In my continuing quest to find perfect spots for herfing in London I can happily confirm that the Lanesborough Hotel is now highly recommended:-)

I met the F&B manager in Havana a few years back when Hunters and Frankau were kind enough to take us both to the Festival for a week and Ajaz and I got on famously.
Ajaz mentioned that I should stop by and checkout the new smoking area which I can confirm is quite delightful,with comfortable furniture,enormous canopy umbrellas and enough heaters to keep the cold out. The service was also very impressive.
The Lanesborogh has an excellent selection of Havana cigars and I even spotted some dark and oily Davidoff Dom Perignon in the humidor!
I took a few clients there last night and we paired up a Merlot from Chile with some Diplomaticos no.2…..heavenly combo 🙂
