Hunter 486: Another Hidden Gem for London’s Foodies!

Aside from finding new places to eat in London, I love rediscovering old or forgotten places. Hunter 486, the discreet & glamorous restaurant at The Arch London is one of the latter places because I had clearly forgotten how great it is!

With a fantastic central London location within The Arch London, a luxurious boutique hotel on the edge of Marylebone, Hunter 486 offers both hotel guests and visitors alike heavenly food and service in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant takes its name from the 1950’s district dialling code for Marylebone and is perfect for social occasions and even informal work meetings.


I stopped by recently on a Saturday for a delicious three-course lunch which included:

Starter: Pan fried scallops with chilli jam & mango salsa (£12.50)
Main: Roast whole seabass with orange & Rosemary butter. (£17)
Sides: Purple sprouting broccoli (£4); Hand cut chips (£4)
Dessert: Vanilla ice cream (£6)


IMG_3854The scallops were really fresh & delicate – I loved the spicy sauce and beautiful presentation. The seabass was simple, light & tasty; the orange gave the fish a wonderful sweetness, which went perfectly with the broccoli. The chips were also very yummy – thick cut, crispy on the edges and soft & fluffy in the middle. The dessert menu looked really good, full of all of the British classics such as fruit crumble and apple pie, but I was feeling rather full after my big lunch so settled for one of my favourites, homemade vanilla ice-cream, which did not disappoint!


Also worth mentioning is the skilful bar team at Hunter 486, I ordered a mix of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks, they were all really impressive, made with close attention to detail and presentation – they included:


Virgin Vera (£6.50): Fresh lime & raspberries muddled, aloe vera water, guava juice

Chuck Berry (£6.50): Fresh blueberries, raspberries and strawberries muddled, cranberry juice, vanilla syrup


Grace Kelly Martini (£12): Fresh blackberries muddled, Plymouth Sloe gin, Creme de cassis, lychee liqueur, lime juice.

I must admit, I could have spent the whole afternoon sipping on the Grace Kelly martini – it is light and fruity – the perfect cocktail for a Saturday afternoon!

The service at the restaurant was polite, warm and attentive. I will definitely return, especially for some more cocktails! I’m also keen to try one of the Hunter 486 pizzas as the kitchen has a fabulous stone bedded oven!
