If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham

I agree with other comments suggesting gluten free options....pretty unlikely but management might surprise on this. It’s a nice hotel and pub/restaurant in a great location. Gluten free options are certainly close by.
