and gold floral patterns wrapping the room, from fireplace to bookshelf. Comfy low armchairs are positioned around coffee tables, allowing you to sink into them and put relaxation first. Items from our room service menu can be served in The Alchemy Bar.
