Coal Shed brings in new ex-Hawksmoor chef

London’s Coal Shed restaurant has brought in former Hawksmoor executive chef Lewis Hannaford as it finally reopens post-lockdown.

Hannaford, who has more than 25 years’ experience in the industry, has been described as a “perfect fit” for the British grill restaurant at One Tower Bridge, London.

The chef has created a new menu at Coal Shed. Small plates include sea bream crudo with horseradish buttermilk, nori oil and kohlrabi, and large plates of Lake District lamb grilled rump and smoked beef short-rib for two.

The menu will also offer a Sunday roast, designed for two to share, featuring 500g aged sirloin, beef fat potatoes, Sunday trimmings, Yorkshire pudding, beef jus, and horseradish.

Dishes will again be prepared in the open kitchen so as to show off the cooking over fire.

The restaurant has also announced a new partnership with Lake District Farmers, who supply quality meat to some of Britain’s most esteemed locations. Gordon Ramsay is a fan.
