Step into our polished marble lobby and immediately notice the warm and personalised service that defines The Chesterfield.
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.
It is no longer a secret that climate change poses a serious threat to what makes Scotland so special: our landscapes, wildlife, and local community.
To fight against these record-breaking temperatures, rising sea levels, and loss of biodiversity, we're declaring a climate emergency as a founding signatory to the Glasgow Declaration. Our common goal as tourism businesses is to cut global carbon emissions to 55% over the next decade to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming.

We know the climate crisis demands urgent action. We recognise the need for both travellers and travel businesses to take action on climate change and to address our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and so we began our journey to understand and measure the carbon footprint of our property to do just that.
Going carbon neutral is one part of our larger five-point Climate Action Plan we have in place, which is focused on first and foremost reducing our emissions. In the interim, we view investing in carbon credits (which are offsets) as a way to take immediate action to address our unavoidable emissions while we transition towards a low carbon economy. These investments come with positive social impacts that keep local communities thriving by creating jobs, improving health outcomes and promoting local entrepreneurship.
Beginning in 2022, in partnership with a leading offset provider, South Pole, we will offset your stay by purchasing verified credits from a forest conservation offset project in Victoria, Australia.
This project protects Victoria’s Annya State Forest and restores the rich biodiversity that was once found in the forest, before it was illegally cleared two decades ago and planted with an invasive eucalyptus species, causing devastation to the area. By protecting the land against further clearing and re-vegetating it with native flora, this project enhances biodiversity and permanently protects habitat for vulnerable native species.
