Food, Violet Hour

Food at The Violet Hour

Join us for a relaxed brunch or lunch, an afternoon chocolate brownie with coffee, or uncomplicated evening eating with friends.

As well as our menu below, The Violet Hour has a regular pop-up restaurant called Ten - it's five courses of fine dining with a ‘flight’ of three matched cocktails. Ten always books up fast so keep an eye on The Violet Hour website for announcements.
