Located beneath London's largest Living Wall, recently replanted with more than 6,000 herbaceous plants to breathe life into our surroundings, bbar is a vibrant cocktail bar and restaurant in the heart of Victoria.
Our new menu plays homage to our heritage, with dishes that beautifully reflect the flavours of South Africa with a playful twist, from Boerewors Eggs Benedict with chilli chutney biltong to The Gatsby Sub, a Western Cape pulled BBQ short rib of beef.
Alongside this exceptional new menu, we have live mix sessions and DJ sets throughout the week, as well as contemporary signature cocktails created by our resident mixologists.
11 measurable goals
Our strategy was developed to address these goals, anchored to the United Nations’ Global Goals, addressing sustainability and conservation by tackling climate change, cultural preservation by targeting over-tourism, and protection through animal welfare.Read more
We have been diligent in measuring our carbon footprint. The hotel has installed LED lighting, electric vehicle charging points, and we are looking at harvesting rainfall and investing in solar services.
We have 17 local food suppliers and 10 organic food suppliers, as well as our very own polytunnels. Executive Chef Jonathan Keane encourages his team members to help forage on the estate for ingredients.
Our sister hotel Ashford Castle hosts MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences, which directly advance the United Nations Global Goals.
Our employees regularly volunteer for causes for a number of our charitable partnerships. In April 2021, we raised €4,227 for Mayo Roscommon Hospice through an array of fundraising initiatives.
All our animal and wildlife experiences comply with the TTC Animal Welfare Policy. We are also proud to produce honey as well as providing animal boxes around the estate to support conservation.
We strive to #MakeTravelMatter
The community surrounding the Ashford Estate is an integral part of our history, with continuous fundraising to support local organisations, volunteer days and partnering with a charity of the year to support them. As we look to the future and our sustainability journey, we are working alongside our local community of Cong with the aim of becoming Ireland’s very first green destination.Discover The TreadRight Foundation
