Eat like a raja
For something more exotic, dine like a raja at the Eriki restaurant, also on site at the Heathrow Crowne Plaza. The restaurant's beautiful oriental setting of hand-carved wooden furniture and beautiful tapestries and artworks compliments the authentic Indian cuisine. The menu includes familiar favourites like Tandoori Chicken, Korma and Biryani, as well as more-unusual dishes such as Chicken Xacuti, Handi Gosht and Lukhnowi Lamb Masala.
- Lunch: noon to 3pm
- Closed for lunch on Saturdays
- Dinner: 6pm to 11pm
Main courses cost around £12 to £20, with 3-course set menus available for groups of 6 or more, including a vegetarian menu, from £24 per person. Eriki is open for lunch from noon to 3pm every day except Saturday, when it is closed, and dinner from 6pm to 11pm every day.
Named after George Orwell, who studied at the nearby Eton College, the hotel's main restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is modern and minimalist, like the rest of the hotel, but with a warm, candle-lit atmosphere in the evening.
The breakfast service is almost a banquet, with a generous spread of cooked and continental favourites including bacon, sausages and eggs cooked as you like them, along with more-unusual items like waffles and porridge. The continental options include fuit, yoghurt, cereals and pastries. Tuck in while your waiter brings you tea or coffee.
- Breakfast: 6am to 10am, 10.30am on weekends
- Dinner: 6pm to 10.30pm
Orwells is open for breakfast from 6am to 10am, 10.30am at weekends.
Through the day and into the evening, Orwell's offers a majestic menu of modern British cuisine, including steaks, selections from the grill and seafood. We had an excellent starter of grilled mushrooms, a juicy roast chicken and a creamy butternut squash risotto, all washed down with a well-kept red wine from the comprehensive wine list.
Main courses are priced around £15 to £20, but kids eat free from the Grow Healthy children's menu. Dinner service runs from 6pm to 10.30pm, 10pm on Sundays.
If you're not quite in the mood for a royal feast, lighter options can be found at Dr ODriscoll's pub and Orwells Bar.
ODriscoll's serves a range of pub grub, including pies, ribs, fish and chips and bloomers from 5pm to 11pm. Orwells serves a bar menu 24 hours a day, including brunch baps, stone-baked pizzas, gourmet burgers and hot deli sandwiches.
If you'd rather eat in your royal chambers, room service is available 24 hours a day.
