“Hackney foodie hotspot for fish-focused tasting menu.” - AA Inspector
LONDON E8, LONDON POSTAL DISTRICTS
This first solo venture from Andy Beynon – a former Jason Atherton’s Social Company development chef, who has also worked for top chefs like Phil Howard, Claude Bosi and Michael Wignall - has certainly been making waves. The street-level dining room comes with hip industrial good looks, featuring 18-seats set around the open kitchen’s curved counter, serving a sustainable fish-focused ‘surprise’ tasting menu delivered and described by the chefs themselves. Innovative, finessed, intricate, easy-on-the-eye small creations burst with balanced flavour and surprise; witness chalk stream trout wrapped in nori, topped by an oyster leaf and finished with a silky courgette purée and samphire and basil oil, which can be mopped up with an accompanying warm almond brioche.

About the area
The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.
London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
