A glorious hotel with a magnificent history, the Washington Hotel plays host to some exquisite dining areas, the more informal of them being Madison’s Bar.
Now accepting the tastecard, diners can call in advance with their card and be welcomed into Madison’s Bar with open arms and an excellent discount on all food ordered.
Originally built at the beginning of the 19th century just before the Great War, or WWI, the Washington Hotel quickly acted as the Ladies United Services Club, where well-wishing ladies assisted at Victoria Station with wounded soldiers returning from the battlefield. After the war had ended the hotel resumed business as usual and saw a host of eccentric celebrities, such as the American actress Tallulah Bankhead, the Italian painter Pietro Annigoni and the American socialite Laura Corrigan, as well as hiring the famous singer David Whitfield as its resident singer before his talents were recognised by the rest of world.
Guests can enquire about all this rich history and more as they settle in and get comfortable at the Madison’s Bar, where an exemplary ensemble of bar bites and delightful dishes go hand in hand with the irresistible drinks stocked at the bar.
Those looking for nothing more than some sumptuous snacks can find the likes of the heavenly breaded brie wedges, the delicious buffalo chicken wings, the tantalising Dum Dum and the classic nachos, covered with melted cheese, salsa and guacamole. Light bites, like a wealth of sandwiches and Paninis, also make for ideal accompaniments to drinks, as well as a great lunch time option for those who like to dine in style.
Slightly more satisfying dishes, such as refreshing salads and hearty burgers, are also served, so no matter what the craving there’s sure to be something wondrous for all walks of life at Madison’s Bar at The Washington Hotel.
