The Salutation Faint Room

The Faint Room

Original wood panelling, an ornately stuccoed ceiling and a glowering fire; Gaspard Farrer’s personal library was always destined to become a place where one would slip into a deep chair with a drop of something fine and let the hours roll on of their own accord. The Faint Room is not just for lovers of the malt, but to anyone content to see time move slowly. A late morning with the papers, afternoons with coffee and a book, the room is a sanctuary at any time.

Of course, for those so inclined, there is always something spectacular to be had in a glass. A fine collection of whiskeys, as thoughtfully assembled as any wine list, is matched by the best we can find of rums, gins, brandies.

There will never be great architects or great architecture without great patrons. Edwin Lutyens

Let no one think that real gardening is a bucolic and meditative occupation. It is an insatiable passion, like everything else to which a man gives his heart. Karel Čapek
