Many of the chefs and management teams at London’s hotel restaurants place great emphasis on locally-sourced products. And what could be more local than produce from the hotel’s very own garden?

If you want to eat at a hotel restaurant where they grow their own, you have several choices, including luxury brands and budget boutiques.

Ham Yard

Ham Yard’s vegetable garden can be found on their rooftop terrace, where there’s also a lounge area for guests. They have olive, apple and pear trees surrounding their garden, which blooms with seasonal flowers.

Picket fencing and railway sleepers make up the raised bends that contain their salad, vegetable and herb gardens. The produce that results from the garden goes into the daily specials at the Ham Yard bar and restaurant. In the past, they have even hosted a workshop from the How To Academy about how to grow vegetables in a London garden.

The Boundary

Shoreditch’s The Boundary also makes their roof home to a vegetable garden. They have two olive trees over 100 years old and a canopy of grapevines, so there’s something of a Mediterranean theme.

The kitchen garden and wild herbs supply the Rooftop Bar and Grill and Boundary Restaurant. You could follow the produce from the garden to your hor d’oeuvres and then to a three-course meal downstairs.

Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Street

This Radisson Blu hotel also has a rooftop garden, which they have used to grow herbs and vegetables. Their harvest has been used in the staff canteen, as well as in other nearby locations.

Their garden began in 2013 as part of a project from InMidTown, who perform urban conservation efforts with over 500 London businesses. Their rooftop gardens produce harvests distributed to a number of local retailers.

If you want your food to be as fresh as it can be, check out one of these hotels who can trace their produce from plant to plate. You could even sit and look at the garden it came from as you eat your meal.
