The Royal Mail Restaurant & Bar is a 60-seater establishment housed within the historical and culturally-rich Ascott Raffles Place and serves modern interpretations of Classic British Cuisine where Roasts and Prime Rib take centre stage. A vintage brass mail chute, which stands in its full glory by the lift lobby of the Ascott, is the inspiration for The Royal Mail concept which provides guests with a touch of Old World elegance from the days of letter-writing, Doris Day, Grace Chang and policemen in shorts.
