Lipton, the tea people, once owned the building and the pared-down, ersatz industrial look of the restaurant is bang on trend. For added animation, help is at hand from the open kitchen, while warmth and personality come courtesy of the delightful service team, who share the passion of the kitchen, offer great advice and really know their menu.
The dishes may appear to be as unadorned as the room but don’t be fooled – they are technically accomplished, thoughtfully composed and deliver far more depth and sophistication than their terse menu descriptions suggest. The superb seasonal British ingredients provide flavours that are clean and unadulterated and a joy to experience. Dinner sees a set menu but at lunch you can choose an array of dishes at prices that are more than fair.
Work in progress.
