What's the draw

Jason Atherton disciple Lee Westcott serves impressive, inventive and modern British meat and game dishes from his open kitchen, in a hotel that was formerly Bethnal Green's town hall.

What to drink

If it's cocktails you're after, start at adjacent bar Peg + Patriot to sup on cocktails that are near-scientific in their creation. With your meal, you're in the safe, French hands of sommelier Fred Marti.

What to eat

The choice of an a la carte lunch menu or a tasting menu – if you're in for dinner, go with the latter. Highlights were ale bread with marmite butter, a celeriac and pear starter and superb roe deer.
