Five Star Service from the Berkeley

Although shut to guests, the 5-star Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge is providing hot food and drinks to all NHS workers, police, firemen and paramedics via a drive-through station outside their front door.

Served from 11.30am each day, dishes include aromatic braised lamb, harissa roasted chicken, braised topside of beef and chicken and tomato curry.

Berkeley General Manager Knut Wylde said: ‘We are honoured to help support our much-valued Emergency Services at this very difficult time, and we are particularly proud of so many of our team who have volunteered to step up and help… as far as we are concerned we are all in this together.’

Through the Westminster Connects initiative, the hotel has also been preparing over 1,500 meals a week which are delivered by an army of volunteers to those in sheltered accommodation and low-income households.
