Good Godfreys


Good Godfrey’s proudly takes its name from the former leader of the Waldorf House band, the handsome and talented Howard Godfrey. Howard Godfrey and the Waldorfians enjoyed huge success in the early 1920’s as serious players on the London Social scene, boasting hit records and popular acclaim; the Best Show in Town. We are proud of our opulent past and it has inspired us throughout the creation of the new bar.

Good Godfrey's serves breakfast and lunch during the day and as the evening approaches bold cocktail concoctions will be available with a variety of food plates to complement them.

Our signature cocktails include The Astor Hip Flask named after William Waldorf Astor, the owner of the Waldorf Astoria in NY and an investor in the Waldorf in London and The Refined Madam, inspired by the soubriquet of ‘Madam Geneva’ for the badly made gin available during the gin craze of Georgian London.

Join us for a Cocktail Master Class and learn the art of making your favourite cocktails with expert advice and techniques from our Mixologist. This followed by a two course meal in the restaurant. You can join with a group of friends or work colleagues or even alone. It’s the perfect birthday bash or a reason to celebrate a special occasion.

We look forward to welcoming you to Good Godfrey's Bar and Lounge.
