The aptly named Broadcaster is a lively pub, rooftop bar and dining room housed inside the former BBC Television Centre at White City. Whether you’re joining for pints at the bar, food in the dining room or drinks and a BBQ on its Rooftop, The Broadcaster is sure to become your new favourite local.
The Broadcaster is every bit the contemporary British pub, offering a great atmosphere, a wide selection of drinks and a menu of modern British pub dishes. The main menu boasts a selection of sharer dishes - at the time of writing this includes burrata with pickled golden beetroots and hazelnuts, as well as flatbreads (we like the sound of 'Nduja, onion, purple basil, chilli and honey) and some fresh, superfood-focused salads. For mains, choose from the large plates like hake and chips with crushed peas and homemade tartar, or get in the BBQ mood with something from the grill, such as Saltmarsh lamb cutlets.
There are other menus available too - The Broadcaster whips up crowd-pleasing brunch at the weekends with delights such as avocado, smoked salmon and poached eggs, or fried chicken Benedict with sriracha hollandaise. Come Sunday there's a cracking roast to had, with options of roast Castlemead chicken, Aged Dexter beef and mushroom and beetroot wellington, all served with Yorkshires, gravy and roast potatoes.
On the drinks front, beer fans are well served with a good selection of beers on draught and in bottles, but there's plenty more to choose from. The wine list focuses on Europe and includes skin contact wine as well as more traditional choices, and there are signature cocktails and spritzes too.
As well as all of this, the rooftop is heated, sheltered and dog-friendly, and often hosts events throughout the year.
