New to Westminster


A new hotel has just opened opposite St James Park tube station.  It’s called the Intercontinental Westminster, and is very expensive, which is not surprising, given its location.  It has a Blue Boar Smokehouse and Bar attached, featuring a restaurant that includes baby back ribs on its menu, and a rather pleasant bar that looks out onto Broadway.

The bar has a selection of good beers and does a small selection of food dishes which includes the house burger.  The beer shown is actually a porter called Black Isle, and is very good with a slightly sweet edge.  The rose wine is an acceptable Provence one, though I doubt it’s worth £8.50 for a 175mm glass.  The beer is better value.

  1. Is this evidence that the Westminster economy suffers neither recession nor austerity?

    Best regards
