SquareMeal Review of Typing Room at Town Hall Hotel

Believe the hype surrounding the Typing Room’s chef Lee Westcott: talent-spotted by Tom Aikens and Jason Atherton (his backer here), this twentysomething whizz-kid is destined for the stars. But if ever a restaurant owed its success to the entire team from designer to sommelier, receptionist to lowly commis, this flagship dining room in Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel is it. Every detail is considered, from the welcoming aperitifs and flowers to the Marmite butter, pre-meal snacks, racy wine pairings and by-the-glass sakés. Five- or seven-course tasting menus promise a carefully paced homage to new Nordic cuisine with impeccable British ingredients taking centre stage, from Herdwick lamb with St George’s mushrooms and nettles (a veritable ode to the English countryside) to an unlikely dessert of beetroot, white chocolate and black olive, via attention-grabbing seasonal ideas such as scallops with green strawberry, lardo and sorrel or duckling with apricot, runner beans and mustard. Typing Room’s stylish Scandi-esque interior will endear it to scruffs and suits alike, particularly at lunchtime when £29 pays for three courses.

A great Menu inspired by Lee Westcott with perfectly matched wines from sommelier Fred Marti together with excellent service this was indeed a fantastic dining experience. A lovely friendly welcome and a nice glass of champagne while we looked at the menu and as in previous visits we chose the Tasting Menu but this time we also chose to have matching drinks I say drinks because it was a mixture of wine & saki . After having some delightful snacks came the first highlight the fantastic IPA Sourdough bread with Marmite butter I'll just say it's amazing. Then came the first course of Dorset Char an absolute delight this was followed by the signature Cauliflower dish it's just unbelievable what you can do with this vegetable. This was followed by the highlight of th e Menu of Cod , calpots , chicken & black garlic such a fantastic dish next was the main course of Pork Collar , hospital cabbage & baked apple simply delicious. We then went for the cheese course it was a lovely selection of cheese which was matched with a Plum Saki . Finally dessert of Sheeps yoghurt, apple & dill which finished a truly great meal. All the staff were very friendly & professional making our lunch very memorable & already thinking of returning very soon. I do like the open kitchen and it's amazing that despite so much going on to produce amazing food the kitchen was so quiet. I would definitely recommend a visit if you like modern food cooked to perfection & some great wine & service
