Winter Garden Restaurant and Sky Pod Bar

Dionne and I were catching up and we wanted to visit a new restaurant. Bookatable my new best friend, lists top restaurants within your area or you have the option to search for a restaurant/look within a specific location for great offers. We opted for Winter Gardens located within The Landmark Hotel in Marylebone and cocktails at Sky Pod Bar in Sky Gardens.

Winter Gardens

Bookatable had a good deal. 3 courses and a Bellini for £40 per person. The venue was lovely with palm trees and simple white tablecloths. We were seated on a nice table in the corner. The restaurant was busy but it was peaceful and you were able to have a conversation without shouting.

We ordered the following:

Dionne

Warm Chocolate Fondant with Pistachio Ice Cream

The bill came up to £96 with service charge.

Overall the venue was beautiful, the staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was tasty but I was expecting more from the starter.

My rating for Winter Garden is 9/10.

Sky Pod

I booked a table for 22:30 and I can’t believe we survived until this time as I’m normally in bed by this time lol. When we entered the building there was a queue but when I gave my name to the receptionist she directed us to a different entrance. Before you reach the lift there is a security check, where your bags are scanned and you go through a metal detector. Once the check was complete we took the lift to the 35th floor and headed to the receptionist. I gave my name and we taken to our table.

 

The DJ was playing some good Old Skool R’n’B songs. The bar was packed and there was a nice atmosphere. Everyone was enjoying themselves on the dance floor. We had a nice table with a view of the shard. There was dim lighting with faux candles on each table.

We opted for Winter Berry Mojitos (£13 each). The cocktails looked amazing. They tasted like Ribena but had an after taste. My rating for the cocktail is 5/10.

I then went for a Mulled Wine Cocktail (£9) which reminded me of Christmas. It was delicious and warm. My rating for the cocktail is 7/10.

Mulled Wine

In total the bill came up to £43 which also included service charge and a soft drink.

We had a walk to have a look at the gardens. I will definitely visit in the Summer to see the gardens in the daylight.

Overall it was a great night. The DJ played great music, the atmosphere was lovely and the views were stunning. The only disappointment was the cocktails which is why I’m giving the Sky Pod 8/10.

If you want to visit a bar with stunning views and a great atmosphere this is the place to check out.

I hope you enjoyed. Please follow my blog to keep up to date with my latest posts. Until next time.
