Located beneath London's largest Living Wall, recently replanted with more than 6,000 herbaceous plants to breathe life into our surroundings, bbar is a vibrant cocktail bar and restaurant in the heart of Victoria.
Our new menu plays homage to our heritage, with dishes that beautifully reflect the flavours of South Africa with a playful twist, from Boerewors Eggs Benedict with chilli chutney biltong to The Gatsby Sub, a Western Cape pulled BBQ short rib of beef.
Alongside this exceptional new menu, we have live mix sessions and DJ sets throughout the week, as well as contemporary signature cocktails created by our resident mixologists.
I have been General Manager at The Egerton House Hotel since March 2012 having joined Red Carnation Hotels in 2005. With my team, I enjoy taking a personal care of our guests from the first introduction to every stage of your guest experience, through reservations, a warm welcome on arrival, looking after you while you are at your “new home away from home” and saying goodbye to our new found friends. I do hope that I will have the pleasure of personally welcoming you to The Egerton House Hotel.
In my role as the Concierge Manager of the award-winning Egerton House Hotel, my responsibility is to ensure that each of our guests' needs and requirements are met and exceeded. I take great pride and pleasure in finding the most suitable choices of restaurants or bars; recommending the hottest new shows, museum exhibitions or day-trips; planning personalised tours; or helping to solve health or travel issues. If I can help with anything before your stay, please do contact me directly.
My entry into the hospitality industry was as a country house butler in the county of Worcestershire. I began working at Red Carnation Hotels in 2007, and in nearly fourteen years, I have done four very different roles. In my current role as Executive Assistant to Michelle, I work very closely with her on our global sustainability initiatives and the day-to-day running of the hotel. What I love most is having a multi-faceted role within a passionate team who I regard as friends.
I am delighted to lead a wonderful team in the UK, taking care of our guests' reservations. Let us know whether you will be celebrating your honeymoon, birthday, or wedding. It would be our pleasure to oversee your bedroom allocation and put in a special request prior to your arrival. We can also organise any additional extras you may like such as chocolates, champagne and strawberries, which would be waiting for you upon arrival. We will ensure that your stay will be one you fondly remember.
My hospitality journey began in 2017 when I started at The Egerton as a Management Programme participant in food and beverage. I enjoyed the role but what I loved most was meeting new people and creating memorable experiences. In my current role, I am involved in the smooth running of the hotel’s facilities from a front office and food and beverage aspect, but that sentiment of creating those memorable experiences remains at the heart of what I do.
I discovered my passion for hospitality in 2012 whilst working at a French Bistro in Staffordshire. In 2019 I was proud to join Red Carnation on the prestigious Management Programme where I developed skills within the food and beverage and front office departments at The Egerton House Hotel. My current role affords me a balance of all that I enjoy most about hospitality whilst working amongst a passionate and dedicated team.
