Where to spend Thanksgiving in London

Looking for your fix of pecan pie this Thanksgiving? While the tradition may originate from the good ole’ US of A,why not join in the fun with our round-up of the best places to enjoy Thanksgiving across the capital.


While we cannot confirm or deny a personal appearance by Biden himself, we can, however, state that Potus, on Albert Embankment, will be going full out this Thanksgiving, serving up modern American fare with a side order of jazz. Nice.

Oblix at The Shard

If you like your turkey to come with a view, where better than to spend this Thursday at London’s tallest building, The Shard. Oblix will be serving traditional fare, with a rotisserie turkey taking centre stage, accompanied, naturally, with baked sweet potatoes and butternut squash with maple syrup and sage.

We say: come for the panoramic views, stay for the bourbon ice cream.


Thanksgiving comes via Italy and Manhattan this year at London’s Sette. They’ll be serving delights such as chestnut and porcini soup, roasted bronze turkey with guanciale and the beautifully-named cinnamon sugar bombolino to finish. Perfetto!

Cut at 45 Park Lane

The West End’s Park Lane is home to Cut at 45 Park Lane, and boy, does it have a treat in store for you this Thanksgiving. Enjoy roasted squash soup with goats’ cheese and sage, roast turkey with all the trimmings, and that all-American favourite, pecan pie.

You’ll be spoilt for choice this Thanksgiving with Claridge’s offering not one but two ways to enjoy your turkey.

Relax in the Foyer and Reading Room to the sounds of jazz as you enjoy wood roast Cambridge bronze turkey and warm pecan pie, or if you want to take things up a luxe notch, visit Davies and Brook at Claridge’s where foie gras and lobster tail take centre stage.

Where else to spend Thanksgiving than at Darby’s, situated in the backdrop of the US Embassy at Nine Elms. We’ve got our eyes on the truffled mac and cheese, herb and lemon butter roasted turkey, and who can forget Nancy’s pecan pie. Yee-haw.


A West End institution, Christopher’s takes Thanksgiving and dresses it in style. Voted ‘Best American Restaurant in London’, the Covent Garden restaurant will be serving seared seabass, purple cauliflower, roasted garlic mash, lemon dressing, if you’ve had your fill of turkey.

A Martini before dinner in the Martini Bar, James Bond-style, is an absolute prerequisite.

Galvin Bar & Grill

Thanksgiving comes with British flair, courtesy of Head Chef Adam Gray at Galvin Bar & Grill. Proceedings start with Delica pumpkin soup served with grilled ceps, Spenwood cheese and cornbread, followed by a rustic Mywood Farm free-range roasted turkey with sweet potato gratin, maple glazed bacon and cranberries. Pecan pie finishes things off nicely.

From our family to yours, we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving if you’re celebrating – enjoy!
