Nuno Mendes works his Michelin-starred magic at Viajante downstairs, but if you head up the grand staircase of the Town Hall Hotel and negotiate its winding corridors, you'll eventually discover the Corner Room – a chance to sample his stellar food without the accompanying price tag. Original steel-frame windows, plain wooden tables, dangling vintage lamps and display cabinets set the dressed-down tone, while quirky young staff are on the ball. Dishes such as beautifully textured sea-bass ceviche sprinkled with delicate micro herbs, rump of lamb resting on wonderfully savoury green cereal grains, or confit salmon with fried aubergine and agedashi are some of the most thrilling sub-£15 offerings to be had in the capital, although picking from the short wine list will bump up the bill considerably. Set lunches also offer brilliant value, but note that there are no bookings for dinner.
