British foundations, international inspiration

116 at The Athenaeum is a contemporary, British restaurant headed up by Executive Chef, Ian Howard. Relaxed yet chic interiors paired with inimitable service create a warm atmosphere to dine in. The inspiring, seasonal menus champion local producers and use only the very best ingredients.

Take a look at our menus below.



Before joining the team, our Executive Head Chef, Ian Howard worked as Head Chef at Borough Market’s renowned Roast Restaurant and as Executive Head Chef at Babylon Restaurant and The Roof Gardens High Street Kensington.

His cooking style is simple and fresh, enticing the full flavours out of ingredients and adding an interesting and unexpected twist. Ian is passionate about sourcing the very best ingredients: “One of my favourite daily tasks is talking with suppliers to find out what their best produce is on any given day and transforming that into something magnificent for our customers.”
