There is nowhere quite like one of our House Kitchens. But for days when you might be dining away from your local club, or for those who are yet to become members, there are plenty of Soho House spots to try. From Northern Italian restaurant Cecconi’s to traditional afternoon tea at Dean Street Townhouse and the rustic Farmshop at Bicester Village, each has a unique spirit and take on gastronomy – but all are a testament to our appreciation for food and drink.
As a benefit, Soho Friends and Soho House members can enjoy 20% off all of our restaurants from 4pm on Sundays until close on Wednesdays (for up to four people). Here are all the places to try in the UK.
Located in London’s Soho, Kettner’s dining room interiors offer classic glamour combined with heritage burnished mirrors and floral plasterwork. But the menu is punchy and fresh: since summer 2022, cult east London eatery The Clarence Tavern has held a residency.
As one the founders Harry Kaufman told us, ‘First and foremost, it’s all about the ingredients. We go direct to the producers for pretty much everything we buy. We will have a broad selection of dishes on the menu: shoulder of lamb, chicken pies, through to roast turbot with bearnaise sauce.’ The menu focuses on seasonal British food with a Mediterranean accent, accompanied by an extensive wine list focusing on natural wines.
Dish to try: Roast Hake, wild mushrooms, lentils and salsa verde.
Perfect for the lovers of classic Parisian cafes and outdoor dining, the restaurant is located on the site of the historic Foubert’s Hotel on Chiswick High Road. Plush and airy, High Road Brasserie has an atmosphere of a neighbourhood restaurant, where you could drop in pretty much any time. Open from morning until late at night, it serves breakfast, brunch and an all-day menu. With Art Deco details, a vintage bar and a spacious terrace, the Brasserie is the ideal setting for intimate dinners or large celebrations, as well as morning coffees and late-night cocktails.
Dish to try: Chalk Stream Trout, potato rosti, beurre blanc.

Located in a historic Georgian townhouse in the heart of London’s Soho, Dean Street Townhouse is grand yet irresistibly cosy. The restaurant serves an all-day menu with a fresh take on British classics, Sunday brunch and cocktails. It’s also a perfect spot for a traditional afternoon tea with mini cakes, scones, sandwiches and a glass of Champagne.
Dish to try: Roast Guinea Fowl breast, Jerusalem artichoke, jus.
Farmshop pays respect to the surrounding Oxfordshire countryside, just as the name suggests: with polished cobblestone floors, traditional barn doors, and exposed beams. Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, the menu focuses on rustic British food, from old-fashioned classics to hearty farmhouse fare. With two floors, outdoor seating and two private dining spaces, it’s a great combo of comforting and lovable, but with a special culinary twist. Also ideal for when you’re nostalgic for a visit to Soho Farmhouse.
Dish to try: Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich.

Enzo Cecconi opened his first Cecconi’s in London’s Mayfair in 1978, with the restaurant becoming part of the Soho House Group in 2005. Since then, a whole host of classic Italian dishes – Spaghetti Lobster, Cacio e Pepe, Sicilian Prawns and Wood-Fired Pizza – have become much-ordered favourites among Soho House members and guests in West Hollywood, Miami, Istanbul, Berlin, Barcelona, New York, and Mumbai. In the UK, there are four – each with its own special character.
The original Cecconi’s restaurant located on Burlington Gardens in Mayfair is a go-to for an elegant dinner or an all-day celebration. The home of a truly modern take on Venetian classics, it’s indulgent in the most joyful way. Don’t even contemplate leaving before you’ve had enough truffle and sampled the iconic Spaghetti Lobster.
Dish to try: Spaghetti Lobster.
