The best places to entertain clients in West London

Looking for somewhere to seal the deal at your next big client meeting?
Look no further. We’ve got you covered with this list of our favourite venues for entertaining clients in west London.

A business lunch in Notting Hill

West London based businesses will no doubt be familiar with Notting Hill’s fine-dining institution The Ledbury. With two Michelin stars under its belt, it is simply the ultimate destination if anything less than sheer excellence will do for your clients. Push the boat out with one of their opulent tasting menus and perfectly matched wine pairings. Of course, the pleasure of dining here does come with a hefty price tag. But needs must when you’re going for the big sell.

Entertaining clients in Hammersmith

Just a short cab ride away from Hana’s flexible workplace location at 245 Hammersmith is a lunch spot in what has to be one of the most enviable locations west London has to offer. Situated right on the river, The River Café celebrates the spectacular food and wine of Italy. Beautiful, seasonal dishes can be enjoyed in a leisurely fashion in their bright and relaxed dining room, or eaten al fresco in the leafy garden restaurant.

A client lunch in Chelsea

It’s no surprise that well-heeled Chelsea has no shortage of exceptional eateries that are perfect for wining and dining clients and Elystan Street is a prime example. A collaboration between high-flying chef Phil Howard and top restaurateur Rebecca Mascarenhas, Elystan Street is a Michelin-starred triumph of a restaurant that mixes a relaxed neighbourhood feel with classic, West London elegance. Kick off proceedings with one of their signature cocktails before tucking into a carefully curated menu of modern European dishes including baked cheese soufflé and saddle of lamb.

Treating clients in Kensington

If you’re looking to call in the big guns at your next big client meeting with an unforgettable dining experience courtesy of none other than Gordon Ramsay’s outrageously talented former protégé, then Core by Clare Smyth is the one for you. With more culinary accolades to her name than we’ve had hot dinners, Smyth has built a fine-dining destination that’s worthy of every one of its three Michelin stars. Go all out and treat your clients to either the classic or seasonal tasting menu, both of  which come with carefully selected wine pairings. Perfect for businesses based at Situu’s state-ofthe-art managed office space on Kensington High Street.

A working lunch in Richmond

Businesses based in one of London’s leafiest enclaves simply can’t go wrong with a trip to The Ivy Café in the heart of Richmond. The bright, art deco style dining room is perfect for a leisurely business lunch with clients while the all-day menu is packed full of hits like chicken Milanese, fish and chips and the classic prawn cocktail. If we were working at Workspace’s Evergreen Studios flexible office spaces, that’s exactly where we’d be headed.
