Where To Celebrate Thanksgiving In London

Discover the best festive feasts at London restaurants to help you celebrate Thanksgiving.

The Colony Grill Room

The restaurant, housed in the stately art deco Beaumont hotel, serves up transatlantic grill room classics and old-world glamour in a stylish 1920s NYC-style grill room. The kitchens are overseen by Ben Boeynaems (previously of Petrus and The Goring) - who's celebrating Thanksgiving in American style with a menu of transatlantic-inspired dishes. This year they're serving a four-course menu at £85 per person, alongside the à la carte menu. Expect dishes such as roast scallop & sweetcorn chowder, pumpkin risotto and then, of course, traditional Thanksgiving turkey followed by pecan pie.


The sumptuous restaurant on the ground floor of the 45 Park Lane Hotel is an upscale steakhouse by none other than Wolfgang Puck. The Thanksgiving menu has been designed by Executive Chef Elliott Grover with input from famed chef and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck - and is available at lunch and dinner on Thursday, 23 November. Menu highlights include Dorset & crab lobster ‘Louis’ cocktail with avocado, horseradish panna cotta and Norfolk bronze turkey with cornbread stuffing, cranberry compote and natural gravy. 

The Pem

Celebrate Thanksgiving at The Pem - the fine dining restaurant set within the Conrad London St James, where Chef Sally Abé (formerly of The Harwood Arms) has created a one-off, celebratory menu, using the best of British ingredients - and giving it their own signature twist. Maple roast bronze turkey is the star of the show, served with all the trimmings including duck fat hasselback potatoes, herb stuffing, creamed green beans and wild mushrooms. The dessert of pumpkin pie ice cream is served with hazelnuts and shortbread. The Thanksgiving celebration menu (priced at £95 per person) is available for lunch and dinner on the 23rd November.

The Cadogan Arms

The much-loved Chelsea institution has been restored to its former glory with James Knappett of two-Michelin-star Kitchen Table overseeing the food menu as Culinary Director, with Alex Harper (previously of The Harwood Arms and The Ledbury) as Executive Chef. The Cadogan Arms is hosting a special Thanksgiving Dinner on November 23rd featuring classic American dishes. The menu kicks off with prawn cocktail followed by roast turkey served with roast potatoes, truffle honey glazed parsnips and russels sprouts with chestnuts. With pecan pie for dessert. The three course dinner is priced at £80.

There's also live jazz throughout the day. The menu is priced at £75 per person and available for dinner on November 22th and 23rd. 

English chef Jacob Kenedy might have made his name cooking Italian food at Bocca di Lupo but his grandmother was born in Louisiana, the culinary theme at this Cajun and Creole-inspired pub by the canal in Islington. Expect bayou bites, Louisianan cocktails and live jazz and blues as well as a Thanksgiving menu of blackened turkey with sausage, red beans and rice, scallops served on sweet pumpkin and gingerbread, roast turkey po’boy stuffed with slices of turkey and homemade cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

You can still get the typical American steaks with an offering of pumpkin pie, apple and blueberry cobbler or Oreo cheesecake to finish. 

Joe Allen

Embracing its New York roots - the American Brasserie and theatreland institution is hosting a one-night-only Thanksgiving celebration. The menu (priced at £65) includes  spiced pumpkin soup, followed by roast Norfolk bronze turkey with all the trimmings.
