The Only Running Footman

About The Only Running Footman

The newly brushed-up and re-launched Only Running Footman in Mayfair definitely hasn't lost any of its British roots in the process. This much-loved pub, restaurant and private event space houses elegant, yet unpretentious surroundings, complete with a truly British menu featuring home-grown produce direct from the farmers. Guests can slide up to the long mahogany bar or comfy booth seating and enjoy traditional Blighty breakfasts or old-style pub menu favourites later on. The restaurant is a bit plusher, serving stylish items like south coast fish soup with saffron and rouille and a Running Footman traditional mixed grill against a backdrop of gold velvet chairs and carpeting. For those who feel that the wine bar set have lost sight of what made Britain great, The Only Running Footman is definitely for you.
