Raffles London at The Old War Office (OWO) has opened its doors, launching multiple new food and beverage venues. 

Chef Mauro Colagreco has partnered with the hotel to lead three dining experiences within its historic halls. These three concepts will showcase the UK’s best seasonal produce, sourced from local farms, fields and shores across the country.  

At the chef’s signature restaurant, Mauro Colagreco at Raffles London at The OWO, dishes will highlight the rich diversity of native British vegetables, delivered through a series of tasting menus. Next door, Mauro’s Table is an intimate space centred around a dining table able to host up to 23 guests. Backed by a dramatic show kitchen, Head Chef Leonel Aguirre will take diners on a sensory journey through English gardens.

Elsewhere, Mauro’s relaxed dining restaurant, Saison, will put a contemporary spin on the traditional hotel restaurant. With seasonal Mediterranean cuisine served up throughout the day, the elegant space occupies a former historic library of the Old War Office and – true to its name – Saison will reflect Chef Colagreco’s commitment to seasonal cuisine.

Raffles London at The OWO is also home to two atmospheric bars. The Guards Bar and Lounge honours The OWO’s long association with the Household Cavalry, offering up a menu of 16 drinks, with a focus on British ingredients intertwined with flavours from the East.

Further F&B options at the hotel include The Drawing Room, a relaxed all-day lounge overlooking Horse Guards, and Pillar Kitchen, a well-being-focused food outlet.
