Square Meal Review of Corner Room ?

Secreted at the back of the hotel, which once housed Nuno Mendes' Viajante, this tiny, trendy, wood-panelled bistro delivers highfalutin food in more mainstream form. There’s plenty of creativity on show, however, and even a safe order of steak or terrine will likely be a ‘fancy’ (and ‘fantastically crafted’) plate of food. Cuttlefish with salt-baked potatoes and paprika oil demonstrates the kitchen’s way with Iberian flavours, while aged beef with spelt, wild garlic and ricotta is all about fine ingredients. Desserts such as butternut squash with smoked coconut may be ‘hit and miss’, but they’re certainly original. Wine choices are brief but similarly ‘leftfield’, nothing’s too expensive and the set lunch is ‘outstanding value’. Note: no bookings at dinner.

    Munch My Way :: Corner Room, Town Hall Hotel

    The Corner Room is located in the Town Hall Hotel.. In a corner… The Town Hall Hotel is really grand, reminded me of the Mad Men era decor of the 50s and 60s. First, I am struck by the interior and atmosphere of the restaurant.. Very small and cosy and relaxing.. Great to enjoy and share dinner with your friends...

  2. As a sister restaurant of the no. 59 San Pellegrino World’s best restaurant, Viajante you know the design of the dishes is in very good hands. Couple that with the beautiful surroundings of the Town Hall hotel, it makes for one of the best valued dining experiences on offer in London. There are many Michelin star restaurants that don’t even match the cookery skills and ingredients on offer at the Corner Room. For those who want to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine before or after their lunch / dinner the lounge area adjacent to the dining area offers a very good proposition...

    vialaporte :: Corner Room // Bethnal Green // London

    Cambridge Heath might not be somewhere that many Londoners can pinpoint on a map, but there is one really good reason to discover this East London area. While the grimy industrial and housing estates aren’t exactly enticing, the magnificently restored Bethnal Green Town Hall certainly is. Now home to the Town Hall Hotel and Nuno Mendes’s two restaurants, which have been garnering a bit of attention themselves; the more causal of the two is the Corner Room...

  4. As far as my favourite restaurants in London go, Nuno Mendes’ Corner Room has come out unquestionably on top for me for some time now. Ever since my first meal here almost a year ago now, I find myself in this corner of the splendidly refurbished Town Hall Hotel time and time again. Located in the most inconspicuous of rooms on the first floor of what was formerly Bethnal Green’s local town hall, Corner room is a much more casual, informal affair compared to its upmarket sister restaurant downstairs – the much lauded 1 Michelin-starred Viajante. Large Edwardian era windows bathe the simple, understated room in natural light whilst vintage lamps and wooden tables give the space an elegant yet cozy feel. Take a leisurely lunch here on a sunny afternoon and you will get to see this space in its element...

  5. While travelling and escaping the British weather with some U.S. East Coast heat madness, I realised that I was a bit negligent of the blog. To fill the time until I am back with loads of great news and stories from the current trip, I wanted to share my latest East London restaurant discovery: The Corner Room. The Corner Room in Bethnal Green was one of the best places I’ve been recently. It ticks all the boxes, creative, unpretentious in a way how excellent quality is served in a relaxed setting, cool dining room (and yes as the name suggests, the room is in the corner), easy service, daily menu with a handful of choices but each of it makes you think “I want it all”. Ok before I show you some of the mouth-watering dishes, here’s the friend who welcomes you before entering The Corner Room...
