Kettner’s Townhouse



Established in 1867 by August Kettner, rumoured to have been chef to Napoleon III, Kettner’s was one of the first restaurants in London to serve French food. Popular with historical figures and creatives throughout its 151-year history, legend has it that King Edward VII courted his mistress, actress Lillie Langtry, in its cabinets particuliers (private dining rooms). Remaining open through both World Wars, Kettner’s entertained visitors including Sir Winston Churchill, Agatha Christie, Oscar Wilde, Bing Crosby and Margaret Thatcher.
