Gregg Wallace, co-presenter of the popular MasterChef TV show, has opened a restaurant at The Bermondsey Square Hotel, which is run by hotel group Bespoke Hotels. The restaurant, which has replaced Alfie’s Bar & Kitchen, matches the hotel’s throwback 1970s style and design.
The restaurant, called ‘Gregg’s Table’, features classic 1970s meals and recipes, all of which are fully updated to appeal to modern tastes. Dishes such as fish fingers, chips and beans appear on the main menu, while starters include mushroom vol-au-vents and two of the desserts available are the decidedly 70s Knickerbocker glory and banana split. The meals available on the menus are some of Wallace’s childhood favourites, with main meals costing between £13 and £19, while starters are just £5 to £7.
Wallace, who grew up in the South East area of London and was a greengrocer in his earlier years, has a love of British 1970s cuisine and has long-since been a fan of the Bermondsey Square Hotel.
“I have been a supporter of the hotel, which has an inbuilt sense of humour and nod to the 1970s,” he said. “It seemed a perfect choice for the launch of Gregg’s Table.”
“We are excited about delivering good honest food, and the hotel has one of London’s best outdoor seating areas – we want to fill it with local residents and hotel guests who just want a drink and to have good food while taking in this part of London.”
The restaurant can seat a total of 80 people inside, while the outside al fresco dining area has further seating and comes with its own menus for drinks and snacks. The hotel itself has been open since 2009 and is ideally placed just a short distance from some of London’s best attractions, such as the TATE Modern art gallery and the Globe theatre.
Gregg’s Table officially opened on February 27th 2012 – for more information please visit the official Bespoke Hotels website at www.bespokehotels.com.
