Flora Indica is inspired by and pays homage to the intrepid Scottish botanists who travelled throughout India during the Victorian period. This exploration led to the discovery of thousands of species of exotic plants, previously unknown to Britain. As a result of these endeavours, the book which contains this epic catalogue of botanical species, entitled Flora Indica was published in London in 1855. The creative decor pays tribute via an eclectic mix of splendid Scottish heritage Harris tweed fabric, Victorian steampunk in zinc, copper and brass and warm rich teak wood with Victorian period scientific curiosities decorating walls and shelves. The stunningly atmosp-heric Flora Indica lounge can seat up to 70 and has it’s own bar. The ground floor space seating up to 30. Located on the historic and splendid Old Brompton Road, our stylish venue is perfect for private dining, corporate events, group bookings and birthday celebrations.
The menu has been specially created to feature modern and innovative takes on beloved Indian flavours and fine British ingredients. Our menu of sharing plates takes guests on a voyage of discovery through thoughtful spicing and beautiful local ingredients. The talented Flora Indica team will guide you through our curated botanical craft and premium gin collection housed in our elegant bar. The house Flora Indica Amber Ale is brewed locally at Portobello Brewery and our creative cocktails celebrate the flavours and botanics that inspire us.
