About Drones

Erstwhile patrons of the old Drones, much beloved by Sloanes and Hoorays for its proximity to The Square and its associations with Bertie Wooster, won’t recognise it in its new incarnation. Opened in November 2000 under the auspices of Marco Pierre White it has been given a complete facelift - new interior, new menu and new standard of cooking. Anyone expecting the admittedly good burgers and fat fries of its past are in for a surprise. As popular as ever with the locals, Drones now attracts its fair share of celebs, families and corporate entertainers through its now far more funky portals. What’s Cooking? Parfait of Foie gras, Magret of duck Marco Pierre, Asparagus with sauce ravigote; Roast loin of veal a la Forestiere with gratin Dauphinois and jus gras; Gratinee of cod a la Viennoise with sabayon of Champagne; Oeuf a la neige praline rose with crème Anglaise; Fresh fruit in Champagne jelly with passion fruit syrup.
