This central London boutique hotel restaurant combines the best of stately elegance and casual dining. In addition, Hunter 486, located in The Arch London, has a diverse menu and outstanding food. Named after the 1950s dialing code for Marylebone (Hunter 486), the restaurant features locally sourced food, stone oven cooking and well-priced daily specials.

I dined at Hunter 486 while a guest of The Arch London in June. My London based friend James joined me allowing me to sample a larger variety of items from the menu. While deciding what to order we enjoyed a glass of wine from the bar.

For my first course I chose the quinoa, rocket, grilled vegetables, and Rosary goat’s cheese salad with basil dressing. I enjoyed the combination of textures and flavors. James started with the equally delicious crab, avocado and pink grapefruit salad.

Our starters were accompanied by soda bread, olive oil and butter. Never much impressed with soda bread in the past, I enjoyed this bread so much that I asked for seconds!

Flat Iron steak and Béarnaise sauce was served with sweet potato fries, tomatoes and a grilled mushroom. My flat iron steak was cooked exactly as ordered, medium rare and delicious. However, the star of the plate for me was the simple grilled mushroom. I do not know how they seasoned or cooked this mushroom, but I was swooning with pleasure at each bite and could have consumed several more.

James was pleased with his entrée of Rack of Lamb with crushed Royal Jersey potatoes and spring vegetables served in an herb broth. I found the lamb to be seasoned to perfection and served at just the right temperature.

Having declared ourselves too full for another bite after the main course we still managed to split an irresistible Chocolate Fondant served with peanut brittle and ice cream.

Our after dinner tea and coffee were served with miniature cookies and fudge. I truly could not take another bite this time, but James assured me that they were both delightful.

This central London boutique hotel restaurant also serves a daily Express Menu from 12pm to 7pm at only 19 pounds for two courses and 21 pounds for three courses. In addition Sunday Roast is served from 12pm to 10pm on Sundays. Some items on the Hunter 486 menu change with the season. You can call to find out the daily specials which are also displayed at the entrance to the hotel.

Hunter 486 Location

I often think of hotel restaurants as a place you eat when you are too tired to venture out in the evening. However, I would go out of my way to dine again at Hunter 486 no matter where I was staying. Luckily for travelers its location is convenient, only a few blocks from the Marble Arch station, just off of Oxford Street, at 50 Great Cumberland Place.
