Michelin Star Restaurant Seven Park Place by William Drabble was launched at St James’s Hotel & Club in Mayfair, London in September 2009. Drabble was awarded one Michelin star only one year after opening Seven Park Place as well as four AA Rosettes. In Seven Park Place William Drabble has created his own inimitable style menu, influenced by classic French cuisine, using the best British ingredients and taking inspiration from the seasons. Of course, like any great chef, William has his signature dishes, poached native lobster tail with cauliflower purée and lobster butter sauce springs to mind, but his continuing love of good food ensures that each dish he creates is as exquisite as the next. To reflect the style of his menu, William was heavily involved with the design and décor of Seven Park Place, an elegant and intimate space, with only 26 covers and nine tables. The restaurant uses rich colours and natural fabrics in bright, jewel inspired colours, to produce a stunning backdrop for the perfect dining experience.

Our food philosophy

Locally sourced ingredients are a feature of William’s food. Having grown up surrounded by farms William believes it is important to support British farmers and food suppliers. Each dish starts on a farm or in the sea, it then takes those farmers and fishermen, to get up early in the dark (mostly rainy) mornings to harvest that produce, which is then prepared, carefully packaged, taken on a journey and delivered to the restaurant.

The ingredients are then painstakingly prepared, cooked and presented by a trained team of professionals both in the kitchen and the restaurant. That is how a dish gets to you. There is a lot of time, care, resources and effort involved.

William likes to keep simplicity in his dishes; he believes that if you use too many ingredients at the same time the flavours become confused. This is why he uses the best quality ingredients and lets them speak for themselves.

Local suppliers include Cornvale Foods for game and Lune Valley Lamb; Keltic Sea Fare for scallops and langoustine; Mrs Tee for wild mushrooms; Channel Fisheries for Fish.

Zagat 2014 -"Polished, friendly staff deliver Chef William Drabble's complex, fantastic British-New French fare (served as two- or three-course set menus) to spacious booths at this elegant, stylish St James's Venue; foodies call it a fine-dining experience that's probably still a little below the radar - so take their advice: enjoy it before it becomes trendy."

The Sunday Times Britain's Top 100 restaurants, November 2013 -

Ranked 35 in London and 72 in Britain

Toptable Diners’ Choice Award winner for the Top 100 Best Restaurants in the UK, December 2013 - “These restaurants are consistently getting it right on every level, from first-rate ambience and service to wine lists and dishes that rarely fail to impress.”

The Good Food Guide 2013 - "...The food placed in front of you can be wonderful. William Drabble is now well established in his own gaff in the five-star setting of the St. James's Hotel. He marries classical French technique with some classic British ideas; the result is highly fastidious cooking that makes its mark through painstaking detail, seen in dishes such as baked fillet of red mullet with agrlic, parsley and mullet liver sauce, or an exquisite combination of seared foie gras with caramelised pears and ginger syroup. Readers praise meltingly tender saddle of Lune Valley lamb, the equally gentle roasted veal sweetbreads taht come with a casserole of ceps, onions and bacon, and a very good venison of burnt lemon cream. Drinkers can look forward to top-drawer quaffing from a list that shimmers with class."
