Inn the Park - Peyton and Byrne

As the London sun is shining, I'm taking my flip flops down to Inn the Park, Peyton and Byrne's eco-friendly restaurant by day, and destination restaurant by night. It's my top place for wkend brunch because it feels so relaxing in this Austrian larch building in the heart of St James's Park. [The wood is untreated so it will weather over time].

I went with the girls on a humid Sunday and we 'self-served' ourselves lattes and Millionnaire's shortbreads and ate them on the grass topped roof terrace, with it's cute green metal patterned tables. The dining room is a more formal option, separated by the kitchen by chunky white marble booths and black leather banquettes. British design hero of the moment Tom Dixon designed the 60's inspired mirrored lights [pressumably to give the caff a 'destination restaurant' glamour for evenings]. This place with it's chairs made of tubular steel and leather pads shows that park grub has moved up in the world of London town.
