Majestic Mayfair As the Queen celebrates 60 years at the top, so does the renowned Guinea Grill in Mayfair.

In homage to the original offering, the four-course Jubilee dinner features a welcome glass of champagne, a starter of Scottish smoked salmon, a main of Aberdeenshire sirloin, and a dessert of strawberries and cream followed by coffee and petit fours. 30 Bruton Place, W1J 6NL TheGuinea.co.uk
