Lee Westcott's Typing Room restaurant is a sophisticated space with dark-green walls and parquet flooring, where a menu of seasonal British cuisine is served. The tasting menu includes five snacks, starters and mains, with innovative dishes such as mackerel, passion fruit, burnt cucumber and dill; pigeon smoked in pine, salt-baked celeriac, lovage and hazelnut; and green tea, yoghurt and sesame. The Corner Room bistro serves Spanish-inspired brasserie-style food; there's no need to book after 7pm, or to sample its flavourful two- and three-course lunchtime menus.
The darkly lit Peg and Patriot bar is perfect for pre-dinner cocktails, picked from a seasonal selection. The menu plays fast and loose with flavours, offering a straight-up Dark and Stormy for less-adventurous imbibers alongside some way-outside-the-box cocktails such as the Marmite Martini (Marmite, vodka and olive), Pho Money Pho Problems (pho spirit, pak choi and lime-leaf syrup and lime) and Groner Sazerac (Beigel Bake salt-beef bagel, cognac, rye and bitters).
Breakfast is served between 7am and 10am; lunch is 12pm–2pm; dinner runs from 7pm until 11pm. Peg and Patriot is open from 5pm to midnight on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 5pm to 1am on Fridays and Saturdays and 12 noon to 10pm Sunday.
Hot and cold snacks are available 24 hours a day. Order a three-course feast from the Corner Room during opening hours, or munch on a late-night honey-roast ham and gruyère sandwich.
