Exciting new restaurant opening at Town Hall Hotel!

Lee Westcott is joining our team as Executive Chef of our new restaurant launching in April 2014. Lee, currently Executive Chef of Jason Atherton's 22Ships and Ham & Sherry in Hong Kong, will return to London to open his first solo restaurant, backed by Jason Atherton and Peng Loh, in the previous site of Viajante.

Lee's vast experience has seen him spend over four years working alongside Michelin starred chef Tom Aikens, heading up the kitchen at his Chelsea restaurant to Tom's exacting standards. Prior to that, Lee completed stints at 3 Michelin star Per Se in New York, alongside Rene Redzepi at Noma, and with Gordon Ramsey at Claridges.

Lee will also oversee the menu in Corner Room and the bar, as well as the conference and banqueting menus. Further information about the restaurant will be announced in March 2014. The restaurant and bar will close at the end of February for a full refurbishment.

The imposing Town Hall building, which has stood in the heart of London's vibrant East End since Edwardian times, reopened its doors in April 2010 as the Town Hall Hotel. After a visionary extension and a sensitive restoration under the direction of Rare Architecture, Town Hall Hotel, offers a new concept for London's culturally diverse and energetic East End.
