THE GARDEN AT NUMBER SIXTEEN
Nestled away on Sumner Place in West London, is Number Sixteen with its peaceful garden. An extension of The Orangery restaurant, decorated by Kit Kemp and featuring handpicked works of art, the garden is graced with mulberry trees, blooming hydrangeas, a koi pond and a wooden pagoda. Here, both in house and external guests can enjoy breakfast, a classic afternoon tea, or seasonal dishes from the à la carte menu.
