Where To Celebrate Thanksgiving In London


Hand-crafted, luxury experiences curated by our team—speak to our concierge to learn more

By Lucy Cocoran on 10th November 2023

Come November 23rd, the smell of roast turkey and pumpkin pie permeates the air for the American holiday rooted in tradition.

Thanksgiving dates back over 400 years ago, originating in 1621 when the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth to celebrate a successful autumn harvest. A monumental feast was enjoyed, also known as the first dinner. By 1863, president Abraham Lincoln declared this event a national holiday, which was henceforth known as Thanksgiving.

While Thanksgiving may historically be an American holiday, it has since garnered international favour for its overarching message of gratitude and blessing for the upcoming harvest season. And, while we don’t resonate directly with the story, the UK still enjoys celebrating it as an opportunity to get together with friends and family while enjoying a delicious meal.

There is no shortage of restaurants offering a bespoke Thanksgiving dinner for Brits and visitors from across the pond alike. With menus ranging from traditional (read roast turkey and pecan pie) to more contemporary takes, including pumpkin risotto and braised halibut.

Here, The Sybarite’s curated list of the most decadent Thanksgiving meals to enjoy across London come the 23rd of November.
