In a former BBC building, the Borough Market restaurant's more casual sibling, over two floors, will open with Paul Shearing (Bread Street Kitchen, Odette's) at the stoves. No news yet on an opening date - it's been over a year since we first heard about the project.
Harden's survey result
“Nice views of Borough Market, if you get a window seat” (“watch out for the trains on the adjoining viaduct that appear to be coming towards you”) add to the considerable appeal of this “light and airy dining space” (which atmospherically incorporates a converted glazed portico, originally part of the Royal Opera House). Specialising in British cuisine – particularly roast meats – most reports say the food is “brilliant”, but there remains a sceptical view that it’s “less-than-good home cooking”. Top Menu Tip – breakfast and brunch have long been a very reliable experience here.
