Dear customers of La Poule au Pot,

After more than fifty years of happily serving you, we have sadly had to close our doors following the Government’s announcement. While this is not a goodbye forever, it will be until we are permitted to reopen, hopefully in the not too distant future.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have always given us and also to thank our wonderful staff who have been amazing throughout these difficult times.

We wish you all safety, patience and happy days until we meet again.

Until then, love from our team.

La Poule au Pot has been a Belgravia institution for as long as anyone cares to remember. The alluring interior, with its intimate nooks and festoons of dried flowers and bric-à-brac has changed little since the 60s and offers an authentic re-creation of “paysan” France. It is no surprise that La Poule has been voted “best for romance” in the whole of London in Hardens guide for the nth year in succession.

Alongside the wonderfully atmospheric ambience, the menu is classic French too: excellent ingredients, generous portions and fine cooking, presented with exuberant panache. The wine list is honest, thoughtful and interesting.

In warmer months, the extensive outdoor seating area makes the restaurant one of the most desirable alfresco destinations in the capital.
