Inside Cedar & Spruce

This year’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland will see brilliant chef Ani Arora serve up some bistro-inspired festive fare at Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen. Open for lunch, dinner and any time inbetween from 29th November, this irresistible pop-up will be available to book – which is highly recommended – but will also take walk-ins. Set across a trio of impressive tepees, complete with rustic décor, cosy fire pits and large communal tables, Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen’s warm and welcoming atmosphere will entice the crowds to take a break from the thrilling rides, ice skating, giant wheel and charming Christmas markets that together have seen Hyde Park Winter Wonderland become a landmark event for Londoners and visitors alike. Ani’s brand Hankies, with its shared plates inspired by Indian street food, continues to delight at its Shaftesbury Avenue and Marble Arch restaurants. For the Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen concept, he has taken festive British favourites and given them a global twist. Created using seasonal, responsibly sourced ingredients, dishes comprise starters such as cranberry & brie wonton with chilli cranberry jam as well as mains including turkey roulade with bacon & spinach stuffing & glazed root vegetables and steak pie, mash & classic mushroom gravy. Finish with, what else but, a Christmas pudding slice with brandy sauce, or perhaps some raspberry & white chocolate cheesecake for the less traditional.

All dishes can be enjoyed à la carte or as a set offering with two courses priced at £23.50 per head or three courses at £27.50. The restaurant is also the ideal destination for families before and after pre-bookable attractions, such as the Magical Ice Kingdom’s “A Christmas Carol” and spectacular shows, including Paddington on Ice, with a kid’s menu available for just £8.50. For those with smaller appetites – or who just want to enjoy the bar area – Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen also offers a bar snacks menu, with dazzling small plates presenting the perfect accompaniment to the venue’s impressive collection of mulled wine and cider, craft beers, spirits, champagnes and prosecco. Choose from treats such as creamy cheese jalapeños, crispy prawns with wasabi drizzle & tomato salsa or venison & fig samosa served with apple chutney. Hyde Park Winter Wonderland opens its doors on 21st November until 5th January. People attending the park can enjoy a wide range of fun activities, as well as the Cedar & Spruce Bar + Kitchen which will run from 21st November as a bar, welcoming guests in with a toasty tipple or two, with food service commencing from 29th November.
