Celebrating English Wine Week with The Doyle Collection London Hotels.
We are delighted to announce our new partnership with The Doyle Collection who are now serving our Sussex Sparkling wines as the English house pour across their iconic London venues in the The Marylebone Hotel, The Kensington Hotel and The Bloomsbury Hotel.
The launch of the partnership coincides with English Wine Week so we’ll be collaborating on a host of food and wine experiences for guests to enjoy between 19th – 27th June. Read on to find out what’s going on in the city.
The Coral Room
The Bloomsbury Hotel is a beautifully-restored 1930s neo-Georgian building, located in the heart of London’s literary neighbourhood. The Bloomsbury is home to the opulent Coral Room restaurant and bar and the beautiful Dalloway Terrace.
The Coral Room was designed in collaboration with interior designer, Martin Brudnizki and features five bespoke Murano glass chandeliers, a stunning marble bar and various art deco designs to evoke the glamour of the 1920s. The Coral Room is well-known for offering one of the most extensive English Wine lists in the UK, carefully curated by Master of Wine, Anne McHale.
To celebrate English Wine Week, The Coral Room will be serving a special wine flight, offering guests a portfolio tasting of our Classic Cuvée, Rosé and Blanc de Blancs. Our sparkling wines are really food-friendly so we’ve also created an exclusive package for the week which includes a selection of four bar plates with a bottle of Rathfinny.
The Dalloway Terrace
Our partnership means guests can now enjoy an exquisite afternoon tea with a glass of Rathfinny Classic Cuvée in the Dalloway Terrace and Coral Room. Highlights include Jasmine and white chocolate parfait, Tahitian vanilla scones and a selection of finger sandwiches.
The Dalloway Terrace is also open for lunch service and evening meals. If you’re visiting this summer, we suggest pairing their Jersey rock oysters or Dorset Crab with our Blanc de Blancs which is the perfect accompaniment to seafood dishes.
If you only try one new thing this summer, let it be a Sussex Sgroppino! This Italian cocktail mixes our sparkling wine with vodka and a seasonal sorbet flavour that changes each month to reflect the best available English fruits. Enjoy this cocktail at The 108 Bar in The Marylebone Hotel.
The menu at the 108 Brasserie is inspired by a variety of world cuisines, using the freshest ingredients the season has to offer. Dine inside the traditional brasserie, or al fresco in the heart of Marylebone village, watching the world go by.

The Cocktail Bar
The Marylebone Hotel is also home to a New York-style Cocktail Bar. The interiors are inspired by the seasons and the design responds to the natural light in each space. From the fresh summer terrace, allowing that indoor and outdoor feel all year round, to the winter lounge, the cosiest of the spaces enhanced by rich mohair and centred around the beautiful fireplace. Here you can enjoy our Rosé and Classic Cuvée with light meals and bar bites.
Iced Garden Crudites & 2016 Classic Cuvée

During English Wine Week, enjoy a three-course Sussex Sparkling Lunch at the Kensington Hotel with a glass of Rathfinny. If you would rather dine alfresco, pick up a picnic hamper with a bottle of Rathfinny to enjoy in nearby Hyde Park.
