Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form here at The Milestone, recently highly commended at the Afternoon Tea Awards, 2016. Served in Cheneston's Restaurant, the Park Lounge or the Conservatory, it is a treat in more ways than one - a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches is accompanied by warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, as well as a selection of pastries including éclairs, turtles, cupcakes and macaroons.
It's hard to imagine a more romantic setting in which to celebrate your most special day. Opposite Kensington Palace and gardens, home to Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge, and recently married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle; romance is certainly in the air. Licensed for civil ceremonies, The Milestone provides the perfect venue for an intimitate celebration with traditional British style and unrivalled service. Our expert team of chefs, sommeliers, waiting staff and event organisers will put your mind at ease and prepare the setting for the happiest day of your life.
Deriving its name from an early spelling of Kensington, Cheneston's is our intimate and elegant restaurant, offering the finest British cuisine. As you step in from the bustling city streets of Kensington you will be struck by the fine traditional décor, rich mahogany furniture, warm wood panelling and the abidance of natural daylight pouring in from the Victorian leaded windows. Enter a world of calm sophistication and sumptuous luxury in our dining room, a room full of character, reflecting the distinctive period architecture of the building.
Our bright and airy Conservatory, with its chic juxtaposition of sheer black and white, gives you the al fresco ambience with natural light pouring through the glass. The Conservatory provides an enchanting space for up to 15 guests and is ideal for a champagne reception before the wedding breakfast.
For those special occasions, elegant private dinners, business lunches, working breakfasts or leisurely afternoon teas, the circular Oratory, with its ornate vaulted ceiling and wood panelling is ideal. Located next to the main restaurant, and once the private chapel of the original house in the 1600s, the Oratory provides an enchanting space for up to eight guests.
