The room service menu at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star One Aldwych is a large 12-page affair that covers plenty of things you expect (continental breakfast, specialty coffee drinks) and probably a few you don’t (duck spring rolls!). The breakfast offerings are the same as you will find at the Indigo restaurant, with four set selections like the English or healthier High Fibre set plus the option to order dishes like eggs royale or pancakes a la carte. Light bites include an antipasto plate with charcuterie and heaps of olives, plus the aforementioned duck or veggie spring rolls, a classic Caesar salad and a soup of the day. Five different sandwiches can be made up with items like fillet steak or Norfolk ham, and the main dishes move into heavier fare like the cottage pie, Thai chicken or prawn curry, spaghetti Bolognese and the catch of the day. The all-important dessert menu touches on the essentials by including everything from a cheese plate and sliced fruit platter to a peanut butter and jam parfait with soused cherries and a chocolate brownie sundae.
